How much have you spent on prom?

    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.

    My prom ticket's £28. I haven't got any of the other stuff ready yet though.

    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:

    all in all, around 200 euros. 250 including the taxi, so think 200 pounds?

    edit: why the **** is this in gcse's, anyway?

    our schools not doing it

    prom ticket - £16
    transport minibus - £3
    dress - £45
    shoes £10
    tiara £7
    bag - £10
    underskirt - £10
    makeup & fake eyelashes - £8
    earrings - £2
    hair appointment - £18
    extensions - £25

    total: £154, i just need to get a few more bits and pieces

    Dress- £35
    Shoes and clutch- not bought them yet
    Makeup- £25 but I'm getting it done at MAC so they give you £25 worth of makeup after
    Ticket- £14
    Transport- The prom venue is really near to where we're having pre-drinks so I'm getting a taxi with a few friends

    As you can tell, I'm not going very OTT :')

    Dress - £180
    Shoes - £25 (reduced from £70!)
    Bag - £55 >.>
    Jewelry - £20 for bracelet, already had the rest
    Ticket - £30
    Transport £15

    Make up and hair i'm doing myself

    Mine was about £200 shoes/dress/bag, £25 on ticket and £30 for my share of the limo. So around £250.

    So far....£60 on dress(it was on sale)
    and £10 for prom ticket

    I dont need anything else, cause I have all the accessories and someone is doing my hair and makeup for me-for free

    Wow my ticket price seems to be huge compared to everyone else's.

    But it was an awesome night at Epsom Downs Racecourse

    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!

    dress- £60
    shoes - £30
    bag - £20
    transport - not sure yet probably just taxi
    make-up and hair might do myself
    jewellery - £20
    ticket - £20
    alot of money just for 4 and a half hours.

    links for people's prom dresses? having a hard time trying to find mine

    £5.20 - Watching a film by myself.

    Oh me, *blushes*.

    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.

    Just need to get my shoes and make up done now

    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?

    None - the school won't let us have one -.-

    Dress - £120 + £20 express delivery (custom made from eBay but it's so nice)
    Shoes - £30
    Necklace, bracelet & earrings - £10/15 (can't remember exactly)
    Bag - £10
    Ticket - £30
    Hair extensions - £120 + £20 for re-adjustment
    Blowdry - £15
    Spray tan, HD eyebrows, eyelash infills and acrylic nails - £50ish

    Total - £430, I've paid £125 myself and the rest was my Mum
