Saving money on the prom is tough to do. Here are a few ideas that I gathered from those who have done it:
1.) Limit the hours of the limo rental, (just booking it to ride to the prom and arrange to be picked up at the end.)
2.) Instead of going out to a pricey dinner, ask one person to host a potluck dinner.
3.) Have all your friend use one florist and ask for a discount, or skip the flowers altogether.
4.) Guys – buy a used tux if you can get several uses out of it, or wear a nice suit and dress it up with a vest.
5.) Girls – buy your dress at a consignment store or borrow one from a friend. Borrow the shoes, wrap and purse.
6.) Have your make-up done at the mall, book an appointment at the Bobbi Brown counter. There is no cost. You can purchase a few products as a splurge, but that is optional.
7.) You and a girlfriend can style each other’s hair.
Any other ideas? Please share and I will update this post.
