Asking a date to Prom ?

The Magic of Prom Starts With Finding A Date

Each year for over a hundred years, high school prom (shorthand for the promenade held at the beginning of a formal ball) has been an important coming of age event in American culture. While social etiquette has changed quite a bit in that time, one thing hasn’t, prom dates are still an important yet intimidating part of the experience. Finding yourself one does not have to be hard or overwhelming and asking a date to prom should be fun and not scary.

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to ask our collective crushes to prom. This is probably the worst thing we can do. We imagine all the possibilities ahead of us, ignoring the reality that we are these amazing unique individuals who are worthy of having a date that is into us. Focusing on asking someone you find intimidating to such an event can often make the task seem downright scary. Prom is all about having fun while learning the formalities associated with high-society. Your date should be someone you know you’ll have a good time with, someone you want to make memories with. Most likely you’re looking to ask someone you either enjoy being around or hope to get closer to.

As an initiation into the adult world of semi-formal occasions, it is often our first experience in choosing a date, formal wear, flowers, and ride. Just like other formal events such as weddings, the planning that goes into being prepared for prom night takes time. Therefore, the most important step in asking your prom date to go with you is ask early in the season. The main thing preventing dream prom dates is simply waiting too long to ask.

Most people are flattered by being asked to prom, whether they see any romantic interest or not. The worst-case scenario is they say no and you’re free to ask someone else. However, they may accept and propose you go as friends. Wait too long and they may have already accepted a date that they maybe aren’t as happy about. Don’t be intimidated by and compare yourself to others. Being your genuine self is an important aspect of asking someone on a date. If they say no, it only means you’re not compatible at the moment, not that there is anything wrong with you.

Most people might find it intimidating to talk to their prom date face to face. Relationships should always be handled face to face. However, prom dates aren’t relationships. They are a date to a single event. Dates can be initiated with a handwritten letter, card, or even text. The best part about asking a date to prom is even if they say no you can still attend with a good friend or group of friends. In fact, prom is best enjoyed with the people you spend the rest of your time with. Take someone that is there for you when you are hurt and those that cheer you on. No prom date is complete without friends to share the night with.

Ladies and gentlemen, get out there! The most important part of prom is having a good time and learning how to navigate the planning of a semi-formal affair. Whether you go as a group or with a date, as long as you take the opportunity to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime evening you’ve done it right. Once you have a Prom date or not Rose Tuxedo can help you pick out a Tuxedo or Prom Suit that will make you look and feel good at a great price, more money for you to enjoy dinner and pictures that night. 3 locations to suit you, Phoenix Tuxedos and Mesa Tuxedos.

Getting (And Keeping) A Prom Date

Tags : 

mw discountSometimes the hardest part about getting ready for prom is acquiring a date. If you’re a lucky fella with a lovely girlfriend who you’ll still stand by in May or June you’ve got it easy. But for those unlucky guys without a guaranteed date it can be tough to get (and keep) a prom date.

Don’t wait until the week or prom to start asking girls—many of them will already have a date or assume they were your last choice—so start deciding and asking once the date has been announced (or a month in advance, at least).

  1. Look the part when you ask her: Put on your best pair of jeans and a nice sweater or shirt—don’t ask her when you’ve just gotten out of gym and are still wearing your gross PE trainers. This isn’t a wedding proposal, but you can still make it special. Prom is a big deal to young girls.
  2. Let her pick the color: Find out ASAP what color her dress will be so you can find a way to match. It may sound dumb because you don’t see a problem with wearing a classic black and white tux outfit, but matching may be important to her. It’s a nice way to tell people you came together as part of a plan, not that you just met up at the dance and happened to be dancing together or hanging out. You can go simple with a matching tie or pocket square, or bolder with a matching jacket, cummerbund, or shirt. Rose Tuxedo offers all of the popular colors found in prom dresses in various pieces of suits and tuxedos.

  3. Be on time: Do not pick her up late. This is Prom suicide. She’ll be angry with you the entire time. Show up early. It shows you’re excited.
  4. Pick somewhere nice for dinner: You’ll be in a suit or a tuxedo so don’t try to pass off McDonalds as a fancy meal. This isn’t to say you need to go to a 5 star Italian restaurant, but at least spring for a decent chain restaurant.
  5. Don’t be afraid to ask her to go dutch: If you and your date aren’t a couple, it wouldn’t hurt to ask if she’d be willing to pitch in for the limousine (or town car) or dinner. You pay for your outfit, she pays for hers, so it’s only fair that you both pay for everything else together.
  6. Have fun: No matter who you go with or where you go beforehand, have fun at prom. Be safe, make sane decisions, but have fun. Dance with your friends, don’t get jealous if someone else wants to dance with your date (it’s just a dance, after all) and don’t feel as if you must spend the entire evening just with your date. It’s your night too and you both have friends outside of each other. Make this a night to remember and look amazing while you’re at it with a little help from Rose Tuxedo.
