Ok as someone with 8 and 5 year old girls this thread is giving me major anxiety... Definitely shot up since my prom in 2000. Mind you even the year 6 leavers do seems to be a big deal these days, guess I should start saving now! Mine will have communions too which some spend s on for a dress, party etc.

People spend what they want. There was no peer pressure in my Dd's year to be setting any sort of budget.

Many of the boys spent more than girls with expensive trainers and suits. People just didn't realise it.

Spend what you are comfortable with. People here have shown any budget can be made to work.

Thats true , my sons suit , shirt and tie wasnt far off what my DDs prom dress cost , it would have been more had Moss Bros not had a sale on .

His shoes also cost far more .

My first was from Debenhams sale and cost 25 and my second was from ebay and cost 6.50. I can't see the value in a dress that's worn for one evening and a girl I went with spent over 500 and it got ruined by her fake tan running in the rain and staining the dress.

Also, just my opinion, but working with kids in care etc makes me see this as totally alienating to them? 500 is a huge amount of money for a dress. If you do have one that wasn't crazy money or you aren't attached to, consider donating it to your local school or there are some organisations that help disadvantaged children receive prom dresses at reasonable prices!

I think the cost is ridiculous. My daughters dress sits pointlessly hanging on the back of the spare bedroom door now. Worn once! We did it of course but I dont agree with it really. Her dress was 270. It was a short but not tight one. Dry unusual. Her bag and shoes were another 100 but at least they can be used again. Her hair was about 30 I think and her makeup I cant remember. Shes not a fake tan girl so we were spared that 🙄
