Prom is More Expensive Than You Probably Think
The dress/suit, make-up, getting your hair/nails done, shoes, dinner, the ticket, the limo... Prom can get REALLY pricey REALLY fast. But, just how much does the average prom cost for one person?
The answer is $919. That's right... NINE-HUNDRED AND NINETEEN DOLLARS. THAT IS INSANE. The reason the average cost has gone up so much is because of those really popular, over-the-top prom proposals. Those add an average of $324, which is about 1/3 of the cost!
I was thinking about the cost of my prom, and I did not spend NEARLY that much. My dress was about $275 and that was the most expensive part! I wore shoes I already owned and did my own hair to save myself a little bit of money, plus a bunch of us split the cost of a party bus. We didn't have any of those crazy "prom-posals." I basically just asked my graduated boyfriend if he wanted to go with me and he said yes.
