Hello everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, I am Stephanie Hamilton and I am the Media & Marketing Specialist with My School Dance. Now that the weather is finally dropping and we’re starting to see the stores get ready for holiday mode, that means one thing. We’re getting close to Winter Formal season everyone!
Winter Formal is usually known as a formal dance for high school students held anytime within December-February. This dance is usually known as Turnabout, Winter Formal, or Sadie Hawkins. For many schools, the Winter Formal dance is the dance where the girls are supposed to ask the guys to be their date. When I was in high school, we had a Turnabout dance and I knew how hard it was to come up with a creative way to ask my date. At the time I worked at a pizza place, so I sent my boyfriend a pizza with “TB?” on it made out of pepperoni slices. This idea made sense with where I worked, but a lot of people struggle coming up with ideas so I wanted to provide a few of my favorite types of dance proposals:
However you end up asking your potential date to your school’s Winter Formal dance, go big or go home. Personally, I feel like the dance proposals always set up the mood of how the dance is going to go. You might as well get creative and have fun doing some crazy proposal. For those of you who want more ideas check out My School Dance’s Pinterest Page. We have boards dedicated to strictly Winter Formal or Sadie Hawkins proposals. Also, if your school needs help planning and managing a big event like your formal dance, reach out to My School Dance. There’s no cost for schools to use My School Dance as their dance management platform!
Start figuring out the type of formal proposal you want to do, and get moving now. It may seem early, but a good proposal can take a lot of time!
