Bush says that girls tend to be more expensive than boys.
Boys generally hire the car but the girls need to go for makeup rehearsals, do their nails, and get outfits for the actual Matric Dance, and the after party adds Bush.
Bush says that matric dance dresses range in price.
If you hire a dress, it can be about R900. If you go buy a dress, it can be anything from R1800. I have heard parents spending R10 000 - R15 000 for a dress.Nikki Bush, creative parenting expert
