When you want to ask a girl to prom, you'll need a dash of courage, a few deep breaths, and a prom proposal that she can't refuse. Here are some tips and creative ways to ask a girl to prom - hopefully these ideas will make the experience as painless as possible for you.
1. Invite Her in a YouTube Video
Upload a short video to YouTube asking her, "will you go to prom with me?" To protect her privacy, either use her initials or set the video to "private". Send her a link to the video in an IM or text message. Or to send her on a real scavenger hunt, combine it with something else on this list and hide instructions for finding the video in something else.
2. Give Her a Stuffed Animal
Tie a ribbon around the neck of a stuffed animal, and attach a tag to the ribbon that says, "Will you go to prom with me?" For an extra dose of cheese, coordinate the animal with the message. For instance, how about a horse that says, "Prom with me: yea or neigh?", or a penguin that says, "going to prom with you would be the coolest."
3. Slip It Into a Fortune Cookie
Buy some custom fortune cookies and fill them with a personalized "Will you go to prom with me?" message. Pass her a cookie in the school cafeteria, or even better, take her out for Chinese food and hand her one at the end of the meal.
4. Send Her a Bouquet of Flowers
There's no more romantic way to ask a girl to prom than with flowers. Order a bouquet and sign the card, "Will you go to prom with me?" If you want to accomplish the same thing for cheaper, buy a bouquet from the supermarket or make one out of flowers from your garden.
