So you’re planning to propose to your special someone this winter. It’s the festive season and magic is in the air; you’ve chosen the perfect diamond engagement ring and now all that’s left to do it pick a special place to really mark the occasion. Here are our suggestions for great places to propose this holiday period.
On the Ski Slopes
Nothing screams wintery wonderland romance than a ski holiday, complete with a quintessential wooden chalet, charming mountain villages and exhilarating days out flying down the slopes with your loved one.
TOP TIP: For a moment of total privacy and intimacy, pop the question on a tandem ski lift so that when you get to the top, you’ll be able to ski down the mountain as betrotheds.
By a Roaring Fire
Warm your bodies and your hearts with a cozy fireside proposal. Whether you choose to pop the question at your own fireplace at home, or on a romantic weekend break away, the mesmerizing flickering flames and the relaxing warmth will have you both in a state of complete tranquility; so much so that all the pre-proposal nerves will be burnt away.
TOP TIP: Have a chilled bottle of Champagne ready and waiting to be popped when the answer is “Yes”!
In an Outdoor Hot Tub
It might be cold out, but what could be more romantic than luxuriating in the steaming waters of a hot tub with that special someone? Point out the constellations twinkling up in the night sky and while your significant other is stargazing, take out the engagement ring. When they look down, the look of surprise on their face will be priceless.
TOP TIP: Hot tubs are wet, so avoid damaging the box by holding the ring, or hiding on the neck of a champagne bottle.
In a Hot Air Balloon
Lift your partner off their feet with a sky-high proposal in a hot air balloon. These floating aircrafts can be rented in destinations around the country (and the rest of the world) and make the perfect proposal location for a memorable milestone moment.
TOP TIP: Let your pilot know in advance and maybe even ask them to secretly film or photograph the moment your loved one says yes.
On a Sleigh Ride
If you plan to propose in a snowy destination, go the extra mile and see if you can organise a sleigh ride for your partner. All the additional thought and effort that went into planning something so special will be well worth it when you get that yes!
TOP TIP: Arrange for the sleigh ride to take you to a beautiful location where you can get down on one knee and pop the question while your driver snaps the moment.
