I think it is the done thing to go for quite a formal dress nowadays, but have no direct experience as only have one DS who is 2! Have overheard mothers and daughters in Monsoon though. How old is year 6? <clueless about new fangled school year system>

I am a dry cleaner and we see prom dresses and this sort of thing all the time..I am always amazed at how old fashioned and frumpy the dresses are that come in. I would say formal is the way they do it these days.

I'd find out what everyone else is wearing, my mum dressed me in a prom dress for the school disco where everyone else was in jeans, I sat in the corner all night.

Thanks apple and moses mummy and Bishboschone.

The school said its formal wear no jeans , trainers etc so i guess she will be good . I have to admit the dress is gorgeous but made me realise my girl is growing up
. I have asked shannon to ask her friends what they are wearing today .
