Senior Prom Dress Inspiration


Sophia Tharas and Maria Francisco

Prom is an important part of the High School experience. Senior Prom is much more than just a dance; it’s all part of a much greater picture. With the entire graduating class brought together in one night, Prom acts as a  symbol of the four years we’ve spent together, a great sense of pride for finishing high school and the new beginnings we’re all embarking on together. The class of 2023’s Prom is on May 26th with the following theme of masquerade. Per usual, preparing for prom is always stressful, between what dress to wear and who you’re going with. With a little over two months to prepare, prom is a time to get creative so just have fun with it! 

Don’t forget to book a hair and makeup appointment in advance to avoid any last-minute mishaps. DHS Seniors have a prom dress page where you can see what others are wearing and also have a chance to post your own, the User is dhs_senior_prom2023. Also, make sure to coordinate with your friends and plan a fun group pre-prom activity, like taking pictures at a nearby park or having a fancy dinner together. Remember, prom is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so make the most of it and enjoy every moment!

Not everyone has Fairy Godmothers like Cinderella to make their perfect outfit appear out of thin air.
