There's no shame in going to prom alone. In fact, in some cases it might even be preferable. There's no awkward promposal, no pressure to have a romantic evening and no need to spend your time with someone you really don't care about. Instead, you get to take charge of your own prom plans and dance the night away in the company of your BFFs.

However, going to prom alone still requires a dazzling social media post to document your evening. Keep scrolling for Instagram captions that are perfect for anyone going to prom stag.
