The average cost of attending prom is about $1,100 nationwide. We spent nearly half that which is ridiculous for a kiddo who has yet to get a job, but it's a special occasion and a really good kiddo, LOL. Do you think spending a thousand dollars for one night is about right or are parents spoiling their teens these days?

OMG.....I think that is way, way to much to spend!!!!  I guess I'm lucky I have boys!  Yikes!  Major spoiling going on if someone is spending a $1000 on Prom!

You're right. Katie thinks she's "roughing it" because she's going to have a friend do her hair instead of going to the salon. I thought about making her an appointment but she's so darn picky she would probably pull down the updo as soon as we left anyway! This way her hair will be down and fixed the way she wants it in the first place (for free).
