The joys and stresses of proposing the 2nd time

The joys and stresses of proposing the 2nd time

You may think that because you’ve already done it before, it’s like riding a bike so it will be easy. Well it may not be as easy, here’s a few things that you need to keep in mind when planning your 2nd proposal

  • Does the 2nd proposal need to be planned?
  • Does it have to be different than the first one?
  • Does it have to involve family and friends?

  • 1.25 carat solitaire diamond ring in red gold From USD 1.710
    (excl. VAT)
  • 0.30 carat solitaire ring in red gold with princess diamond From USD 930
    (excl. VAT)
  • 1.00 carat solitaire ring (half set) in red gold with side diamonds	From USD 3.060
    (excl. VAT)
  • 0.24 carat diamond design ring in white gold From USD 1.250
    (excl. VAT)

Does the 2nd proposal need to be planned?

Yes, we believe that it’s not because you have already been through the process before that this proposal shouldn’t be as considerate as the first. You have met a new partner and believe you want to spend the rest of your lives together and tie the knot, so there has to be a proposal.

Of course, if you and your beloved one like things to remain simple, then the proposal should reflect your way of life. But there has to be a special moment and place where the question is asked and the engagement ring is given as a symbol of your love for one another.

Does it have to be different than the first one?

Yes, it does, your partner and your relationship with your partner are different and therefore it is important that the proposal reflects you and your beloved instead of someone else. If you like funny or discreet proposals, it’s really up to you.

But repeating the first one just because it’s easy and feels comfortable is not the best way forward for this new adventure for the two of you. Nevertheless, it doesn’t have to be more grandiose or less important than the first, it simply needs to correspond to you and your way of living life.

Does it have to involve family and friends?

Yes and no, as that really depends on how close your ties to your families are, whether you have children or not and whether you prefer a more private proposal or not.

Today, just like there are wedding planners, there are engagement party planners. Therefore, if you like to celebrate and wish for everyone you know to be there the moment you pop the question, this engagement party idea may be the perfect option for you.

On the other hand, if you really want the first moment to be just you and your beloved, you need to respect that. You can always tell everyone and celebrate with everyone later.

At the end of the day, it’s your moment, it’s your proposal, it’s your new beginning, so just listen to your heart and enjoy every bit of it!
