Two Amazing Winter Proposal Ideas
Now that you know why the winter season is the perfect time to propose, let’s take a look at some romantic ways to pop the question.
Salerno Light Festival
During the holiday season, festive lights pop up everywhere, and some people really go all out.
Each year during the Christmas holidays, the city of Salerno organizes its unique Le Luci d'Artista event with light shows and installations along the streets and public squares, creating a magical atmosphere and attracting thousands of visitors.
Every single part of Salerno is enveloped in a special magic when "Luci d'Artista" - meaning Artists' Lights - is lit. The whole city is a riot of LED-powered illuminations.
Even with a lot of planning actual marriage proposals are spontaneous and emotionally charged.
There are two ways that you can use the lights in your winter proposal idea. First, you can use them as a romantic backdrop once you get down on one knee.
Then, you can stop at any location that seems romantic enough. It might also be a good idea to take a look at the lights beforehand to ease your nerves about finding the perfect spot.
The second way to use lights in a proposal is to have them spell out a light message.
Special tips: The photographs taken during this moment capture the genuine reactions of both partners. Plan a photo shooting with an expert photographer who knows how to shoot at night and against the lights. otherwise, you risk just having lots of dark or blurry photos. The experience and expertise a photographer bring can turn a simple proposal into a breathtaking visual story.
