Prom is Saturday and some seniors found a special way to ask their significant other to prom.

The formal definition of the word “promposal” is an elaborate and public proposal to take somebody to a high school prom, modelled on marriage proposals.

Now with prom season here, social media sites are filled with videos of extravagant proposals.

Although promposals are seen as cute and heartwarming, these gestures can be expensive.

The average American household with teenagers spend about $324 just for promposals.
