Prom has passed, but it still has a lasting impact on our wallets. Has the thought ever occurred to you why prom is so expensive. Well, here are a few factors to consider as to why our favorite dance burns a hole in our wallets.

  1. Your attire. Prom dresses can range from $100 – $400, maybe even more. Along with your shoes which can also cost a lot of money, depending on where you get them. To lessen the cost of this try going to a thrift store, renting a dress or suit, or making your own!
  2. Prom tickets. The price of prom tickets range depending on where it is held. It would be the cheapest option to do it at school, but it is even better when it is held somewhere else. When you have your prom at somewhere else, it costs to reserve the place which makes it expensive.
  3. Pre-prom dinner. Usually when people go out to eat before prom, they go to fancy places or the more expensive places. Depending on what you order, the cost of your meal could be pricey. To save money, try getting a cheaper option on the menu or go to a place that isn’t expensive. Also, try ordering water.

 

You don’t have to not spend any money or over spend money at prom. An effective way to make sure you spend the right amount of money is to plan the night, and what purchases you plan on making! Make sure to have extra money, as well, just in case something pops up where you need it.
