7 Reasons Why You Should Go to Prom

Prom season is upon us and many girls and guys are building up the courage to ask out their crush! And of course, there’s the fun of prom shopping. But there are also people who opted out of the prom experience and are making plans to do other things alone or with friends. Don't be that person! Check out these reasons why you should go to prom.

Dressing Up

You can't deny that getting dressed up for a night out is so much fun. Sure, the preparation can be a hassle, like finding the perfect dress and deciding on the perfect hairstyle, but when you're all done and you finally take a look in the mirror, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Plus, one of the best parts of prom is showing off how good you look!

It’s Fun!

Prom night isn't just about dancing! There will be great food, a photo booth, and maybe even a dessert table. So don't worry about having two left feet. Enjoy the atmosphere and focus on having a great night.


Your Parents Will Enjoy It

Moms especially love to see their sons and daughters get dressed up and sent off to enjoy their prom night! When you're happy, your parents are happy and they'll probably cry when they see how beautiful and grown up you look. Plus this gives them a great excuse to invite friends and family, and take a bunch of pictures.

It's a Party!

Who doesn't love a party? No one cares if you can't dance or if you come without a date. You are there to have one of the best nights ever. Life is short and you don't want to regret not going to prom. So let loose and have fun!


If you happen to be going to prom with a date, it will for sure be a romantic night. You're both dressed up, you can have professional pictures taken, and dance the night away. But even if you happen to be single and going with friends, imagine locking eyes with someone across the room (maybe even your crush) and they get up the courage to ask you to dance. This could be it! What you've finally been waiting for. Prom is all about the unexpected.

After Party

Oh yes, you can have a party after the party! After prom, get together with a group of friends and grab some food, watch movies, and just chill. No one wants the night to end right when prom is over, so keep it going! Also, hitting up the 24-hour breakfast place at 3am with your friends is always epic.

It's Prom!

The final reason to go to your high school prom is because it's prom!!! This is the last big event that you'll have in your high school career. Prom is the night to honor your teenage years. So plan to go, enjoy the time you spend with your friends, and make the night a memory that will last forever.
