Prom Queen

Let’s face it. The whole process of electing a prom queen is a popularity contest. If you are the most popular girl in school there is a good chance that you will win the coveted title on prom night. If you’re not, you have your work cut out for you, but being prom queen is not unattainable for you. There are certain things you can do to increase your chances. Despite the royal title, the quest for prom queen is a democratic process so you need to find a way to get those extra votes that will put you over the top.

To begin with, it’s all about the dress. Your prom dress makes a statement about you and wearing a new style prom dress from a top designer will attract the attention that you need to be considered for prom queen. Beauty shines through when you have a prom dress on that fits both your body and your personality. It can give you the self confidence you need to look and feel regal throughout the entire event.

The next key is to be nice to people, everyone, not just the people you like. This is politics. If you really want to wear that crown at the end of the evening you need to make an impression on your fellow students. The most popular girl in school is popular because she hangs out with the popular people, but there is a large segment of the student body that does not fall into that category. This is where your votes are.

Another factor in the decision process is your prom date. Other students won’t just be looking at you; they’ll be looking at who you are with. If you and your prom date are comfortable together and operate as a team throughout the evening people will notice and the odds will tip in your favor. Hold your head up, treat each other with respect, and smile warmly when someone stops by to chat. Even if you don’t win the prom queen title, you’ll feel better about yourself and you may just make a new friend or two that you didn’t have before.


  1. …Prom is everything during senior year, but then after that, life goes on. Wish I could tell myself not to be to consumed by it all. But then again, would I probably won’t listen, lol.

  2. prom is so much fun, my oldest is going into her jr year this fall and i can’t wait for her to go to prom.

  3. Wow.. I enjoy learning about prom and prom fashion from your blog, even though I never wish to be a prom queen at all..

  4. The school I attended was an all girls school and we did not have a Prom Queen. We did have a “Seniors Ball” but it was just like a formal party where you brought your own date, and your parents picked you up from the venue at 11pm. Not fun at all. Haha.

  5. Beauty really shines through when you pick the right dress! Prom dress def makes a statement – it´s all about this wow impression!

  6. Prom queen was always about popularity in my school. I would have liked to win, but was never destined to.

  7. I was good friend with our prom queen. Our king was voted on because none of the other candidates wanted the position and we really blessed their nights with our votes.

  8. I remember many years ago my mother and I went looking for a prom dress for my first prom. It was not the most pleasant experience, to say the least! I was being WAY too particular, because I wanted it to be perfect.

  9. It is so interesting to read about how these prom elections are—yes, it does sound a bit like politics lol. But I am sure it is one of the most anticipated events in a high school experience!

  10. Totally was not a prom queen at all. My date was just as unpopular as I was and now we have totally turned things around. I am and was not a political person. Lots of people I just do not like and I do not do well acting like I do. Great points in the post.
