2023 Prom Send-Off Insanity: When Stretch Limos and Fireworks Just Won’t Cut It

The class of 2023 is rewriting the book on prom send-offs, taking this beloved tradition to unprecedented heights. See some of this year’s extravagant send-offs inside….

Traditionally, prom send-offs were neighborhood gatherings where friends and families would gather to bid farewell to the seniors in their elegant attire. But now, parents are seizing the opportunity to stand out from the crowd by hosting their own extravagant send-offs.

Transforming their front and backyards into dazzling scenes, complete with full backdrops and party tents, these proud parents are setting the stage for a truly memorable evening.

While many applaud the creativity and dedication of parents in orchestrating these lavish send-offs, not everyone is on board with the trend. “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard Bassett recently voiced her disapproval on Twitter, sparking a heated debate.

“I pray this tacky overdone prom trend is over by the time mine are ready,” Candiace tweeted. “We not doing this. They look nice though.”

Some argue that the focus should be on the students themselves and their accomplishments rather than the extravagance of the send-offs. However, supporters argue that after a year of missed opportunities, it’s only natural for parents to want to go above and beyond to create a memorable experience for their graduating seniors.

y’all can’t be living in section 8 and going in debt for your kids to have over the top proms though, ijs.
