Being a mom of three girls can be quite fun. Especially now that prom season has rolled around think of all the prom dresses I will have to buy in my lifetime especially if they are asked to more than one prom. My oldest daughter attended 4 proms. Yep four whopping proms but one of those was the 8th grade prom. Now she has gone on to college, it is my middle daughter’s turn. Imagine my surprise one day when I got her car keys at one of her soccer games to grab something out of her car to find this message written on her car window.
I thought it was so unique that she was asked using the word “Kick” as she is a soccer player. But now comes the great hunt for the prom dresses. Here are several ways that you can save on a prom dress for your daughter.
- Shop thrift stores. Believe it or not they actually have some great deals on prom dresses. I bought one of my older daughter’s dresses that she wore for $10 from a thrift store. It was a .
- Ask around and see if you can borrow one or if anyone has one that they want to get rid of. That is how my oldest daughter got her prom dress last year. A friend of mine had it sitting in her closet. It was in mint condition and it looked amazing on my daughter.
- Check out yard sales. I have lost count on to how many dresses I have seen at yard sales.
- Shop online. Believe it or not there are more of a selection online and sometimes you can get a better deal online than you can in store. Of course you can’t try on the dress to see if you like it and that is part of the fun of prom dress shopping but you can still shop stores for a dress that you like and then search for it online. I found a great deal on her for her junior prom and I only paid $25 for that one. So whether you are looking for a long or might be your best bet.
Just remember prom dresses don’t have to break the bank you can still find amazing dresses on a shoestring budget. You just need to know where to look and how much you want to pay. Do you have a daughter going to prom this year? Hope this helps you this prom season.
