Promposals:

  • Make a sign: signs are cute even though they’re cliche.
  • Make sure to have someone ready with a camera, these moments are meant to be captured.
  • Use colorful flowers, or a single rose to make a statement. If you’re trying to tell the person something special, look up the meanings of the flower colors.
  • If you’re detail oriented and patient, create the word “Prom?” In his/her front lawn out of candles. (Make sure it’s not going to rain or just use the electric ones).
  • Buy their favorite books from a half priced book store and give them to him/her intermittently during the day, giving them a specific page and word count to go to, creating “Will you go to prom” and then you verbally finish “with me?”.
  • If you’re really struggling to come up with ideas, Pinterest will become your best friend.

Transportation:

Limos and party buses are expensive, so if you are going to rent one, take a lot of people to divide the cost. Also, be aware that most rental services raise their prices for the Prom occasion due to high demand.
