How to Create the Best Promposal

May 17, 2016

Although it may not be time to get married, all high school seniors are looking for a proposal of some sort – specifically, the promposal (ladies, you know what we’re talking about!). While yes, asking someone to prom over dinner may be all it takes for some couples, if you’re in high school or have been around high schoolers lately, you know that now, the name of the game is to go big or go home!

With that said, whether you’re looking for suggestions on how to get your significant other to ask you to prom, or if you’re the asker looking for some clever promposal ideas, here is how you can create the best promposal using flowers:

prom corsages

Spell It Out

Using the petals from her favorite flowers, spell out “prom?” or “will you go to prom with me?” and lead her to where you’ve done so by creating a flower trail that also uses petals. You can choose to spell out the words on the floor, on the table, or on a large poster that you hang up at school – just make sure you also have a bouquet of her favorite flowers waiting for her at the final destination too!

Write It Out

If she’s like most girls, the first thing she’ll probably do when presented with a flower is stick her nose in it and smell it – use this as an opportunity to take her by surprise! Instead of giving her the flower as is, write “will you go to prom with me?” across the petals so that it’s the first thing she sees as she goes to take a whiff!

No prom ensemble is complete without a corsage or boutonniere, so think about giving her a corsage early on and ask her if she thinks the flowers will match her dress. Then, when she asks you what dress you’re talking about, let her know it’s her prom dress and that you’re certain it will match your suit – we’re sure she’ll get the hint!

Send a Flower a Day

There’s nothing like the suspense of waiting for a promposal, so keep her on the edge of her seat by sending her one flower a day for a week or two – you can send it to her home or her classroom, you choose! When you’re ready to officially “prompose,” make sure she finds you waiting with an entire bouquet filled with that same flower and ask away!

On the day that you’re ready to pop the question, take five roses (or her favorite flower if you prefer) and attach a card to the stem of each one. Then, put a P on the first card, an R on the second, and so on and so forth until all together the flowers spell out “prom?” At this point, recruit your friends to deliver one flower at a time throughout the day in any letter order so that once she has them all, she has to unscramble them to figure out your message!

We know there are a ton of ways to be creative when it comes to promposals, but if there is one way to guarantee that your special someone says yes, it’s by using flowers as your main prop!
