We had planning a trip to Europe for over 1 year, our first time. We had just landed in Venice, Italy that early afternoon. After spending 2 hours looking for our hotel (what an experience that was),we wanted to wander the streets of Venice, relax and take it all in. My boyfriend on the other hand, had a different agenda

 

He wanted to go on a Gondola! When I found out it would have cost over over $150 USD, I wanted to wait....thought maybe we could find a better deal. After disappointment, My boyfriend was alittle stressed, then he began to act strange, very nervous, figet and began to fumble through his bag. At this point I still had no clue!

 

Now we've been together for eight years and I had never seen him like this. So we walked over to the "Porte Degli Scalzi Bridge", which over looks the Grand Canal (across from the train station). The sun was just starting to set, a light breeze in the air and My boyfriend started to tell me that he's been holding this for several months....................

 

Well he got down on one knee, held out this BEAUTIFUL antique designed ring and mumbled quickly "Will you marry me". I responded "Oh my god or Holy Crap". Then I said yes, with tears in my eyes.

 

I later found out he had bought the ring 4-5 months before our trip (buring a hole in his pocket). Everyone knew he was going to pop the question (Mom's, family, friend's, etc.) except me. I was shocked and no idea he was going to this. Venice will always hold a special place in my heart.

That is such an awesome story. I have been to Venice myself and absolutely loved it, and I can picture your story as I read it! Now I want to go back there.

Thanks Ladies! If you ever have the chance go to Venice with your hubby, leave the kids, dogs and in-laws at home. I must say it is the romantic place in the world.

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
