5 Ideas for a Winter Wedding Engagement

When you know it’s the right time to ask the big question, you just know! For the more festive among us, the winter wedding engagement is the way to go. Here are some of our top ideas to help make the moment unforgettable. From different locations, to staging your own winter wonderlands, there are so many great engagement ideas for you and your SO this holiday season!

The Perfect Place

The spot in which you propose is just as important as how you do it. The most obvious choice would be somewhere that you have a history together, such as the place you had your first date.  However, there are all kinds of great places to go in the winter that can help capture the magic you are looking for. You could brave the trek to the top of a mountain, or take the more traditional route and hit up the local ice rink. If you want to make it more intimate, you can always pop the question at home in front of the fire all cozied up with a cup of hot chocolate. Whether you take a more personal approach or make an elaborate gesture of love, wherever it is should show them how much you care.

Capturing The Moment

It should go without saying in today’s age of social media mania, that you should take at least a few photos of the occasion. Winter can be a great time of year to get the perfect engagement photo! Some people prefer to have a close friend take their photos so their partner doesn’t expect anything. While others like to hire a photographer and have it done professionally. Either way, it’s a great idea to have someone there to capture the moment forever.

No Better Time

When most people think of a winter proposal the holidays are typically the first thing to come to mind. You can always ask your SO infront of the christmas tree or under the mistletoe, but it’s never a bad idea to double up the holiday party excitement with an engagement that grandma will never forget. Another engagement idea that works well is a proposal on New Year’s. This gives you and your partner the chance to start the year off right and spend it planning the big day. However you celebrate this holiday season, it is the perfect time of year to give the gift of eternal love to your partner.

Be A Kid Again 

We all remember playing out in the snow, building snowmen, and having snowball fights, so why not take your SO out to play in the fresh fallen snow and right before you go in pop the big question. Make snow angels, write it out in the snow in giant letters, or make an igloo and propose inside. Any winter wedding engagement idea that has to do with snow should be at the top of your list for sure.  

The Illusion Of Winter

For this one you are going to have to pull out all the stops, it might be a little more work but in the end it will be worth it. This engagement idea is awesome for those of us that live in the less snow laden states. Do your best to capture the magic of the holidays. Use white cloth and sheets to look like snow, hang lights and other holiday décor, and generally do whatever you can to make it feel and look like winter. This DIY winter wonderland might be a little more expensive and over the top, but it will ensure that your SO is wrapped up in the moment. 

Hopefully this has given you some inspiration and can help with your own winter wedding engagement ideas. Don’t forget that Longmeadow has got you covered for all of your wedding needs, so for more info go check out our wedding page
