The Christmas season is a popular time of year for wedding proposals. And why not? Christmas is the season when good cheer and positive vibes are all around. Why not take advantage of all that positivity to ask the love of your life for her hand in marriage? The only downside is that rejection can make for a miserable Christmas. But let’s not worry about that. Instead, let us talk about some very imaginative ways you can take advantage of the Christmas season to create a very personal and memorable proposal.
If you are planning to propose this Christmas, and your intended has any suspicions a proposal is forthcoming, you will need to create an experience that goes well beyond her expectations. We have five ideas for you:
Offer Your Proposal in Song
Are you the kind of couple that would think nothing of joining a group of friends to go carolling in your neighbourhood? Or perhaps there is a family tradition in your household of getting together around the tree and singing Christmas carols on Christmas Eve. Either is an excellent opportunity to offer your proposal in song.
Write a little ditty if you are the creative type. If not, just borrow your favourite Christmas carol and alter the words slightly. You might even enlist the help of your friends or family members to help you sing the right words at just the right time.
Pay a Visit to Santa Claus
Visiting Santa Claus at the local shopping centre may be something your intended did every year as a child. Now is the time to relive those childhood memories with another visit as an adult. If you are clever, you can make arrangements ahead of time so that your chosen Santa has the engagement ring in his possession. Rather than your intended asking for a list of things this Christmas, Santa can turn around and offer the engagement ring as you drop to one knee and make your proposal.
The Christmas Countdown Calendar
We have all seen those Christmas countdown calendars with doors that open to reveal secret surprises for the kids. Why not do the same for your intended? Behind each door you can hide a small piece of paper with a romantic message, slowly counting down the days until Christmas. Behind the Christmas Eve or Christmas Day door, hide a picture of a diamond engagement ring along with your proposal message. She will be both thrilled and surprised!
Your Holiday Light Display
If you are a homeowner who appreciates the opportunity to create a custom holiday light display every year, you have the perfect canvas for an outstanding proposal. This idea is based on something they do at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios every Christmas season. Scattered throughout the millions of Christmas lights on display are ‘hidden Mickeys’ guests are challenged to find. There can be upwards of five or six dozen in any given year.
Likewise, hide your proposal message somewhere within your holiday light display. You might also create an engagement ring out of lights and hide that as well. Then challenge your intended to find the secret items without saying exactly what they are. Once found you could trigger a romantic song to play on your sound system along with a custom light show that directs her focus squarely on your proposal message.
There are lots of other great ideas for proposing during the Christmas season. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you visit Engage Diamond Studio in Toronto for your engagement rings and wedding bands.
