Same Sex Proposal Tips from Ben Garelick Jewelers

Same sex marriage has been legal in every state in the U.S. for more than two years, marking a beautifully diverse modern idea of love and companionship. This has changed the traditional structure and protocol of the typical proposal. At Ben Garelick Jewelers in Buffalo, NY, we’ve got the answers to your most common questions about proposing to your special same-sex someone. Our goal is always to make your engagement and marriage experience stress-free!

Who Proposes?

There are no rules set in stone on who should do the proposing; there doesn’t even have to be an official proposal. No one knows your relationship with your partner better than you, so it is up to you and your partner to decide what seems right for your relationship. Typically, one partner will want to surprise the other by proposing with a grand romantic gesture. The other popular proposal is discussing with your partner in thoughtful conversation about engagement, then diving into wedding planning. Sometimes, only one partner will propose, sometimes they just so happen to propose at the same time and sometimes one partner proposes and the other partner shortly does the same. Again, that is for you and your partner to decide which would fit best in your relationship.

What about the wedding bands?

The last thing you want to do in any proposal is something out of obligation because you feel that is the social norm. If your partner isn’t the ring-wearing type, at Ben Garelcik Jewelers we offer a variety of options such as necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

Couples tend to both wear engagement rings, whether both couples proposed or not. Communication is key when deciding what rings you and your partner want to wear to symbolize your forever love and devotion to one another. You and your partner may decide to also use your engagement rings to double as wedding bands. Or, you may decide to have separate wedding bands. Your wedding bands don't have to match if you don't want them to, they can represent the individual's specific style. With more than 16 designers at Ben Garelick Jewelers, you can be sure we have a ring for every taste and style.

When it comes time to take your relationship with your partner to the next level through engagement, it is important to go with whatever feels natural, personal and meaningful to you both. Ben Garelick Jewelers is ready to help at every step of the way to spending a lifetime with the person you love most.
