by PearlWhite » Dec 28, 2017 My plans were to propose at midnight on New Years Eve. We planned on having a little get together at our house but has now turned into a larger gathering between both our families. I was thinking of proposing in front of everyone at the stroke of midnight right after I light off the fireworks display but have read that proposing in front of family and friends really isn’t a great idea. So now I’m looking at other ways to go about it. Any help would be much appreciated.
