Hi All,

What are your thoughts on Christmas proposals?

I have always kind of thought it was a bit of a rip off, like using the engagement as a Christmas present.
But I know a lot of people do it.

What do you think?

Christmas is a great time for proposals for a variety of reasons. One important reason is that couples can celebrate their engagement with their families, since people often only see their families once a year around Christmas.

That’s a very good point! Love it!

Like you @kmoro think it's a bit of a cop out. Same as I don't want to get married at Christmas (even though we met in December). I'd like to have separate dates for special occasions.

I didn’t get proposed to at Christmas, but we got married on the 23rd - just celebrated our 40th!

My parents got married Christmas Day and today is their 55th anniversary. It was (I am told) a very romantic wedding and the proposal was also romantic...my dad proposed to my mom on the Brooklyn Bridge. Six weeks after they had gone on their first date.

A Christmas Wedding isn't for everyone of course but as with everything one's mileage varies. The day was even more festive and special for all that celebrated with them on their wedding day. Worked out very very well for my parents and all their loved ones who shared the love that day. :kiss2:

@Austina December is proving to be a great month for anniversaries and I know I already wished you a very happy Anniversary but 40 years is worth congratulating many many times...happy Anniversary month to a lovely and warm couple. (((Hugs))).

We got married on Boxing Day, which I absolutely love, because not only is our anniversary difficult to forget, we don’t need to buy presents in advance as we just go out shopping together.

I suppose that is a big advantage :mrgreen2: and it would be romantic and festive to get married around that time.
I've told my fiancé we are getting married next year. I was hoping for April or May but we need to move house first. So I suggested October (school holidays) and he suggested December 7th, which is the date we met. I would need to take unpaid leave from work to get married outside of the school holidays though.
We'll see. :cool2:

Missy, what a beautiful and lovely photo and romantic proposal.

I’d be up for a Christmas engagement or wedding! If a wedding, I’d likely do a small family focused wedding. I just love everything about the holidays, from lights to Christmas trees to the spirit of giving and spending time with family and getting cozy in the cold. I once saw photos of a wedding at a Christmas tree lot, and it was just magical!

I'd be up for an engagement anytime, when you love the person and it's right why does the season or day matter? I'd not feel cheated at all, but then again I am a very pragmatic person. For me, the elements of a non public, romantic, and personal proposal would trump any issues over timing.

I find it so romantic like all the Hallmark movies lol. I like combining the two because it’s just all the more happy.
