When my daughter went to her Senior prom, a group of us mothers got together and prepared a very fine dinner for 6 couples. I don't remember the menu, but it ws very elegantly presented and the kids had a ball. This saved a lot of money for the young men, and we stayed out of the picture, except to serve the meal. I think having a responsible adult drive them is the way to go, either by pooling money for a limo, or whatever. There was no question of renting any hotel room, either. An after prom party at someones home sunds great, but I wouldn't want to not know where my kids are on any night. Old fashioned, I guess.

For my prom no one went out for a meal. We ate at the prom. My parents would never have allowed us to get a hotel room (smart parents they were), but they did allow all my friends and dates to sleep over their house. They stayed upstairs so we could have our privacy (as much privacy as 12 people in a living room can have). Dad made a big breakfast for all of us the next morning.
I know that when my daughter is ready for her prom she will NOT be getting a hotel room no matter what.

Def. no hotel room. I don't care if he is 18. I totally agree on that.

Well discovered tonight that the guys have an away game (double header) prom night so we may end up with quite a few upset girls on our hands because they may not make it back until an hour before prom. I can't wait to seem them all dressed up though. I got to see his girlfriends dress today and its beautiful. I kept asking him what color it was and neither was sure of what color to call it so she brought it to the game. So we're (my son and I) off to go by her corsage tomorrow. I thought I was suppose to buy his flower also but she wants to buy it......works for me
