Response to Liberal_in_LA (Original post)

Wed May 16, 2012, 12:19 AM

72. My personal experience with my daughter last year:

Dress - $149.00
Shoes: $29.00
Hair and Make-up: $150.00
Boutonniere for her date: $15.00
Her share of limo (shared by a bunch of kids) $50.00

Her date bought the tickets, but it would have been $100.00 more if she had bought her own.

As it was, the expense added up to $393.00 plus tax, so figure about $435.00 for everything.

Not cheap, but certainly not outrageous.

She looked great and had a wonderful time, so it was worth every penny.
