You are making me cry! I just rented a tux for my son which, with the $25 off coupon was still $107. Someone told me you can buy a tux from this same place for $100. Since this is his second prom but not his last I am seriously considering doing that.Prom tickets - $35 each!Dinner - don't know yet but they are not going to Red Lobster so it will certainly be more than $26.Limo - $90/kid (I won't pay for that because it is ridiculous but really and truly - ALL the kids out here do it)Flowers- how can I find out how to make a corsage ASAP?Pics - we did get the photographer to come up with a lower end package - I think it is less than $30 so that helps.So this prom will be several hundred dollars and he damned well better have a great time! I have co-chaired this thing and it has been really stressful so I'm staying there all night and watching. He doesn't know yet. He had best not care.Here's a question for you prom moms: Did your kiddos pay their own way to the prom or did you foot the bill, or did you each pay part? I am often stunned when I hear folks I work with or other acquaintances talk about how they paid a zillion and a half dollars for their kid to go to prom. Man, when I went to my prom I paid for EVERYTHING myself. Dress, shoes, dinner (I went with girlfriends, not a date), pictures, the whole nine yards. I spent a pretty penny, partly because my dress was kind of expensive and partly because the Prom tix were $50 (and that's in 1992). But, it was my money to spend and while my parents thought I could have done it cheaper they didn't really have anything to complain about b/c they didn't buy.dwonders sometimes if teens pay for ANYTHING themselves anymore.
