Prom can be an expensive affair. While some parents will give their daughters hundreds or even thousands of dollars so that they can get the dress of their dreams, other parents don't want or can't afford to do that. But there are other ways a parent can help their daughter have her dream prom dress. Take David Herron for example. His daughter Mariah was having trouble finding a prom dress made of camouflage fabric within her price range, so he made her one.
