Leap Year Proposals With Sundial Venues

28 Feb 2012

For the ladies planning on proposing this February 29th, Sundial Weddings offers three picture perfect country house wedding venue locations, perfect for popping the question. With just over a week to go before getting down on bended knee, choosing the right romantic setting is of utmost importance.

Much of what we do in life, whether we realize it or not, is seeped in tradition and the way in which we celebrate a wedding is possibly one of the oldest and most popular traditions we still value today. Whatever the style of the wedding, there is always an integral element of tradition somewhere; the bridal bouquet, the white dress and the veil amongst many other essential details all date back centuries. Other such traditions are leap year proposals. While it is customary for a man to propose to a woman, tradition has dictated for centuries that a woman could ask for a man's hand in marriage in a leap year. Rumour has it that there was even a penalty to pay for men refusing a woman's proposal.

Whatever the time of year, a proposal is a special time for any couple but popping the question can be somewhat daunting. Finding the right moment and the right place is almost as important as the question itself. Situated in beautiful gardens and stunning countryside, Sundial's Northamptonshire wedding venue, Highgate House, Surrey wedding venue Barnett Hill and Warwickshire wedding venue Woodside are all set in acres of rolling countryside and beautiful gardens, with intimate atmospheres, wonderful service and award-winning cuisine.

With an idyllic setting to tick all the right boxes, romance is most definitely at the top of the menu at every Sundial location this leap year. Each property offers overnight accommodation with a choice of individually decorated guest rooms and suites as well as award-winning dining options to celebrate a recent betrothal.

Many people find themselves motivated to both propose and arrange their wedding on significant, historical calendar dates and February 29th is no exception. Occurring just once every four years makes the date significant, and for ladies planning to propose, a setting that can match the sense of occasion is a must. With history adorning the walls and grandeur brimming to the rooftops, Sundial's three stately country house wedding venues offer the perfect opportunity to bring the age-old leap year tradition to life.
