3 Magical Holiday Proposal Ideas

Modern Couples Guide to Proposing




When it comes to romance, it is hard to top the magical ambiance of the holiday season. The chilly weather, cozy fires, festive decorations and fun traditions seem to bring out the romantic comedy fanatics in all of us, and for that reason, it is an ideal time of year for a wedding proposal. Here is some creative inspiration to help you plan your big moment.

Sweet & Simple Holiday Proposal Ideas


1. Getaway for Two

The holidays can get hectic quickly – with family events, work parties, shopping for gifts and so on – so set aside a weekend in November or December just for the two of you to get away from it all. Take a mini vacation at a hotel or B&B an hour or two away, or plan a staycation where you turn off your cell phones and pretend to be tourists in your own town. Sleep late, eat great meals, see the local sights and enjoy time together as a couple. Pop the question over a cozy dinner, on a walk or any time you are both feeling relaxed and happy. You’ll be able to celebrate with your loved ones afterward over the holidays, but you’ll always appreciate this time just the two of you.

2. Snow Write

If you live in a snowy climate, one of the simplest and most romantic holiday proposal ideas is to take advantage of this winter wonderland. You’ll have to be flexible in the day that you propose, but if you plan in advance – browsing women’s engagement rings to find the perfect one, keeping an eye on the weather a few days at a time, enlisting help if you need it – it should be easy to pull off. Find a backyard, a field or another quiet place unlikely to be disturbed and spell out, “Will you marry me?” in something that stands out against the white snow – for example, red rose petals or dark branches. Have a friend stand guard while you find an excuse to bundle up and take your sweetheart on a snowy walk. Have the ring ready and celebrate over hot cocoa or wine with friends and family.

3. New Year’s Magic

Celebrate the start of a new year as an engaged couple. Put together a small memory box of your time together – photos, mementos, inside jokes, gifts, etc. – and give it to her on New Year’s Eve with a letter telling her how much you love her and want her to be a part of your future. Ask her to marry you, and have the champagne ready to toast to an exciting start to the new year.
