Ever dreamed of finally having your perfect prom? You're wearing your dream dress and even taking your very own Prince Charming as your date? Sounds like an absolute fairytale, right? I bet you're thinking, "what could possibly go wrong?" Well, you definitely have to trust us when we say that even when you feel like your fairytale prom is becoming a reality, things can always happen when you least expect it.  So, to help you prepare for every possible situation, we list down the 10 worst things you wouldn't want to happen on prom night.

1. TRIPPING ON YOUR DRESS

Yep, it's one of the most embarrassing things that can happen to you, especially when it happens right when you enter. Plus, there's also the chance of seriously getting hurt.

There's even a slight chance you ripped your dress and you're just hoping it isn't too obvious.

To make sure this doesn't happen, you need to practice walking in your dress (and in heels!). Because, aside from looking really good in it, it still has to be comfortable.

And don't you worry, falling and ripping your dress is not the end of the world. If your fairytale prom didn't start so great, you can still proudly get back up on your feet and fix up a bit.

2. SPILLING SOMETHING ON YOUR DRESS

It's very important to not forget to place the table napkin over your dress.

You wouldn't want to have the burden of removing an accidental food stain in the bathroom, or even worse, end up leaving your date all alone for too long.

3. GETTING BLISTERS ON YOUR FEET

Are the blisters on your feet preventing you from a super fun dance-off with your besties? Make sure to have some Band-Aids handy.

4. GETTING FOOD STUCK IN YOUR MOUTH

So don't forget to make frequent trips to the restroom with your gal pals. This is your chance to look at yourself in the mirror and re-apply any smudged makeup if you have to.

5. WARDROBE MALFUNCTION

Make sure your dress fits you well so you won't have to deal with any outfit-peek-a-boo moment.

6. CAN'T DANCE

Not being able to dance is a big no-no. Trust us, you wouldn't want to leave your prom night without dancing. So, before your special night, practice a little bit. You don’t need to know how the moves, all you have to do is have fun and get your groove on.

7. GET CAUGHT WITH BAD BREATH

8. BREAKING A HEEL

Sometimes, us girls go for the challenge of wearing sky-high heels and just deal with the pain. But trust us when we say that breaking a heel and injuring your ankle is the probably the worst thing ever.

This is another reason why you should make time on walking in heels. Walk around the house or even on a treadmill if you have to.
