SURVEY SAYS: How expensive was your prom?

More than a decade ago, when my youngest son went to the prom at his high school, I realized how much more expensive it was to attend the prom than when I did so (I won’t say how long ago that was).

I recently read an article that said a teenage girl’s parents paid $1,000 to have her prom dress custom made, so prom inflation is definitely a thing.


This week, I’d like to know, did you attend a prom and how much did it cost you (or your parents)? Also, for fun, do you remember the theme of your prom?
