Not sure how to ask that special someone to the prom? Here are 50 promposal ideas that anyone ought to say yes too!

Asking someone to the prom isn't as easy as it used to be. People come up with all kinds of wild ideas and honestly, a lot of them are way over-the-top. Promposals, as they are called these days, can be pretty expensive and take forever to plan.

It's also really hard for some people to come up with a unique idea. So for those of you who may not be super creative, here is a list of 50+ ways to ask your significant other to prom.

I've broken it out into categories, so if your sweetheart is a baseball fan, there is something for you. If your crush is a broadway lover, you'll find the perfect way to ask. There's pretty much something for everyone.

Good luck!
