The best prom theme ideas incorporate classic elegance with whimsical fun, making for a memorable evening for everyone. Prom themes can be tricky: You've got to please a whole class of students, and not everyone will agree. Prom committee meetings can involve heated discussions about whether Under the Sea will make for prettier decorating than Enchanted Garden. This list includes some of the most popular prom theme ideas. See yours on the list? Vote it up -- unless you hate it. Then, of course, vote it down. Way down. Down under the enchanted sea, where your heart goes on and on. You get the idea. If you have a great prom theme idea that isn't listed, definitely add it. Prom committees everywhere will thank you.

A great prom theme is all about the atmosphere. The right theme for prom makes decorating a breeze. Some prom themes will involve more elaborate decorations, and they'll certainly be more costly. Transforming a school gym into a full-out casino, complete with games and tables and slot machines can cost a pretty penny. If your prom budget is big, then go big, by all means! But if you're on a budget, sticking to something fairly simple is always best. A Black and White prom theme, for example, is classic and elegant, but decorating won't break the bank.

Each year, newer, contemporary prom themes emerge. Usually, these are prom themes based on movies, television shows and/or certainly songs. Empire State of Mind, for example, is a great way to combine an incredibly popular song with a New York City theme for prom. Dancing With the Stars is also popular -- and really, you just need a nice ballroom and (of course) a ginormous mirror ball hanging from the ceiling. Movie-wise, a prom theme like My Heart Will Go On give a nod to Titanic -- a film that manages equal parts romance and utter disaster...much like, well, prom! Other movie prom themes include Alice in Wonderland, The Time of Our Lives (think 'Dirty Dancing') and An Affair to Remember.

Hopefully this list of prom theme ideas will inspire you. Prom really is one of the highlights of high school, and the big dance's theme is one you'll remember for a lifetime. Another huge prom deal? The dresses! If you're looking for great ideas, check out these lists for the best prom dress designers, mermaid prom dresses vintage prom dresses and 2012 prom couture looks.
