We all know how chaotic prom season is. First you need to figure out the seating arrangements which can be downright irritating when you have an extra seat that refuses to be filled. Then there’s the matter of deciding whether to go with a date or solo (with a group of friends). After that, there’s still the dreaded limo conversation (“to take a limo or to not take a limo, that is the question”). My friends and I did a limo junior year, but when senior year rolled around, I was not in the mood. I remember complaining to one of my friends and comparing it to an oversized and overpriced hotdog. For me, once was enough.

Once all of that is out of the way, the dress becomes your main concern. Emphasis on concern. When you wait three weeks prior to the prom to find your dress, you may be in for a rude awakening. It will turn you into a stressed, anxiety-filled ball of nerves which is not what you need during your last few months of school. This should be an exciting time.

Now, we all know how difficult it can be to pick out a dress when you have such a large selection to choose from. However, I thought it may be helpful to compile a list of cinderella-inspired dresses that will, hopefully, give you some inspiration. Without further ado, let’s find you that perfect dress that will make you the belle of the ball! (Also, as a side note, I will start with the most expensive dresses and end with the least expensive).
