November 5th, 2022

Crafting a Magical Holiday Proposal

The end of the year/beginning of the new year comes with many gatherings of family and friends. This – along with the picturesque fall leaves, fresh snowfall, and sparkling lights – makes it an ideal time to ask your partner to be yours forever. Plan a proposal that is thoughtful, personalized, and immensely meaningful with the help of our experts.

Utilize the Season

Whether you’re planning to propose at the end of fall or the beginning of winter, it’s essential to use the unique characteristics of each season to your advantage. After all, the seasons only come once a year.

For instance, for a fall proposal, you may want to pick a spot in a park where the trees are particularly colorful and make for a phenomenal backdrop for your engagement photos. Or, you could take your partner on a hunt for the perfect Christmas tree and propose amidst the pines.

Consider Their Preferences

One of the most important things to consider when planning your proposal is your partner’s personality and preferences. Are they one that likes the spotlight, or do they prefer quiet, intimate moments?

Customize your proposal to your partner, ensuring they feel especially appreciated, known, and loved by you on this big day. You wouldn’t want to plan a day that either over or underwhelms them or makes them uncomfortable in some way. You know your partner best and have a wealth of information to draw upon to craft the perfect ask.

Plan Around Holiday Events

Our holiday schedules are typically full of shopping, planning, and gatherings. Make sure you give yourself ample time to do everything that needs to be done around the holiday and execute your proposal.

If you’re planning to propose on a holiday, make sure you check in with family and friends attending the gathering to ensure they’re comfortable with your proposal overshadowing the event. Proposing on a holiday is a beautiful idea for those with partners who are particular holiday fanatics.

Enlist the Help of Friends, But Not Too Many

Ensuring your proposal plan goes off without issue can be nearly impossible to do alone, especially if you want to make it particularly surprising for your partner. Enlisting the help of close friends and family is incredibly helpful, especially if you need to ensure your partner is in a particular place at the right time.

However, it is said that loose lips sink ships, so you want to keep your circle of informed folks as small as possible for as long as possible to preserve the surprise. The more people that know, the more chances there are for the surprise to slip.
