I can’t believe prom season is upon us. What a fascinating time in a teenage girl’s life! Planning prom night is just as exciting to a teenage girl as a bride is excited about planning her wedding. Just as a bride obsesses over finding the perfect wedding dress, a teen obsesses over her prom dress as well.
The decorations. The lights. The dress. Tell me what teen doesn’t wait for her prom night to come?
I miss helping my oldest daughter find a gorgeous dress for her magical night. She like to plan months ahead of time. Heck, I think we started planning her special night before she was even asked. She figured that even if she wasn’t asked, she could always go with a group of her girlfriends.
We scoured over magazines, stores and online dress shops looking at all sorts of different styles of dresses, like this beautiful strapless gown from http://www.jenjenhouse.com.
Or, how about these two absolutely drop dead gorgeous gowns?
I think these gowns would make any girl feel like a princess on her special night.
Since I didn’t go to my prom (sigh, long story..), I liked to live vicariously through her. Problem is, her taste is different then mine, so we would disagree alot on which dress to get. I like long, she likes short. I like sleeves, she likes straps. It would end up as a big fight about what dress she was going to wear to her prom.
Guess who would win?
Since she is all grown up now with children, I can’t wait until my youngest daughter is a teen (wait, did I REALLY just say that?). Just kidding, but when she does reach prom age, I hope she will let me help pick out her beautiful prom dress as well.
And I hope she shares my same taste!
