Proposing at Christmas

Christmas might seem quite far away at the moment, but trust us, it's never too early to start planning for an amazing Christmas proposal! Christmas is a very busy season for us, and it's no wonder why. Christmas is a very romantic time, with all the opportunities for cuddling by the fire, warm jumpers, and of course the mistletoe. Can you think of anything better than celebrating Christmas alongside a new engagement? There are many different things you can do for your perfect Christmas proposal, and you should start thinking about it now! Here are some of our favourites:

A Christmas Tree Proposal

Imagine you and your partner finding a Christmas tree in the middle of somewhere iconic such as London's Hyde Park, and seeing that it is completely personalised to your relationship! IMG_4572lo-716x1024 This is exactly what we arranged for Emma and Ryan. Emma was so surprised to find the tree on their day out, decked out with personalised baubles and lovely messages from Ryan and their families. IMG_4523lo We even left presents at the bottom of the tree which each contained clues to her final present... the ring!

A Christmas Serenade

One of the best things about Christmas is the beautiful decorations. They can create a cosy, intimate and romantic atmosphere, so being surrounded by Christmas decorations is a great way to pop the question! An example of how to do this could be arrange for singers to serenade your partner with their favourite song in a venue with a lovely view. An amazing Christmas tree and and decorations make this proposal festive and perfect. 2014-12-22-13.03.21 We arranged this for Angi and Markus, and they definitely felt the Christmas spirit! We organised a similar Christmas serenade for Sumit and Sapna, who actually met for the first time in a hotel lobby. We arranged for amazing singers to serenade them as they checked in to their hotel, and as they were singing, huge signs with photos of them and their memories were exposed, confirming to Sapna that the beautiful display was all for her. She was so surprised by the whole thing, and couldn't stop smiling as Sumit got down on one knee!

Christmas Day Proposals

If your budget is slightly lower, that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a spectacular proposal! There are many things that can be arranged to present on Christmas morning, in the comfort of your own home. For example, your partner could go to the living room to find a line of stockings hanging... but one of them is different! One of them could be romantically decorated, and with their name on it. As they reach inside they'd find something out of the ordinary: a ring box containing a stunning engagement ring!

When the cracker opens, they'll not only be surprised by the bang!, but also by the words 'Marry Me' that would be beautifully written inside. Who could say no to such a unique proposal?
