This year’s Weber Formal was held on Sunday, March 25 at the Roswell Historic Cottage. The theme was The French Revolution. Posters around the school advertised the dance with the quote “Let Us Eat Cake.”
Every year, promposals become more elaborate. What began as a simple question (“Will you go to prom with me?”) has turned into buying gifts, decorating bedrooms, and making “punny” posters. Last year, a boy from Findlay, Ohio went as far as to run 5.5 miles in a route that spelled out “Prom?”
As formal season rolled around, Weber students prepared their “formposals.” They made posters with inside jokes or puns, typically relating to whoever was being asked to the dance.
Some hinted at their dates’ names, like in the photos below:
Some people used food as a component of their formposals.
Hobbies are a common poster topic.
Some found other jokes to use to ask their dates this year.
The dance was a success. Roswell Historic Cottage was decorated with lights and chandeliers, and Weber students had a good time dancing with their friends.
