Why Christmas is a Magical Time to Propose

Christmas Proposal
The winter holiday season is the most romantic time of the year to propose, with an extra magical sparkle that adds a layer of additional atmosphere both outdoors and indoors.

The dark evenings and longer nights give a feeling of extra magic in the air and the lure of the indoors becomes the real focus. If you are planning to propose and choose a beautiful engagement ring or go shopping together to find the perfect ring, the lights, color and warmth of Christmas are the perfect backdrop.

When it comes to the season, a candlelit dinner can really set the scene for an engagement that will be remembered forever. Whether it’s a personalized table at home, a private room in a restaurant just for two or a busy dining room, everything looks better by candlelight!

A romantic spa is another great location to propose and particularly during winter time when the hot tub and indoor pool can provide the perfect relaxation. Crisp winter walks and scenic views are a great backdrop to getting down on one knee and hoping for a "yes".

A Christmas proposal offers ample time to plan a summer wedding and is a more practical time that offers more lead in to this than the often traditional Valentine’s Day. Alternatively if you get engaged at Christmas and love the festive time of year, you can also use the opportunity to then have a winter wedding on the anniversary of the engagement. ‘Twixmas’ – the time between Christmas and the New Year is officially the most popular time to propose, creating a series of three fantastic celebrations in a row!

Christmas Eve has become increasingly popular in recent years as one of the biggest days of the year for couples to announce their engagement. It can offer the chance of a big surprise under the tree, you’ll be guaranteed that family are around to join in the celebrations and it will mean the Christmas day of a lifetime!

Christmas is a great time to book a weekend to one of Europe’s festive markets or plan a ski holiday for the perfect background of gorgeous white snow. Ireland can also be at its best on cold winter days with the chance to nip in to a traditional pub for a pre-proposal or post-proposal Guinness!

While Christmas is arguably the most magical time to propose, it really depends on the relationship and whether your intended is expecting a casual low-key ask on the sofa in front of the fire or whether they would like a grand gesture in front of lots of family and friends. No matter what style of proposal, it truly is the most magical time of the year!
