    My husband was originally planning to propose on July 4th at our family BBQ. He changed his mind though and proposed the weekend before that. He said that he just wanted it to be more intimate which I thought was cute.

    It doesn’t matter to me when SO proposes just so long as it’s in a timely fashion at this point lol! I’m a festive dork so I’d be cool with a holiday proposal.

    I think if you were someplace beautiful where you could see the fireworks and he proposed right before so you could say yes and then have literal fireworks go off… that would be really cute!

    I totally agree with you though, winter is ideal time for proposing. I love the holiday season. If mine doesn’t happen soon I hope it happens during Christmastime.

    winterwoodlandbride15:  Exactly what she said!  When the time comes, I don’t think you’ll care what day it is.  It makes it’s own special day in itself. 🙂

    I think it would be a BEAUTIFUL time to propose. Fireworks! Huddled together on a blanket in the back of a truck! Sounds pretty darn good to me!

    Hmm I don’t know how to word any of this. I personally was proposed to on Christmas Eve. I was floored by the extent that he planned our proposal so much that it brought me to instant tears (and as a non-crier, that was a huge deal). I also had no idea he had been planning it for over a month and many people knew. 

    1. Holiday proposals have their conveniences. Family is usually present. For a person who is not a pinterest stalking creative genius, it helps them plan and feel creative without feeling over the top. Chances are they will remember the anniversary of the day they proposed ;). 

    It’s presonal preference, some people like it, some people dont. I would just be thrilled no matter what day it happens on.

    I think its best not to micromanage your own proposal. Let him do it when he is ready and it will be special no matter what.

    I must say it has never occurred to me to think any holiday/not holiday ,  relevant in any way to getting engaged . Mine was a Christmas, or  rather  a couple of days before,  so it was nice to have  extra people around  to show the ring to   , but the actual  time was completely irrelevant .

    And anyway, why would you care if he proposed on  ,say ,Valentines Day or Chistmas Day or NYE? (poor baby, there he is   thinking he’s doing a romanctic thing )

    I mean I assume no-one would   say , “oh god, no thank you darling , too  clichéd for words, put it away and ask again in a week….”

    Funnily, my (now) fiancé proposed on july 4th while we were in Cuba. We’re from the UK though, so don’t celebrare the holiday. But his reasoning was that he would remember the date we got engaged! Haha
