There are many ways to get gorgeous prom dresses under 100, if you know where to look. Before the search begins it is best to determine the colors and styles one is willing to wear or that look best on the young lady. When this is determined it will make the search much simpler. The next step is to scan store ads and look online.

There are sites that offer a variety of choices for $70 or less, but the search should begin early, before they are sold out. After Christmas is a good time to start for a real bargain that will fit the budget and still allow a girl to look fabulous.

Retail stores and specialty stores offer many choices, but often they are priced just out of reach. There are consignment shops and next to new stores that carry plenty of choices in a variety of sizes. For cheap prom dresses under 100, this is a good way to find something that fits the budget.

Most consignment shops will also let young ladies try on the gowns. There are also thrift stores to check out. The items may be last year’s styles or colors, but may work with a particular skin tone and hair color. Thrift stores can offer prices as low as $10 to $20, so prom dresses under 100 dollars are definitely possible.

Many second hand shops offer the plus size prom dresses under 100. Another way to find them is to search the classifieds online. There are families planning to send their new graduates off to college and need the extra cash for expenses. If you are willing to wear something that is not full length, you can find short prom dresses under 100.

Many catalogs have lower prices on the mini versions and they can be just as trendy or stylish. This is a great option for the girl who wants to be different or who prefers to make a bold statement with her formal attire on the special day.

The prom is one of the most important events of a young girl’s life. How she feels about the way she looks, can make all the difference between a happy memorable event and one she will wish had never happened. Not having as much money as one would like to have should not mean having to settle for something that she would not be satisfied with. It may take some work and ingenuity, but very nice prom dresses can be had without breaking the bank.
