Where Should You Propose This Christmas?*

Christmas Proposal Inspiration

According to a recent survey by Wedding Wire, Christmas Day is the most popular day of the year for couples to get engaged. This is followed closely by all of the obvious engagement favourites, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and Christmas Eve.
Planning an engagement can be stressful, especially during the festive period when there is already a lot of pressure for everything to be perfect. But if you’re on the lookout for a bit of festive proposal inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Bespoke jewellers Angelic Diamonds have created a list of top proposal picks I'll be sharing with you today - which may be useful for you to read over, if you're planning on popping the question this year!

Christmas Proposal Inspiration


1. A Cosy Lake District Getaway


One idea would be to plan a cosy Christmas getaway for you and your loved one this year. If you both love the outdoors, the Lake District offers plenty of scenic winter walks to embark on together, during which you could pop the question against a backdrop of magnificent mountains and frost-coated trees. Afterwards, nothing beats relaxing in a snug cottage with a roaring fire to keep you warm and toasty. 

The Lake District also offers plenty of Christmas events throughout the month of December. From Carlisle Christmas market, to the Keswick Proms. For a more luxurious proposal experience, Lake District Country Hotels offer three-night Christmas packages, where you can enjoy mulled wine and gourmet food with bae. 

2. An Ice-Skating Adventure at The Natural History Museum

Unless your partner has two left feet on the ice, proposing at an ice rink is one of the most romantic things you could do this Christmas. Probs check that first, subtly. With a Christmas tree in the centre, the Natural History Museum’s ice rink is enveloped in trees; illuminated by hundreds of fairy lights. A romantic atmosphere is set with the 12th century gothic Natural History Museum as the backdrop to your question. 

Day or night, your partner is bound to be in awe of the location. If you contact your local ice rink, they’re usually happy to help you plan the engagement and may even offer special discounts and treats. Hiring professional flashmob ice skaters is a fun way to surprise the person you’re proposing to, turning fellow ice skaters from strangers on the rink to a unique event dedicated to him or her. And chances are, they won’t be expecting it at all.

3. A Christmas Market or Christmas Carol Concert

Christmas Markets have now kicked off in almost every city, so you don’t have to travel too far to find one. To make this engagement idea extra special, you could plant small, thoughtful gifts at different stalls; commemorating your relationship together. These could be inside jokes, or things you know they love. Make your way around the stalls until you get to a Christmas tree where you can drop to one knee and ask those special words, ‘will you marry me?’

You could also take your partner to a Christmas Carol Concert. If they’re a fan of taking part in traditional Christmas songs, you could check out local events and surprise them during one of their favourite carols. Maybe slip a proposal rap into the mix; Stormzy style.

4. Your Local Christmas Tree Farm

If you think your partner might prefer more of a low-key proposal, an understated yet traditionally festive location such as a Christmas Tree Farm could be a great shout. Going here is also an excellent way to catch bae off guard; whilst in the midst of a festive activity. 

It’s worth getting in contact with your local Christmas Tree Farm and asking if there’s a secluded area you can decorate, and maybe even hire a photographer to hide and snap pics of the unforgettable, private moment. You could even take the Christmas tree you got engaged next to home!

So, there we have it. Some of the best Christmas settings to pop the question this year. Check out Christmas events at cities near you for more inspiration. Merry Christmas guys x
