Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year. Happy couples are celebrating all around you and you’re surrounded by displays of affection.

Many couples get engaged on this special day, but is it unoriginal and overdone? In this blog, we discuss the pros and cons of getting engaged on Valentine’s Day:


You’ll never forget the date

There are so many dates to remember in a relationship, and if you’re known for forgetting important dates – this might be the perfect opportunity for you. 14 February will forever be lodged in your mind.


The ambience is already romantic

Hearts, teddy bears, flowers and jewellery will be on display almost everywhere you go – which will just make everything seem more romantic. And if you’re planning to propose at a restaurant, everything might be set up already (think candles, balloons, and flowers).


It will be easy to plan

There are so many specials and packages available during Valentine’s Day - whether it’s a spa special, a hotel deal, or something a bit more extreme like hot-air ballooning. Coming up with engagement ideas can be stressful, and over-planning can kill the magic, so it’s best to leave it to the professionals and go with a romantic package that won’t let you down.


It might not be expected

Since it’s a special day, you can plan a romantic date and get all dressed up without ‘giving anything away’. And since it’s such a memorable moment, you’ll probably want to document it and share it on social media. If you’re planning to propose on any other day, organising a romantic date might come across as suspicious if that’s not something you do often—which could ruin the surprise!



It might be predictable

If you’ve recently discussed getting engaged, or if you were just looking at rings together, then proposing on Valentine’s Day might not be the surprise you were hoping for.


It could get crowded

Since there are 100’s of couples celebrating, you’re not going to have a lot of privacy. It might get crowded at your favourite establishments, and most hotels or restaurants will require you to book way in advance.


Poor timing

Is this the right time for you? Or are you merely proposing on Valentine’s Day because it seems romantic? Many people feel pressured to pop the question on this day because they feel like it’s expected of them. Make sure you’re ready to get engaged instead of letting a calendar date pressure you.

We think the pros far outweigh the cons. If planned properly, it could be a romantic and memorable time to pop the question. We think a proposal should be just as special as the ring you’ve selected for your beloved. Make sure that the sentimental value of the ring is protected by taking out specialist engagement ring insurance with Q Report.
