20 of the best surprise holiday proposal photos ever (and what to expect for your own proposal!)
by Stephanie

It's that time of the year. Cozy sweaters, fireside cuddling, hot chocolate, family time, and snow days... it's no wonder that this romantic season is one of the most popular times of the year for a proposal! If you're hoping for a diamond on your finger rather than presents under the Christmas tree this year (or maybe you can have both, why not?) then there's a few things you need to know.

  • Getting proposed to is awesome
  • You'll probably cry, even if you have fair warning
  • You won't be able to stop looking at your finger at least 3 months
  • Choose when to tell friends and family wisely -- because once you do, wedding planning officially starts!

I'll be honest -- there's not much you can do to prepare for your holiday proposal besides keep your nails manicured... just in case. So instead, why not dream of the big moment by checking out these oh-so-romantic winter proposals below?
