Alyssa Gugliotti wearing Vera Wang in Glamour magazine

A few years ago, Glamour magazine ran a recipe for “engagement chicken,” saying several readers had cooked it for their boyfriends and soon after received a wedding proposal. Alyssa Gugliotti was given a copy of the recipe and filed it away in a cookbook. Fast forward to last June. Gugliotti, 26, who works at Marlo Marketing Communications, made the “engagement chicken” for her boyfriend Lyle Stevens and - bingo! - he popped the question two days later. Gugliotti promptly posted the news on her company's blog and Glamour got in touch. Now, she and three other gals who made the chicken dish are featured in a Glamour photo spread, all dressed in Vera Wang gowns. “I made the chicken on Wednesday and he proposed on Friday,” said Gugliotti.“But he told me he already had the ring before I made the chicken.” The couple's getting married in September.
