There's something about cold weather that makes us want to get together. The holiday spirit is contagious, which makes it an ideal time for wedding proposals. The atmosphere is prime for love, unions, and festivities. Before you plan the wedding, you must set aside time to prepare the proposal.
The proposal sets the tone for the eternity you'll be spending together; best to make it memorable and exciting. Something you can both look back on with nostalgia and joy. Here are some things to keep in mind as you plan your holiday proposal.
Select the Right Ring!
Undeniably, the most crucial decision for some. Your engagement and wedding rings represent a timeless symbol of your union. As such, you should make sure to set out enough time for browsing and comparing different ring styles and metals. Platinum or white gold? Diamond studded or plain? There are many decisions to make, so make sure you've set aside enough time to go over your options.
Pick a Day and Clear Your Schedule
The holidays are busy. Your proposal may be on the top of your mind, but your partner likely has gatherings to attend and family to visit. There's already a lot of competition between events this time of year. Do not overwhelm yourself or your partner by trying to squeeze in your proposal minutes before a family dinner or outing. Make it a special event in itself, and every event deserves to have it’s own time and place to make the memory special forever.
The Winter Getaway Proposal
In terms of romance, winter is the best time to make use of the elements. Immaculate, snowy peaks make us weak in the knees. There's something about the silent serenity of snow falling that melts the heart. Parts of the Western United States, Canada, Iceland, and Austria are full of idyllic backdrops to make your proposal memorable.
If the mountains are out of the question, consider another winter activity like ice skating or perusing holiday lights and decorations to romanticize the atmosphere.
Disney is known for making our lives magical. It has cultivated an aura of romanticism that's hard to find elsewhere. Take your pick in terms of scenery: before a chapel, under a pavilion, in a castle garden, or upon a steeple. Options are endless when deciding where to pop the question. Let's not forget the horse-drawn carriages and moonlit cruises. There's a myriad of ways to propose at Disney.
Propose on a Yacht
A yacht is an excellent option for those proposing in tropical climates. Warm weather can be just as romantic as snowfall, especially if you're cruising the open sea with eyes on the horizon.
Time of day can be crucial here. Sunrise and sunset are exceptionally romantic. Though, the latter may be a wiser option if your partner isn't much of a morning person. Grogginess and romance rarely mix. Furnish the yacht for the occasion. Festive lights, floral arrangements, and champagne can turn a plain boat into a cinematic getaway.
Do Not Wait Until the Last Minute to Plan
We cannot reiterate enough the importance of planning. A proposal isn't something you rush into. If you want it to be memorable and appreciated, you have to plan and prepare, especially during the holidays when events are endless, and venues are limited. Also, if you want photographs to better illustrate the memory, booking a photographer or videographer early is important to compete with during the holiday season. If you have friends or family that are photographers, now would probably be the time to call them and schedule their help with your big moment.
