Should you get engaged over the holidays?

The most wonderful time of the year can only be made better by one thing - getting engaged!

The holiday season is one of the most popular times of year to get engaged. Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Valentine's Day, there are countless opportunities to pop the question surrounded by the people you love most. You'll probably see engagement announcements flooding your social media feed, and that's because so many engagements occur this time of year!

Should you get engaged over the holidays?
This action-packed time of year is filled with parties, gatherings, friends, and family. It's a magical setting - homes are festively decorated, lights are strewn throughout the neighborhood, and fireplaces roar to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Getting engaged this time of year only enhances the charm of it all. Whether the ring is packaged as a sparkling little present under the tree or presented at an extravagant New Year's dinner, a holiday engagement can be the cherry on top of the holiday season.

If you decide this is the time to propose or to announce your engagement, be prepared for a few things:

  • Make sure she's going to say yes! You don't want to be responsible for creating a cringe-worthy moment with her friends and family there to watch.
  • Remember that this is your moment, but it may not take center stage amidst the holiday hustle and bustle - and don't let that hurt your feelings! Enjoy sharing the spirit of the season.
  • Be prepared for questions. Having a loose idea of your wedding date will help you answer the questions that are sure to come your way.
  • Keep your audience in mind. If your sister was recently divorced or your brother is having trouble saving up for a ring, you'll want to protect their feelings despite the excitement.
  • Take some time for yourselves! There will be many holiday events with friends and family. Be sure to make some time for just the two of you to celebrate the beginning of the rest of your lives together.
