Prom Will Cost You $1,139 – So Who Pays For It?
I'm not sure what these kids are doing at prom but according to this figures this year, it'll cost an average of $1,139 per kid to go to prom. That includes the tickets, a dress or tux, a fancy dinner, and a limo.
That's a 5% increase over last year, which makes it two years in a row that prom expenses have risen faster than inflation.
I know that prom is a bit expensive but over a grand? Really? Seems high to me.
I get really mixed responses when I ask this question, so here goes: When it comes to prom, who pays? Do you pay or does your kid pay... or maybe you both chip in? Discuss.
