HelloGiggles and BCBGeneration are pleased to announce the ten winners of our Prom Dress Giveaway. We took a snippet of each entry so you can get to know each girl and see how they’re going to make their prom the best night ever.
Henry M. Jackson High School
My best friends and I have been ogling over W Mag and Red Carpet dresses since the senioritis kicked in ohhhh around six months ago. I imagine my perfect dream date showing up in a fitted suit, rocking a skinny tie and my best friends arrive all smiles. I come downstairs in my BCBGeneration dress and eyes lock with my date. Later on in the limo my date whispers I look beautiful, I blush and lean in to say thank you. I dance the night away to top 40 radio; staying up all night to watch the sunrise. And even if my dreams don’t come true like that prom will still be the best night ever.
Livonia Stevenson High school
For every teenage girl, prom seems to be a right of passage. Well, this year it’s my turn. Seeing everyone around me buying their prom dresses gets me excited for a very memorable night. I don’t have a date to prom but you know what, I don’t care. I am truly more excited about all of the planning and the night itself. You do not need a date to make prom night memorable.
I’ve already come up with some silly dance moves, and I’m not afraid to show them! After prom, I’ll be participating in laser tag, obstacle courses, and even mechanical bull-riding! This is MY night, and I’m lettin’ loose!
Badger High School
I’m going to wear a dress that I love, not one that fits the status quo. I’m going to twist my red mane into a fun updo and let my friend paint little tuxedos on my nails like they saw on Pinterest. I’m going to take time to enjoy the fleeting moments of my high school life. I’m going to bring my life-size cutout of Robert Pattinson as my date. I’m going to pretend I won prom queen all night and whip out my “Queen wave.” I’m going to eat the damn good chocolate cake, even if all the other girls at my table push it away.
Eastridge Senior High School
There are probably a good number of activities I won’t do, and frankly, I don’t associate “the best night of my life” with “doing everything that is illegal and reckless” simply because it’s what’s expected. I do expect to go with a group of people I feel comfortable sharing a car ride and a sarcastic joke or two with, complimenting everyone on their choice of attire, and taking the goofiest photos in the photo booth I was informed we’re having. (Mustache prop, anyone?)
Friendswood High School
This year, I’ve decided I’m making a loser of myself and letting loose this year at Prom 2012, or as I’m calling it: LoserProm 2012, where the awkward dancing never ends. Dream night, right? My best guy friend, theatre kid and fellow lover of awkward dancing, liked my plan enough to accompany me to my LoserProm, where we are going to rock out and dance like it’s 1999.
Meredith Kayla Messier
Rutland High School
[My best friend and I are] both freshly single, we just want to live it up and dance our asses off in our small, dumb town to show that we can have a cliché, suburban, memory making, dream-fulfilling perfectly perfect high school prom (sans the cheap hotel sex, limo puking, awkward prom poses….well, maybe with a few awkward prom poses) without our exes who can go TO THE LEFT because this is the year of the boss bitch and living your best life (Oprah Winfrey, 2kforever).
The night of May 26, 2012 will likely be the best night of the year. After fixing my hair and makeup for the hundredth time, and making sure that my dress looks alright, I am going to meet with my friends to take an exorbitant amount of pictures before we depart to the Museum of Science in Boston. This may sound odd because the idea of holding a prom at a science museum sounds a bit strange to most people, and while I admit that though I do agree that this is abnormal, my excitement outweighs my concern.
Stevenson High School
While planning a prom may be beyond stressful, it’s important to remember what the event represents. Amongst all the headache of matching the tablecloths to the chair covers, it’s a celebration of our accomplishments and a farewell to high school. I plan on making prom my best night ever by making memories, rocking a killer up-do, dancing my butt off, and not caring whether or not the balloon arch is centered over the dance floor.
James I. O’Neill High School
Prom, prom, prom. It seems to be the only thing on everyone’s minds lately, which has me concerned. Should I have begun planning this “magical” night in the womb? Apparently, I missed the memo when all of my classmates opened up saving’s accounts specifically for prom. Well, better late than never.
