Choosing a prom dress is a huge decision for a teenage girl. She must consider style, fit, cost, and parental approval. For that reason, there is a lot of shopping around involved with choosing the right dress. To make it easy, here is a list of stores in the Memphis area that sell prom dresses and other formal wear such as cotillion and quinceanera dresses. Some stores specialize in this attire while others offer the gowns in addition to other types of apparel.
31 Dresses is an upscale consignment shop in Bartlett. They sell new and like-new formal wear on consignment, at a fraction of the original retail price. Unfortunately, shopping is typically done by appointment only so you will need to call to schedule a time to come in.
