When you have your heart set on asking a special girl to the prom, knowing the right way to ask can be difficult. Avoid setting yourself up for rejection by coming up with a creative invite rather than just asking like everyone else.
Here are a few ideas that are sure to get her attention and win her over.
Convince a Teacher to Put Your Invite on a Test
Just about everyone has at least one cool teacher, and this is a great time to use their coolness to your advantage. Talk to one of your girl’s teachers, and ask them to put your invite on her copy of an upcoming test. The question can be written as a multiple choice, true or false, or even an essay question.
Think of it as a more grown up twist on the class Kindergarten love note reading, “Do you like me? Check yes or no.”
Have it Written on the Marquee at a Movie Theater
Every girl longs to see her name written in lights. Why not use your prom invitation to make that dream come true? Ask her out on a date to see a movie, and when she accepts, call the theater’s manager. Find out if it would be possible for them to spell out your request on the marquee or an outdoor sign. If they agree, make sure you give them her name and yours so she will know the request is from her.
Girls love romance, so this is a great way to start a date, and it is likely to earn you a positive response.
Surprise Her During a Date Night at Home
Food isn’t just the way to a man’s heart. It can score you some major points with a girl too. Invite her over for pizza and a movie, and use the pizza as an opportunity to pop the question. If you have it delivered, ask the restaurant to put a note in the box asking, “Will you go to prom with me?”. If you happen to be handy in the kitchen, you can impress her even more by whipping up a tasty pizza yourself and spelling out your request in toppings.
No matter who you plan on asking to the prom, using a bit of creativity is a great way to get the response you’re looking for. Whether your request is romantic, thoughtful, or downright silly, it will be sure to get her attention.
