5 Biggest Prom Misconceptions You Should not Fall into
1. You Need To Have A Date
This simply is not true, no matter how much pressure you feel from your parents or your classmates about it. Admit it: having a date doesn't always make the night more fun and having fun should be exactly what prom is about. So stop stressing if you'd rather spend the night hanging out with a bunch of your best friends than worrying about an awkward date situation.
2. Professional Photos Are The Only Way To Go
The best kind of photographs aren't ones that are staged with cheesy photographers and cost an arm and a leg -- they're the ones you take of yourselves, laughing with friends and sharing in impromptu memories. You can take pictures on your cell phone and make them look professional and beautiful with a few simple clicks.
3. Limos Are The Only Means Of Transportation
There are a number of other ways to get to and from the prom without spending your entire allowance (and then some). Think outside of the box and don't rule out other transportation ideas like old-fashioned cars, school buses, and even hitching a ride with friends or your parents.
4. Fancy Prom Attire Is A Must
Dressing up to the nines and rocking tiaras, gowns and expensive tuxes is not necessary when planning your prom attire. The more comfortable you feel in the outfit you pick, the more fun you will have.
5. You NEED To Go
The traditional idea is that you absolutely must go for the prom or you will be missing out on some life-changing event. Here's the truth: If you don't want to go, you shouldn't feel like you have to. In fact, skipping prom isn't going to mean anything in the grand scheme of your life. It's really not a "rite of passage" and if you know your life will feel less stressful staying home on prom night, then do it.
