However, if you want to start off 2018 the right way with an NYE proposal, there are some things to consider. For instance, with New Year’s only a couple of days away, hopefully you have a plan. Even more importantly, hopefully you’ve picked out a ring! In case you don’t have everything squared away for your NYE proposal, we’re here to help.

The Midnight Champagne Toast
A classic way to ask for her hand in marriage on New Year’s Eve is in the midnight champagne toast. While it may be tempting to nestle the perfect solitaire engagement ring inside her glass, definitely do NOT do this! Not only will the ring ruin the champagne, it’s terribly cliche. Unless her dream NYE proposal involves accidentally swallowing some diamonds, the best way to handle the midnight champagne toast is to write a toast to her. With a little bit of planning and reflecting, you can make sure you cover all the reasons she’s the perfect companion. Not only will this make for a great proposal, it will make her the center of attention. Raise a glass to her, then drop down on a knee and show her the ring to start the New Year off right!
The Quiet NYE Proposal
While millions of people will be celebrating New Year’s Eve out in public, this doesn’t mean you have to make your proposal a spectacle. In fact, a quiet NYE proposal can be every bit as memorable. Whether you’ve decided to cook your best dish or call her favorite take out spot, make sure you make the evening about her. When it comes to proposing, the important things to get right are not necessarily midnight fireworks but simply making sure she’s the focus. In fact, after all the research you’ve done in preparing your ring budget and learning about ring styles, you know she’ll love the 14k rose gold engagement ring. But, if you create an evening around her favorite dinner with a diamond ring proposal after, she’ll be telling your engagement story for years to come.
