There’s something about the crisp fall air in New England that just makes it such a romantic time. It’s also an opportune time to ask your partner to marry you. Engagements spike from the Thanksgiving season all the way through Valentine’s Day and there are so many reasons why this is the perfect time to finally pop the question. If this is part of your plan next month, we’ve got some ideas to make the special moment truly unique.
A Thanksgiving Dinner to Remember
If your plans are to ask in front of your dearest loved ones then popping the question right at the table as everyone is gathered is a time-tested way to make the holiday a special and memorable one. Wait for an opportune time in between chatter or as it makes sense amongst the conversations to pop in with the surprise, or better yet place the ring atop their slice of pumpkin pie and be ready to ask by the time they realize what’s happening. Talk about a picture-perfect moment. You could even have someone Facetime it to grandma or other loved ones who might be unable to attend.
Caution: We strongly recommend you are very sure of hearing a big YES when proposing in front of others!
If a more private and intimate proposal is what you have in mind, then consider taking a stroll or drive after lunch together to view the beautiful foliage and when you reach a scenic point in the trip, stop to ask the essential question of the day. Choosing a spontaneous but meaningful setting is not only ultra-romantic, it’s something that will always be remembered. Don’t forget to snap a few pictures to share later.
