The holiday season is a beautiful time, especially in the Bay Area. It is also an incredibly romantic season, which is why this season is “engagement season.” Many couples are moved by the excitement and romance of the season to make the commitment to tie the knot. Indeed, we have seen plenty of proposals on our yacht cruises during the holidays! What could be more romantic that proposing with all of San Francisco Bay as your backdrop?

December is Popular for Proposals

Here are a few of the key reasons so many couples get engaged over the holidays:

Vacation Time
Couples spend more time celebrating together from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, and may also be spending part of the holidays with family. Taking advantage of the festive feel to this season is the prime reason proposals happen! You may also have the chance to celebrate your engagement with a few days off to spend time together, perhaps between Christmas and New Years Day.
Another benefit of proposing during the holidays is that your family and friends may be around to celebrate with you. At any other time of year, you might be forced to wait for months until you can share your engagement joy with loved ones, especially if you live many miles away from your relatives.
Endless Romantic Scenarios
When you propose around the holidays, you have a seemingly endless array of activities and scenes in which to pop the question. You might choose a sleigh ride in the mountains or a visit to a beach on the Bay Area’s scenic coastline. Another option would be to begin your engagement aboard a romantic dinner cruise around San Francisco Bay. Other possible scenarios include when you are shopping in Union Square, during a family holiday dinner, or while you are ice skating together.
Longer Engagement
One of the benefits of a holiday season marriage proposal is that it may afford you a little more time to plan the wedding. You have all of 2019 in which to set a date. Holiday proposals often lead to Spring Weddings, but you might choose a glorious Autumn wedding to enjoy a longer engagement. Whatever season you prefer, you will have ample time to select and send invitations, choose vendors, secure a desirable venue (we await your call!) and plan a honeymoon.
The holiday season is always delightful in the Bay Area, and your marriage proposal will mark this year’s season as one you will always remember.
