A prom is a formal dance or gathering of upper class high school students in the U.S. and Canada. Prom is short for promenade and is usually held near the end of
junior and/or senior year: Junior Prom and Senior Prom. There are many costs associated with Prom Night: tuxedos, formal dresses, corsage/boutonniere,
shoes, photos, tickets, limo, hairdresser, etc. Preparation usually begins far in advance and retailers will have special offers, sales and coupons in the time leading up to
the prom season.
