A promposal can be as simple, yet still romantic, as just taking your date out to a nice dinner, or make dinner yourself, and have the question incorporated into the desert. Like in the promposal above, just a simple, "prom?" is needed. We especially love this chocolate cake promposal because it came from one of our very own Roo Girls!

It doesn't get much easier than that for a prom proposal! If you know someone who works at a Taco Bell, take this idea to the next level by having the promposal displayed for all to see on the store's signage, like this promposal.
12) Pizza Promposal
Seeing a trend yet? Pairing food and a cute message is such an easy and fun way to pull together a promposal. Grab a pizza, or make one yourself like this heart-shaped pizza, and add a cute message like "you've got a pizza my heart" or "I know this is cheesy, but...prom?" for a prom proposal idea that anyone will want to eat up. We're giving this pizza promposal extra props for being in the share of a heart.
11) Whale Cookie Cake Promposal
We're not done with the food or cute slogan promposals yet! Next up is this cute cookie cake promposal. If you're a baker with an artistic mind, this is such a great idea, especially if your date is an animal lover. Show off your baking skills by making a yummy cookie cake, adding the slogan, "Whale you be my prom date?" to the top of it for a cute, fun-loving promposal. We had to make this our favorite food promposal because of the clear passion that went into baking something like this!
10) Baseball Promposal
Is your date a big sports player or fan? Find a way to incorporate his or her favorite sport into the promposal. This promposal even found a cute way to incorporate the person's position on the team - the team manager! Top off the cute message with a pretty bouquet of flowers to add a little bit of romance.
9) Volleyball Promposal
For another sports promposal idea, this volleyball promposal is so creative and sent in from one of our very own Roo Girls! We couldn't be more impressed with the creativity that went into putting this promposal message together.
8) Dog Promposal
Have a cute pet in your life or in your date's life? Incorporate the lovable creature into your promposal! After all, who can say no to a cute fluffy face like this dog? You can create a cute dog themed promposal with a message like, "Prom would be 'ruff' without you." Most pets can be incorporated into a promposal idea, so don't get stuck if there are no dogs around to help out your mission. Have some fish? Use the message, "Out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to prom with me?" Live on a farm and have a goat? The message could be as easy as "praaaam?"
7) Prom Ring Promposal
Want a really romantic way to ask your date to prom? Find a pretty ring, and include the message "I prom?se." Not only will they get a promposal to remember, but they'll get a promise ring that they can keep forever.

4) Makeup Promposal

3) Guitar Pick Promposal
If your date is a guitarist, put together a a special promposal with a personalized guitar pick. Not only will they have a memento to remember the special day, but they'll see how much you care about and pay attention to their personal interests.
2) Beauty and the Beast Promposal
With the new Disney live action Beauty and the Beast movie released in March, what could be more romantic than a Beauty and the Beast promposal? This idea has become popular long before the initial mention of the movie remake, so there's been many different forms of this promposal through the years. The consistent factor throughout all Beauty and the Beast promposals is using the famous rose. We love the version in the image above, and check out this one for another idea.
1) Prince Charming Promposal
Beauty and the Beast isn't the only classic Disney movie to pull promposal inspiration from. Channel the classic story of Cinderella by asking your date to prom as Prince Charming. Add some amusement to an otherwise more serious and romantic promposal by presenting your date with sneakers rather than heels. You can even take it a step further by getting customized sneakers through NIKEiD! This Prince Charming Promposal takes our number one spot because it hits every just about every emotion: romantic (who doesn't want to be asked by Prince Charming to prom?), cute (loving those Nike shoes!), and funny (you must have a good sense of humor to go so far as to dress up as Prince Charming!).
However you decide to ask your date to prom, just remember to breathe, relax, and have some fun!
