Planning For Your
You are planning your second wedding and are not sure about etiquette
and what is or is not acceptable, right? The truth is that the second
time around can be just as memorable and special as the first. Here
are some different tips to help you make your second wedding a day to
When planning for your second wedding use heartfelt, common sense before
announcing your new engagement. Some couples who have previously been
married may have children and previous family members who need to be
informed personally of your new future. Inform them first before announcing
it in a newspaper.
Also think before registering for gifts at department stores. When registering
for your second wedding, think about the things you need, as a couple.
You may already have items that would commonly be bought for first time
marriages, such as towels and dishes. Instead think about registering
for those things that will help you bring your new home together, such
as new curtains, bedding or items you can use to remodel the home that
youíre moving into.
Many years ago, attire for a previously married bride meant absolutely
no white. That is not the case anymore. When planning your second wedding,
if you decide you want to wear a flowing white gown, itís considered
perfectly acceptable. One thing to avoid is a veil, which represents
virginity. Instead of a veil, think about adorning your head with a
crown or tiara or a beautiful new hairstyle. Whichever you choose, keep
in mind that although it is a second marriage, you can feel and look
just as beautiful as you did the first time.
When choosing a destination for your second wedding, some couples choose
to make it different from the first by having a small ceremony with
a huge reception, inviting friends and family on a trip with marriage
in mind or having a surprise wedding, by sending invitations out for
a birthday party or holiday event and instead being prepared to get
married. You can also just go with a traditional church wedding. Whichever
you choose, make the decision together. After all, you are committing
yourselves to each other and both of you should be happy with the decision.
If children are involved from previous marriages, let them know that
they also are an important part of your second wedding. Rather than
the ceremony joining a man and woman together, you will be joining families.
Why not include the children in the ceremony? Let your son walk you
down the aisle to give you away, have your daughter be an honorary attendant
or let the younger children be a miniature bride and groom. The important
thing is to make the children feel welcome in this new union, letting
them feel that it is not just a marriage of man and wife, but of the
family as a whole.
Although second weddings can be done the same as a first time wedding,
let this be your opportunity to make it different while keeping it sacred.
Make it known to everyone that this is the man you have chosen to spend
the rest of your life with and your two families are now to be joined
