Winter Wonderland Proposals

Imagine kneeling in powdery, fresh snow while soft, icy flakes swirl around the two of you. The delightful chill of the icy air reddens your cheeks, and the excitement of seeing the forever captivating ring of her dreams for the first time warms you both from the inside out. Perhaps glowing candlelight or the lights of a ski lodge create a backdrop for your perfectly romantic moment. If starting your engagement journey in snowy weather sounds like a dream come true, plan your own magical proposal around the most sparkly season of all! Whether you're sporty snow bunnies, indoor cuddlers, or just walking in a winter wonderland, proposal ideas for chilly, winter weather are endless! 

1. Hit the slopes: Whether you're first-time skiers or practically professional, popping the question at a ski lodge, on the lift or with some hot cocoa between slopes is a great way to capture an unforgettable moment while having a blast together. 

2. Have a ball: Start a playful snowball fight, build a snowman, go ice-skating or sledding — any nostalgic, snow-centered activity will do! Wait until the perfect moment, then present the ring along with a sweet message. You can even create an adorable photo-op by placing the ring in a heart-shaped snowball, or atop your newly made snowman!

3. Glow in the snow: Create a path with lanterns or candles in vintage mason jars leading to the words "MARRY ME" written in the snow. Take a romantic walk or a sleigh ride in the glow of the candlelight, then surprise her with a perfectly planned proposal. Make sure to have a photographer waiting nearby — these photos will be breathtaking!

Prepare for your proposal by thinking through all the details. Have some hot cocoa, champagne, or even a fun treat like s'mores waiting indoors to celebrate after. Consider inviting family and friends to the after-celebration. If you're proposing outdoors, surprise her with a cute scarf or hat that you know she'll love beforehand. She'll feel extra-cute in photos, and she'll stay warm during the whole captivating experience!
