Weddings are a special time for a couple who are in love and ready to start life together as one. Second marriages have become as common as first marriages. There are a number of differences in wedding etiquette between the first and second marriages. One of those differences is the engagement ring. When one is planning a second marriage, it is important to consider the etiquette regarding the second marriage engagement ring.
Second wedding engagement rings don’t have to be an awkward occasion. Second marriages are often the result of the couple’s living together, so each one knows each other quite well, such as their likes and dislikes. Since a second wedding is usually between more mature couples, they are more likely to be able to discuss the type of rings they prefer. The bride often discusses what type of ring she likes, even matching rings. It is important that the couple does not choose those that are similar to the first marriage. Also, since couples are more mature, they understand the need to be sensitive and understanding about buying an engagement ring that they can afford. If a woman wants to be surprised, even if it is her second marriage, talk to friends and family about the type of ring she would prefer.
One way to ensure that the engagement ring is not similar to an old one is to choose a diamond that is brighter than the first one. Glitter and glitter are what establish the beauty of a diamond. The diamond must be of high quality and well cut. You can also get a ring of a different shape than the previous ring, as well as a different configuration. One can get a gold or platinum band, or a personally designed band. The band should be made of the same precious metal as the engagement ring, so that they complement each other. If the bride had a previous diamond engagement ring, a different stone can be added to the ring, such as a diamond in the middle of a sapphire. Any diamond should have been independently graded and certified for authenticity. A branded diamond means that the company meets high quality standards.
Planning your wedding for the second time can be as romantic and exciting as the first wedding. Brides will appreciate a more refined and elegant style for the ring. However, they often prefer larger and brighter diamond rings. They are more likely to get a bigger and better ring than the one from the first marriage.
If you’re young and just starting out in life when you first get married, budgets are usually tight to avoid that extravagant dream wedding. When you get married the second time, it is still a new beginning in life; however, this time there is more money, allowing for more flexibility. On the special day of your wedding, you will share your joy and love with family and friends. Wearing the engagement ring of your dreams can make the occasion even more memorable.
