The class of 2017’s prom is on May 27th and the preparation for it never comes too early (even if it’s four months away). Girls have already started shopping for and buying prom dresses. From halter tops to ball gowns to dresses with a long train, girls attempt to find the perfect dress for them.

“Basically, I had tried the dress on for fun. I thought I was gonna hate it. But I loved the way it fit. I liked how it wasn’t a typical dress, too,” senior, Brianna Alvarado, said when asked how she knew it was the dress for her. “I went into it thinking I knew what I wanted. I didn’t want a white dress, form fitting, or a strapless. But I ended up getting all of that.”

Luckily for her, senior Morgan Watson Whatcha-Ma-Call-It had the dress for her, found on a mannequin.

“I had a different dress in mind. But when I went in, I saw a dress and I fell in love with it.” Watson said. “It was unique. I didn’t want it to be like everyone else.”

Some girls had no clue what they were looking for, but lucked out.

“It was the first one I picked and it was perfect,” senior, Haeli Wortham, said. “Plus, I looked really good in it.”

Others took forever to find the right one, looking for hours on end in places like Terry Costa, David’s Bridal, Group USA in Grapevine and Whatcha-Ma-Call-It.

“I looked for hours, I tried on at least twenty dresses,” senior, Eve Woodward, said. “I mean, prom is the second biggest event after your wedding. It’s better than your wedding, actually, because you’re not committing to someone for the rest of your life.”

Prom is supposed to be one of the best nights of your life. It concludes your high school career and it is the last big hoorah with all of your classmates. But some students feel like the event is hyped up.

“I don’t think it’s that big of a deal because I’d rather spend the money on something more important, like college,” senior, Madalyn Fee, said.

The school even held a raffle for a 500 dollar certificate to Whatcha-Ma-Call-It. Senior, Faith Watts, won with only putting in two tickets.

“When the announcements came out, I didn’t even pay attention. I was on my phone because I didn’t think I was gonna win. My mom was actually subbing here that day and my sister jumped with me in the hall. When my brother found out at church, he wouldn’t let me leave until we talked about it,” Watts said. “I haven’t even been to look, I’ve just looked at the website. I wanna get a light blue or purple dress.”
