  • Creative Promposal Ideas

    There's many ways to ask someone to prom (called a promposal!) - you can keep it simple and go with a straightforward invitation, or you can get as creative as your mind lets you! Whether you're a girl asking the guy to prom, or waiting for the guy to ask you, it's always fun to find a creative, unique way to do it. After all, it's a special night and one you'll never forget, so there's nothing wrong with making the invitation special, too!

    We've been especially loving searching Pinterest for all of the cute ways people are being asked to prom. Below are some of our favorites - we hope they give you some great ideas of your own!

    Simple

    If you want to keep your promposal simple, there's still plenty of creative ways that you can ask the question. We love the idea of getting a Starbucks barista to write "Prom?" on a specially made drink for your sweetheart. It's so simple, but will be sure to take your date by surprise and put a big smile on his or her face. The icing on the cake to asking your date with this method is to make sure you order his or her favorite drink.

    Another simple and cute way to ask someone to prom is with a teddy bear, of course! Because, who doesn't love teddy bears? A cute thing to do to add a personal touch could be to spray the bear with your perfume or cologne; this way, the bear will smell like you.

    Romantic

    Looking for a romantic way to ask someone to prom? We love the idea of asking on a ferris wheel - it will feel like the movies!

    Another super romantic way to get asked to prom is with lots and lots of roses, of course! We love this photo of a boyfriend asking his girlfriend to prom by spelling out "Prom?" on her bed with rose pedals.

    Super Sweet

    For a super sweet promposal, you can't go wrong with...sweets! Find a unique and fun way to pop the question with cookies, cupcakes, or chocolate, and you'll be sure to have a sweet, sweet evening.

    We love the idea of getting custom M&M's that say "Prom?" on them! It really shows that the person put a lot of time and effort into the idea. After all, they have to be specially ordered from M&M's.

    If you love baking, put your skills to work and make your own sweets for your promposal. We love how creative these cookies are - you choose the cookie that displays your answer. (How couldn't you say "heck yes!"??)

    Fun and Cheesy

    Finding a funny way to ask your date to prom can help to lighten to mood for something that can seem serious and a little scary. Coming up with a cute slogan like, "Out of all the fish in the sea, will you go to prom with me?" will lighten the mood in an instant and have you both giving a good chuckle. And of course, how could you say "no" to a new little fishy friend? Just make sure to take care of it.

    When we say cheesy, we mean cheesy! We thought this idea was just too cute, and for sure gave us a good laugh. It's definitely a fun...and delicious...way to ask your date to prom. If you're a girl looking for cute ways to ask a guy to prom, they always say the best way to a man's heart through his stomach.

    Personal and Meaningful

    If you are in a relationship with the person you want to ask to prom, it's always a good choice to find a more meaningful way to ask the question. Since you are in a committed relationship with the person, you already know that you can expect a resounding "yes" to your promposal, so you can really pull out all the stops without being afraid! Especially for the seniors, this is probably your last big event of the year with your significant other, so make it special.

    The Disney movie "UP" is both a sad and happy movie about a widower, so we loved seeing how a boyfriend found a creative way to incorporate the movie into his promposal.

    Balloons 400x400

    It hands down doesn't get much cuter than asking someone to prom with a kitty! But, we put this in the "Personal and Meaningful" section because this is not something you want to do without knowing that the person you are giving the cat to can take care of the animal. You should talk to your date and his or her family ahead of time to make sure that they are ready, willing, and able to take care of the kitty as their new family pet.

  • Rissy Roo's Prom Dress Testimonial: Ashton Boyd

    We recently received such a sweet e-mail from one of our customers that we just can't get over! Daphne Boyd, mother of Ashton, sent us such a detailed message of her experience at Rissy Roo's, and we are just so happy to hear that she got everything that she was looking for! We don't want to do much explaining of Daphne's note, as it definitely speaks for itself - read on below, and check out how gorgeous her daughter, Ashton, looked in her dress!

    "I have so many wonderful things to say about your company. I'd like to begin with the first phone call I made to your company.  I had been looking all over California for a very specific La Femme evening gown. 18914 that number will forever be in my mind. I found you on the web and decided to call.  Frustrated with all the California neglect.  Your customer service was amazing.  Kind and patient and very knowledgable.  You had the dress.  I was so excited.  Then she told me it would be about 8 or 9 days to get the dress to Cali.  My heart sank that would be cutting it very close especially with alterations.  Then the young lady said the most amazing thing... She said well wait we have a warehouse in California and it can be to you in 4 days for $25.  I about fell off the couch.  Lets do it. I wish that I had found you Freshman year! We have one more year in high school and I can guarantee that I will be purchasing all her dresses next year from you!  And I have been telling all my Cali friends about how great Rissy Roos is. My daughter looked beautiful and she stood out and looked far different from all the same prom dresses that everybody wore. Thank you again."

  • 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."

  • Ways to get Perfect Prom Skin

    Prom is approaching fast and with the school year coming to an end, everything is piling up and we're sure you're overwhelmed with stress. Unfortunately, stress comes with an unwelcomed guest...zits! Before you start panicking and trying a million types of cleansers and creams, why not try to avoid mother nature and end it before it starts?

    Many people don't realize it all starts from the inside. What you eat shows on your skin, and your skin needs vital nutrients to keep it healthy and clear. You're only weeks away from prom so let's get started now! Below are some of the best foods to eat to have immaculate skin. Follow these suggestions and you'll be the most confident person on the dance floor!

    Water

    Woman Drinking Glass of Water

    We put water first for a reason..it's the most important! Drinking 8-10 cups a day is a healthy amount to keep in mind. Just making a simple switch from sugary soda to water can do wonders! By flushing out all those toxins out of your body, it'll help accelerate the healing process of any current blemishes and help prevent new ones.

    Fish (Omega 3s)

    Eating fish is awesome for your skin! Fatty fishes like salmon are loaded with Omega 3s and they're anti-inflammatory. Once or twice a week should do the trick.

    fish oil

    Not a big fan of fish? There are other ways to get Omega 3s like walnuts, beans, fish oil pills, and flax-seed oil. Fish oil pills are also great to take as part of your work out plan.

    Whole Grains

    Fiber-packed whole grains work like a charm! Whole grain carries a lot of antioxidants. Highly-processed grains like white bread don't carry the antioxidants that helps fight acne. Be careful picking "Whole Grain" foods. Look for the nutrition label and make sure it's low in sugar and high in fiber. Some packaging labels can be misleading.

    Lots of Green Veggies

    Vegetables Face

    Leafy greens contain lots of fiber and antioxidants, as well. All the nutrients you need to have a healthy glow to your skin. Maybe it's time to start listening to mom and start eating those veggies!

    Green Tea (Antioxidants)

    Another easy way to get antioxidants is just by drinking green tea! Besides all the health benefits from green tea, it helps prevent pimples. It's an anti-inflammatory. But, beware of the sugary bottled green tea!

  • Prom Trend of the Week: Look Electric in Neon

    Even though pastels are so in lately, neon has been holding strong for a while now and it certainly doesn't plan on going anywhere any time soon. As soon as the warmer weather starts rolling in, we can't help but want to put more colors on...and the brighter, the better!

    Prom is certainly the best time to show off your individuality, but it can still be hard to stand out in the crowd with all of the beautiful dresses that the other girls will be wearing. Neon is a great way to be the star of prom, and show off  how on-trend you are at the same time! When it comes to wearing Neon, you just want to make sure you do so in a way that doesn't leave you looking like a walking highlighter. Continue reading

  • Dress of the Week: Faviana 6711 Taylor Swift Dress

    Taylor Swift has worn many beautiful dresses, but one of our all-time favorites is still the silver sequined number she wore to the 42nd Annual Country Music Awards in Nashville in 2008. The gown was perfectly form-fitting to her figure, and the beautiful silver sparkles had her shining all night!

    Faviana 6711 Taylor Swift inspired dressFor those that love the celebrity styles and want to rock them for prom, it can be difficult to find a similar look sometimes. But this year, worry not! Faviana made a dress that's just like Taylor Swift's 42nd CMAs dress - Faviana style 6711! Inspired by Taylor's dress, it's a sequin evening gown with mesh straps. The best part about it, though, is if you loved Taylor's look, but rather wear it in a different color, Faviana made the dress in six different hues: Royal, Hunter Green, Lipstick, Silver, White, and Black. Check out some of the colors below, and you can click the pictures or the link above to see the rest of the shades.
