Prom season has begun as many schools have already hosted their annual proms and Broken Arrow’s prom is just around the corner on April 29. This year, promposals are as prominent as ever with pictures of creative proposals splashed all over social media.

“When you have a date or significant other that is really special, you want to make sure how you ask is original and make them feel as special as they make you feel,” senior Caleb Ricketts said.

Ricketts pulled off one of the most original promposals of the year with the help of some fellow jazz choir students. Ricketts serenaded his girlfriend, senior Becca Wheeler, with the song “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds, a sign that spelled out “prom” and her favorite flowers, sunflowers and daisies.

“I was so incredibly happy when Caleb asked me to prom,” Wheeler said. “I could not stop smiling and I almost cried. I just felt so loved. My face was aching from how wide I was grinning.”

Some students took a different route, enlisting the help of a pet to ask their significant others. Senior Parker Ainsworth tied a sign reading “prom” around his dog’s neck and when his girlfriend, senior Aspen Dixon arrived, she saw the sign and said yes.

“I came up with the promposal when I was at dinner with my family,” Ainsworth said. “We brainstormed, narrowed the choice and made it happen.”

Ainsworth’s dog was the highlight of the promposal according to his date.

“My favorite part of Parker’s promposal was Mia, his dog,” Dixon said. “I walked in and saw Mia under the table and then she ran from me. She ran around the corner and when I came around Parker was holding her and flowers.”

Prom tickets are $40 in the Student Union and prom will be held from 8 to 11 p.m. on April 29 at Spirit Bank Event Center.
