The holiday season is undeniably romantic. It is full of crackling fires, twinkling lights, and ribbons of red. While some of us are busy wrapping brown paper packages in string, others are busy planning a holiday proposal. If you are planning to drop the big question this holiday season, we have some hints for you on how to do so successfully.
Set Aside Alone Time
The holiday season is packed with parties and obligations. We set a lot of time aside for our loved ones during the holiday season. However, it can make it difficult to get some time alone with our significant other. If your girlfriend absolutely loves being around friends and family, a proposal at a holiday party could be ideal. However, if your girlfriend is someone that is relatively shy, she might prefer the proposal to be private. Without giving it away, see if you can figure out what setting she would prefer by asking a close friend or family member. Regardless of which she would prefer, it is vital to have some alone time after you pop the question. You are going to want to hold one another and take it all in.
Use Surrounding Scenery
During the holiday season, streets are packed with beautiful lights and trees with extravagant decorations. Most cities and towns decorate for the holiday season with wreathes, lights, and much more. These streets are a perfect picture background for a proposal. When thinking of a location that you might want to propose, think of what might make for a good picture. If you plan on having a photographer present, ask them what they might suggest. Whether you choose a private park setting or a bustling street lined with lights, you must consider your location when planning a holiday proposal. Location can really work to your advantage during the holiday season.
Consider the Weather
Although California rarely faces severe weather in the winter months, a large portion of the United States does. If one of you is traveling to the other for the holiday season from a different state, you must consider the weather when planning. Some states face severe winter weather with relentless snowstorms. Planes are often delayed in the winter months. If you are planning a holiday proposal and one of you is traveling to the other, make sure you follow the weather predictions. If you plan to propose at a restaurant that you have booked a reservation with and one of you can’t get there, you’ll have to have an alternative plan.
When planning a holiday proposal or a proposal for any time of the year, it is important to remember that the two of you and the love you share should be the focus. Plan something that you are sure will be special for both of you and it will be unforgettable.
