Comments on the "What Month" Poll
For the poll question "What month is your prom?", the possible answers were:
Here are e-mails that people sent us in 2005:
- Mother's Day weekend
Our schedules for Prom this year are really chaotic because
it's the day before Mother's Day. We are having a flower shop
come in to decorate and it was so hard for us to work around
- Need to keep dry
Any time, as long as you don't hold it in a rainy month, or a month that's
so hot and humid like June that you can hardly stand to wear
- Early April
We are from Florida and our prom is April 9th. Some may consider
this early but it's very convenient for us besides that it
is ACT day. Late April is our Grad Night, and then May is
full of graduation activities like award ceremonies, baccalaureate,
banquets, practices, and not to mention final exams. Early
April is definitely the best time for us.
- Just the right temperature
The best time is when it is warm enough to be outside without
a jacket but not so warm that you are sweating. It has to
be a nice night with no humidity to make your hair go everywhere.
- First weekend in June
I'm president of my class and prom committee and everyone agrees
that the first weekend in June usually works out well. We are
usually one of the last proms and we can usually find a place
easier and the girls like it because they can get their dresses
on clearance in late May!! Although it is the day of the
SAT's I've done both before and it really isn't all that terrible
- Nice weather
The best time to hold a prom is in the middle of April, when
the weather should be pretty nice.
- Greatest celebration
Early to mid-May is the best, I feel, to have prom. Upperclassmen,
especially seniors, are anticipating the end of the school
year, and prom is the greatest celebration to dress up and
enjoy the moment.
- Look forward to
Proms should be in May because nothing else happens then. It gives you
something to look forward to that month.
I think the best time to hold prom is in May. It is so beautiful
and the weather is perfect. Although rain can be a factor,
it can come any month.
- Good weather
The best time to hold the prom is in May or June, because of
- Year end
Late April or early May definitely, it kinda says that the end
of the year is coming.
Here are e-mails that people sent us in 2004:
- April or May
It should be in late April or early May. Ours this year is April 24th.
Last year's was May 3rd....they are perfect dates!
- Book early!
I am our junior class president, and we are having our prom May 8th
because six months ago when i called to reserve a location, they were
booked for ALL other dates. I will make sure to pass on to next year's
juniors, book your date VERY early! 1:)
- Same day as biggest school sports event
My prom is April 24th and i just got my prom date a 1 1/2 weeks b4
prom for my second year. so itz all a rush for prom plus the
drake relays are that weekend
so some ppl have to choose n itz not fun!
- Softball playoffs
Our Prom is on May 22nd, I think that it is too late. I like
the Prom around the first or second Saturday in May because
it always seems better, and that way, we aren't in Softball
playoffs here in Vermont.
- April in Arizona
Our prom is on April 24th. I think the timing couldn't be better. It's
late enough in the year (since we live in Arizona) that we can all
stay in a hotel and be able to go swimming the next day, but early
enough that we won't all be drenched in sweat. I think mid April is the
best time for the south west to have prom.
Our prom is on the 17th of April this year!! It's outrageous because
we have always had our prom on the 3rd Saturday in May before and the
entire campus is unprepared. Proms are better in May.
- May in West Virginia
Our prom is on May 15 this year, I think it's so weird to look and see
people having their prom in March and April...I live in Wild,
Wonderful West Virginia and most every school in my area (the deep
south) holds their prom in May since it's usually pretty weather for a
prom (even though it rained last year).
- Weather and Pictures
Our prom is May 1st. It's always been the first Saturday in May and I
think it's nice because the weather in Indiana is so crazy and it's
usually nice. Plus the flowers are out and fountains are lit and they
help to make great pictures.
I think that June is the best time for prom, you can always count on
the weather being warm during the month.
- Surprise announcement
Later, Later, Later! My prom is on April 3rd this year and I am so
mad! The date wasn't even announced until a couple of weeks ago so I
had to rush to find a dress and get the night off work. Not to mention
that it is on the day we change our clocks!
- Later is better
March 26! Later in the spring would be totally better. We
want to take pictures outside before prom, and it gets dark early in March and
that's not ok.
- Late prom
My school always makes it a week before graduation. It's the latest prom
of anyone I know.
- Days to avoid
Mine's April 23rd. I wouldn't mind if they picked earlier or later. They probably
shouldn't pick Good Friday, though. Or Passover.
- School vacation
Ours is the Friday right before school vacation week. I hate it. We've always
flown out Friday afternoon, but can't this year. Prom date was announced
months ago, so it's not like we had to cancel reservations or anything.
- April or May
Anytime in April or May, but not April 30 or May 1! (May 1 is the SAT...)
- Location, location, location
I'm from New York but we moved to Florida this year. Prom is
March 26. This would make no sense in New York! Prom should
be springtime, and March in New York can be all cold and snow.
Your thoughts? (We'll just add your message here. We won't give out your name
- Avoid sports conflicts
We picked May 21 (I'm on the prom committee). Main reason is all
sports teams are done with their seasons by then.
