Plan the Perfect Prom (On a Budget)

Plan the Perfect Prom (On a Budget)

Lets face it - every girl wants to feel like a princess, and prom gives us the perfect opportunity to get pampered in a way that most won’t experience again until wedding bells chime. A new study shows that American families will spend an average of $1,078 on everything from the tickets and limo to the dress, shoes and jewelry. While we can’t help with the cost of tickets, or convince your daughter that she doesn’t need a dress that costs more than your mortgage, Deals Magazine has great offers to help you and your high schooler survive prom fever.

The Look

Find a variety of formalwear and accessories for guys and gals at Ladies & Gentlemen’s Style Shop, Inc., in Broadview.

Donate My Dress is a national network of dress drives that features a directory of organizations and locations for girls to donate or receive formal dresses. Check out the organizations in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, and help make someone’s prom unforgettable.

Beauty in Bloom

Stop by Williams Florist in Highland, Ind., or Sass and Class Flowers in Orland Park for a gorgeous corsage or boutineer.

Finishing Touches

Check out Sorelle in Logan Square for beautiful brows, or get glammed up at Old Town Boutique.

House of Blonde in Arlington Heights and Sandra Araceli Salon in Elk Grove Village are perfect places to get the works in the northwest ‘burbs.

Check hair and nails off the “to do” list at Nikk & Company Hair Salon in Olympia Fields.

Elan Hair Salon in Batavia offers fabulous updos, and Elite Beauty Institute in Westmont has relaxing mani-pedis.

Keep the Party Going

Gather up the gang for bowling at Four Seasons Sports in Sycamore or Raymond’s Bowl & Entertainment Center in Johnsburg.

Let the good times roll at Aurora Skate Center or LazerMaxx in Elgin.


Have a happy and safe prom season!
