What could be better than a big, Italian wedding? Well a big, Italian proposal of course. So check out our Italia-inspired ideas on how to pop the question.
Venetian love: Italy boasts some of the worlds most romantic cities, and none more so than Venice. Take to the water in a gondola for a romantic trip along the waterways. Little will she know the other two tourists on your boat are singers until, as you near the special bridge which displays the message Will you marry me?, they start to serenade the two of you with your favourite song and you drop to one knee. Flowers are thrown from the bridges as you pass underneath and you soak up the celebration!
Perfect pizza: You can’t get much more Italian than an authentic pizza. If your other half is a foodie then why not create a special and unique pizza proposal? Arrange the toppings into a heart shape with the ring box in the centre and as it is placed in front of your partner whisper those special words.
Hope and love: Embrace an Italian wedding tradition and pull together a trousseau hope chest originally filled with a collection of household items and keepsakes for the bride and groom. Instead, fill your chest with special keepsakes from your relationship: love letters, tickets from dates, dried flowers and bury the ring box inside before presenting your unsuspecting partner with the chest.
Love story: Whisk your romantic bride-to-be off to Verona and the courtyard beneath Juliets balcony where Romeo is said to have wooed his lover. Let her scan through the hundreds of love notes and messages written on the wall until she finds a special message from you.
