'Say Yes To The Prom' Dresses Are Here So You Can Get The Red Carpet Treatment

By

Before your wedding, your prom dress is probably the most important gown you'll pick out. (Or, at least, that's how many people feel.) It can involve weeks of searching for the right one and sometimes, a hefty amount of cash — until now. Say Yes To The Prom dresses and accessories at Macy's are your one-stop shop for all things prom.

Say Yes To The Dress is a TLC show about brides picking out their wedding gowns for their big day, but for many women, prom is just as big of a deal. Dresses can easily reach the thousands (the most expensive prom dress to date cost $14,000), but not everyone can or should feel pressured to dole out such a big chunk of change. The brilliant minds over at TLC agree with me on that and Discovery Consumer Products teamed up with Macy's to release a new collection of dresses for 2018, called Say Yes To The Prom.

The dresses are sold online and at over 500 Macy's stores across the country. Every dress is under $200, and most go up to a size 16, so your prom look will be on fleek without blowing your budget. The collection also includes jewelry, so you can add even more sparkle to your big night. Now all you have to worry about is which promposal to say yes to.

If the big ballgowns aren't your vibe, this lacy column dress is sheer genius.

Rhinestone prom choker FTW. Honestly, I'd wear this to brunch with a sweatshirt the next day, too.

Embellished Strappy-Back Satin Gown

Embellished Strappy-Back Satin Gown, $149, Macys

This dress has minimal embellishment but the metallic fabric speaks, er, shines for itself. And it has pockets!

Two piece gowns are definitely a prom trend for 2018. Post prom, I bet you could repurpose the top with some black jeans for your next girl's night out.

Sequined Grid Popover Gown

Macy's

Sequined Grid Popover Gown, $149, Macys

My favorite dress in the collection is this faux two-piece gown. It's black (my favorite color), it's got sequins (my other favorite color), and it'll give you the look of a two piece without actually baring any skin.

The idea behind this dress line is actually even bigger than just selling looks. The collection is a part of Discovery's (TLC's parent company) bigger Say Yes To The Prom initiative. It began as a simple dress drive and is now a nationwide string of events providing prom dress (and tuxedo) shopping as well as educational opportunities for deserving students. This year, Discovery partnered with Seventeen and awarded not only prom gear but a prom itself to a school in need. The winner was Washington Heights’ Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School located in New York City. Tune in and follow along with the school's dazzling prom experience during the Say Yes To The Prom special (feature Monte Durham from Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta) airing Saturday, Mar. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
