It's prom season in metro Atlanta. According to a study by Visa Inc., prom spending has increased. The average American family will fork out nearly $1,100 for their teen.
That's up 33% from last year being spent on dresses, manicures, make-up, limousines and professional photographers among other things. Jason Alderman, a senior director of financial education for Visa, says reality tv has a lot to do with it.
