Lights shining down on sparkly dresses worn by girls with their hair and make-up done perfectly, guys in tuxedos and stretch limos parked around every corner. Friends lining up on stair cases to take pictures and capture the memories being shared. It is a night to remember, a dream come true and few dread. That is right, it is time for… prom.

For some girls, prom is a dream come true, right along side with their wedding.

“I’m excited to see everyone’s dresses,” senior Peyton Croaker said. “And secretly, I’m hoping no one else shows up in my dress.”

However, for others, prom is a just an overly expensive night. It’s all about getting dolled up and feeling special; wearing a $500 dress, $100 pair of shoes, pricy hair and makeup with the occasional spray tan, along with the cost of the limo, dinner and the unforgettable semi-professional photos. The unforgettable night to some only seems like a pile of stress building up and waiting to overtake others.

“Prom is overrated and people have such high expectations for it,” junior Izzy Echartea said. “If I don’t go to prom, I will have more fun being by myself and not being uncomfortable being in the middle of everyone dancing.”

Even a few students going to prom are only slightly looking forward to attending.

“I’m kinda excited, but I’m not really into all of that,” junior Sophie Braud said.

For those students who have chosen to not attend at all, they feel as if it is better to not even bother with the glitz and glamour of such a big event.

“This generation is all about standing out,” senior Kinsey Tanner said. “What better way to stand out than to attend a prom alternative?”

Senior Rachel Schick said she feels like prom is overrated and would feel like she could have more fun just hanging out with friends outside of prom.
