Just like I don't get the giant, paying off for a decade weddings...I don't get the mini wedding prom.

Just for the record, I also don't get the hall renting, buffet, big deal sweet 16 party...kind of like a poor man's debutante ball.

"Fast forward to 2008 and now parents are left on the hook for the dress, the limo, prom tickets, hair, make-up, manicures, pedicures etc. The whole bill now runs over $1,000 once you factor in all these costs.

Retailers have even told me that Grade 8 graduation has become like a mini-prom, with parents forking over $2-300 for a dress for a 12-yeard old!"

A grand to go to a party?

You must be mad.

Why does everything have to be over the top?
