    I'm just wondering how much everyone has spent on prom so far, and how much they have paid for each part. Like, dress, suit, transport, etc, etc.

    I had mine last Friday, and I'd say I spent about £150 on clothing, and it was £44 for my share of the Limo there and back. Oh and the prom itself was £60.

    About £280 on the dress, shoes and stuff. It's not that bad though because I tend to spend quite a bit on clothes in general.

    Negged? Nothing wrong with buying good quality, especially for a formal event :dontknow:

    Like over £100 on the dress and ticket so far... I have no idea what shoes etc to get. Too stressed about exams to worry about it yet. I'll be stressing about prom after the last exam though!

    So far £12.50 , I got my dress given by someone , I'm on the disadvantaged register so I get 90% off the prom ticket and I'm getting my hair done by a family friend.

    I hope you don't mind my asking, but are you at a state school and if so is the '90% off' funded by the school?
