    We actually did a Throwback Thursday of our prom/wedding photos. No they are nothing alike, still love both dresses, but I went with a straight dress for prom. Nearby schools did more hoop dresses but ours was more straight dresses.

    I was going to say not at all, but actually the silouhettes are similar. Both strapless A-lines. But everything else – the material, color, the waist line – is different. My prom and my wedding were 13 years apart so I would hope they would be different, as styles change a lot in a decade.

    Alyx19:  No thank God, but I was a size 14 for my prom and a size 4 on my wedding day so finding a prom dress that fit, much less looked good, was very difficult.  I think I picked the first dress I could zip up.  I really hope things are different now, us bigger girls deserve to have a fun dress-shopping experience too!

    Mine are totally different. My prom dress was such the trend that year. Where as my wedding dress isnt a typical wedding dress, a lot simpler! More my style, now. …you can probable guess which is which! Haha 

    Ohh, and my prom dress actually cost double my wedding dress!

    No. My junior prom dress was a long sheath style, which I would not be able to pull off now without a LOT of spanx. The biggest difference between my wedding dress and prom dress is length. Prom dresses were long, and wedding dress is going to be shorter.

    The only real similarity is that I have a light green sash for both (completely by accident.) I wasn’t a big dress wearer in high school so I wanted something very simple and basic.

    I didn’t even think about it, but they are pretty similar. Both slim a-lines. My wedding gown wont be strapless when it’s finished though.

    My prom dresses were simpler-no beading or lace. But they and my wedding gown were  all tea length (Right below the ankle on me) and had pretty much the same shape. Just a flattering look for my figure. No pictures, sorry!

    I made all three of them (two prom dresses and one wedding dress), but that’s the only similarity. I didn’t take prom very seriously – one year I literally wore a gypsy costume, and the other year I went for a “native american princess” vibe, lol. My wedding dress was a champagne sheath with wide, drapy arms.
