The prom dress of my daughter’s dreams. Sobbing not because prom is canceled this year but because she looks like a million dollars in it 💫 pic.twitter.com/rw2aqdHY5B— Leslie💙Decker (@deckergirl1) March 31, 2020
I was going to wear this dress for my Senior Prom. But, with Senior year now being over I’ll never get the opportunity to go. My bf and I couldn’t attend prom last year. So now we will never get the special moment to go together. pic.twitter.com/WNcLfGF8B7— G I A N N A 🦋 (@GiannaCocuzza) March 31, 2020
It’s not the best picture. Lol. But this is when I went to prom 6 years ago. Sending all my love to everyone that won’t be able to go to their prom this year. I’m hoping you get your chance. 💙 #NationalPromDay pic.twitter.com/HUcE2mfqaT— Briana Resendez (@resendez_briana) March 31, 2020
