An interesting thread; when I left my grammar school in the U.K. in the 70s we just ..... left.  No celebrations of any sort.  Proms are becoming a 'thing' now though.

So DH took him to reserve the tux.  He got black with a gold long tie and vest.  I guess the place had all kinds of pictures of the finished look.

I can't get over the cost!  Tux 185.00.  Two prom tickets 120.00.  I couldn't bring myself to look at the picture cost yet!

Oh well. I'm sure he will have a great time!

I would say the prom tickets' cost isn't bad (mine was $80 for two tickets in 1988), but, for my prom, that included dinner (however, I remember that dinner included a stewed tomato, something I hardly considered "gourmet," which is how they were touting the dinner that was being provided; I think chicken breast was the protein).
