  • Top 20 Promposals

    Promposals, also known as "prom proposals," have always been a tradition that accompanied the annual high school celebration. The ritual of inviting your date to prom in a unique, fun, romantic, or intricate way has certainly gained in popularity with each passing year. These promposals have, undoubtedly, become more and more elaborate with each new prom season.

    We've written many blog posts and posted many pictures on our Facebook page of promposals we love, and thought it was time to pick out our top 20 promposals for the season. Check them out below for a comprehensive list of some great promposal ideas! From simple to intricate and funny to romantic, there's a prom proposal idea for everyone. Make sure to read all the way through for our very favorite promposal.

    20\ Chocolate Cake Promposal

    Cake PromposalA promposal can be as simple, yet still romantic, as just taking your date out to a nice dinner, or make dinner yourself, and have the question incorporated into the desert.

    16\ Roses Promposal

    Roses PromposalFor a classic romantic idea, make your date feel like a princess with a bouquet of roses, a princess crown, and a cute message. It's just that easy!

    15\ A Prince Needs His Princess Promposal

    Princess PromposalThis promposal is very similar to the one before it, but we love how they brought the idea to a new level with the cute message, "Every prince needs his princess... will you be mine?" It's definitely a romantic way to ask your date to prom!

    14\ Chicken Nuggets Promposal

    Chicken Nuggets PromposalUsing food for your prom proposal is one of the easiest, light-hearted, cute, and funny ways to pull off the big ask.

    13\ Taco Promposal

    Taco PromposalDoes your date love tacos even more than chicken nuggets? Get a Taco Bell 12 pack, and make a note with the cute message, "Lets 'taco' 'bout prom." It doesn't get much easier than that for a prom proposal! If you know someone who works at a Taco Bell, take this idea to the next level by having the promposal displayed for all to see on the store's signage, like this promposal.

    12\ Pizza Promposal

    Pizza PromposalSeeing a trend yet? Pairing food and a cute message is such an easy and fun way to pull together a promposal. Grab a pizza, or make one yourself like this heart-shaped pizza, and add a cute message like "you've got a pizza my heart" or "I know this is cheesy, but...prom?" for a prom proposal idea that anyone will want to eat up. We're giving this pizza promposal extra props for being in the share of a heart.

    11\ Whale Cookie Cake Promposal

    Whale Cookie Cake PromposalWe're not done with the food or cute slogan promposals yet! Next up is this cute cookie cake promposal. If you're a baker with an artistic mind, this is such a great idea, especially if your date is an animal lover. Show off your baking skills by making a yummy cookie cake, adding the slogan, "Whale you be my prom date?" to the top of it for a cute, fun-loving promposal. We had to make this our favorite food promposal because of the clear passion that went into baking something like this!

    10\ Baseball Promposal

    Baseball PromposalIs your date a big sports player or fan? Find a way to incorporate his or her favorite sport into the promposal. This promposal even found a cute way to incorporate the person's position on the team - the team manager! Top off the cute message with a pretty bouquet of flowers to add a little bit of romance.

    9\ Volleyball Promposal

    Volleyball PromposalFor another sports promposal idea, this volleyball promposal is so creative and sent in from one of our very own Roo Girls! We couldn't be more impressed with the creativity that went into putting this promposal message together.

    8\ Dog Promposal

    Dog PromposalHave a cute pet in your life or in your date's life? Incorporate the lovable creature into your promposal! After all, who can say no to a cute fluffy face like this dog? You can create a cute dog themed promposal with a message like, "Prom would be 'ruff' without you." Most pets can be incorporated into a promposal idea, so don't get stuck if there are no dogs around to help out your mission. Have some fish? Use the message, "Out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to prom with me?" Live on a farm and have a goat? The message could be as easy as "praaaam?"

    7\ Prom Ring Promposal

    Prom Ring PromposalWant a really romantic way to ask your date to prom? Find a pretty ring, and include the message "I prom?se." Not only will they get a promposal to remember, but they'll get a promise ring that they can keep forever.

    6\ Ring Pop Promposal

    Ring Pop PromposalAsk your date to prom with a ring, but keep it light-hearted with a ring pop instead of a real ring! Cute and delicious!

    5\ Harry Potter Promposal

    Harry Potter PromposalIs your date a Harry Potter fan? Find a way to incorporate their favorite book and movie series into the promposal with a cute message like, "I'm seeking a prom date and I think you're a keeper." Your date will think you're super cleaver and pay attention to their interests.

    4\ Makeup Promposal

    Makeup PromposalDoes your date love makeup? Steal their heart with this promposal idea and be the highlight of their prom season and prom night. This promposal is in our top 5 because of how unique and creative it is.

    3\ Guitar Pick Promposal

    Guitar Pick PromposalIf your date is a guitarist, put together a a special promposal with a personalized guitar pick. Not only will they have a memento to remember the special day, but they'll see how much you care about and pay attention to their personal interests.

    2\ Beauty and the Beast Promposal

    Beauty and the Beast PromposalWith the new Disney live action Beauty and the Beast movie released in March, what could be more romantic than a Beauty and the Beast promposal? This idea has become popular long before the initial mention of the movie remake, so there's been many different forms of this promposal through the years. The consistent factor throughout all Beauty and the Beast promposals is using the famous rose. We love the version in the image above, and check out this one for another idea.

    1\ Prince Charming Promposal

    Prince Charming PromposalBeauty and the Beast isn't the only classic Disney movie to pull promposal inspiration from. Channel the classic story of Cinderella by asking your date to prom as Prince Charming. Add some amusement to an otherwise more serious and romantic promposal by presenting your date with sneakers rather than heels. You can even take it a step further by getting customized sneakers through NIKEiD! This Prince Charming Promposal takes our number one spot because it hits every just about every emotion: romantic (who doesn't want to be asked by Prince Charming to prom?), cute (loving those nike shoes!), and funny (you must have a good sense of humor to go so far as to dress up as Prince Charming!).

    However you decide to ask your date to prom, just remember to breathe, relax, and have some fun!

  • Prom Dress Testimonial: Glenisha Fortenberry in Tiffany Designs 46107

    The 2017 Prom Season is only just beginning, but we are excited to see that we are already receiving pictures from our customers looking beautiful in their prom dresses! The latest prom photo comes from Debra Phillips, mom of Glenisha Fortenberry. Debra posted a picture to our Facebook page, and said:

    "Thanks for making my baby's prom come to life with this beautiful dress!! We loved it!!... She goes to Vicksburg High School in VIcksburg Mississippi..this was her senior prom."

    Tiffany Designs 46107

    How fierce does Glenisha look? She rocked her prom dress with such style, with bold fuchsia lips, a matching corsage, and elegant black nails. The prom dress that Glenisha chose is Tiffany Designs 46107, a magnificent mermaid gown that has the perfect balance of glam and classic. The beautiful black lace appliqués on this gown are delicately placed over a sheer overlay that makes for such an exquisite look, especially when paired with makeup like Gelnisha chose!

    While Glenisha chose bold makeup to compliment her dress, she kept the accessories to a minimum in order to let the beautiful lace and jewels on the dress do all of the talking. She finished off her look with gold high heels for just the right amount of added glam.

    Thank you, Debra and Glenisha, for sharing your prom photo with us! We hope you had a wonderful time at your senior prom, Glenisha, and hope you're excited to graduate in a couple of months!

  • Seventeen Style Pro Prom Pick Alert: Sherri Hill 50873

    With the Prom 2017 season officially here, it's certainly time to start hunting for that perfect prom dress ( and shoes and accessories). There are so many choices, though. Where to begin? Lace? Open back? Cut-outs? Which dress designer? With so many new looks and trends becoming popular this season, there are certainly endless possibilities.

    While you can always check right here on our blog for all things prom, from top trends to styling tips, another go-to place is (of course) Seventeen Magazine for always on-point fashion ideas. If you haven't found it yet, they have a whole section dedicated to prom on their website! But, that's not what we're here to talk about today. We've recently teamed up with one of their Seventeen Style Pros, Morgan, to get her pick for the best prom dress of the 2017 season.

    Sherri Hill 50783

    Seventeen Style Pro Morgan chose Sherri Hill style 50873 as her prom 2017 dress of choice, and for obvious reasons - it's beautiful! See her thoughts on the Sherri Hill prom dress below.

    "Loving the freshness of this bohemian inspired Sherri Hill gown (Style 50873) in the newest spring shades of powder blue and blush.  The embroidered bustier-style bodice is great for showing off your figure, while the flowy chiffon skirt, makes it comfortable enough to dance the night away.  Add the matching choker for a touch of drama.  Find this gorgeous dress and so much more at Rissy Roos!"

    XOXO, Morgan

    We love Morgan's pick to get that perfect spring and summer vibe. One of our favorite parts of this look is the matching removable floral choker that comes with the dress. With chokers being so on-trend lately, it's a perfect way to bring the look to prom in a classy way. Morgan certainly knows how to choose a dress with style!

    Whether florals are on your mind, like style 50873, or there are other trends you have your eye on for Prom 2017, head over to our prom section to shop all the latest looks.

  • Sherri Hill 50895 On Stage At The 2017 Oscars

    Last week, we were all about gal celebrities Emma Stone and Jessica Biel at the 2017 Oscars, in their beautiful golden dresses. Of course, they weren't the only gorgeous looks at the Oscars; there were plenty more celebs looking glam from head to toe, from the red carpet to the stage. While we of course loved all of the dresses, we were so stunned to see one of our own prom 2017 dresses hit the Oscars 2017 stage that night!

    Do you know what dress... or what dress designer we're referring to? Hint: it was during Justin Timberlake's performance. Still need some help? It was a Sherri Hill dress!


    One of Justin's dancers rocked Sherri Hills style 50895 during his Oscars performance, showing off that the dress was certainly created for the dance floor. Of course, who wouldn't look good standing next to Justin? But, we're pretty sure it's the dress giving this dancer a gorgeous glow, in this case. We loved that Justin's dancer paired the dress with black strappy heals. We're also loving the red dancer emoji-esque pose that she's pulling off in the above photo ?! Perfection!

    Style 50895 is a bold satin ball gown that features a high illusion plunge neckline, a fitted bodice, and a defined racerback with an exposed zipper and cutouts just above the cinched waistband. It's topped off with a high-low floor-length peplum skirt that adds the perfect amount of volume, and of course flow for the dance floor, with fabric that cascades at the top of the high side-slit, and a short underlay. It's such a unique style that's sure to catch everyone's attention, whether on the Oscars stage or the Prom dance floor (and with or without Justin Timberlake by your side ?).

    To finish off the look with a black strappy heel like this Oscars dancer, check out Mercury by Touch Ups Caged Sandal, Queenie by Touch Ups Sassy Strappy Sandal, or Dale by Touch Ups Jeweled Sandal. You can also check out the rest of our black heels for many other fun choices to pair with Sherri Hill 50895. After you get the dress, shoes, and accessories, all that's left is striking that red dress dancer pose on the dance floor!

  • Emma Stone and Jessica Biel Glowed At The 2017 Oscars

    Jimmy Kimmel certainly made for a hilarious night, hosting the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday, February 26th at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. From surprising a group of tourists by bringing them into the theater to meet their favorite celebrities, to re-creating a famous scene from Lion King, to tweeting the President, to his always spot-on humor, he had us smiling and laughing, a perfect balance to some of the awards winners bringing us to tears with their acceptance speeches.

    While we loved the show, as always, our eyes were glued to the red carpet. The 2017 Oscars had so many gorgeous looks, but there were two celebrity looks in particular that we were obsessing over: Emma Stone and Jessica Biel. They both wore shimmery golden dresses that were reminiscent of the golden oscar award every nominee was hoping to claim as their own. Check out what they wore below and how to get their looks for prom!

    Emma Stone at the 2017 Oscars

    Emma Stone 2017 Oscars

    Actress Emma Stone wore a pretty gold gown with beautiful embroidered details and fringe, reminiscent of dresses from the roaring 1920s. She let the stunning dress speak for itself by keeping the jewelry to a minimum, only accessorizing with a ring and statement earrings. She topped the look off with bold red lips.

    Intrigue by Blush 315

    Get an elegantly patterned look like Emma's Oscar dress with Intrigue by Blush 315, an eccentric gown that's covered in an intricate design of glimmering sequins. The fitted bodice has a sweetheart neckline, just like Emma's dress, and sequined spaghetti straps, which cross-cross over an open back for a totally unique look. The column skirt grazes your curves, giving off a similar silhouette to Emma's Oscars look, then drapes into an elegant train.

    Jessica Biel at the 2017 Oscars

    Jessica Beil Oscars 2017

    Actress Jessica Biel went all-in with gold, rocking a floor-length gown with long sleeves. The beautiful sparkly dress was topped off with a gold purse and gold choker style necklace. because her accessories were as bold as her dress, Jessica kept her makeup simple, with a soft pink lip.

    Primavera 1743

    Sparkle just like Jessica at the Oscars with Primavera style 1743. Style 1743 is a uniquely beaded and sequin floor-length gown that features long sleeves and a train, just like Jessica's dress. Add more gold by pairing with a purse like La Regale RL50011 Mini Mesh Wristlest, or keep the accessories more simple and rock bold makeup and nails like in the photo above.

    A gold dress is certainly a perfect choice for prom if you're looking to feel like a starlet on the prom dance floor. Whether you dress up the look with bold makeup, like Emma, or bold accessories, like Jessica, you'll be shimmering all night long.

  • Jodie Sweetin Looked So Sweet in Sherri Hill on the 2017 People's Choice Awards Red Carpet

    The 43rd People's Choice Awards, which honored the best in popular culture for 2016, was held this past Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The awards show was so much fun to watch, and of course the red carpet was full of fabulous looks!

    While there were so many celebrities in pretty dresses on the 2017 People's Choice Awards red carpet, our eye was on one celeb: Jodie Sweetin. If you don't recognize the name, you'll certainly recognize the character she place on TV. Jodie plays Stephanie Tanner on the sitcoms Full House and Fuller House! Of course, everyone loves Full House. Netflix has brought it back in such style with the new TV show Fuller House, and everyone has fallen in love with Stephanie and DJ Tanner all over again.

    While we love watching Jodie on Fuller House, we couldn't believe how sweet (pun intended) she looked on the People's Choice Awards red carpet! Partly because she always looks so stunning, and partly because she was wearing one of our favorite dress designers: Sherri HillContinue reading
