Why Proposing at New Year’s is Fantastic


There are many times throughout the year that can be marked as the perfect day for proposing. But honestly, many pale in comparison the magic surrounding a New Year’s Eve proposal.  If you not convinced as to why proposing as the ball drops may be the perfect moment for your big questions, here’s a few reasons to consider.

1. The Symbolic Meaning 

You’re about to embark on a new journey already with the beginning of the New Year approaching– why not start a new journey in your relationship as well? The speech basically writes itself as you talk about starting a new life together in the New Year. It’ll definitely be a moment she’ll never forget.

2. She’ll already be dressed up

While some girls won’t admit it, we all secretly  hope that we’ll look drop-dead gorgeous during our proposal (that’s why my friend intercepted me right before mine and had me change out of a sweat shirt). But New Years Eve is the night girls love to dawn that classy cocktail dress or that super fun, sparkly party dress. She’ll already be feeling like a rock star-princess combo, so it’s a great moment to make her feel even more special. Plus, when someone snaps that inevitable picture of her saying “YES!” she LOVE the pictures because she already planned to look amazing that night.

3. You can share the moment with friends

It can be a headache to organize all your loved ones in one place randomly throughout the year if you want to share in your proposal. But New Year’s Eve gives you the perfect excuse to be able to propose in front of you and your future bride’s favorite people. If your lady is a people person or someone who values sharing moments with friends and family, she’ll definitely enjoy being the center of attention and also the fact that she has a few less people to call with the news.

4. You already have toasting on standby

For many couples, toasting to the next step in their relationship comes later at an engagement party or when telling the parents over dinner. However for New Year’s Eve proposers, chances are you’ll already have champagne any direction you look that night because people are gearing up to toast the new year. Toasting is an extra special touch to seal the perfect moment.

5. You can’t forget your Proposal-versary

Let’s face it– it’s hard enough to remember your wedding anniversary for most guys let alone when you proposed. But trust us, most girls LOVE remember that day. So why make it hard on yourself? If you propose on New Year’s Eve– you’ll never ever forget when that special moment happened.
