For some high-schoolers, prom is one of those nights you want to be picture perfect. However, that fairy tale evening can cost you. According to Visa, it can run up to more than one-thousand dollars.

To ease the burden, one local organization is providing prom dresses for FREE. Bernice Edwards, the executive director of First State says, “Once they put the dress on, put the makeup on, dress up pretty, who knows? Nobody knows whether it's a borrowed dress or it's a bought dress.”

Gee...You Will is a local formal wear lending organization whose partnered with the First State Community Action Agency in Georgetown.

Now in their thirteenth year, they have nearly three- hundred dresses sizes zero to thirty six, in all sorts of styles available to borrow for free. We're told all anyone has to do is call and make an appointment for a fitting.

Roseymary Joseph Kappel says,”They come in here and they see the selection and they start trying things on. It's almost like they're a little kid. Let's play dress up. When they find one that fits and makes them feel wonderful, they leave here with the biggest smiles on their face."

Dresses are due back within a week to ten days following the event. Ladies are asked to bring them in cleaned or pay ten dollars to get that done.Read more at:plus size evening dresses uk | mermaid prom dresses uk
