Here's our top tips on how to take yes to YES! by adding fireworks into your Christmas proposal.
Selecting the Perfect Location
Choosing the right location can make or break your fireworks proposal. Consider these key things when choosing yours.
Sentimental Significance: Consider locations that hold sentimental value for both you and your partner. Think about places where you shared your first date, where you had memorable experiences, or where you both feel a strong connection.
Scenic and Romantic Settings: Look for picturesque spots that exude romance and charm. A snowy hilltop with panoramic views, a beautiful beach under the starry sky or a cosy cabin with a crackling fireplace can create a magical atmosphere and really elevate your proposal.
Wherever you choose, we recommend looking for a more private experience. Choose secluded spots away from crowds to make it feel more intimate and personal. Cosy corners in parks or gardens, a private rooftop deck, a rented cabin, or a tranquil lakeside setting can be great options.
Local Attractions and Landmarks: Explore nearby landmarks or iconic places that are visually stunning. Historical sites, elegant bridges, or waterfront locations might provide the perfect backdrop for your proposal. Some cities have iconic spots known for their beauty and charm, making them ideal for such special occasions just make sure you check local laws and regulations regarding setting off fireworks so your special occasion doesn't end up becoming a run in with the local authorities.
Consider Logistics: While choosing the location, consider the logistics such as accessibility, parking availability, and timing. Ensure that the spot is easily accessible and that you have a contingency plan in case of unexpected circumstances.
Planning Your Firework Display
To make your Christmas proposal display truly special you need to make sure you plan it meticulously.
Timing is Key
One of the most crucial aspects of orchestrating a memorable firework display is timing, starting with choosing the right time for your display. Sunset in winter can be a great time as not only are winter sunsets stunning, you can make the most of the darkening sky and then still have the rest of the evening to celebrate together. A winter sunset display will also normally falls within permissible hours, meaning you'll stick to local regulations around noise restrictions.
Create an Engaging Sequence
A great display uses fireworks that vary in size, colour, and effects. We've broken down the best way to phase your display and the kinds of fireworks you'd want to include:
Opening Act: Begin with smaller, quieter fireworks like fountains or sparklers to set the scene. Use gold or silver sparklers to draw attention and build anticipation.
Build-Up: Progress to medium-sized fireworks, introducing a range of effects such as colour-changing peonies, swirling crossettes, and crackling mines. These fireworks should intensify the visual impact and sound gradually.
Mid-Show Highlights: Include unique fireworks like Roman candles or multi-shot cakes that offer a variety of effects. Consider colourful and bold aerial displays such as chrysanthemums or willows with glitter to add vibrancy.
Building the Climax: Build up to the finale with larger, more dramatic fireworks that demand attention. Utilise thunderous barrages or aerial shells that burst into multiple colours, filling the sky with light, colour and wonder.
Grand Finale: No firework display is complete without a great finale. Select multi-shot barrages or a synchronised set of aerial shells, choreographed to light up the sky with cascading colours and loud bangs, leaving a lasting impression on the start of your new life together.

Capture the Moment
Don't let the memories fade. Arrange for a photographer or videographer to discreetly capture your proposal and the fireworks. This way, you'll have stunning visuals to cherish and relive this unforgettable moment. Just make sure to check that your chosen professional has experience in capturing firework displays as they aren't the easiest things to capture well if you're not used to them.
Watch the Weather
Keep a close watch on the weather forecast to make sure you've got a clear sky for the fireworks and you aren't going to be rained on. A soggy and cold fiancé isn't going to be the happiest person.
Sharing the Moment
To make your proposal even more special, share the joyous occasion with your family and friends by organising a post-proposal celebration. Arrange for an intimate gathering or a small party to celebrate your engagement together and share the love with everyone important to you both.

It's a breathtaking way to symbolise the start of a new chapter in your lives. So, from all of us here at Epic Fireworks, we wish you lots of love and happiness in your future marriage.
