Oh prom… the dates, the ball gowns, the tuxedos…the sweet memories of sweaty gyms filled with balloons and disco lights. Well, prom isn’t always the most memorable event…it can actually be pretty embarrassing to look back and see the mistakes of the past. Here are 23 hilarious photos of prom gone wrong.
1. A rainbow of tuxedos
These guys probably thought they were being creative and cool. Little did they know that look more like a bag of skittles than dashing young gentlemen.
2. Unicorn getting ready
We bet her date was surprised when he showed up and her hair was looking like this.
3. A disaster waiting to happen
First of all, those guys are wearing kilts. That’s cool. Secondly, jumping on a trampoline in a dress like that is just waiting to get a giant tear in it.
4. Duct tape queen and king
Yes, they did actually go to prom dressed like this. We’re loving it.
5. Bet you never saw a Star Wars love story prom photo
Well, here you go. Queen Amidala and Anakin Skywalker. A match made in heaven.
6. Look at this great high school couple…with their kid
Didn’t anybody tell you not to bring your kids until it’s a high school reunion? Yeah, guess not.
7. Girl can’t get a date…so she brings her younger brother
We can’t decide if this is super weird…or totally sweet. He does look very dapper!
8. Well, he’s clearly got one thing on his mind
This kid is ready for some action…as you can tell.
9. Camouflage prom outfits
We almost can’t even see them outside with the trees and dirt because their outfits blend in so well.
10. Getting down and dirty
Was this how the kids got jiggy with it at your high school prom? If not, you’re missing out.
11. McDonald’s date
Because your prom date deserves the finer things in life…like a date to a fast food restaurant.
12. Cheap prom photos
We’re figuring this was the most romantic place they could find for a photo op…the gas station.
13. The bridge fell down
Everyone fell in and got soaked…everyone except the couple on the end.
14. You’re can’t sit with us
Clearly, someone is not wanted in this prom photo.
15. Use the step stool
It really sucks when your date is taller than you.
16. Double color tux
That way, this guy can have two dates at once. Isn’t there a name for that, like pimp or something like that?
17. Bubble wrap dress
We’re actually pretty impressed by this. Way to be creative and cute! We hope people weren’t too busy popping your air bubbles all night long.
18. One of these is not like the other
And…the guy in the middle’s date decided to bail…
19. Those guys on the end– tell ’em to get outta here
No gweedos allowed around here. Take off your fake tan and stop styling your hair like a douche.
20. Superhero prom dates
These girl win awards for having the most epic prom dates ever.
21. Date with a cow
This girl decided to take her dairy cow to the prom when no one asked her.
22. Um, ew?
Everything about this photo is just so wrong.
23. The wrong way to ask a date to prom
Don’t burn it into your skin. She won’t be impressed by that.
