There are lots of creative ways to show your crush that you’re not just handsome, but original, too! Take a look at these ten promposal ideas and see if there isn’t one that will win your crush’s heart! 

Back In Time

Why not brush up on some formalwear history, and choose a vintage look that will make your girl excited to travel back through time with you. A formal tailcoat like the Men's Black Tailcoat is just one of many style options that would make an impressive statement!   [caption id="attachment_2898" align="aligncenter" width="165"]tux107 Sparkling cider in champaign glasses would be a great touch.[/caption]

Goofy and Endearing

If you can make your crush laugh, you’re more than halfway to a prom date. What could be goofier, or more endearing for a prom invitation, than to pop the question while wearing an orange Dumb and Dumber tuxedo? Just be sure your potential date understands that you will not be wearing it to the prom, unless of course, she has a bright orange prom dress to match!

Movie Themed

What’s your girl’s favorite movie? You can use it as the theme of your promposal. While you might not be able to snag a costume, you can print out a digitally doctored movie poster with your name linked to hers, plus a few altered movie quotes. “It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a promposal!”

Scandal Rag

Speaking of doctored, what could be more fun than a faux gossip rag, with your name implicated in a love scandal with your crush? Toss in your own photos, plus a few celebrity mug shots, for an entertaining promposal. Did you dump Britney to ask your crush to the prom? Scandalous!

Geek Chic

Sure, your crush is a full-on nerd, but darn it, she’s hotter than the reactor core of a starship. Send her an invitation for stardate Day/Month/Year, High School Auditorium, Planet Earth. Better yet, record an online invitation as a starship captain and tell her that her hotness readings are off the scale. Red alert: be sure to get your lingo straight. Nerds are OCD about details. Bonus points: slip a starfleet pin or elven brooch into her corsage.

Romance Novel

If your girl loves romance novels, make up one of your own, or have a literary friend write up a romantic scene that you can read. “He looked into her beautiful brown eyes and breathed “Oh, X, I can’t live without you. Come with me to the prom, and make me the happiest man on earth.” The cornier, the better! [caption id="attachment_2886" align="aligncenter" width="225"]Set the scene for your own romance novel!

Scavenger Hunt

Throw a scavenger hunt with your friends, and invite your crush. Be sure to slip a nicely-penned promposal invitation inside the treasure she’ll find. Make it something attractive and romantic: a pretty box, a silken bag, or a red envelope.

Flash Mob

If your girl lives at the mall, invite her to lunch there and have your friends surprise her with a flash mob promposal from you.


Pack a romantic lunchbox for your crush. Include chocolate hearts, Valentine’s candies, a small, stuffed animal and a romantic card with your promposal invitation.

Roving Reporter

Get the staff of your school newspaper to work with you. Go to your crush as one of the reporters and have them ask her questions about the prom. Then you can ask her to go with you.
