For Marifer Santos, prom is much more than just a dance.

“I feel like a princess. This is the night of my dreams. It's amazing!” she said.

Santos is one of the students at New York’s Inwood Academy charter school treated to their first prom — and outfitted for it by TLC’s “Say Yes to the Prom.”

With prom season almost upon us, we asked Monte Durham, the show's host, to highlight some of the best dresses out there — given that he helped students select their looks for the big night, which took place at Chelsea Piers.

If you love these gowns as much as we do, you can shop the looks below.
