To go to prom… or to not go to prom… that is the question asked by so many high school students! Should you go to prom? Prom is a high school tradition that many consider to be a rite of passage as the school year comes to an end. There is so much planning and preparation that goes into this school dance; from promposals, to finding the perfect outfit, to even planning what you’re going to do afterward! Honestly, sometimes all this can feel overwhelming and maybe you’re starting to feel like you don’t want to go to the dance. Well, again there is a reason that this tradition has stood the test of time year after year! Before you say “No” to your ticket to prom, here are some things you should take into consideration as reasons why you should make your way down to the dance floor after all!

1. It’s an Excuse to Dress Up!

Forget about the dates and dancing, and let’s talk about the fashion of it all! How often do you and your friends get the chance to get all glammed up together? Let me tell you… it’s not that often! Getting dressed up with the hair, makeup, nails, and (of course) your stunning prom dress is honestly so much fun! Prom is the perfect time to ditch your everyday hoodie and jeans that you wear to school and really show a new side to your style! There are also many different kinds of looks to choose from: From princess ball gowns to edgy dresses with high slits or even maybe you’re not into dresses and want to rock a jumpsuit! Use prom as your perfect opportunity to get dolled up and strut your stuff!

2. Pictures to Last a Lifetime

At prom you will be taking LOTS of photos! From the cute yet awkward staged prom couple photos to the adorable and fun candid pictures with your friend. Pictures have the time traveling ability to help take you back to a certain moment in your life. Also lets be honest, some of these images will make for incredible throwback or #GlowUp images later on in life. Capture these moments with your friends and have the images to cherish forever!

3. Create Memories with Friends

Ditch the date, and go to prom with your friends! High school is all about creating memories and friendships with people who might just end up being your friends for life. Use prom as an opportunity to celebrate those friendships and memories y’all have created with one another! And it’s also not just about going to the dance with friends, but also going shopping for the dance, getting dinner before, and partying it up after that all are a part of the experience.

4. Special Night with your Sweetie

Maybe you are more of a hopeless romantic type… Well then, prom is honestly THE perfect date night! Whether you have a significant other or have been crushing on the cutie who sits next to you in math, prom is the chance to shoot your shot with them! Find a fun, quirky, or romantic promposal way to ask them to the dance. Then once the day of the prom arrives, start the night with flowers, pictures, matching outfits, have a romantic dinner, and then spend the rest of the night with music, dancing, and enjoying each other's company. There’s a reason so many teen movies and novels are centered around prom! It’s romantic, fun, and the perfect night to remember in high school.

5. Celebrate the End of an Era

Prom is a once in a lifetime opportunity to round off some of the best years of your life! As sad as it is to say… Prom also very well could be one of the last days you and your friends are all together in a group at the exact same time for a while. Pretty soon, many of your friends will be on their way to college, careers, and entirely new life chapters. Don’t be one of those people who end up regretting not going later on in life.
