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.
