Quinceaneras have been borrowing ideas from brides for the past decade.
If you’re ever stuck on Quince planning ideas, your best bet is to turn to social media and look up hashtags to find inspiration and make others’ ideas your own.
This time around, we’ve saved you the work and narrow our favorite 10 ‘promposals’ and bridesmaids’ proposals and turned them into something more fitting for you:
Take a look and choose your favorite way to ask your friends to be your damas.
1) Ask your Chicas with these Lovely Dresses!
Request a tiny and shiny replica of your Quince dress or something similar to what they will wear as damas and have them read it. If possible record their reaction and be ready for some to shed tears.

2) Have them Put the Pieces Together!
Invite them over and have them put together a puzzle that once it’s finished will ask the question. Some might be able to decipher the hidden message sooner than others…

3) Invite them to Starbucks Personalized Cups!
Offer to bring them Starbucks and hand them over a personalized cup. Pick from these phrases:
“I can’t do the waltz without you” “Help me pick my Quince dress” “Are you ready for some XV planning?
Then you can orally say: “Will you be my dama?”

4) Do Coffee on a Budget!
If the idea above goes over your budget (Specially if you have more than four damas) perhaps places like Starbucks or the Coffee Bean are still a choice! Although instead of a personalized cup you can ask staff to POP the question by writing on their regular cups prior to calling your future damas’ names.
5) Propose with Hershey’s Kisses!
You could always go the extra mile and place a fancy sticker under dozens of Hershey’s kisses, no better way to get to their heart than with food! Spelling it out is another way to POP the question.

6) Say Something Sweet with Cookies!
Because you can’t go wrong with sugar! A good idea when popping the question is to inmediately chug on the cookie with the “NO” message.

7) You can’t go wrong with pizza!
Following the cookies and chocolate strategy, another cool idea to ask your besties to be part of your special day is with pizza! Something similar to how the bride above propose.
8) Eat until you Find out with Cute Engraved Spoons!
A super creative idea is to have them meet you for ice cream or frozen yogurt. Add the spoon and have them find out what’s the hidden message while they’re eating.

9) Decorate their locker!
Surprise them by leaving the a sweet surprise inside their locker, could be just written text or directions of where you meet you so you can POP the question yourself!
10) Treat them to Alphabet Soup!
Before you panic, cooking alphabet soup is almost as easy as singing ABC’s so YES!! You can definitely consider this as an option.
11) Use their favorite sport as tool!
If your damas or chambelan (es) play a particular sport like baseball, basketball, volleyball, etc., you can POP the question by writing it on
12) Please DONUT say no ☺
Because food proposals are always an easy way to the heart…
13) Gift them a Surprise Balloon!
You’ll need helium, some boxes, balloons, cardboard for the message and ribbon for decoration. The best part of this is that you can get all these items at the 99 Cent Store.
14) Post a story and tag them!
Could be a post like this or even a story on Instagram or Snapchat. As long as you tag them they’ll be able to see it and feel flattered not only to be chosen but to be asked in such a public platform. 😎
15) Write it with Chalkboard
Have the sidewalk be your canvas and POP the question there! You can make it interesting by writing on the exact spot where they take the bus to school or right next to their house. Be creative!
