Christmas is almost here! This period is for love. December is the most popular month when marriage proposals are made. Especially on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. The coziness, the typical atmosphere, and the company of family create the ultimate moment for a marriage proposal. Thinking of asking your beloved to marry you? We would like to give you some tips on what to do and what not to do when you propose during the holidays!
Make the most of the season
Winter is ideal! Cozying up with the family in front of the stove with a beautiful Christmas tree next to it and, of course, the living room decorated as well. Asking your beloved to marry you at home is definitely an option! This a way to show her that you love her so much. End the day as a family with a cozy Christmas dinner that you have prepared all by yourself. Would you rather take advantage of the snowflakes during the most beautiful time of the year? Then take your loved one outside. Make sure the garden is decorated with colourful lights and get down on your knee there!
Don’t forget the ring
You might now be thinking yes of course not! But the thing is, some may totally forget the ring because they have focused too hard on other things that come with a marriage proposal. This is why it is important to keep the ring in a safe place. When the day arrives, hand it to someone in the family or friends to keep with them until just before the moment you are going to ask her to marry you. When the moment arrives you quickly slip it into your pocket. Ready to pop the question?
Think about the rest of the day
After you pop that special question, you will surely feel like celebrating! You can do this in different ways. You can take your bride-to-be to your favourite restaurant. Have a nice cozy dinner! Or do you prefer to keep it simple at home? Invite your close circle. Provide a few bottles of cava and tasty snacks and fill the room with atmosphere and coziness. Less is more!
Don’t stress too much
Try to enjoy this day a little! Your partner won’t realize anything and, of course, you don’t want to change that by making yourself suspicious because of the stress. Keep yourself calm and build up to the moment you ask her to marry you. This will be such a special moment when you ask her to marry you, your beloved is coming out of the blue!
Be mindful of your partner
Is your loved one not really into being ‘in the spotlight’? Then do the marriage proposal during an intimate moment between the two of you. This could be when you are alone at home, for example. Have 2 glasses of champagne at hand and cozy up by the Christmas tree. Tell her how much you love her and finish by asking that special question! Still, is your partner someone who doesn’t mind when attention is focused on her? Then ask her to marry you on Christmas Eve! All the family will be eyewitnesses to this and never forget the moment!
Don’t wait until the last minute to plan your marriage proposal
When you are planning to ask your partner to marry you, it is important that you have everything arranged perfectly. We certainly don’t recommend randomly asking your partner to marry you on the spot! Get together with family or friends and discuss your plans. They will be happy to guide you and help where necessary. It is better to ask for help than to do it all by yourself. You will then only stress and overlook things!
