5 Awesome Ways to Prompose

Mar 30, 2016

“Promposals” have made asking a date to prom more fun, memorable and creative than ever before. To help get a “yes” to the big question, here are five unique ways to prompose that are sure to get you noticed:

  1. A punny question: Try bringing your date-to-be a fresh, hot pizza (which will already score you some points) and include this note: “Will you go to prom with me or is this too cheesy?”
  2. The element of surprise: Fill his or her locker with balloons and write “Prom?” on each one.
  3. True romance: Spell out your question in rose petals – a classic choice for two lovebirds.
  4. Scavenger hunt: Give your date clues that lead them to find you holding a sign that asks them to the dance!
  5. Go big or go home: Get the question on the Jumbotron at the big game.


You’ll get extra points for creativity if you go with one of these promposals. Don’t worry, we won’t tell that you got the idea from us. And when it’s time to get decked out, DressProm has you covered for the perfect prom attire.
