A tradition stolen from the Italians
One of the happiest moment of a couple is the day in which the groom ask to his bride, if she wants to spend their life together, maybe sealing the proposal with an engagement ring. Sometimes, the ring is given during the engagement party. According to the tradition, the colour of the bride’s dress is white, and the groom has to do the proposal kneeling, because this is a kind of gesture which conveys respect. Every woman wishes a proposal on the knees, like in romantic movies.
The custom, for the American couples, is that the proposal happens during the Christmas holidays (from the Thanksgiving onwards), for there to be the occasion in which they can do the announcement to their families,and plan the date of the wedding day.
There also many italian couples (and not only) that have copied this tradition.
