Many girls grow up dreaming about their proposal. They wonder how their future fiancée is going to make the day unforgettable. After all, it is the start to the rest of your life, right?

In recent years, these dreams have been coming true much earlier. No, there’s not been an epidemic of girls getting engaged in high school. Instead, there has been an epidemic of PROMposals. It’s not enough anymore to just ask the simple question of “Will you go to prom with me?” If a guy doesn’t make a huge production of his prom invitation, the girl isn’t going to go for it–or so that’s the way it seems today.

2018 may be the most elaborate year yet.


Some people use their date’s favorite activities to win them over.


Some people decide to take a more romantic approach.


Food is always the way to a woman’s heart.


Remember that originality is key! Use these awesome promposals as inspiration, but if you’re looking to do one on your own, get creative! Listen to your date and base your promposals on her interests. There is no way she will turn you down!
