Christmas Eve and over the Christmas holidays is one of the most popular times to get engaged. Although I got engaged on Valentine’s Day, my second choice would have been around Christmas.
I love this time of year, everyone is full of festive cheer, twinkling lights, making time to catch up with old friends and of course cheesy Christmas movies! So as I am sat wrapping the final Christmas presents and with said cheesy movie on in the background, here is a last minute bit of inspiration if you are thinking of popping the question over the festive holidays with my top wedding proposals from French Wedding Style.
