How to Pop the Question this Christmas!

Congratulations! You’ve found the love of your life and now it’s time to take the next big step and pop the question. Planning a proposal can be equal parts exhilarating and nerve wracking, as you want the moment to be nothing short of magical but keeping it personal to you and your forever person. Here are some top tips and words of encouragement from us.

  1. Consider your timing

When it comes to proposing, timing is key! Christmas is the most magical time of year and the perfect opportunity to get down on one knee. You may hide the ring under the tree, meet under the mistletoe or pop the question on a long winter walk.

  1. Yes or No to Social Media Proposals

Streaming proposals live on social media has become a trend. Being watched by an audience is not for everyone, and therefore always consider yourselves as individuals and consider your partner’s preferences. You may wish to keep this moment private, don’t feel pressured to follow the latest trend if it doesn’t fit you as a couple.

If you decide that a social media proposal is for you, take inspiration from places like Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok, but remember this is your proposal. Be sure to have the right equipment and have a plan, get your friends and family involved to help you create that incredible moment where the world can witness that long awaited “Yes!”

  1. Adding a personal touch

To make your proposal truly magically and meaningful, think about adding personal touches that reflect your shared journey as a couple. This could include sentimental items, keep sakes or you may plan a Christmas themed activity that aligns with your partner’s interests. Showcase your love story in a unique and personal way and you’ll be sure to get the answer you’ve been waiting for.

  1. Finding the perfect ring

Has your partner already been sending those subtle hints? Those random messages you’ll open with a link to the perfect ring!

But don’t over think this! You know your partner, take inspiration from the jewelry they wear already, or take their bestie, they will no doubt no exactly how to help!

Remember, diamond isn’t for everyone, make sure you shop around and get the sizing right!

  1. Speak from the heart

Short and sweet we feel is best, when you drop to your knee, your partner will already know what’s to come and will be eagerly waiting for that question at the end of your speech. It’s hard to know what to say and how to express how you feel. But take a moment to reflect, practice before hand, take a deep breath, pop the question, and get ready for your forever love story.

  1. Venue Picking

Your partner will be overjoyed, and you’ll be newly engaged. It’s now time to start your search for the perfect venue.
