Parents of girls, how much have you paid for a prom dress?

The best bit is that the lowdown comes from YOU. Round here, you are the influencer. You shape the board and make it great. We want you to get involved by writing posts and comments to inspire us, teach us, challenge us or simply make us laugh. The power is in your hands, literally.

Also, if you are coming. Make the most of it! We are in a little cute village with very good restaurants, pub, coffee places, a marina and Quay to walk around. If you are coming from far away, take advantage and spend the day here.

My daughter has her prom this year then my other daughter has her next year I'm dreading it we live in Norfolk and there is literally maybe 1 or 2 very overpriced shops with prom dresses so we have to look online only so we have from now till July to buy and try as many proms dresses as possible and I don't have the money.

Could we possibly use this post to buy & sell from eachother? I'm sure there's people who'd be interested in these beautiful dresses. From a Yr 11 Mum.

I bought my daughters from asos for £70. I think it’s obscene how much some families feel they need to spend, whilst other families are struggling to even buy the ticket. There’s also plenty of bargains on eBay or vinted, dress only worn once, which can be dry cleaned.

My mum spent hundreds on our dresses. Gave me and my sister an idea and we are currently in the process of setting up a business where we hire prom dresses out at a fraction of the price. Happy to send over pics of all the lovely dresses we have. Saves spending a fortune on something that’s likely to only be worn once

Go to Fonthill Road in Finsbury Park. It’s wholesale shops but open to the public on Saturdays.

Paid £24.50 for my daughter’s prom dress from ASOS -we ordered a variety from a number of places of varying prices also from Next who carry a decent range as well and that was the one she wanted and looked amazing. Won the award for the best ‘Glow Up’ at her Yr11 prom in 2019.

Current Yr11 daughter isn’t even thinking about prom yet; trying to get through mock results and parents evening tomorrow first of all.

My advice is don’t go mad; it’s one night and it’s unlikely she’ll ever wear it again.
