At long last, prom season is upon us! While many juniors and seniors are trudging bravely through various stages of the college admission process, prom offers a fun and much-needed respite from all the tests, applications, and planning.
Over the past few years, sites like YouTube, Tumblr, and Instagram have been flooded with pictures and videos of students’ “promposals”—the cute, clever, and sometimes elaborate ways in which guys and gals alike ask one another to prom. So close your books, put your pencils down, sit back, and check out these seriously creative promposals.
An enchanted picnic
High school senior Paige Britton thought she was meeting her friend Justice Garrish for a picnic. What she got instead was truly magical.
A model prom date
High school senior Jake Davidson took a leap of faith and posted a YouTube video asking supermodel Kate Upton to be his prom date. She politely declined, but Danish supermodel Nina Agdal stepped in and took her place!
Up in the air
In a particularly elaborate promposal, a Canadian student managed to fill one of the halls at his high school with 1,500 balloons and dozens of pink and white streamers.
Ping pong promposal
Last year, one especially imaginative student stuffed his girlfriend's locker with 500 ping pong balls, each of which bore a one-word question: "Prom?"
An adorable duet
Showing off their musical chops, two friends asked their girls to prom by performing a Jason Mraz song for them in the cafeteria.
