Three Reasons Why New Year’s Eve is the Perfect Time to Propose

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest celebrations of the year, but if we’re being totally honest, it can sometimes be a bit of a let-down, especially with the big build-up it gets given.

So what better way to make this New Year an evening to remember than finally popping the question to your significant other?

If you’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity to present itself, let us make the case for proposing this New Year’s Eve.

The Stage is Already Set

There’s something a little bit romantic about New Year’s Eve, even before you introduce the idea of a big proposal!

The tradition of kissing someone at midnight means that everyone is already loved up and in the mood.

It’s one of the few times of the year when it’s ok to be totally, unashamedly romantic, so why not embrace it and take things one step further than the traditional kiss, and get down on one knee?

Another great thing about New Year is that whatever you’re doing, whether it’s a quiet meal for two or a friend’s house party, everybody is dressed to impress for your engagement, without even realising it’s about to happen, which is great if you’ve got someone on hand to snap a picture of the special moment.

The Element of Surprise

With all of the other celebrations going on for New Year’s Eve, a proposal will be the last thing that your partner is expecting.

With this in mind, try not to do anything that’s too out of the ordinary for what you would normally do on New Year’s Eve.

For example, if you’re the type of couple who would usually stay in with a takeaway on New Year’s Eve, but this time you’re making big plans such as a fancy restaurant, you might be showing your hand a little too much.

On the other hand, if all your friends are having a big party but you’re trying to steer your partner away from it for a cosy night in, they’ll start to twig that something’s not right, so try to go with the flow and work your proposal into what would otherwise be a normal New Year’s Eve for the two of you.

Here are some romantic New Year’s ideas to hopefully spark a little bit of inspiration.

A Date You’ll Never Forget

Like we said earlier, New Year’s Eve can sometimes be a bit of a let-down, but once it becomes the date that you popped the question, it’ll always have that extra special significance to the pair of you.

If you choose to propose on other significant dates, such as Christmas, it can feel a little bit like you’re trying to hijack the occasion, but with New Year, everyone’s just in such a celebratory mood, that you don’t have to worry about upstaging anything.

Another good thing about picking this particular date is that it gives you the perfect excuse for a New Year wedding in a year’s time.

According to Broadoaks Country House in the Lake District, many of the couples that get married at their hotel in the New Year were proposed to on a romantic trip to the area exactly a year earlier.

So, now that you’ve decided that New Year is the perfect time to pop the question, check out these ten dos and don’ts, to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch!
