20 Unbe-leaf-ably Cute Texts To Ask Someone To Be Your Fall Formal Date

by Christy Piña

It's the most gourd-geous time of the year. The temperatures are cool enough to wear your cute new sweaters, but not so cold you need to wear four layers, gloves, a beanie, and a wool scarf. Everything smells like sweet cinnamon and pumpkin spice, the leaves are changing from their typical greens to oranges, yellows, and reds, and there are all sorts of events happening: fall festivals, apple picking, pumpkin patches, and of course, fall formals. With #formalszn approaching, you might be trying to brainstorm some texts to ask someone to be your fall formal date, in true autumn fashion. You've given the "Who should I take to formal?" question way too much time in your brain for the past semester, and now that you've settled on an answer, it's time to actually work up the courage to ask. You're excited for formal, pumped at the idea of having a great time with your might-be date, and already looking forward to your cute outfit. But first, they have to say yes.

The fact of the matter is, going up to someone and asking them to be your date to formal can be really hard. It's nerve-wracking sometimes! Thankfully, a simple text to the cutie you've had your eye on can be easier than approaching them IRL, and there's nothing wrong with that. If it's easier on you than asking IRL, text away! Here are 20 cute, punny texts you can send to your possible fall formal date.

1. Hay there, boo-tiful! I feel like you'd be a great fall formal date. Want to come with?
