With the 2017 Prom Season now over, the pictures and videos have been pouring in of our customers in their gorgeous prom dresses. From totally glam styles to classic looks, our Roo Girls all looked so gorgeous in their dresses. The latest pictures that we want to share with you were sent in by Danyelle Chere Jackson of her daughter, Mikhaela Jackson, in her prom gown. Danyelle shared a video and so many pretty pictures with us, and said:
"Thanks to the young lady that helped me find this dress for my princess Mikhaela! She and Braxton stunned at their Senior Prom. My sales rep was so awesome and she went beyond her job to find this dress for me! She called back numerous times to help me and that's why I ordered the dress from you instead of another location in Florida!!!! I am forever grateful for her! I cannot remember her name but she ROCKS!!!!... please send my thanks."
Below is a picture of Mikhaela and her mom, Danyelle, both looking so beautiful together.
Mikhaela is from Cartersville, GA and attended the Cass High Senior Prom this past April with her prom date Braxton. The couple certainly couldn't have looked any cuter together! We loved Mikhaela's golden sparkly dress paired with her date's white tuxedo - such a perfect combination. Oh, and did you catch Braxton's shiny gold shoes? The couple certainly knew how to bring the style to prom.
Mikhaela topped off her prom look with sparkly gold eye makeup and nails, gold earrings, and a bold purple lipstick. Want to see more of Mikhaela's beautiful dress and overall look? Check out the video below for the full 360 view!
If you love Mikhaela's look, make sure to check out all of our gold dresses for a sparkly look for your next event, whether prom, graduation, a summer wedding, or any other type of party. From floor-length cut-out gowns like Mikhaela's to short and sassy numbers, there are plenty of glittery gold dresses to choose from.
We're so happy that you had an incredible time at your Senior Prom, Mikhaela, and that you loved your dress! Congratulations and good luck with graduation!
The 2017 Prom Season is only just beginning, but we are excited to see that we are already receiving pictures from our customers looking beautiful in their prom dresses! The latest prom photo comes from Debra Phillips, mom of Glenisha Fortenberry. Debra posted a picture to our Facebook page, and said:
"Thanks for making my baby's prom come to life with this beautiful dress!! We loved it!!... She goes to Vicksburg High School in VIcksburg Mississippi..this was her senior prom."
How fierce does Glenisha look? She rocked her prom dress with such style, with bold fuchsia lips, a matching corsage, and elegant black nails. The prom dress that Glenisha chose is Tiffany Designs 46107, a magnificent mermaid gown that has the perfect balance of glam and classic. The beautiful black lace appliqués on this gown are delicately placed over a sheer overlay that makes for such an exquisite look, especially when paired with makeup like Gelnisha chose!
While Glenisha chose bold makeup to compliment her dress, she kept the accessories to a minimum in order to let the beautiful lace and jewels on the dress do all of the talking. She finished off her look with gold high heels for just the right amount of added glam.
Thank you, Debra and Glenisha, for sharing your prom photo with us! We hope you had a wonderful time at your senior prom, Glenisha, and hope you're excited to graduate in a couple of months!
Prom 2016 may be long over, but we still have it on our mind because we're still obsessing over all of the gorgeous prom pictures our customers have been sending our way! One of the latest in prom dress testimonials comes from Noelle Dadon and her mom, Yvette. Noelle attend her prom in early June. Yvette posted the picture on Facebook, and Noelle left us such a nice testimonial on our website. Check out Noelle's gorgeous prom picture below, as well as what both her and her mom had to say about her prom dress.
Yvette first posted Noelle's picture on our Facebook page, saying:
"My daughter Noelle in her gorgeous Blush prom gown on 6/2/16. It was absolutely perfect! The earrings were perfect, too. She got so many compliments! Thank you Rissy Roo's for making this special occasion a magical one. <3"
Nikki Librizzi showed off in two gorgeous Rissy Roo's dresses over the past few months, and we're obsessing just a little (or a lot). She attended her prom back in May, and in June she competed in the America's National Teenager Scholarship Organization (ANTSO) Pageant and walked away with a crown! Of course, she dressed in style in Sherri Hill dresses for both events. Read on to see what she wore to her prom and pageant and what title she won at the ANTSO pageant.
Nikki At Her Prom
For prom, Nikki chose Sherri Hill 50157, a gorgeous two piece gown. This spectacular creation features a dazzling jeweled illusion crop to with an open back and a fitted jersey skirt with matching beadwork along the waistline. The dress also features a front slit to show off just the right amount of leg. Continue reading →

So far our first, Alyssa Torres, and second, Kate Lannon, 2016 Prom Princesses have been announced, and on Friday, June 3rd, it was time to choose our third prom princess for our 2016 Prom Queen Contest. We're excited to announce that our third Prom Princess is Raquel Rothstein!
Raquel looked so stunning in her dress, Faviana 7573, a black jersey gown with stand-out white accents. We loved how she topped her look off with red lipstick and a red bouquet. It was a perfect classic look combining colors red, white, and black, with the design of her gown giving the colors a modern twist.
When Raquel entered our Prom Queen Contest, she shared this message:
"Going into Rissy's for the first time to look for my prom dress, I was both nervous and excited. The staff made it the best experience while shopping for my dress. They were fun and excited for me. The minute I tried on this dress, I knew it was the one. This dress was perfect for me. I can't thank the staff of Rissy Roo's enough for making prom the best night of my life!"
As a Prom Princess, Raquel won a $50 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com, and she'll also get to compete starting June 17th in the final stage of our contest - to be crowned our 2016 Prom Queen!

Just a week ago now, we announced our very first 2016 Prom Princess for our 2016 Prom Queen Contest, Alyssa Torres. Another week has gone by, and we recently announced our second 2016 Prom Princess this past Friday, May 27th. We're excited to announce that our second 2016 Prom Princess is Kate Lannon!
We loved Kate's elegant prom style. The neutral colors that Kate and her date chose let the sparkly top of her dress, her chandelier earrings, and the pretty bouquet and boutonniere take the spotlights. A stunning matching couple!
Kate's dress was created by dress designer Mori Lee. It's a dress that has since been discontinued.
Kate's mom shared Kate's prom pictures and a nice message with us back in April, but when Kate entered our Prom Queen Contest, she had a message of her own to share:
"Huge Rissy Roo's fan...It was love at first sight. I had a fairytale night in my gorgeous princess dress. The staff was fantastic and knew just what I was looking for. Can't wait to go back for Homecoming and Senior Prom! LOVE LOVE LOVE Rissy Roo's. I love being a Roogirl."
As a Prom Princess, Kate won a $50 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com, and she'll also get to compete in June for the the final stage of our contest: to be crowned our 2016 Prom Queen! Keep a look-out to see who our final Prom Princesses are (there are still three spots left!), and you'll be able to start voting on the Prom Queen on June 17th on our Facebook page. The Prom Queen will win a $100 gift certificate to Rissy Roo's.
