Ways to say "Will you marry me?" in Italian

Will you……?

Falling in love in a foreign country or just wanting to propose in the romantic language of love can be tricky. The simplest, most straight forward way to ask someone to marry you is to say Ti amo, vuoi sposarmi, meaning I love you, will you marry me, and pronounced "Tee amoh", voy spoh-sar-mee? Or you could say Ti amo, mi vuoi sposare, which is basically the same and is pronounced Tee amoh, mee voy spoh-sar-mee, according to Dreamdiscoveritalia.

Ti amo……!

If you want to be a little bit more poetic you could aim for Ti amo, vuoi passare il resto della tua vita con me, meaning I love you, will you spend the rest of your life with me and pronounced Tee amoh, voy pass-sare eel reh-sto del-lah soo-ah vee-tah con meh?

You could also embellish your proposal with some compliments or other phrases to oil the wheels! Instead of Ti amo, meaning I love you, you could say Ti amo più di qualsiasi cosa, meaning I love you more than anything and pronounced Tee amoh pe-oo dee qwal-see-ah-see coh-za.

Flowers? For me?! You shouldn’t have!

Sei la donna dei miei sogni, you are the woman of my dreams, pronounced Seh lah don-nah dey mee-yay son-nyee. Or if you’re asking a man, you’d say Sei l’uomo dei miei sogni pronounced Seh loo-oh-moh dey mee-yay son-nyee

Voglio stare con te per il resto della mia vita, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, pronounced Vol-lee-oh star-eh con the perr eel reh-stoh del-lah mee-ah vee-tah.

Happy ever after…..!

Use any of these phrases and you will be one step closer to living happily ever after! But if you really want to push the boat out here are two final, slightly more complicated but highly romantic suggestions.

Sei la mia migliore amica e il mio unico vero amore. Ti chiedo di accettare il mio amore, il mio nome e tutto quello che sono. Fai di me l’uomo più felice del mondo diventando mia moglie.

Which means – You are my best friend and my one true love. I ask you to accept my love, my name, and everything that I am. Make me the happiest man in the world by becoming my wife.
