While you’re still sipping hot cocoa and reveling in the remains of the Holiday magic, now could be the perfect time to start planning your proposal. What better way to kick off 2018 than with the one you love most? We’ve selected our favorite, most romantic ideas for a New Years Eve Engagement in North Carolina, just for you!
Skating with the Stars
Ring in the new year – on ice! This year at Beech Mountain, you can ice skate under the mountain stars, hand in hand (or mitten to mitten). The cozy ski lodge will play music for skaters and will host a firework show at midnight – what a perfect way to propose!
Rise and Shine
Start the new year with the rising sun. From the mountains to the sea, NC has some of the most beautiful sunrises on the face of the planet. For a truly romantic, unique engagement, travel to the mountain tops or the coast of the Atlantic to start the first day of 2018 with your betrothed!
Why drop the ball when you can raise the roof?
Treat your love like royalty with a night in the Queen City! Join friends in the park with food trucks, fireworks, and music while raising the Charlotte crown to celebrate the new year. Dine at a rooftop bar that overlooks the city or huddle under a blanket in the grass – both are easy spots for a hidden photographer to capture the moment!
Pop the question – and the bottles!
The best part of a New Year’s engagement is the timing! Right when everyone expects a New Year’s kiss – BAM! There you are on one knee with an engagement ring more brilliant than all the NYC fireworks. For a fun, close-knit proposal, get your friends to throw a NYE party and celebrate with confetti and champagne as soon as you hear “YES!”
Wood you marry me?
If you’re in the Triangle area, you simply can’t miss the iconic Raleigh Acorn Drop. The City of Oaks celebrates New Year’s in style with live music, rides, and so much more! A DIY fair starts in the afternoon, and the party kicks off at 7pm. Check out Downtown Raleigh’s food, music and entertainment before gathering on Fayetteville St for fireworks at midnight! The right time for the big question? Atop the ferris wheel of course!
From the cities to the mountains or the Carolina coast, NC can shine even brighter than NYC for your New Years Eve Engagement! Planning to propose on NYE? Stop in to see our pre-set engagement rings!
