As if over the top Prom Send Off parties weren’t enough, now the over the top Promposal is a thing. What this means for some parents and students can only be imagined. And we all know kids can have wild imaginations. It seems today that everyone wants his or her ask to go viral, and many will go to great lengths to get attention. Far from the good old days when a guy shyly asked a girl with a simple note, or dropped hints until she got the drift, today, asking for one to agree to be a prom date is negotiated with the finesse of a non-binding agreement. “Student A agrees to pay all costs associated with limousine service. Student B will refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages after midnight.” Promposals are orchestrated, choreographed, videoed, and thrust into the social media stratosphere hoping to land among the stars. Literally, more A listers in Hollywood are getting asked to be prom dates than the local County Fair Queen. This time of year, you can bet there will be heartwarming stories of the oddest couples standing before paper moons, getting their picture taken.
And when they finally get there, you can believe they will have spent a good deal of cash to flash those bright smiles. On average, today’s prom preparations can cost upwards of a thousand dollars for her alone. Clearly, they haven’t shopped at JC Penney’s. if they had, they would have found great deals on clothes, shoes, make up, and jewelry, all the things that make the night special.
