Oh, Baby, it’s cold outside! What a perfect time to cuddle up to your loved one and ask them to spend forever with you! And with some of the best weather in the world during winter, South Africa pulls out all the spots for a beautiful winter proposal. Here are some ideas to whisk your partner off their feet this chilly season:
Winter Marriage Proposal ideas
Romantic fireside proposal:
Few things are more romantic than a cosy fire, blankets and a bottle of red wine or her favourite hot drink. There is no need to venture outside when it’s windy and cold – rather turn your living room into an ideal proposal spot. You can use candles, soft music, a roaring fire and rose petals to set up the room just right. You can picnic on the floor in front of the fire and neither of you even have to know how chilly it is outside. If you don’t have a fireplace at home, some restaurants have separate lounges with fireplaces that you could request for the room to be closed off to other guests and to have the room for yourselves. We can always help with venue ideas in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
Winter Warmer Accommodation Specials
Many places in South Africa run Winter Warmer specials on their accommodation. Winter is an ideal time for Game Reserves – brilliant game viewing, chilly early morning game drives with a cup of coffee in hand, roaring fires and crisp sunsets. We recommend keeping an eye out for great 2-for-1 deals and then spoiling your loved one with a weekend away in the bush.
Coastal hotels also run specials and some of the smaller beaches are often deserted in winter, leaving you to have the whole beach to yourselves. Nothing like a cold dip in the ocean to calm your nerves before popping the question.
Or pull on your ski boots and head to South Africa’s ski resort, Tiffindell, for a true winter feel. Making snow angels as your first act as an engaged couple sounds fun, no?
A Day At The Spa
A hot stone massage, a warm sauna and a glass of champagne in a fluffy dressing gown set the tone for a romantic winter proposal. A lot of spas offer a couple packages which means the two of you will be able to spend some quality time together while getting pampered. After all, a girl’s nails do have to look perfect once she is wearing the perfect ring.
Grab some blankets, your jackets and a bottle of bubbly and head to your favourite viewpoint. Sunsets in winter are usually crisp and clear with amazing colours. They also happen early enough for you two to still head to your favourite restaurant for a celebratory dinner!
