Making prom dreams come true!
For years, our goal at Grand Prom has been to help girls make their prom dreams a reality. This year, we have taken that goal and maximized it. Already, Grand Prom has awarded three deserving girls free prom dresses of their choice and we're not done giving yet! Grand Prom introduces our prom winners:
Meet Erin ~ Grand Prom’s 2011 Prom Girl of the Year.
Words to describe Erin: Beautiful, ambitious, encouraging, and strong.
The outpour of love and support for Erin is truly remarkable and was made evident in our Prom Girl of the Year contest. Erin was nominated to be our Prom Girl of the Year by her mother who submitted a touching essay on why Erin deserves the title. Her mother rallied together a total of 2,571 votes for Erin to win the title!
Erin had no idea that she was nominated for (and won!) the Prom Girl of the Year contest. The Wedding Shoppe, Inc. Marketing Team & Gunnar Cook Photography set out to Andover High School last week to make the surprise announcement. Seeing Erin’s shocked expressions and big smile made it such a special moment. As our Prom Girl of the Year, Erin won a free prom dress valued up to $500, a personal prom party at Grand Prom, a photo shoot with Gunnar Cook Photography, a framed Prom Girl of the Year award, and a tiara!
Erin and her friends came into our prom dresses boutique this weekend for their very own personal prom party. The girls rocked so many of the designer prom dresses. Erin’s final decision was to go with Flirt Prom Dress P2522
in purple. She looked amazing in it & we are so excited to bring you professional photos from her shoot with Gunnar Cook Photography this spring! Stay tuned.
Meet Rayna ~ Grand Prom’s 2011 Runner-Up.
Words to describe Rayna: Darling, admirable, generous, and sincere.
We were overwhelmed with the abundance of support that Rayna received in the Prom Girl of the Year contest too. Rayna’s mother wrote a touching essay on the hardships they have faced and why her daughter deserves to be our Prom Girl of the Year. Rayna received 2,300 votes which made her Runner-Up in our contest. Rayna knew of the contest and was aware that she didn’t win the title. What she didn’t know is that she would be getting a surprise visit at school last week from the Wedding Shoppe Inc. Marketing ladies and Gunnar Cook Photography. We interrupted Rayna’s yearbook class and made the surprise announcement that as our Prom Girl of the Year Runner-Up, Rayna will receive: a free prom dress of her choice valued up to $300, a personal prom party at Grand Prom for her and her friends, a photo shoot with Gunnar Cook Photography, a Prom Girl of the Year Runner-Up award, and a tiara.
Rayna’s sweet smile and the sparkle in her eyes made it all worth it. Rayna expressed such sincere appreciation. We couldn’t have a better runner-up. Rayna came into our prom dresses boutique this past weekend and tried on so many fun designer prom dresses. Although all of them looked stunning on her, Rayna chose Studio 17 Prom Dress 12229
to be the one she will rock on her prom night.
Meet Amanda ~ Rock the Red Carpet Contest Winner.
Showcasing her celebrity inspired prom look in our Rock the Red Carpet contest, Amanda gained 315 votes which secured her win in the contest. Amanda’s prom look included the gorgeous Jovani 17438 Prom Dress
, Paradox London Wedding Shoes Kristen
, and Carolee Crystal Fan Shape Drop Pierced Earrings
. In her submission Amanda said, “The dress is so unique, I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. This is my dream prom dress and I’m sure there are many other girls that would just love it too.” Grand Prom has awarded Amanda with a free prom dress of her choice valued up to $400!
