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!
