It’s beautiful! Congrats!! Maybe not even plan out the actual proposal and just do it spontaneously at a beautiful site while on the trip? Or if you have any special trips planned while you’re over there that might be special for the both of you. Either way, I’m sure it will be absolutely unforgettable 🙂

That ring is lovely! What a great opportunity to propose somewhere so memorable! I agree with @arametta127 about maybe going the spontaneous route. 

Or maybe before you go, see if there’s any cool Italian traditions about proposing… suggest you & her try this (vaguely described) cool Italian custom & then *bam* proposal!

However you do it – Good luck!!

That’s a beautiful ring and a proposal in Italy? I don’t care how/where you do it, it’s going to be magical! I’m so excited for both of you!

@lybarra:  that sounds like a great idea. I love how you’ve “thrown her off” by telling her you wanted to wait… and now you’ll be surprising her on vacation! In Italy! so romantic… 🙂

Ahh so cute to do it in Italy!! I would suggest doing it by the Trevi fountain in Rome, because I’m sure its what she’ll be wishing for when she throws her coin in and you could be behind her when she turns around to make her wish come true!! haha I’m so corney! hahaha Best of luck and Congrats!!

Gorgeous ring!  Is there some way you can get your friends who are traveling with you to film and photograph the proposal?  Fiance had his best friend sneakily filming our proposal, and it’s been such a cool video to show people after the fact!

I wonder if you can call wherever you are staying ahead of time and set the room up with flowers or the like. My Fiance proposed really low-key, nothing spectacular and it was just us. I loved it that way.
