#15 A Surprise Inside…
Girls go through a lot getting ready for an event as special as prom. From getting the perfect manicure to spending hours on makeup, no detail can be left out. However, this girl got more than she bargained for during her hairstyling appointment. We’re guessing this wasn’t the surprise she was hoping to find…
#14 This Heartwarming Act
The title of Prom King and Queen is something everyone secretly hopes for. While the crown itself may end up lost or stuck in an old box of memories, the title is something that will follow you from reunion to reunion. We think this king earned his title more than anyone else!
#13 Accessorized with Confidence
Although prom can cause a lot of stress in a young adult’s life, it can also cause their confidence to skyrocket! After hours of searching stores and online, finding the perfect dress can make even the most self-conscious girl feel her best. After all, confidence is the best accessory!
#12 A Truly Unique Dress
Finding the perfect prom dress is often not budget friendly — luckily this girl found a way to avoid breaking the bank! Not only is she guaranteed to be the only one wearing that dress, she also has a pretty good story to tell! We think we’ll be seeing more from her in the fashion world…
#11 Nailed It!
Sometimes, we get a little too caught up in the details of things. By making sure everything is perfect, we miss out on the little things. This girl didn’t let perfection get to her head and instead had a pretty cute and sentimental idea to get her nails done!
#10 Beauty on a Budget
Prom can get pretty expensive pretty fast — even the tickets to the dance cost around a hundred bucks a piece! On top of that, there’s the limo, the pictures, the hair and makeup, and of course the dress! Luckily this girl didn’t let prom ruin her budget, and she still felt fabulous!
#9 This Spectacular Guy
This guy definitely takes the cake for making his lady’s night one to never forget. Driving four and a half hours may have been a little time-consuming, but we’re sure it made for an evening his girlfriend will cherish forever! Just imagine the surprised look on her face when he showed up!
#8 A Night of Regret
Not all prom nights go smoothly — something this girl knows all too well! While we’re sure she got every detail exactly right, her deadbeat date likely ruined the evening. Considering she still thinks about it five years later, we’re guessing her prom was not everything she dreamed of!
#7 Tomboys Want Prom Too
The allure of getting perfectly manicured and dolled up in the most beautiful dress possible is difficult for any young woman to not want, tomboys included! Though this girl may keep far away from anything deemed “girlie,” she still wants to feel beautiful at her prom just like anyone else!
#6 Sisterly Love
This confession may just win the best sister award. Instead of wanting her sister to miss out on such an important experience like she did, she went above any beyond to make sure she had the time of her life. Not all girls share this sense of selflessness, just look at the next confession on the list!
#5 A Little Bit of Revenge…
This prom confession may be a little bit too evil… Instead of “acting like it was cool” she maybe should have let her friend know how she actually felt. Instead, she decided to not only ruin her own prom but likely her friend’s as well. That’s one way to have a prom you won’t forget…
#4 Confidence is Key
While prom is often hyped up to be a date function with your high school sweetheart, this confession proves going solo isn’t something to be afraid of! Although she may have gone alone in the beginning, she found her confidence along the way – something way better than any date!
#3 A Happy Ending
Although this could have gone horribly wrong, this prom confession actually turned out to be pretty cute. It goes to show it doesn’t matter who’s popular and who’s not, love has no boundaries. Check out the next confession on the list for another joke with a slightly different ending…
#2 Not Such a Funny Joke…
Even though this may have started out as a joke, someone else is laughing now! Evidently, prom with her sister’s boyfriend caused sparks to fly enough to justify a wedding. This will likely lead to some pretty uncomfortable family gatherings… Hopefully, her sister was understanding about the new love birds!
#1 The Masked Teacher
This confession leaves us with slightly mixed feelings. While it’s pretty sweet of this teacher to give attention to the girls without a date, the situation could have ended very differently. Luckily no one knew he was the history teacher, sometimes it’s best for a masked vigilante to stay masked!
Although these prom confessions were mostly sweet, some of them definitely caused some issues – just look at #5 on the list! Luckily prom isn’t the biggest night of anyone’s life, and sometimes the quirky moments end up being the most memorable. Hopefully, your prom went better than most of these, and you didn’t find a fake nail in your hair at the end of the night – yikes!
Regardless of how these prom nights may have ended, we hope yours was a night to never forget, in a good way! If not, maybe we will see your confession on another list somewhere!
