“My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me” ― Winston Churchill

We at A. JAFFE decided to repost this blog. We figured it is the perfect time, with Christmas falling next week. If anyone out there is on the fence about proposing on Christmas day, hopefully this will help clear some things up!

Every guy is looking to make his wedding proposal extra special. You’ve already chose the perfect designer engagement ring that she will be sure to love, and now all you have to do is find the right moment to get down on one knee. You’re probably thinking wouldn’t it be a Christmas miracle if I popped the question Christmas morning? Wrong! In most cases there are more cons, than pros, when it comes to proposing on Christmas. We at A. JAFFE made a list of all the reason why you should steer clear of December 25th.

Some people refer to proposing on a holiday, such as Christmas, as the “kiss of death” You don’t want to start off your new married life in that direction, now do you? When it comes to asking the big question, you need to think of the big picture. What will this day mean years down the road? And what will happen if you don’t get the outcome you were hoping for? It might seem like a romantic idea today, but that might not hold up forever.

If she says no or the engagement is broken off, Christmas will be a personal reminder to the both of you. Each year when the snow is falling, Christmas lights are twinkling, and everyone is happily sipping on spiked eggnog, you or your ex might be sobbing over the past. Each time your heart will be breaking over and over again. It will go down in history that the holiday you once thought would make the perfect proposal is now a day of misery.

Holidays normally mean presents, eating, drinking, and happiness. So why not add a new special holiday to the calendar, your engagement. No girl wants to share her special day. By choosing your own special day for a wedding proposal, the two of you can have a yearly celebration remembering that special moment.

Christmas can be very stressful for some people. There is so much hustle and bustle; you wouldn’t want to ask your sweetheart to marry you when there is a lot on her plate. She is probably already stressed out, no need to add the thought of planning a wedding to that.

We realize not everyone will have a bad experience with proposing on Christmas. Some couples have great success. This is where the pros of a Christmas wedding proposal come in. Now there is an added sense of significance to the day. Christmas now has become extra special for a happily engaged couple. It is a very consistent time of year filled with joy and cheer. There is an exception to every rule and some women feel honored to share their special day with the most wonderful time of the year. One thing is for sure; it will sure be a memorable day!
