This is such a great idea on many levels.

To put $250 into a prom dress for a few hours is like the same for a unique bride's maid outfit to be worn maybe only once if there is no other sister or such to pass it along to and then ultimately, into the closet forever.

Guys got a little lot luckier...we got to rent our
ugly tuxedos and shoes from year to year, wedding to wedding.

Great program, ladies.

How great is this!!!! WOW! I wish something like this had been going on when I was going to school. Missed Prom because I couldn't afford a dress. Such a great idea, especially in this economy. Cruces, you rock!!!
