At this festive time of year Romance is in the chilly winter air... And also the most popular time of year to ask the most popular question ever asked:
A recent survey of 7,000 people found that Christmas Eve is apparently the most popular date in the year to pop the question.
However, in true ‘men-are-from-Venus-women-are-from-Mars’ style, men and women don’t always agree and even have different thoughts on the perfect day to be proposed to...
From the survey it seems clear that the ladies prefer the idea of seeing their partner on bended knee on Valentine’s Day, followed closely by the anniversary of the day he couple first met.
While, those romantic gents out there let the Christmas spirit do the talking, preferring to ‘pop the question’ before Santa steals his thunder!
You may think that an elaborate proposal is the way to go but...
more than half of women in the study voted for their partner to get straight to the point and simply say ‘will you marry me?’, with less emphasis on the cryptic or extravagant approach.
The survey showed that more than a quarter of UK ladies would prefer a techy-based proposal via a social media platform... weird and tacky for some but aweome and fun for others!
However, that man on a virtual bended knee choosing this trendy way to propose should beware because if she says ‘No’ it could go viral for all the wrong reasons!!
In 2012, Celebrity tattoo artist received her marriage proposal via twitter:
Kat promptly tweeted in response: 'Mi corazon! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiance!'
Check out our “Will you marry me?” Pinterest board for all things to do with being engaged: popping the question, the engagement ring, the engagement party, the engagement photo shoot, save-the-date and more...
So, it’s Christmas Eve... and while I write this blog I appreciate that offering ideas and suggestions of how to make the perfect Christmas proposal may be somewhat too late... you may not have popped the question yet, so this blog may influence your choice of date for a 2014 proposal!
So, if you’re planning a festive engagement or want to make 2014 the year you 'pop the question' then good luck and congratulations in advance! If you found this blog interesting or have something to share about your engagement proposal, we'd love to hear it so please share your thoughts and comment on our tweet if you prefer Twitter
