According to some article I've read before, it can be easily a $1000 night for prom. It's not just the clothes, and the primping, and the ride. The tickets alone can be more than $100 a couple. Then there's dinner and flowers and photos -- plus the after-party to think about. It's a lot of money for a single night.
Wow thats alot of money...my prom was no where near that amount. The dress was 75 dollars, tickets were 100 dollars (50 a piece), food was 60 dollars and the car was 80 dollars. You expect to spend a small fortune but a 1000 dollars is a very extreme (in my opinion)
