Prom means slow dancing with sweaty hands, punch that tastes like pure sugar, a DJ who plays songs from 5 years ago, and the love of your life? These lucky people unexpectedly went to prom with the person they ended up marrying. Now that’s a prom ticket that’s actually worth the price.
These are more than coincidence – these are couples destined to stay together. If they can take on the craziness that is senior prom, then they can take on anything. Check out these prom and wedding photos that will have your heart melting.
These Two Married 65 Years After They Were Prom Dates
You never know who your soulmate is going to be and when you’re going to find them. But it’s better late than never to realize that your true love may be the person who’s been there all along.
That’s what happened with Reddit user @North_Shore_Problem’s friend. She writes that “both 81 and widowed, my friend’s grandmother reconnected with her prom date and married him 65 years later.” These two really are the definition of timeless love.
These Two Mastered The Dance Moves After 5 Years Between Prom And Marriage
We all know how stressful an experience the prom slow-dance is – there are a million questions you have to ask yourself. Where do you put your hands? Which foot belongs to me? How can I do a spin without falling over? Luckily, these two have mastered the moves since they had their prom.
These two in March 2012 and in July 2017 are as adorable as they ever were. What doesn’t stay consistent is dance confidence. Look at him dipping her with ease on their wedding day compared to simply standing at prom. Now that’s a glow-up.
Couple Goals And Hair Goals…Wow
These two show us two things. The first thing is that they’re so cute together and the second thing is that a deep condition is a powerful tool we all should be using. Their hair is as fabulous and moisturized as much as their relationship. Wait, what does a moisturized relationship mean?
Did these two become models after high school? Because they’re seriously gorgeous and working the Tyra Banks “smize” in the wedding photo. Their model past is a mystery but one thing’s for sure – if they ever have a kid it’s going to have fantastic hair.
This groom learned how to pose his hands after being together since high school…
These Two Bonded Over A Mutual Love For Backyard Photoshoots
There’s nothing greater than finding someone who really understands you and appreciates where you’re coming from. When that means that they get your love for peat moss and woodchips under your formal shoes then you should stay together forever just like this bride and groom.
The backyard is a classic prom photo backdrop but it works equally as well on the wedding day. This photo combination is iconic because it shows their love has stayed strong through the years. The backyard looks like it stayed lush and healthy too.
Groom Finally Figured Out How To Pose For A Picture
We’re not always photo-ready and prepared with an arsenal of poses to strike when the camera turns on. Sometimes, we’re 17 at our senior prom with the girl we really like and we forget how to control our limbs. This groom can attest that it happens to the best of us.
Luckily, he traded his awkwardly hovering hand in the prom photo for a hand placement on the bouquet that looks great. Here’s to learning our angles and not letting nervousness mess up our wedding photos. What a cute couple.
These Two Started Stylish And Stayed Stylish
Wine, cheese, ripped jeans, and these photos are cases where awesome things somehow truly do get more fabulous with age. This iconic couple nailed the 2008 prom glamor and used their practice and skills to nail their 2018 wedding.
Just look at that white tux with the popped collar and her cool halter neckline – these were kids ahead of the style curve ready to show us their trendsetting abilities. 2018 is no different. The white tux and jewel forehead crown look amazing.
This bride finally got used to the way this groom shows his affection…
Bride And Groom Still Crack Each Other Up
Find someone who makes you laugh and laughs at your jokes. If they don’t giggle when you make that dog pun that you’ve been saving for them all day then they’re not worth it. Check out these two who laughed together all the way to the altar.
They can barely contain their laughter as they pose for the obligatory wedding photo. Hopefully, they held it together until just after they cut the cake – sharp objects don’t mix well with uncontrollable giggling.
These Two Traded The Lei For A Bouquet
All of our proms have had wild themes. Popular repeat offenders are Hollywood, Casino, One Night In Paris, and Under The Sea. The tickets always tell you to dress like you’re part of the fantasy but does anyone actually follow the theme aside from the prom committee? Maybe just this groom.
Luckily, they traded the lei for a bouquet by the time the wedding came around. “Island Luau In The Sun” might not be the best theme choice for a wedding, so it’s good that he didn’t hang onto that lei.
She’s Finally Gotten Used To His Wild Smooches
Being together with someone means accepting them as they are. That includes supporting their monster truck rally obsession, desire to wear socks with holes in them, and love of giving uncontrollably sloppy smooches. This bride definitely knows that.
After years of having her makeup basically squished off her face by her husband, this bride has finally gotten used to the way he shows his affection. It looks like he’s learned to reign himself in too. These two are so cute and embody the living and learning we all should be doing.
This couple will nail any themed party you invite them to…
These Prom Dates Turned Spouses Kept The Same Color Scheme
There’s nothing better than marrying the person who loves, supports, and understands your color theory preferences. It’s hard marrying someone into cool tones when you’re invested in the vibrancy of warm neutrals. Luckily, that’s not the case with these two who share the same palette preferences after almost a decade.
Find a spouse who will match their tie to your dress for all occasions – seriously, that’s couple goals. Luckily, the groom traded the white tux out because that thing definitely clashed.
Military Couple Will Make Your Heart Melt
Growing up is all about finding out what and who matters to you and following that passion. That means throwing yourself into careers and relationships that spark a zest for life inside of you. That’s a fact this military couple knows all too well.
It’s so sweet how this groom dedicated his life to service and to his prom date. These two are so heart-meltingly cute that they should post more prom-to-wedding photos. Seriously, the internet needs more of these two lovebirds.
From The Ranch To The Beach
We’ve all met the couple who nails every costume contest or theme get-together that’s thrown their way. They’ll break out the papier mache, glitter glue, and niche novelty items just to win. This is that awesome couple at the prom and wedding.
These two are the ultimate theme-nailers. They heard the prom organizers were using a “Wild West Theme” so they quickly came up with a cowboy hat and all-jean-esque dress that completely nails it. They kept the balling rolling with their adorable destination beach wedding attire too. Yee haw.
These adorable brides liked each other so much they took a photo on the first date…
This Classic Couple Has A Love To Last The Ages
We all knew a couple back in high school that dressed to the nines and made us all aspire to be on their level of coordination. While the rest of us were struggling to not put our clothes on inside out, these two were rolling up with matching socks.
They were stylish back at prom and are equally as stylish now. Sporting the red roses, pearls, thin mustache, and pin curls on their wedding day, these two show us that classic glamor really is timeless. Plus, a good black and white filter helps add to the vintage vibe they’ve got going.
Another White Tux And Another Adorable Couple
White prom tuxedos seem to have been a big thing back when all of these high school sweethearts were graduating. For a garment that’s hard to find and even harder to keep clean, there was definitely a high demand. Hopefully, all these guys brought Tide-To-Go sticks in their pockets.
This adorable couple switched color palettes for their wedding. Maybe they repurposed his white prom tux for her wedding dress, although that’s probably not the case. Not many white prom tuxes were spared from permanent red fruit punch stains.
Gorgeous Women Back Then And Gorgeous Brides Now
From their first date in 2011 to their wedding day in 2017, these two ladies have been showing us what true love looks like. They’re both having so much fun in the photos you’d think they were taken before and after the ceremony.
It’s a great sign that things were going well if they took a cute photo together on their first date. Think about all the bad coffee dates you might have been on where your date ranted about their obscure taste in music and a concert they went to last year. Those weren’t exactly photo-worthy moments.
Grad And Grad Turned Man And Wife
These two got to share two milestone events together – a graduation and a wedding. There’s nothing better than having your plus one figured out already when you get the invite to an event. Oh, we’re getting married? Perfect, let’s carpool.
These photos capture perfectly how tender and sweet these two are with each other. The slow dance whisper is such a cute private moment that the photographer got to capture. She’s probably telling him he’s stepping on her foot though.
Here’s Another Hair Goals Couple
You want to be with somebody who loves and values the things you do. That means haircare. Be with someone who wants to spend 20 minutes doing hair masks with you because that’s true love that will last. Take this couple for example.
These sweet people show that a love of hair can bring people together and keep them together. Seriously, these two had incredible locks back then and still do now. In the event of a career change they should get into dual Head And Shoulders advertisements.
This Pair Who Know How To Pose
Imagine being this good at striking a pose at prom and then looking amazing in a candid photo at your wedding. That’s definitely never happened to me. But this model-esque couple is giving me and all the other bad posers out there hope.
Look at how cool and dangerous they look gazing off into the middle distance at prom and then look how pure and sweet they look at their wedding. These people are truly masters of the edgy and the classic and are powerful forces to behold. They must be looking at some cool stuff over there.
These Two Took A Limo To Prom And A One-Way Ticket Straight Into Our Hearts
There’s nothing better than rolling up stylishly to prom in a limo with your high school sweetheart. Who would have known that that special person would be the person you’re spending the rest of your life with? Maybe pay the extra for the limo with the light-up rims then.
These two look so cute in their matching white prom ensembles. The benefit of wearing a white dress to prom is that you can see what kind of style you’re into for your wedding day. Just keep the veil at home – you might trip over it doing the macarena.
These Prom Dates Were The Emeralds In Each Other’s Eyes
There’s no better feeling than knowing you’ve chosen the right person and it’s amazing that some couples can tell right away. There’s no denying the emotions shared between this pair captured in this tender moment before they leave for prom.
