7 Romantic Prom Stories

23 Apr

It’s that time of year. Look forward to your special night or reminisce on the elegance and romance of you memories of prom.

I was a sophomore and had a crush on this junior who was friends with my best friend. I had never really talked to him before, but one day when I opened my locker I saw a pink rose tapped to the inside of my locker with a note that said “Will you go to prom with me? Love Daren.” My friend had put it in my locker. I thought it was just a joke so I didn’t bother getting a dress or anything. So two days before prom I get a call from Daren. It wasn’t a joke and he really did want me to go with him, but I didn’t even have a dress! So I called talked to my mom and she said that I could stay home from school the next day with my older sister to find everything I needed. The night of the prom I was getting ready with Erika. My makeup and hair were all done and my dress was on and I went to put on my second shoe but I couldn’t find it! a half hour of me searching everywhere for my shoe when the doorbell rings! Daren was there and no one was answering the door. So I had to go downstairs and open the door with only one shoe on. When I opened it my whole family and all of my friends where there with cameras and in front of a white limo was Daren with my other shoe. He said ” My beautiful Cinderella, you can’t go to prom without your other glass slipper” it was the corniest but most romantic night of my life and we’ve been together for a year.

I ended up going to prom with the most handsome guy in school, you know, the one you NEVER think will pick you? It ends up he really liked me! I got to wear a gorgeous red dress. And he showed up with a red rose for me! He kissed me and we got pictures by a flowering apple tree. The dance was so romantic! We were dancing in the spotlight together and there were bubbles everywhere. The DJ said we looked so good he got a picture. During Just the Way You Are he would pick me up and spin me and sing to me so I knew he was talking about me. Then he bent over like in the movies after they dance tango and kissed me! It was the funnest night ever!

Last year at prom, my boyfriend asked me to go with him. He asked if he could make all of the arrangements. I agreed to this, and could not wait to see what was in store for me. All of my girlfriends got ready at my house. This way we could all get pictures together when our dates arrived. I was upstairs when everybody started making a big commotion. I went down to see what was going on, and I saw that my boyfriend arrived. He had roses for both my mother and for me. We went outside to start the picture taking, and there was a horse and carriage waiting out there. We all got our pictures done in front of the carriage. Once we were done with pictures, we rode away in the carriage. The next thing in store was a carriage ride in the park, and a packed picnic. After the picnic, we got back in the carriage, and rode to the prom. This was the most memorable experience in my life.

at first, everything seems ordinary..we just talked then laughed.. but when the romantic song played, one of my crush-mate stand, he walks to our table then pick me up.. i didn’t expect it! we we’re the first ine to dance in the middle of the dance floor.. we’re very close to each other that we danced cheek to cheek while hugging.. it takes a couple of minutes to make others dance with us.. we are the sweetest pair! everybody said.. i saw some of my teachers talking about us.. one of our teacher said that we must kiss.. omg!! we just looked to each other then smile! i just hug him.. i am the only one he dance with.. how sweet..:)

My Freshman year a Junior took me to prom. He was the cutest guy at our school! We decided we were just going as friends. The night of Prom I was waiting for him to arrive and here came a long limo with all of our friends in it, we had a blast! When we got there we were a little early but my date and I stayed in the limo because he had something to show me. I was a little confused, but he put this blindfold on me so I couldn’t see where we were. We walked inside this beautiful garden full of flowers and rose petals! He looked at me and got on one knee and had a corsage in his hand and he asked “Will you be my girlfriend?” I was SO HAPPY! I said yes of course! He put the corsage on my wrist and he carried me back to the limo because it started to rain and we didn’t want to get my awesome dress dirty. And during the prom we had amazing time. And we are STILL together.

It was my freshman year, and my mom was transferred at work to a new city. It was only about 30 minutes away from my old house, but it was a big change. I had to move in the middle of the school year, and I didn’t know anyone. When I got there the teacher asked for someone to give me a tour of the school, and walk me to my classes. Lucky for me, the quarterback of the football team offered to be my guide. We really got to know each other, and he helped me get to know some friends. He told me that the prom was coming up soon, and he asked me to go with him. Of course I said yes, and we made all of the arrangements. The night of prom he never showed up. About 30 minutes later, I was in tears, so I called my best friend from my old school. He made me feel a little better, and about an hour later was on my doorstep in a suit, with a dozen roses. He brought me to the prom, and I don’t think I could have had a better time. We have been together since.

Well, my prom was pretty cool, I went with this guy I knew, Jared, that I’d been crushing on seriously for like the whole year. I was so petrified to make a fool out of myself, I almost asked somebody I didn’t like to go with me! All I had to do was ask him, if I had known that it would have saved me a lot of worry. I spent a lot of time trying to decide whether to ask him or not, and finally some buddies of mine convinced me to just suck it up and ask. The dance was so romantic, we danced to almost every song. He kissed me! Anyway, after the prom we all went to the grocery store at around 3 in the morning, to get supplies for a camping trip we were going on for the weekend. It was almost as fun as the prom itself, we danced in the aisles, in our formal wear. The few employees around pumped up the music for us. A piece of advice to everybody: if you want to go with somebody, just ask, it can’t hurt. Really. I wasted my whole senior year without making any kind of move, when we could have been together. Oh, and make sure you do something after the prom, camping was almost as great as the prom was.

15 Romantic Prom Ideas and Tips

19 Apr

Prom is a very romantic night for everyone. The music, lights, dancing, dresses. Make sure it’s the best night.

1. Give her a single, long-stemmed rose. (For more tips on roses: https://romanticideasinlife.wordpress.com/2011/04/01/how-roses-talk-meanings-of-roses/)

2. Sweep her off her feet and surprise her! Carry her from her house to the limo or from the limo to the prom. 

3. Show up with a box of chocolates and/or a cute stuffed animal for her.

4. While dancing, lean down really far with her in your arms and kiss her deeply. (Like in the picture of the sailor and the nurse after WWII.) 

5. Before prom set up Christmas lights in a romantic spot (forest, field, barn, gazebo, beach, ect) or candles (beach, living room, ect) and tell your date that you just can’t let her go yet and have to have one more dance with only her.

6. Impress her with some romantic Italian! (https://romanticideasinlife.wordpress.com/2011/03/07/romantic-italian-phrases/)

7. Instead of a rose, find out what your date’s favorite flower is and give her one. 

8. Strew rose petals across the floor or sidewalk. (Or cherry/pear/peach/plum blossoms.)  

9. While dancing, pick her up and spin her around in your arms.

10. Serenade her! If you know how to play an instrument, play a song for her (bonus points if you write a song just for her), sing to her, or if you can’t do any of these, play a song that means a lot to you two or makes you think of her. Then tell her why she’s so special to you.

11. While you’re in your finest, go to a beautiful, scenic spot and get pictures together. Then surprise your date by picking your favorite and giving it to them in a beautiful frame so they can always remember the special night. 

12. Request for the DJ to play your song.

13. If your girl is wearing red, request for “Lady in Red.”

14. Give her a beautiful necklace/earings/ring/bracelet for her to wear.

15. Memorize a romantic poem and read it to her. (Bonus points if you wrote it yourself and specifically for her.)

Love letter of the Day:

Tracey (Sweetheart)

Poem of the Day:

Love Sonnet 40

 


Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all; 
What hast thou then more than thou hadst before? 
No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call; 
All mine was thine before thou hadst this more. 
Then if for my love thou my love receivest, 
I cannot blame thee for my love thou usest; 
But yet be blamed, if thou thyself deceivest 
By wilful taste of what thyself refusest. 
I do forgive thy robbery, gentle thief, 
Although thou steal thee all my poverty; 
And yet, love knows, it is a greater grief 
To bear love's wrong than hate's known injury. 
Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows, 
Kill me with spites; yet we must not be foes.
William Shakespeare

Valentine’s Day Story:

I left a teddy bear with a card in its arms on every step up to the top of the stairs. When my Girlfriend got home, she slowly followed the cards upstairs reading each one. Each card had a nice message and a letter starting with I. The letters spelled I LOVE YOU. When she got to the top of the stairs, I repeated the message she just collected from the cards. I then kissed her softly on the lips and handed her a small wrapped gift. She opened it to find a beautiful white gold/diamond necklace. She was shocked and grabbed me and started kissing me. I then drove her to the restaurant of her choice. we ate a delicious dinner then I ordered a specially made desert that I had asked to be prepared when we got there. I gave her the first bite from my fork. We spent the rest of the time there looking into each others eyes smiling and talking about how we liked each other so much. I then drove us back to her place. She was so happy with me that she grabbed me and started passionately kissing me right inside the door. We then barely made it to the living room where we proceeded to have some of the best Sex I have ever experienced. After that we went to bed, cuddled and laid there talking for a bit. I then go up and ran her a hot bath with her favorite bath crystals. I gave her a massage in the bath tub for about 30 min. We then want back to bed and she fell asleep in my arms.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love letter of the Day:

To Adele Foucher

My dearest,
When two souls, which have sought each other for,
however long in the throng, have finally found each other …a union, fiery and pure as they themselves are… begins on earth and continues forever in heaven.

This union is love, true love, … a religion, which deifies the loved one, whose life comes from devotion and passion, and for which the greatest sacrifices are the sweetest delights.

This is the love which you inspire in me… Your soul is made to love with the purity and passion of angels; but perhaps it can only love another angel, in which case I must tremble with apprehension.

Yours forever,
Victor Hugo (1821)

Poem of the Day:

Wondrous Moment

The wondrous moment of our meeting . . .
I well remember you appear
Before me like a vision fleeting,
A beauty’s angel pure and clear.

In hopeless ennui surrounding
The worldly bustle, to my ear
For long your tender voice kept sounding,
For long in dreams came features dear.

Time passed. Unruly storms confounded
Old dreams, and I from year to year
Forgot how tender you had sounded,
Your heavenly features once so dear.

My backwoods days dragged slow and quiet-
Dull fence around, dark vault above-
Devoid of God and uninspired,
Devoid of tears, of fire, of love.

Sleep from my soul began retreating,
And here you once again appear
Before me like a vision fleeting,
A beauty’s angel pure and clear.

In ecstasy the heart is beating,
Old joys for it anew revive;
Inspired and God-filled, it is greeting
The fire, and tears, and love alive.

Alexander Pushkin

Valentine’s Day Story:

In 1957 I was a young Marine stationed at El Toro MCAS in Southern California. I had grown up in Burbank and would go home on weekends. I was head over heels in love with the most beautiful girl in the San Fernando Valley. However duty called and I was sent overseas. Due to difference in our religions, out mothers opposed our romance. Sadly we lost contact. I never forgot lovely Winona. 47 years later thanks to the internet Winona found me again. She showed me a picture of me she had kept all these years. On the back she had written “This is the man I should have married.” Now this Valentine’s Day we will celebrate our first anniversary. That lovely Valley Girl is my wife at last.

Paul Anton, Tacoma, Wash.

Love letter of the Day:

Journey of Love

To My Dearest Love, Jennifer

Everyday that passes

I feel that I love you more

I feel thankful for the times we spend together

I know and feel that you are my perfect companion

And friend

And I’d choose you again…

And again…

And again!

Naturally we have difficult moments

But I would not give up even these

Because it’s a part of the Journey of love

That we’ve been on

I want to travel by your side…

Forever

Because I Love You

Love you forever and always,

Jonathan

Poem of the Day:

Valentine’s a day to say, “I love you,”
A ritual that stages something real,
Letting out the truth of what I feel
Even as I think it often of you.
Nor could I with such grace without this day
Tell you that I’m grateful that I have you,
Impress upon you just how much I need you,
Needing such a frame for what I say
Even as I would my heart reveal.

Valentine’s Day Story:

I had only been dating my boyfriend for about two months by Valentine’s Day, so I wasn’t expecting much. I would have been happy just spending time with him, watching a movie in his living room, cuddling on the couch like we usually did. What I didn’t expect was the evening he had in store for me.
My boyfriend had told me the day before that he was going to make dinner for us at 6:30pm, and that we were going to watch one of my favorite movies afterward. I was upset when he called at 6pm to tell me that there was a change in plans and I wasn’t going to be able to come over. I started to complain, and ask him why he was changing the plans, but he told me not to worry, and that he would explain everything when he came over later.
I was confused by the change, and mad that he wouldn’t tell me right away what the reasoning behind it was, but I waited for him, hoping nothing had gone wrong for him at home.
I heard a knock on my door at around 7:30pm, and so I went to the door, ready for an explanation of the what had been happening that evening. When I opened the door, however, I forgot just about everything I was angry about because I was taken aback by the image in my doorway.
He had on a pair of cute jeans, a fitted dark green t-shirt (one of my favorites, as it accentuated his good physique), and a black suit jacket. I normally thought he looked good, but that day he looked more like a model than the boy I was used to. When our eyes met, he smiled broadly, and said, “Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie,” while he took a beautiful orange rose from behind his back.
He walked me to his car, but before he opened the door for me, he had me put on a blindfold. I was very confused, but did as he asked, and he helped me into the car. The car ride wasn’t too long, but the best part was the music he played. He had made a mixed cd of some of my favorite songs, and every time I’d ask where we were going, he said not to worry about it, and to just listen to the music.
After a while, the car stopped, and he helped me out, still blindfolded. He took my arm, told me we were almost there and lead me forward. We stopped, and he walked behind me, putting both hands on my shoulders. “Are you ready?” he asked. I didn’t know how to respond, so I just nodded. He took off my blindfold, and in front of me stood a beautiful carriage with two white horses tied to it. There was a friendly looking older man sitting in the driver’s seat, and a blanket in the back.
We rode around the park for about half an hour, just cuddling in the back of the carriage, his arm around my shoulder, his other hand holding mine. I spent most of the time with my head down, looking at my rose and listening to his heart, but when I looked up, he would give me the most beautiful smile.
The night had already been great, but it was topped of with him telling me he was the luckiest guy alive and giving me the best kiss of my life.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
