10+ Unforgettable Prom Fails That Made It A Night To Remember

Prom time is always such a special time. I wouldn't know because I never went to mine. Boo hoo!!! But I can only imagine how much anticipation and preparation can go into this one event.

Sometimes though things don't exactly go as planned. And when that happens it can be either tragic or just plain hilarious.
