Debs Costs

Anyone any views on how much of a budget I should set my daughter for her debs. My thoughts are to set a budget for the whole affair, i.e. dress, accessories etc and it is up to her how she spends it. If she wants to cut back on how much she spends on the dress to put towards limo hire with her friends then she can once she stays within budget. Will this work and how much should I allow her in the budget?

This is a diffucult one to comment on because its such a special time and you dont want to ruin it by limiting the costs, but you obviously dont want it to get out of hand. I think you should decide in accordance with your personal financial circumstances.
