The winter is one of the most romantic times to get engaged. The scenery is beautiful, the holiday season is right around the corner, and it’s a great time to get warm and cozy. If you’re planning a winter proposal, here are some tips to make this special moment even more magical.
Keep It Cozy
The winter is the perfect time to share warmth and love. Even if you’re planning for an outdoor proposal, in the beauty of nature, you can still make it cozy. Bring warm blankets, hot cocoa, candles, and anything else to make the moment warm and wonderful. Curl up by the fire, snuggle close, hold each other tight, and make the moment truly memorable and warm.
The winter is beautiful. From picturesque landscapes to stunning, snow-covered scenery, it’s a beautiful time of year. No matter how you’re planning on proposing this winter, try to involve the beauty of the season in some way. Even if you want to propose indoors, you can still arrange to sit by a window so you can see the snow falling outside. For example, if you want to pop the question at a restaurant, imagine getting a table by the window and having a candlelight dinner while gentle snowflakes twirl in the breeze outside. It’s a perfect setting for a perfect proposal!
Cuddling together by a fire is a perfect way to propose. Cuddling together by a fire while enjoying a wonderful meal or a decadent dessert is even better! Try to involve some of the scrumptious tastes of the season in your proposal.
Have a Soundtrack
Nothing says romance like a beautiful soundtrack. Whether you choose to have some seasonal favorites playing, or a playlist of songs that are meaningful to you two as a couple, having some music playing when you pop the question is a great idea.
Make it Festive
If you’re proposing during the winter, you might want to take advantage of the beauty and excitement of the holiday season while you’re at it. Visit a local Christmas market and spend the day enjoying yourself in the winter splendor before popping the question under some festive twinkling lights.
If you have any special holiday traditions that the two of you enjoy, you can make them even more special this year by popping the question! With all of the lights, warmth, and general merriment of the holiday season, you’ll definitely find the perfect scene for your winter proposal.
You might even want to go all out and have your proposal accompanied by some carolers!
Involve Loved Ones
One of the best parts of the winter is that it's when the holiday season takes place, which means you’ll get to spend more time with your friends and family members. You might want to take this a step further and involve your loved ones in your actual proposal.
If you want to propose at a family event or social gathering, it’s usually a good idea to ask the hosts first. After all, your engagement will definitely be the talk of the evening, so it’s polite in inform your hosts that you’ll be stealing their thunder.
Other people choose to have their family members and friends pop out as a surprise after they’ve proposed. This is a great way to celebrate together with everyone you care about. If you’re going to involve your loved ones, you can even have them take pictures or videos in secret. This will give you a special keepsake that you’ll treasure forever.
The winter, and especially the holiday season, is one of the most popular times of the year to propose and with good reason. It’s certainly a very special, and very beautiful, time to pop the question. Plus, a lot of people have more time off during the holidays than usual, which makes it perfect for celebrating after you get engaged. You might even be able to take some time off to get away together. The extra time together and relaxation will certainly be appreciated, especially since the hustle and bustle of wedding planning is just around the corner!
