Planning a Christmas Proposal?

Our Top 3 Tips for Proposing at Christmas Time


Christmas time truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and it makes sense to add to those happy vibes with a festive marriage proposal all your own! Firstly, congratulations on taking such an exciting next step in your relationship! If you are looking for a few pointers on where to start, here are our top 3 tips to make sure every part of your plan goes without a hitch.


Ring Shopping

Stressful enough at the best of times right? Imagine trying to compete for a shop attendants attention with the increased amount of Christmas shoppers around – no thanks. Our first tip is to try and get this bit organised a month or two in advance so that you can make the perfect choice without feeling rushed or crowded. However if you can’t or would like some extra assistance, try the wonderful team at


Private vs Public

This time of the year generally sees you around a lot of friends and family, which can be the perfect opportunity to propose while you’re all together. Alternatively it may suit you both better to propose somewhere a little more private. Have a good think about what you and your partner would enjoy most. Also keep this in mind when considering a venue – public spaces/restaurants also see an increase in people around!


The Back-up Plan

Planned to propose in the park where you had your first date and now it’s raining? Or perhaps your plan was to do it privately at home on Christmas Eve, but now you have friends over for a movie marathon. Don’t panic! Sometimes things don’t go to plan, and when you’re already on edge it may seem a little overwhelming. Just take it all in your stride and use the new situation to your advantage. Pack a golf umbrella for two, raincoats and gumboots and pick somewhere at the park with a higher altitude and a view of the rainy day. Alternatively if you were planning to do it at home and now have an audience, bring them into the secret and help you prepare the surprise! The spontaneity of it all will be what makes it special and personal.
