Promposals

What is a promposal you ask? A promposal is by definition an elaborate and public proposal to take somebody to a high school prom. Every year the boys get more creative, some will tug at your heart strings and others will have you laughing. Either way it is just amazing that they are thinking outside the box in stead of the typical "Will you go to prom?", they are giving us elaborate performances! Whats even better is that there are even a few celebrity promposals as well. Make sure you sign up for out newsletter, maybe your promposal will make Roo's News too!
  • A Promposal Car in front of Rissy Roo's!

    We were so excited this week to see a promposal...right in the parking lot of our store at Rissy Roo's in Linwood, NJ! Highschooler Tyler had the creative idea to make his date's car into her prom proposal by using car paint to write the promposal on her windshield. The promposal said:

    "Will you go to Prom with me?

    --  Yes!  --  No  --  (Choose 1)  -- Love, Tyler."

    Car Promposal

    We especially loved all of the cute hearts that were drawn all around the windshielf! The lucky date clearly said YES, since the "Yes!" was circled on the car, and she's now already at Rissy Roo's picking out a dress!

    If you're still trying to find a cute way to ask your date to prom (whether you're the guy or the girl), this is a really easy and fun way to do it. It will definitely help to keep any feeling of pressure or anxiety to a minimum! Plus, once the date says "yes," they'll get to show off the promposal to all of their friends for weeks to come, which is always fun. If you want other great prom proposal ideas, just search for keyword "promposal" on our blog, or click here for our promposal blog posts (there's even promposals with celebs Bryan Cranston, Miley Cyrus, and Dwyane Wade!). And, of course, if you're still searching for that perfect prom dress, get searching on RissyRoos.com - it's not too late, and we're definitely here to help!

    Congrats on getting your date with your promposal car idea, Tyler! We hope you two have an amazing time at Prom this year!

  • Bryan Cranston Helps a Fan Get a Date to Prom

    The Miley Cyrus promposal has been topping our charts as the best prom proposal of 2014, but we may have just discovered a new favorite! Recently, Breaking Bad fan Stefan Montana ran into actor Bryan Cranston on the streets and asked Bryan to help him with his promposal. Of course, the awesome Bryan obliged to help...in the most badass Breaking Bad way possible! Check out the Bryan Cranston promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/u408FzkwW98

    The title of the YouTube video is called "Bryan Cranston Got Me a Date to Prom!" so we can happily assume that Maddie gave a resounding "YES!" Of course, how could you say "no," to "the one who knocks" to begin with? Way too scary! If Maddie did give a "no" to the promposal, her best course of action definitely would be to tread lightly!

    We love how ecstatic both Stefan and Bryan are towards the end of the promposal - they both seemed like they had a lot of fun with it! It's definitely always exciting to see a TV star as big as Bryan Cranston having fun with his fans. And, of course, with the Breaking Bad TV show finally over, it was nice to get a little taste of Walter White back in action. You're a lucky girl, Maddie, for getting such a unique promposal from your date (and from a celebrity)! We hope the two of you have a wonderful time at prom!

    What did you think of the Bryan Cranston promposal? Do you wish you could get a celebrity in on your prompsal? We sure do! Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked for opportunities!

Over the course of a week, our Roo Girls showed us such fun, quirky and totally creative ideas for a promposal...from easy ideas to incredibly elaborate...and only 1 winner was chosen as the Ultimate Roo Promposal on March 28th.

    That Ultimate Promposal was the so silly (and romantic!) prom proposal from George to his girlfriend Emily that you see above! We were so blown away by George's creative and so funny...and of course, very bold...idea! Congrats, Emily (and George)!

    While Emily's promposal was our winner, we had so many great ideas come in that we wanted to share them all with you. Check them out below. With Prom 2014 getting closer and closer, we hope they give you some ideas for your own prom proposal!

    Promposal Contest Entries

    balloons promposal

    The promposal that started it all! We saw this prom proposal idea that Missy posted of her son asking his girlfriend to prom with lots and lots of balloons and immediately fell in love and decided to go on a search for the Ultimate Promposal! Of course, we gave Missy's son a $50 gift certificate to give to his date to sweeten the deal. In case you were wondering, she said yes!

    Promposal-SwedishFish

    This promposal from Jennifer was super sweet! Two ways to use the 'fish' idea in a promposal - "out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to prom with me?" and "You are the Swedish Fish in the Sea." Both so cute!

    We even had a video promposal! Taylor sent this video in of her boyfriend, Spencer, asking her to prom in the middle of a huge audience at a basketball game. That definitely takes a lot of guts - cudos to you, Spencer!

    phone promposal

    Sarah entered this creative prom proposal that was created on her iphone with app icons! For those that don't want to do something too over the top, this is a super easy idea, while still being able to show your creativity.

    friends promposal

    Heather submitted this picture of her boyfriend, Taj, getting his friends involved for her promposal. What great friends!

    These are all such great promposal ideas - thank you to all of our Roo Girls who entered the contest and shared their prom proposals with us! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay tuned for more contests to come soon!

  • Promposals for Him: What Type of Promposal Girl are You?

    With prom on the way, we are all super busy trying to find the prom dress and accessories of our dreams to ensure our night is perfect! Not to mention the organizing of plans and parties, we are exploring with hairstyles and makeup trends to figure out what kind of prom look we want. With all the shopping and searching and planning, we may have overlooked one minor detail...what about a date? If you haven't been asked yet, don't fret as there is still plenty of time for your dream guy to ask you. However, it's totally okay to take matters into your own hands and ask your crush or friend first! There are countless ways to go about asking someone to prom, so to get your creative juices flowing, below are two ways to go around 'promposals for him' - a more simple way, as well as a bolder approach. What kind of promposal girl would you be?

    Simple Promposal Approach

    Whether coming from the guy or the girl, prom proposals are all about exploring your creative side and putting some extra thought into a clever way to ask your potential date. With that said, it doesn't mean that it has to be done in an over-the-top way. For a simple promposal idea, try incorporating something you know the other person likes or is interested in to show how much you care. We love this cute idea of "winging" the promposal with some chicken wings! First of all, what guy doesn't like wings?? And, secondly, it's a cute way to remind the person that you're asking that you are doing something sincere that you've never done before, and will hopefully be a reminder for him to be sincere with a response in return!

    Bold Promposal Approach

    If you're a "go big or go home" type of girl, you may want to do something a little more bold for your promposal. Whether you just want a cute way to ask your boyfriend to prom, or you're on a mission to prove how much this your potential date MUST go to prom with you, or it just seems like something fun to do, a bold promposal can seem scary, but also very rewarding! Bolder, bigger ideas can also be fun ways to have friends aid you in the process! With all of the snow that's been coming down this weekend, we thought the below idea of carving our "PROM?" in the snow was such a cute idea! This one's bold in the sense that it's BIG, but it's super fun, which helps to take any scariness out of the idea.

    Snowy Promposal Idea

    Whatever promposal idea or approach you decide to take, and whatever the outcome ends up being, just remember to have fun! Just like Prom Night, your promosal will be one that you'll remember forever, so make it special and keep it light-hearted. And, if you have any ideas of your own to share, leave us a comment below!

  • Promposal from our Roo Customer Shelby!

    One of our Rissy Roo's customers recently sent us pictures of her own daughter's promposal! Jessica, the mom of Shelby Thornton, saw that we've been posting cute promposal ideas to our Facebook wall and wanted to join in on the fun.

    Listen up ladies, because Shelby was the one doing the prom proposal to her boyfriend, not the other way around! There's definitely nothing wrong with the girl taking the initiative and asking the guy to prom, and Shelby's idea was such a cute way of doing it. Thinking of a funny or cheesy promposal can help lighten the mood for something that can be a little scary. Check out Shelby's idea below for inspiration!

    "My daughter Shelby Thornton (a high school senior in Texas) asked her boyfriend (a junior) to prom.  I noticed you post pics of cute ideas and thought this might make your list.  Thank you."

    - Jessica Thornton (Shelby's mom)

    The bouquet of lollipops is so cute. What a great idea - you definitely can't say no to candy! Thanks for sending the pictures in, Jessica and Shelby. We hope your prom was amazing (and didn't "suck")!
