6 Amazing New Year’s Eve Proposal Ideas

Christmas and New Years and one of the most enchanting times of the year. After spending time with your loved ones and indulging in wine and cheese, you then leave the negativity in 2017, and look forward to what 2018 has to bring. For some couples, the New Year marks a fresh new start, and you can add new meaning to this fresh start when you propose at midnight. A New Year’s Eve proposal is truly magical and so romantic – whether you choose to present the engagement ring at the time of the proposal, or you both go shopping for the ring after, a lot of planning and time goes into creating the ultimate New Year’s Eve proposal. Here are six amazing New Year’s Eve proposal ideas and tips.

Incorporate your proposal into your New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are synonymous with the New Year – everyone around the world makes them! Why not incorporate your engagement in your New Year’s Resolutions? Whether you suggest writing your resolutions down on a list and show them to your partner and then present your diamond engagement ring, or you say them out loud and get down on one knee. You could even ask your partner to write their new year’s resolution and add ‘say yes’ at the end of theirs.

Propose at the stroke of midnight

Sometimes simple really is sweet, and this is the case when it comes to getting down on one knee at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. After the 10 second countdown, as soon as the bells ring out at midnight, drop down on one knee, present your solitaire diamond engagement ring and ask your loved one for their hand in marriage. Remember, if you’re in a really busy venue with lots of noise and fireworks, the proposal may not be as romantic or effective. At ShiningDiamonds, we think that the best place for a romantic proposal shouldn’t be as busy or noisey.

Have a party for two

Not everyone is a party animal, and that’s okay. If you want to skip the noise and crowds, then why not create an winter wonderland in the comfort of your own home, and have a really intimate party for two. Whether you choose to go for rich wines and cheeses or caviar and champagne, it is time to indulge in everything you love, and then propose to the one you love. You can either wait until the stroke of midnight, or whack out your 18 carat diamond engagement ring when the time is right.

Say it with champagne and chocolate

You can propose with desserts in the comfort of your own home or in a restaurant. You could opt to make a reservation at one of your favourite restaurants and arrange for the waitstaff to bring out a covered dessert for your partner. Under the lid there will be a heart-shaped cake, or writing in chocolate with the words, “will you marry me”.. Once revealed, ask the waiters to bring over a bottle of sparkling champagne and flowers. We wouldn’t advise you to put the engagement ring in the drink or food, as you may spend your New Year in A&E.

Propose at a party

If you and your partner are going to a New Year’s party with family and friends, then why not propose there? The overall atmosphere at an NYE party is phenomenal, and you just need to ask the DJ to play the romantic song of your choice, which will then lead you to make your proposal. This will make your partner feel very special and your new year’s eve will be unforgettable. Just make sure you keep the engagement ring in a safe place!

Propose by giving your partner a New Year’s gift

If you and your partner are having a quiet New Year’s Eve where it is just the two of you, then why not present your diamond engagement ring as a gift? This is the perfect sentimental proposal for a tranquil setting, such as a quiet dinner or night in front of the TV. You could make all of your partner’s favourite dishes and give the engagement ring and propose for treat!
