Gondola Marriage Proposal


  • Experience a forty-five minute long ride in a traditional Italian-style gondola boat
  • Dine on a light antipasto of cheese, crackers and chocolates
  • Propose with an unforgettable message in a bottle

Proposal Overview

Transport yourselves to the canals of Italy with a gondola ride. Glide through the relaxing waters while you nibble on gourmet cheese, crackers and rich chocolates and experience true old-world romance while Italian music plays in the background. During your cruise the gondolier will slip the bottle in to the water, turn the boat around so the bottle appears on her side of the boat and create a story to convince her to pick it up. She’ll open the bottle to find your special message and that’s your cue to pop the question! This is a perfect Boston proposal idea for the summer.

  1. Meet your gondola at the exact location provided in your confirmation email
  2. After a time, your gondolier will discreetly slip your message in a bottle into the water and angle the gondola so your partner will find it
  3. If required, your partner will be encouraged to open the bottle and read the message
  4. After she reads the message, propose!
  5. Enjoy the remainder of your ride
