Proposals Using Winter as Your Backdrop Part 2

Winter is the perfect time to propose to that special someone who has taken hold of your heart and refuses to let go.  In our previous post we listed a number of winter time proposals that were sure to melt your soul mates heart.  There were just so many great submissions that we thought we would share some more.
Christmas proposals are popular because they tend to offer the perfect timing for a summer wedding.  If you are going to pop the question at the holiday why not recruit good ole saint Nicholas in on the fun?  Santa is magical to all of us young and old.  His mission is to make holiday dreams come true.  More likely than not if you have been dating some time and are seriously committed this is her holiday dream! Incorporate Santa into a date.  Often times the holidays bring with them light displays that end with Santa.  This is a perfect proposal opportunity.  Have Santa all set up with the ring and when the time is right get down on one knee and propose.  Better yet, have her venture out with some friends and surprise her dressed as Santa!
Another popular holiday proposal tradition is during the New Year festivities.  The nice part about this type of proposal is that it can occur with friends all around and a celebration already in progress.  Let your imagination go wild with a New Year’s Eve proposal.  Classic proposals may include a ring in champagne or chocolate dipped strawberries with a side of diamond engagement ring.  Unique proposals may include adding the ring to a party favor that she pops open at the crack of midnight!
Another winter holiday that should not be forgotten is Valentine’s Day.  This one day is all about love so what better way to use it to your advantage then to pull off a stunning, one of a kind proposal.  This holiday is perfect for any type of girl introvert or extrovert.  For an outgoing girl plan a desert party with a group of your couple friends.  Have everyone over to your home, bringing a dessert and some beverages to share.  With everyone there and having a great time, dim the lights and have your favorite song play on your stereo system.  Clear a space on the floor and ask her to dance while everyone is watching.  At the end of the dance kneel down and propose with the engagement ring in one hand and hers in your other.
For a girl who is more introverted the perfect Valentine’s Day proposal should be centered on just the two of you.  Plan a day of firsts or a day revisiting your firsts.  At the end of the night ask her to join you for desert or for a glass of wine.  When the conversation is perfect and the moment is just right stop and quietly get down on one knee.  Be sure not to cause a scene.  For an introvert the last thing they want is to be the center of attention.
No matter how you propose this winter season we hope that some of these ideas help you find the perfect way to give her the moment she has been dreaming of her entire life!

Proposals Using Winter as Your Backdrop Part 1

The cold and snow is upon us here in the North.  With this comes the holiday season and of course holiday proposals.  Now that you have found your soul mate and the engagement ring of her dreams it is time for the perfect proposal.  Below you will find a variety of ideas to make your moment special and one that she will remember and share for a lifetime.

What is more romantic to a women who loves winter more than an outdoor proposal?  Take her snow shoeing or out for a winter hike on your favorite trail.  Before you go venture out on your own and put in place signs that ask her to be your wife one word at a time along the trail.  At the last sign use food coloring and water to write out, "Will you marry me" in the snow.

Another proposal that is unique and uses Christmas lights is to take them and spell out "Marry Me?" on the roof.  Sync lights up on the home that play to your song, she will think that is the big surprise.  At the end of song have the house lights go dark and the roof lights turn on!  I promise she will be blown away.

Another option for a winter enthusiast is taking her for a wonderful day on the slopes, cross country skiing, sledding or ice skating.  Spend the day with one another sharing in a winter activity you both enjoy.  At the end of the date suggest warming up with a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate at a nearby coffee shop. Have the shop in on your big surprise and present her with a cup of her favorite beverage.  Under the cup on the small plate have them write out, "Will you marry me?" She won’t need the beverage to warm her up anymore that is guaranteed!

A horse drawn carriage ride through snow hills.  Need I say more?  Take a warm blanket, thermos with cocoa and that sparkly diamond engagement ring you choose!  Have the driver take you through the hills, by cottages with Christmas lights and really up the ambiance. Wait for just the right moment and have the driver pause the carriage.  If the driver is up for it you can have them get some pictures of the big moment.  Get off the carriage, help her as well and kneel down into the snow.  This is a surefire way to have her melting into a puddle.

The best thing with all of these proposals is that the engagement ring will sparkle something amazing with the snow as a backdrop!  The moment is about leaving her speechless and these are some perfect ways to make just that happen.
