Prom is just around the corner and many seniors and juniors are following the traditions of prom. Some seniors began prom countdown on the first day of high school, some are just now beginning their plans, and some simply don’t care for the detailed charade that is promposals.

Thanks to social media, promposal standards have increased from what they were years ago straying away from the simple question of “Would you go to prom with me?” Various videos of elaborate promposals can be found surfing the internet, especially on YouTube, showing anything from scavenger hunts to flash mobs.

As promposals continue to get more elaborate and extravagant, it’s very important to know the proper etiquette for a promposal therefore, I’ve compiled a list of Do’s and Don’ts for you to keep in mind when planning a promposal.

Don’t be obnoxious

There’s a fine line between a cute and meaningful promposal and one that’s annoying.

Don’t go WAY over the top

Keep in mind that it’s prom proposal, not a marriage proposal.

Don’t embarrass them

There are people who don’t like big promposals so keep it simple for those who are more reserved if that’s what they want.

Don’t procrastinate

Waiting until the last minute will only make things more difficult for you especially if you’re not 100% sure they’ll say yes to you.

Be thoughtful

Do something that the person you are asking likes. Make the promposal about them that way they’ll remember that moment.

Involve food

Who would say no to pizza, chocolate, or donuts?

Be creative

With many proposals going around remember to keep it original and fun because no like a copy cat.
