As prom approaches, we have seen many different ways students have been asked to prom. Some stuck to the sweet and simple, and others went all out.
Sophomore Jack Beckman thought up of a way to ask his girlfriend to prom with one of her friends. He was planning it a week in advance.
“I gave her a letter each period, like “p” the first through 4 periods and lastly I held the “?” to her,” Beckman said.
Though Beckman admitted he was a little nervous he said he was mostly excited and thought it went really well.
“I wouldn’t have changed anything,” Beckman said.
Some guys took a slightly less suspenseful approach. Sophomore Kadence Waggoner was in for a surprise when she was packing for her vacation and she gets a text to come outside. Outside spelled out with candles was the simple phrase, “prom?”
“I walked outside and I saw him and the lights and he came up to me and asked me if I would like to go to prom with him,” Waggoner said.
Waggoner was happy with the way she was asked.
“It was really cute. I was really surprised because I honestly had no idea and I was happy because I wanted to go with him. Wow that story sounds really cliché,” Waggoner said.
Junior Kaylee Boehm was also very happy with the way she was asked.
“Matt and I had arranged to get lunch, and I wanted to go to Jamba Juice, but he wanted to go to his house so I just went along with it,” Boehm said.
When they arrived he told he she could just grab whatever she wanted from the fridge.
“When I opened it I found beautiful roses with a bow on them and a sign that said “prom?” Boehm said.
Though Boehm had a feeling he might ask, she was still surprised.
“I didn’t expect him to ask that day at all or the way he did it,” Boehm said. “It made me super happy, makes me smile thinking about it!”
These are just a few of the many different way students have asked someone to prom, but there is still time. So get creative and maybe you can take the cake in the best way to ask a date to prom.
