Wow, I JUST realized as I sold my old prom gown today that my wedding dress is so so similar to both of the prom dresses I wore! Case in point:
Junior prom: sweetheart neckline, straps, sheath, beaded
Senior prom: sweetheart neckline, beaded, sheath
My bridal gown: Sweetheart neckline, straps, beaded, sheath(ish)
I guess my style has been pretty consistent with what I like! Anyone else’s wedding gowns end up to be eerily similar to your prom gown? Or was it way opposite? Post pictures please 🙂

I could see that happening– people have a certain style they like, and they know it works for them!
I’m glad my wedding dress did not look like my prom dress– my prom was in 1994, an it was totally goth! LOL. I don’t have any photos or else I’d share 🙂

Wow! You have specific preferences, I wish I was so decisive.
This was so long ago…
Not quite to dress shopping yet, but I can see myself (in the pink, 4th from left) in a sheath of some sort.
Something like this:
The girl in the red on her wedding day:
And the girl in the teal (first from left) bought this dress:
Prom was nearly 10 years ago for us, though, and big poofy dresses and A line dresses were all the rage.

You know, until I saw this post, I hadn’t though about it…but its so true!!!!

I suppose it makes sense, since people usually have their own style and look good in it. I haven’t picked a dress yet but I’ve been looking at styles that are pretty similar to my prom and homecoming dresses 🙂

This is a great thread! I don’t think I’ll end up contributing though: Both of my prom dresses were sheaths (and one was tea length), and I am really liking A line shapes for my wedding gown.

I guess some would say my senior year prom dress could be a wedding dress. My dresses really are not that similar except they are both ballgown style and white lol. Prom and my wedding are the only days I can pull off the ball gown. I will throw in a pic of my junior prom too just for fun.
here is my junior year prom dress. (I am the girl in the pink dress 2nd from the left. My Fi is the guy with the hot pink tie on the right end. We were best friends and almost went together but went with different friends instead.)
Here is my senior year prom dress…..im the one in white 🙂 thats my lil sis and Maid/Matron of Honor with me.
and here is my wedding dress 🙂

I totally have to dig out a prom photo burried away, the 2 dresses definitely have similar elements.

I’m glad to say its NOT similar to my prom dresses, because I wore those awful two piece dresses both years! Ha! Not sure what I was thinking… nothing about showing your bellybutton screams ‘formal’. But I have stuck with a sweetheart neckline for each dress including my wedding dress!

When I went dress shopping my mom would pull out dresses for me to see they were pretty but reminded me of my prom dress so I usually didn’t try them on. My wedding dress is an A-line with pickups and my prom was more a sheath dress.

My dress is nothing like any of my high school formal dresses. I normally went for column dresses or A-lines, but my wedding dress is a massive ballgown. I think, however, that the only reason the styles aren’t similar is that I couldn’t find any massive ballgowns I really liked that were anywhere near my budget back in high school.

THis is so funny because original thats what i thought i would end up buying because my senior prom dress was like my dream dress. But i did end up with something totally different. Got to say the love the progression of photos from everyones junior to senior to wedding. Its sorta a cool flashback through time!

I’d have to dig a little to find mine but there are definitely some similar elements — all have straps (I never ever went for the strapless style), and all have a fit and flair style rather than being poofy…and all have some sort of a back detail!! Crazy!

@Grizz: LoL!! Mine was a 2-piece dress too! I’m glad my wedding dress is nothing like it.
