    That has been really popular down here lately, a friend of mine had her bridesmaids wear boots with short dresses for her wedding and it looked really cute.

    It's been long dresses here as well. I actually still have my prom dress... Its discolored a bit in some areas. I don't have the heart to get rid of it (and it's discolored in some areas now) :/ Here is a pic (it's a brighter turquoise in person):

    But honestly it's none of my business.

    By the way I LOVE skirts and dresses with boots. I don't own heels and I rarely wear flats so if it's fall, spring, or winter and I'm in a skirt or dress, I'm also in boots.

    Two years ago DH was supposed to chaperone Prom. I did not end up going because we had a major tornado that day. That same year DH taught a college class at a local Deaf School. We had to go to their formal as well. From that time on, I have been making sure I have a formal dress on hand. DH tends to spring these things on me last minute.

    I found a green velvet dress I purchased pre-kids (a.k.a. before I gained 60 lbs) recently, and luckily I think the style is classic enough that I could wear it for something formal in the winter. Luckily I can get back into it now!

    Where I live, Proms are held once for the kids in their last year of high school.

    They were just taking off when I left school and I never went. I was tubby and the thought of having to find a gorgeous dress that I knew I would look horrid in, stopped me.

    I think they can be harmful, especially with Prom King and Queens. I mean, some kids take these things so personally when they're young. Whereas an adult would know it meant nothing.

    When DD has hers, I will deinfinitely do my best to get her the dress she would like.

    I think I would be willing to spend a couple of hundred for my daughters prom, but not $1000. That just seems way too steep!
    All this, exactly! Although my junior year I went with a senior that liked me and he got mad and left the after party (at a friend's hotel room) because I was pretty much blowing him off. I did feel a little bad about that later Senior year I went with a good friend, who we all knew was gay but he hadn't come out yet. Both times I had a blast and I'm certain my parents didn't spend more than $100 on each dress. We never did the limo thing, and we ate before hand at reasonable restaurants like Olive Garden. The actual prom itself was fairly lame, but we had fun doing the before and after thing and just being together as a group.

    Now I'm on this BBBS group on facebook for my area (like an online garage sale), and parents are always on there selling their daughter's "only worn once" prom dresses for $200+....they usually state that they paid $500+ for them new. I am shocked at how much dresses cost these days!! I don't see the need to break the bank or go into debt over prom, but if my daughters want to go, I will do what I can to help them wear something that they feel good in and have a fun/reasonably priced time.

    a la Taylor Swift. She wore that look for quite a while, if I remember correctly.
