People Share The Embarrassing Prom Fails That Made Their Nights Unforgettable

I have to admit something: I never got to go to my prom. Sad, I know. But if you did go, did it all go according to plan? Or did you happen to have some kind of disaster?

Well, if you did, don't feel too bad. As it turns out, other people didn't end up with a dream prom either. So let's check out some interesting stories below. Shall we?

This Perfect Picture Venue

Ah, ha, ha! And now they have the most picture to summarize the day. Don't you think so, too? I would totally frame this one and hang it up somewhere. Their expressions are priceless.

This Not-So-Perfect Timing

Talking about bad timing here, huh? At least they should have taken their names off the king and queen draw or picked another couple. Am I right? That must've been one awkward silent dance. Let's move on.

This Uneventful Night

Oh man, what else could have gone wrong on this night? I'm wondering, ha, ha. Did this person even make it to the prom? The suspense is killing me here. I really need to know how this ended.

This Unpleasant Situation

Wow, I don't envy this guy. I wonder what his uncle's reaction was when he returned the car? Did he try to clean it up, or did he just give up? What do you think happened here, huh?

This Dress Fail

See, this is exactly why I don't usually shop in popular stores. I would hate for this to happen to me. One time I went to a club and saw a girl wearing the same dress as me, and I spent the whole night trying to dodge her, lol.

This Tan Obsession

Wowza! I want to see the pictures, ha, ha. There was a time when I was totally obsessed with getting a tan, so I can sympathize with this lady here. I guess she learned a valuable lesson, no?

This Mom Fail

Yikes! I bet the mom was pretty upset about it. After all, the parents treasure this day more than the kids do, eh? Oh, if she could only do it all over. Thank goodness for digital cameras and phones.

This Mother Nature Revenge

Aww, a horse-drawn carriage sounds fantastic, no? What a great idea. However, as you can see, it didn't exactly work out the best for this prom party. I wouldn't be too happy if I got drenched.

This Bad Decision

It sounds to me like this prom date cost the guy more than he bargained for, eh? Well, I hope at least the court date was successful, hehe. Otherwise, it will be a night he will never forget.

This Sad Outcome

OMG, what? That's so sad. If I were this boy's mom, I would have gone with him. I know that might be even worse than showing up alone, but I couldn't do that to my baby. No way!

This Love Thief

Oh, that must've really sucked. And the fact this man still let them have the room he paid for speaks volumes of his character. He could have just thrown a fit, but he ended up being the stand-up guy.

This Tux Fail

Haha, I would have loved to see that. At least he took it in stride, huh? Instead, he could have just sat on his bum all night for fear of making a fool of himself. Right on!

This Nervous Breakdown

Aww, I feel so bad for this guy. This is what happens when your nerves take over. If only he were able to cool down, he might've had the best night of his life. Instead, he's got this story to tell.

This Ultimate Dance Fail

Oh, no! Say it isn't so. I guess this will teach this guy never to show off his dance moves again, huh? This makes me so paranoid, and that's why I never wear high heels because I picture myself wiping out.

This Absolute Disaster

Wow! I bet this lady didn't expect that to happen. Am I right? Of all the nights to get bitten by a dog, it had to be prom. Heck, at least she has a good story to tell from now on.

This Flammable Disaster

Oh my goodness! I can only imagine how much hair spray this lady must've had in her hair for it to catch on fire, lol. I hope somebody acted quickly and salvaged her hair.

This Stylish Pair

Oh, boy! I don't think this is what the girl had in mind, ha, ha. What she should have done instead, is tell the guy to let her know what he's planning to wear ahead of time. I would love to see their pictures, lol.

This Awful Sabotage

Oh, no! I feel so bad for this guy. Not only did he have to muster up the courage to as this girl to the prom, but then somebody cut that short. He must've been so devastated by that. Aww!

Talking about unforgettable prom night, huh?

Even though I never went to mine, part of me feels bad for missing out. However, if anything like this happened to me, I would probably wish I never went after all, ha, ha. So how about you? Did you have a dreamy prom, or did something disastrous happen? I would love to know.
