To make things easier and more special for you, we’ll give you some ideas on how to propose on New Year’s Eve, so keep scrolling.
Exchange New Year’s Resolutions
New Year’s resolutions are always part of New Year’s Eve and the New Year itself. However, you can take this activity to the next level. Find a peaceful and romantic spot where you and your future fiancée can comfortably sit down.
Then, start talking about each other’s New Year’s resolutions and goals. When it’s your turn, bring up your intention to spend the rest of your life with the person you truly love. Whether your “speech” is rehearsed or raw, they’ll surely love your proposal as long as it’s genuine. Sometimes, the best way to propose on New Year’s Eve is to just let your heart speak.
Take a Trip Down Memory Lane
If you want a simple but meaningful proposal on New Year’s Eve, consider taking a trip down memory lane. Besides, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to look back on what’s happened throughout the year. Remind your significant other of the happy moments and the challenges you’ve overcome together. Make a photo slideshow or a video of these special moments so you can set the mood before you pop the question.
This is also you telling them that you can’t wait for more adventures and misadventures with them. You can always play that video every time you need to be reminded of how far you’ve come as a couple and how strong you have been together.
Do It With a Personalized Champagne Bottle
Another fun and unique way to propose to your partner is through a champagne bottle with a label containing your message. You can choose something witty that will lead to that perfect time to ask them. You can also just opt for the usual romantic note like, “I want to be with you forever.”
While having a romantic dinner, lead the topic to your future together. Then, ask the waiter to present the champagne bottle that comes with your message.
Involve Your Pet
If your partner loves their pets, you can also make them part of your special proposal. For example, you can create a sign saying “Will you marry mom/dad?” and then hang it around the neck of your furbaby.
You might also want to clip the engagement ring onto your pet’s collar. Then, invite your partner for a walk together with your adorable dog. Once they tie the leash on your pup’s collar, they’ll see the cutest surprise.
Make It Your New Year’s Eve Gift
Got the best ring ready for your partner? Then, you already have the perfect New Year’s Eve gift for them. Make that precious diamond ring your special gift. This kind of proposal is suitable for an intimate New Year’s Eve where there are no other people but the two of you. Make your quiet meal at home more special with that ring gift. Prepare your partner’s favorite meal, then, offer the engagement ring and propose with dessert.
Take Advantage of Your Holiday Tree
One advantage of planning a proposal on New Year’s Eve is that all those Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, are still alive. Given the beautiful lights, they make for perfect accessories for your proposal. Channel your creative self and change up the ornaments. You can even add photos that highlight your special moments together.
You might also want to add messages that emphasize the things that make you love your partner even more. Then, you can make your engagement ring your last gift that got lost or was forgotten under the Christmas tree.
Propose at Your First Date Location
Did you have your first date at a quiet restaurant in the Mile High City? Was your first date in the museum? Did you go on a hike together? Did you first meet your partner at a party? A great way to propose on New Year’s Eve is to go back to that spot where you had your first date or where you first met them. This makes the place even more memorable for you as a couple as it witnessed your milestones together.
Walk Through RiNo’s Beautiful Murals
If you want a simple but special way to propose to your beau, spend a late afternoon together visiting interesting shops, impressive restaurants, and different bars in RiNo. Then, take the time to appreciate the murals that RiNo’s known for. You can find the perfect spot in advance so you can just stop there after walking around and then get down on one knee.
Propose With a View
Location is crucial in pulling off a successful proposal on New Year’s Eve. It’s especially important if your partner is into magnificent views. You can choose a rooftop restaurant or ask a friend with rooftop access so you can pop the question while you’re admiring a spectacular view.
The Mile High City is rich in magnificent views, so you have different options to choose from. For example, City Park offers many spots where you can pop the question. Red Rocks Amphitheater is another great spot for your surprise proposal. From Wynkoop Bridge to Daniels and Fisher Clock Tower, Denver has the perfect backdrop for your proposal.
Do It When the Clock Strikes 12
Not sure how to propose on New Year’s Eve? Just do it when the clock strikes midnight. While everyone is excited counting down the last few seconds of 2022, use this opportunity to express to your partner how much you love them. Then, at the stroke of midnight, get down on one knee. If you and your partner love to party, then a busy setting full of fireworks and people will be a perfect surprise.
Propose at a New Year’s Eve Party
As we mentioned, choosing the right venue will help make your proposal even more memorable. If you’re both party animals and want to have the best NYE experience, then consider proposing at Resolution Denver. Before midnight, you and your partner can maximize our open bar celebration, complete with world-class disc jockeys, breathtaking art experiences, impressive Circa performers, and more.
Colorado’s no. 1 NYE party also includes an ultimate New Year’s countdown and giant ball drop. Take advantage of the grand New Year’s Eve party at Resolution Twenty23, and make it grander with your proposal. It will surely be one of the best memories to remember every year, and you can go back to Resolution Denver to celebrate your proposal-versary.
Get Your Family and Friends Involved
Proposing to your partner means a huge change not only to both of you but also to your family and even close friends. Moreover, these people are important to you, so you’ll want them to be part of that special occasion. It’s a perfect time to welcome your partner as a new member of the family too.
Ask for their help when you propose. If your partner prefers a more intimate type of proposal, then it’s best to gather each other’s family and closest friends to witness this milestone. It’s also a sign of respect for the parents and family members of your soon-to-be spouse.
Once your partner says the sweetest yes and officially becomes your fiancée, you can go to Resolution Twenty23 to release those strong, euphoric feelings after the proposal.
