It’s prom season, and parents are feeling the pinch of financing the night of their high school student’s dreams.
In a recent study published by VISA, adding up the dress, shoes, makeup, nails, tux, flowers, dinner, limo and dance tickets totals an amazing $1,139,00 in 2013-far more than any teens that I know can afford.
So the question is, is it worth it?
Read more about prom costs in my article, “How to Avoid Overspending on Prom and Have Fun Doing It” and see what you think…is one night worth the cost?
Do you remember how much you spent on your prom? Has your child gone to prom recently? How did you handle the high cost of prom night?
Yahoo liked my article so much they added it into their feature, “Soaring and ‘genuinely silly’ prom costs prompt families to budget for big dance” on The Lookout Yahoo! News blog!
