New Year's Eve and kissing go hand in hand. Sharing the holiday and a new year with someone you love is something truly special, and has a different feeling to it than other holidays might. It's definitely a sign of commitment, but what about a proposal on New Year's Eve? It’s the ultimate promise on one of the most magical nights of the year. What better way to hold this moment forever than by taking a photo of it? When posting, you’ll need to have the best Instagram captions for New Year's proposal pics in your back pocket so that it all clicks — just like your relationship.
Whether you want your proposal to be private, in front of a ton of people, or with your family present, it'll be perfect because it's with who you love most in the world. To be in love is already beautiful in and of itself, and then to share the rest of your life with someone is on another level of relationship goals. To want to be with someone forever — through sick days on the couch, awkward family meetings, any rough patches, and the most blissful nights — is magical, and hopefully you can capture even just an ounce of that in your photo (and hopefully these captions can help, too).
