This situation in my town has led to a great scheme where people have donated their old prom dresses or any fancy gown to a local initiative that lends the dresses to those who are unable or don't want to pay out high sums for a dress that will in all probability be worn once.The only stipulation is the hirer has it cleaned before returning the dress .

My oldest daughter wanted to be like her friends and get fitted for a dress at over 500. She then changed her mind because they were all too blingy for her. In the end she got a secondhand one for under 100. My youngest daughter decided straight away on secondhand and got a dress that fits her perfectly for 80. Just needs dry cleaned and the accessories. Happy shopping.

He was loaned a suit by a friend and invited to go in fancy transport with others, it was lovely to see quite emotional cos you knew his friends had done it off their own backs and they were so glad he was part of it all.
At end of day though expensive or cheap it can be done both ways and they still all look great and have a fantastic night. We didn't go elaborate prices for our daughter she still looked stunning but I'm biased lol, some of her friends spent an absolute fortune and they looked stunning too... They all had the same great night x
My older daughter had a friend who's parents wouldn't (wouldn't not couldn't) buy her a dress. As my daughter had started an apprenticeship before prom and been paid her first wage she bought her friend a dress. It was a lipsy one that had been reduced to 15. When she was stood next to my daughter who's dress had cost over 400 with alterations you would not have known the dress she had paid 15 for was so much cheaper than the one my daughter was wearing.

I have my own bridal and prom dress business and i would say the average spend is around 150-200, for designer ranges. We sell dresses from 40 right up to 225 but the more expensive ones, which tend to be very beaded are the best sellers. Hope that helps x

I think it depends upon what you/your daughter wants. I paid around 500 for my daughter's last year and that was cheap compared to others but there were some lovely cheaper ones. It also depends on where you buy them from. We got ours from a bridal shop but we did see some lovely dresses in Quiz, TK Maxx
