Winter Proposal Inspiration


Hey there! Today I was asking my husband how he would propose to me if he could do it all over again! His response was to say he wished he had prepared more! Hindsight is a gift, right? So here are 3 romantic ideas for proposing around the Christmas holidays. 


1. Take a surprise trip to Norway

There is no place on earth like Norway at this time of the year. The scenery is breath taking. Why not organise a 3 night break to see the Northern lights, visit the christmas markets and soak up the atmosphere of a true open fire, romantic, handmade Nordic christmas. What better place to pop the question to your true love!?!

2. A magical winter walk + picnic

Take a drive to the Cotswolds, Lake District or the New Forest and go for a hike in the great outdoors. Think about surprising her with a sign along the route!


When you return to your car decorate it with fairy lights, play some awesome tunes from your iPhone and enjoy a delicious picnic from Carluccios they make scrumptious picnics for all tastes and dietary requirements. Don't forget the champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries and a blanket. Snuggle up to get warm and enjoy the view from your car boot. Who knows what will happen next!


3. Hide it in the tree

How about a romantic evening in front of the fire? Scented candles, your favourite music playing in the background and decorate the christmas tree together. You can find beautiful 'marry me' keepsake engagement baubles on etsy.com. Surprise her by asking her to hang the bauble adorned with her engagement ring whilst you get ready to kneel!

The Rules!

and finally the rules...My husband kinda fluffed our proposal, claiming he was so excited to give me my ring he forgot to get down on one knee!! So if you're reading this make sure to check the following:

Ask her for her parents blessing

Make it a surprise

Get down on one knee

Make sure she's had a manicure so those nails look great when showing off her new ring!

and most importantly plan a secret photographer to capture that special moment
