Prom season has always been one of the most anticipated moments of a teenager’s life. Most high school students plan months ahead to figure out what they are wearing, who they are going with, and how they plan to arrive.
In 2023, not much has changed but each year these events are becoming more grandiose. This year the main trend is a send-off party which includes a fancy photo shoot, a luxury car, home decorations, and if you’re lucky a viral moment.
Here are six social media moments that captured some of the prom season’s fun.
