Engagement Diamond Ring Christmas

Best Wedding Proposal Story


Hurry Down the Chimney Tonite

Christmas season is a popular time of year to become engaged.

My husband and I have been married for 35 years, and we Baby Boomers were engaged for two before we married.  We got engaged over the Christmas holidays.  It really wasn’t a surprise, as we had picked out my diamond engagement ring together.  My oldest daughter and her husband became engaged at a Yankees game in the old Yankee Stadium.

Many couples today become engaged while on romantic cruises or weekend vacation getaways.  Enter to win the Best Wedding Proposal Story Contest by sharing your proposal story on and WIN up to $500.

Some of the most romantic weekend getaways exist in the most populated destinations in the US.  Here are a few to consider.

Needless to say, New York City is considered one of the most romantic spots in the U.S.  Whether you enjoy dinner in your hotel suite or dine at any one of the five star restaurants, the night is always young for lovers who seek solitude in a city that hosts millions of tourists each year.  Whether you take a carriage ride through Central Park, enjoy an opera or symphonic performance at Lincoln Center, or walk along Fifth Avenue during the evening hours; the city offers something for everyone.

Another favorite city is San Francisco. With its rolling hills, fantastic cuisine, and friendly people; San Francisco offers hotel stays that are sure to enhance your romantic side. Notable hotels are located in the Nob Hill area; and many others best views of the Bay and the city; or the downtown hotels that are close to cable cars, shopping, restaurants, and theaters.

Las Vegas, of course, is not to be forgotten. Time will stand still at this resort destination.  With a myriad of hotels to choose from you can enjoy your time here without having to worry about time, because there are no clocks in the casinos.

With great weather year round (hot, but always dry), you can wile away the early morning hours at the hotel’s pool and enjoy the evening attending a fabulous show or visit lady luck at the casino.

Not too far away from me is Lake Placid, New York.  Lake Place once hosted the Winter Olympics. Among the many things you might like to do is to take a walk to the neighboring town of Lake Placid, only two miles away. Here you will find shops along Main Street and you can gift shop or stop for lunch.  Swimming, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are some of the activities available.

Once you’ve set your date, you can start planning and looking for personalized gifts and wedding favors for your bridal party!

  1. I can’t find the place on your blog to post a comment for the wedding proposal giveaway!! I’m going to post it here and hope this is the correct spot.

    My husband proposed to me in a hotair balloon! He told me we weere driving to the park for an early morning walk, but instead drove me to the hotair balloon launching site. When we were high in the air, he got down on one knee and proposed. It was absolutely a surprise and a delight. How could I say no??
