I think my high school boyfriend asked me to prom by saying something like, “Hey, want to go to prom?” in the middle of a crowded high school cafeteria. (The answer was “yes” in case you’re wondering).
Kids today are under so much more pressure to pull out all the stops and do something cool (Yikes! I just learned that the average amount of money spent on a so-called promposal ranges from $218-$431(!) with an additional $515 to $738 spent on prom itself. I’m hoping this is per couple at least and thrilled that the Midwest comes in at the lower end of each of those ranges. Thank you Visa and seventeen magazine for those fun facts).
Arizona student Jacob Staudenmaier has topped them all with his prom invitation that recreates the opening sequence of La La Land (which sadly, I cannot get to copy into this post so you’ll have to click through to indiewire to watch). I’m guessing that Jacob topped the averages listed above, but when your target date is Emma Stone, I guess you pull out all the stops.
