Planning an engagement proposal on Christmas this year?
You’ve been dating for a couple years now and you are thinking about asking the big question – but when is the perfect time? According to independentco.com, Xmas eve is the most popular day to get engaged. While one might guess that Valentine’s Day is the occasion when partners are most likely to get down on one knee, it is in fact the fourth most popular day after Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, according to Facebook.
We’re all about sharing the love, so here are a couple cute ideas we found on theknot.com to help you nail that perfect proposal:
1) On New Year’s Eve, sneak away to a romantic spot just before midnight and propose as the perfect start to the new year. Then celebrate with a kiss and plenty of champagne.
2) Surprise your fiancé with a pet you’ve always wanted to get together (bunny, kitten, puppy) under the Christmas tree and tie the ring around its neck. Or substitute a stuffed animal—still cute, but less maintenance!
3) During the holiday season, use outdoor string lights to write out, “Will you marry me?” on the front of your house, apartment or lawn. Station your friends and family secretly inside and come up with an excuse to linger out front. Then have someone flip the switch to reveal the message.
Feeling inspired yet? Now, let’s talk about how you can finance your perfect winter proposal. First, set a budget that includes the price of the ring and whatever else is involved to surprise your loved one on your special day. Next, check to see if what you want is what you can afford.
