The best times of year to propose

Planning a proposal is a stressful task. You need to think about the ring, location and time. Your engagement proposal should reflect your personality and relationship as a couple. It’s important to focus on what you want as a couple – instead of getting overwhelmed by traditions and opinions. Make your proposal a magical experience that you will remember for the rest of your lives.

Here are the best times to propose to your loved one.

The Christmas period

Everyone loves a Christmas proposal. The festive season is all about family, romance and luxury. You could propose on Christmas morning in front of the tree and surrounded by presents. You might even capture the moment for Instagram, so you can share the iconic engagement picture captioned “best present ever.”

Or, you could wait until New Year’s Eve and propose at midnight under the fireworks. Surround yourself with your family and friends and celebrate the big occasion together. A festive proposal is perfect for couples who love this time of year.

When you get the ring

If your partner is likely to find the ring in your sock drawer, pull the proposal forward. As soon as you get the engagement ring, organise the proposal and catch your partner by surprise.

An anniversary

Your anniversary is already a special date that you both share. You can make this anniversary extra special with a proposal. Share your favourite memories so far, and talk about the day your first met. Just as you are reflecting on your sentimental memories together, you can propose to your partner.

If you want to make it extra special, you could arrange to get married on your next anniversary.

Valentine’s Day

A Valentine’s Day is for the classic romantics. Some people might find it a little corny, while others revel in the romance of it all. It’s already the perfect day to celebrate your love and relationship so far. If you are going for a Valentine’s proposal, make sure you go all out with the hearts, roses and chocolates.

When it feels right

Sometimes the best proposals are spontaneous and on a completely random date. Proposing on a special date can add a lot of pressure to an already stressful event. Take a step back and remember that this proposal should be an intimate moment between the two of you. You could propose on your couch at home with a movie and Domino’s pizza.

Make your proposal a moment to remember.
