I heard on the radio, that the most popular time to get engaged is between December 14 and February 14.

Who all got engaged in this time frame?

I did not.

    He asked me on Devember 19th 2017. He was going to originally do it on christmas day because its my favourite day of the year. December 19th is his moms birthday! He chose that day because 28 years ago my father in law proposed to my mother in law on his (FIL) mother's birthday and my fiance wanted to follow suit! I hope in the future our kids follow this!

    My fiance and I got engaged at the end of June. He had the ring for months before that, and was waiting for nicer weather to propose outdoors. I know many who have gotten engaged over that time period though, definitely the peak time!

    There isn't a popular time per say tp get engaged. There may be popular holidays though that couples will be proposd on. Christmas, birthdays, Valentine's day, anniversary (time you met), etc.

    We decided to get married in November, but he surprised me and got down on one knee and did an official proposal on December 12th. It’s kinda nice to have other people to share the joy with; I don’t have to worry about talking too much wedding because everyone is!

    We got engaged June 29th, 2017 at the top of the high roller in Las Vegas. As in 2014 the first year we were together he took me to Vegas for my birthday and took me on the high roller and made it memorable by sweeping me off my feet and kissing me at the very top during the day. He topped it by proposing to me at night. He had the ring for awhile too and even got it through security without me knowing. I'm glad he proposed when he did. We have 3 friends on our wedding party (2 of which are a couple) get engaged over Christmas a day apart. I know someone else that proposed to their fiance on Christmas as well.

    We got engaged November 6, 2017. Apparently he had the ring for a while and was just waiting for the right time. When I came home miserable that day, he just asked me. It was such a random momentit took me a while to take it in. Lol

    My FH had planned to propose on my birthday - November 23rd but the ring didn’t come in time so he proposed on Christmas Day after we had already done gifts and were about to eat dinner with my family.

    We got engaged December 25, 2016. Apparently he was going to propose on vacation in January or something originally but was afraid of either losing the ring or me finding it. I don't mind at all that he proposed on Christmas or during the most popular time. I think he did it because it felt right.

    My FH refused to propose on a holiday (xmas, NYE, Valentine’s Day), he said he wanted to make it ultra special for both of us. So he surprised me by proposing on our 6-year anniversary, in April.

    We got engaged on December 26th because of something big that happened on that day for us. If it wasn't an important date he probably would have waited until our anniversary in April

    Dec 21st!

    I dont know his rationale behind the date, guess it just felt right. But definitely made the holidays more magical! We were talking about how it brought back some of the magic like how christmas felt as kids. ❤❤

    I got engaged December 13! We were in distance for a few months due to schooling so my last few days there he flew out and relived our first date, even rained like it did, then he proposed in the spot we had our first kiss.

    It makes sense. Vacations are popular times to propose and lots of people literally only get time off this time of year. With how expensive the holidays often are too, making the ring a gift instead of having to buy twice makes things affordable. It's very practical.

    I was the same way! Although, his proposal didn't end up being creative, but it wasn't close to a holiday or other special day at all.

    October 20. So we fall out of that range. But I threatened FH that if he proposed to me on another eventful day (holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) that I’d tell him no. Lol. I know it’s kinda rude, but I gave him warning. I just wanted him to be creative and I wanted our engagement to be it’s own special day.

    I didn't get engaged in December (We got engaged in June).

    I have always said I didn't want a fall/December proposal because:

    - Both our birthdays are in the fall

    - Christmas.


    I figured there was enough stuff to celebrate around then.

    However, every single one of our friends seems to have gotten engaged in December. I can't think of anyone who didn't actually.
