PROM SAVING TIPS:
Save on Florists: Shop for flowers at your local grocery store, or create your own boutonniere or bouquet.
Save on Hair: Instead of visiting a salon, try styling your own hair with tips and tricks found on sites like YouTube or Pinterest, or look into beauty schools which tend to cost much less than traditional salons.
Save on Accessories: When looking for items like purses, shoes, and jewelry for ladies or ties for guys, see what you have in stock first, as you may already own the perfect necklace or bracelet. If not, try shopping the discount racks at department stores, or even hitting up thrift stores for some treasures.
