Pros of a December engagement

  • The holiday season is a great opportunity to spend time with extended family on both sides. Having your families nearby is a meaningful way to include them in your engagement celebration.
  • The holidays are full of moments that easily lend themselves to a proposal. Decorating the tree and passing a new sparkling ‘ornament’, or building up the week’s Hanukkah presents leading to the ultimate gift of a ring.
  • The general anticipation and excitement of Christmas and New Year’s Eve can set a wonderfully festive tone for your wedding proposal evening.

Cons of a December engagement

  • Be aware that the engagement may be overshadowed by the holiday season.  Consider if your partner would rather have a wedding proposal on its “own” day, instead of on Christmas or New Year’s Eve.
  • The holiday season can bring a lot of stress, and suddenly having to think about wedding planning on top of it all may seem overwhelming to some.
  • Your proposal may not feel very private or intimate with so many family members around.
