Most people propose to their loved ones during events like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or birthdays among others. When holidays are around the corner, so many engagement announcements are made. However, there’s something so loving and passionate about proposing over the holidays, that’s why if you think about popping up the question to her, here are some of the most critical holiday proposal tips for the yes girl.
- The moment should be extra romantic
Does your girl have a favorite holiday memory? If yes, bring back that favorite holiday memory, make a special dinner for her on her memorable day of life then propose to her at that time. Tapping into such a warm, lovely memory will make the moment even more romantic and memorable.
- Start a new tradition together
A good instance, in this case, is going hunting for Christmas tree together with your beloved then plan a somehow dreamy set-up with lights and a holiday picnic with hot cocoa and self-serving blankets. Take along a customized ornament showing the date to announce the proposal, giving it an extra touch. Then as a memory, you can pick out a new ornament as a couple and add to your collection every year.
- Make the most of holiday activities and traditions
Her favorite Christmas activities are the best moment to propose. Taking her out for a date on such occasion is a perfect way for her enjoy herself, at the same time, she would not suspect that anything is going on or that you are planning anything. Ice skating, chopping down trees and gingerbread house competitions are a super dynamic way to propose without your beloved catching on ahead of time.
Other tips to consider when proposing to your beloved girl
Make it thoughtful – Maybe you are feeling the pressure, but you still can make it personalized and thoughtful just for her with comfort. Pick three things she loves the most, for instance, a favorite Christmas tradition, favorite flower, and the most preferred holiday movie. Incorporate these into your proposal in some way. You can consider the smallest details because they sometimes speak the loudest.
Include friends and family member – During Christmas time it is common to be surrounded by your loved ones, so it would be perfect if she’s around to her family. However, it would be best to have them included in the proposal. Such a moment would be so memorable; everyone would be delighted to be a part of the occasion.
Do not be carried away with the eggnog – This applies to all proposals whether holidays or any other time. Don’t use any alcoholic drinks whether the nerves are getting the best of you, or you’re having a little too much fun. Let alcohol or wine be used in the post-proposal celebration. Keep in mind slurring the words and bobbing on one knee cannot guarantee you a “YES!”
Don’t propose on the actual holiday – Although Christmas season is warm and cozy, the day can be so demanding and stressful especially if there are many places visit and lots of things to do. Again, such holidays are more than just your engagement, and it would not be fair to take the attention all for yourself when all the family members are visiting.
