Did you know that more than 50% of people in the United States never attended prom?
Juniors and seniors can’t wait for prom. They get to spend an entire evening with their closest friends and fun music.
One of the most stressful things about prom, however, is figuring out a unique way to ask your partner.
Continue reading to discover good prom proposals that will result in an excited yes!
1. Partner up With a Puppy
If your partner loves puppies and can’t get enough of them, you can use them in your prom proposal.
Even if you can’t buy a puppy for your date, you can still use them when asking the question. You can put your question on the dog’s nametag or tied around their collar. This is a unique way to ask your date to the prom and everyone will want to play with the messenger.
2. Get Their Favorite Food
Good prom proposals don’t always have to include puppies or expensive gifts.
One of the best ways to ask them to the dance is with their favorite treats. Many people have bought boxes of chocolate that spell out “will you go to prom with me?” for their significant other. This is a fun and tasty way that will, hopefully, result in a yes.
Some companies, like M&M, let you customize their candies and you can ask in that way as well. At the end of the day, your date will love getting their favorite treats and can start preparing for the dance.
3. Have Your Friends Help
Do you and your date have the same friends?
If so, you can get them in on asking them to prom. Many people recommend having your friends hold up the letters of “prom” and you can be at the end. You can have flowers, chocolate, or a sign in your hands to gift them when they say yes.
The best part about asking them this way is that everyone can be involved!
4. Decorate Their Locker
Decorating your date’s locker is one of the most creative ways that you can ask them, especially if you know their combination.
Before they arrive at school you can decorate it with anything you want. Many people use a theme, such as princesses, and they decorate with glitter, tiaras, and Disney characters. You can also put streamers or a sign on their locker.
If you decide to go all out and fill their locker with glitter and confetti, make sure you have a broom nearby. You should also double-check that you went to the right locker too!
5. Ask in a Game
There are many ways to ask your date to the prom, why not make it fun?
Play charades or mime out your question and let them guess it for themselves. You can also ask them the next time that you play Speak-it-Out! Asking them in a game is a fun way that will always catch them off guard.
If you are playing a game that involves cards, like Monopoly or Life, you put a custom card in the deck that will pop the prom question.
6. Stop by Starbucks
If your date has a Starbucks obsession, you can use it to make your prom proposal.
Before you visit them, you can stop by Starbucks and have them ask the question instead of writing your name on the cup. You can get their favorite Frappuccino or latte that will energize them to dance the night away.
7. Bake Something
Baking a cake, cookies, or cupcakes is always an excellent idea if you want to surprise your partner.
You can bake their favorite dessert and satisfy their sweet tooth to get a yes. Most people that make cakes write the question in icing on the top. You can also do this with cupcakes and cookies, depending on how you decorate them.
If you aren’t the best baker, you can always go to the store and get edible cookie dough. This is an excellent alternative and is just as tasty.
8. Create a Mixtape
Streaming music is convenient, but there is nothing better than a homemade mixtape.
Creating a customized mixtape (or playlist) can be a great way to ask your question and show your partner how much they mean to you. You should include songs that are unique to your relationship, age, and culture.
This gift is long-lasting and sure to put a smile on their face. If you hire a limo service on the day of the prom, you can jam out to it on the ride there!
9. Use Balloons
There are many things you can do with balloons.
One of the best ways to make your prom proposal is by filling up your date’s bedroom, locker, or car with balloons. This is always a fun and cute way to ask the question and doesn’t involve much work but is just as special.
You can also order custom balloons that spell out your question!
10. Ask at a Sporting Event
For the full-on romantics, a great way to make a prom proposal is at your date’s sporting events.
If your date plays on the hockey team, you can get a group of friends to hold up signs asking them to go with you. You can also ask them in half-time shows and over the speakers, depending on what your school will allow.
