My high school’s prom will be April 23rd, and I’m so excited. My birthday is barely a week before, so I can actually go! Of course, there’s a certain guy I’d like to go with, but I’d try to have fun no matter what. I just hope I get asked!

my high school’s prom is May 6th. I get to make my dress to fit me and my guy has already rented his tux… now i just hafta find some white gloves… any suggestions?

My prom is May 7th. I have already gotten my dress, but I need to get it altered and SOON! I also need some jewelry and white gloves (maybe) which I will be doing soon.

And dr jay dee, you can probably find the white gloves at Claire’s or Afterthoughts. Check those places out if either one is close by. That is where I am going to check. I am not too sure what they would cost at either place though, sorry.

My Christian high school’s “prom” is on May 12th this year. Last year it was fun to dress up and get my hair done; but the real fun isn’t really the actual “prom”, but the fun parties with friends after.

My ‘formal night’ is on April 15. I can hardly wait! My home school senior class is hosting it. My best friend is taking me. We don’t dance or anything. But we eat & talk & watch home movies and play games. It’s going to be at a big trading in Alabama. I’m still trying to find an affortable modest dress… I’m sooo excited!!

I will be 18 this year and have never been to a prom! Ours is in May. Any suggestions on how I can get a date if there are no mormons in my school besides me?

yeah, so i live in Virginia, and our prom isnt until june 16. talk about like a month or two later than everyone else!

i hope to get asked too, but i dont think i will. i already have a guy in mind that i can ask. i figure that if i want a date, i better be willing to ask someone.

My prom is April 1st, but it’s not really a prom. It’s a formal that I do with Praise and Dance Cotillion.

You will not have to alter a dress for modesty if you purchase it from They have a great selection of modest prom dress.

I can’t believe how lucky I am! I turn 16 the day of prom at my school! That’s what I call cutting it close to the deadline, to be a joker. My birthday and prom day this year is May 9th. It is a Night at the Oscars theme, and though I’m not sure my dress matches this theme, I hope it’ll be a good time. My date is a bit questionable, but I know I can trust him. He’s just an awesome guy who like me and I like him. So, yeah, this sweet sixteen is gonna be the best ever!
