What Is Your Biggest Prom Regret?

From extravagant proposals to $1,400 dresses, are proms the new weddings? Reading the New York Post piece on pricey proms, I'm baffled that girls are not just getting $1,000-plus prom dresses, they are buying wedding-esque white, celebrity-inspired dresses and renting $9,000-a-night double-decker Hummers. I remember prom being important and fun, but "splurging" on a dress back then was closer to $300, and I'm glad I held on to my savings for college instead of wasting it on one high school night. My prom night was a blast and super tame (no crazy lost virginity stories), ending with a group of us staying up all night before going to my best friend's date's swim meet at the crack of dawn.

Whether you got a little too crazy or not crazy enough, your date was a disaster, or you spent your college fund on a hideous dress, what is your biggest prom regret? Or do you not regret anything?

Junior prom. My hair! I tried to copy this crazy hair that looked good on the magazine but didn't on me. There was no turning back since I didn't do any trial runs before. Just that extra hour before prom. I went classic for senior prom. Much, much better.

I actually didn't go to my "prom" Junior year, but I did go to my Senior Ball with one of my closest guy friends, and it was a blast. No pressure, just fun and dancing. My only minor regret I would say is my dress---it was 40s Hollywood glamour and gorgeous---but in retrospect, I wish I'd done the princess ball gown look.

My biggest regret is going. Granted, I went for about 15 minutes and snuck out, but I'm sorry I wasted my parents' money on a dress and limo and stuff.

Agreed, not sneaking booze in for sure.

I'm with Cubby on this one. I went as a freshman, realized how lame it was, and skipped the Prom when I was old enough to go without an upperclassman date. I have no regrets though, when I did go it was with just a friend so it was fun, no date pressure.

I regret going at all. I went as a sophomore it was awful. I wasn't even tempted to go junior or senior years.

I regret that I let not having a date keep me from going. I easily could have found a group of girls to go with.

My regret is the shoes I wore. I rarely wore heels and I decided to wear 4 inch heels to prom. My feet were killing me before the prom even started!

Actually, my regret is not going.

I don't think I have any regrets. I got asked to two proms, and I asked my date for two other proms ( i went to an all-girls school) I think what worked for me was going with people that were "just" friends...going with a date-date caused a lot of drama with friends...my dates and i could just chill and have fun :-)
