The history and tradition of leap year wedding proposals

Did you know 2024 is a leap year? When it comes to weddings and proposals, a leap year carries a large amount of significance and tradition. On 29th February women get down on one knee and propose to their other half.

The tradition of leap year proposals is said to have several roots. One being that Queen Margaret of Scotland passed a law in 1288 declaring that women could propose once per year on the 29th of February. In the event that the proposal was refused, he had to pay a fine! This involved paying for a new gown, and gloves or alternatively, giving her a kiss. While there was no record of this law ever actually being passed it is a great way to create a unique and memorable proposal date. 

No matter who popped the question, where or how, our marquee hire team in Edinburgh have helped hundreds of happy couples celebrate in style under the elegance of a wedding marquee.
