Love might be in the air during the spring, but there’s nothing quite like a holiday engagement proposal. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of snowy vistas and trees decked out in lights, an end-of-year engagement offers magic and romance in one perfect package. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Bustle reports a full 40 percent of engagements occur between November and February.
Thinking of popping this question during the coming holiday season? From finding the right bridal jewelry to planning the event itself, find out how to create a holiday engagement proposal that’s second to none.
Making a Proposal Memorable
From flash mobs to skywriters, big proposals are all the rage these days. Regardless of how you opt to pop the question, the first step is often choosing a date. Maybe you want to propose on your sweetheart’s birthday to make the date extra exceptional. Or perhaps you’d rather get engaged on a family holiday when all your loved ones are gathered together. While your proposal will likely be perfect no matter what day you choose, there’s something extra special about offering up a beautiful engagement ring on a day that’s already associated with specialness.
A Month Full of Holidays
In particular, December is a popular time for lovers to pledge to spend their futures together. This month is packed with memorable occasions, including Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, so there are plenty of special moments from which to choose. As a bonus, the lights and decor provide the perfect background for all those smiling photos you’re sure to take after the big moment.
If you do decide to get engaged around a big holiday, don’t let the events of the day overshadow your private moment of happiness. After you have a big dinner with family or a toast with friends, take time out for the two of you to celebrate your love alone. You could go for a romantic walk in the snow or cuddle up in front of a fire in each other’s arms.
Finding the Right Ring for Your Holiday Engagement
Regardless of when you choose to pop the question, you’ll likely want to choose a ring that celebrates your enthusiasm for your special someone. Fortunately, today’s engagement rings come in a wide array of designs.
Want a ring that’s big and beautiful to pair with the glittering tinsel and colored ornaments on the Christmas tree? Consider the expertly crafted pieces by Michael M.
