If you’ve been thinking about proposing for a while, but so far haven’t found the right time, how about New Year’s Eve? The new year is a truly magical time of year; it’s a time when just about anything can happen.
The idea of proposing on New Year’s Eve is, even more, special than at any other time of the year because the new year marks a new beginning. It’s a time when we look to the future and talk about our hopes and dreams for the coming year. What better way to start the new year than proposing to your partner?
While popping the question on New Year’s Eve can be incredibly romantic, it can be hard to come up with ideas for the best ways to do it. To help you ensure that your proposal is as beautifully romantic as you would like it to be, we’ve put together a few ideas.
One of the best ways to propose on New Year’s Eve is also the most simple; pop the question at midnight. Instead of starting the new year with ‘Happy New Year’, let the first words out of your mouth be, ‘Will you marry me?’.
As the clock chimes midnight, get down on one knee and pop the question. It might be simple, but because it’s the start of a new year, it makes it, even more, special. For an extra special proposal, ask her just as the fireworks start to go off.
The one downside to proposing on New Year’s Eve is the price of eating out, as most places put up their prices. However, if you don’t mind paying for an expensive meal, popping the question in a romantic restaurant could be ideal.
The atmosphere on New Year’s Eve is like no other time of the year. The air is full of excitement and hope, making it the perfect time for a proposal. Don’t just pick any restaurant, choose somewhere that’s special to the two of you. Maybe the place that you met or where you had your first date? Ensure it’s a romantic setting – candles, champagne, the works.
Celebrate at home
New Year can be an incredibly busy time, if you want to skip the crowds, why not celebrate at home? That way, you can create a beautifully romantic and intimate setting for your proposal, and won’t have to worry about other people.
If you’re going to celebrate the new year at home, and of course, pop the question, make sure to make the setting special. Dot candles around, light a fire, spoil yourselves with champagne, and all of your favourite treats. Snuggle up on the sofa together watching movies, talking or playing games. Sometimes, the best proposals are the most intimate ones.
Popping the question on New Year’s Eve can make your proposal, even more, special and memorable. For inspiration, take note of the ideas above, and you can plan the most amazing proposal. New Year is a magical time, which is what makes it perfect for asking the one you love to spend the rest of their life with you.
