What is the Best Time of Year to Propose?

Christmas and New Year’s may be the best-known times for proposals, but together those dates only represent 16% of all engagements. That means 84% of engagements happen throughout the rest of the year!

Whether you want to propose in a winter wonderland or by the light of a summer campfire, every season is the right season for love. No matter when you decide to propose, it’s vital to make sure it’s an occasion she will never forget.

Make it Meaningful

What matters most for your own proposal is picking a time of year that is right for you as a couple. Not sure which season is best? Here’s what each Colorado season has to offer lovers.

  • Spring Proposals. From brilliantly colored flowers to lush green gardens, everything bursts to life in the spring, including your love. The symbolism is inescapable. The new life you see around you perfectly reflects the new life the two of you will soon begin together as one! All that beauty creates a lovely backdrop for a proposal. Imagine riding off into the sunset with your beloved on a private horseback ride at  C Lazy U dude ranch after a truly unique proposal.
  • Summer Proposals. Summer vacations in particular offer couples a relaxed and romantic opportunity to get engaged in a special locale. Whether it’s on a blanket at your favorite beach or watching the fireworks explode on the 4th of July, summer can be the perfect time to get down on bended knee. Take advantage of the beautiful Colorado sunset and propose at the top of the Elitch Gardens Ferris Wheel at dusk.
  • Fall Proposals. There’s nothing cozier than warm fires and bulky sweaters. While fall lacks the dazzle of the upcoming holidays, it still offers many ideas for unique proposals. The foliage, mountain, and lake of Maroon Bells near Aspen offer up a gorgeous backdrop to any proposal. Also, if you propose in the fall, you’re likely to be one of the few couples doing so all the attention will be on you!
  • Winter Proposals. Imagine proposing to the love of your life under the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree or after a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. The wintertime is chock full of holiday magic, so why not utilize some of that magic to make your proposal one for the books. Need an incredibly romantic idea? Take your pick of one of Colorado’s winter sleigh rides, snuggle under a cozy blanket and propose while riding through still forests and open meadows.
