Prom dress and wedding dress are types of dresses that girls or women wearing on special occasion parties. I’ve seen very bridal-looking prom dresses, and I’ve seen very prom-looking wedding dresses too. In other word, can you wear a prom dress as your wedding dress, what the differences and how to distinguish them?

Prom is a major event in students’ school life, getting perfect dreamy prom dress is a must. These dresses usually come as a gown or a cocktail dress style. Short prom dresses are more acceptable these years than before. Prom dress tend to be more colorful, navy blue, black, red, pink, white are popular color choice of prom dress.

On the other hand, a wedding dress is the gown which the bride would wear during her wedding ceremony. Color of wedding dresses in general are a variant shade of white (white/ Ivory / Cream).

But wedding gowns’ color and style may vary from culture to culture, however white is the most commonly used wedding gown color. And white prom gowns are choice of many girls too. With some wearing tips, you can wear white prom dress without bridal-looking.

BTW, cheap beautiful prom dress is a GREAT way to save money on wedding dress if you are planning a budget wedding, or if you don’t want a traditional wedding dress.

It is difficult to tell their difference I think, they are both important things. The only difference I think is whether the label says prom dress or wedding dress on it.   If you tell them you want a non-white dress though, they’ll probably agree that you’re much more likely to find something in the prom section when shopping local store.

So, wear what you feel good in! It’s your wedding dress, no one else’s’, and your prom party, just make sure your prom dress is allowed by your school prom rule.
