Make planning your second, third, or fifth wedding easy and fun with the following tips and tricks. This isn't your first rodeo, er, trip down the aisle, so you know how the process goes. However, you still might have a few questions, which hopefully the following tips answer! Have fun!
To Wear White Or Not To Wear White
A white wedding dress is not the symbol of virginity it used to be. Queen Victoria was the first woman to rock a white wedding dress, and it became a representation of innocence. Since this is simply not true anymore, feel free to wear white. If an ivory wedding dress or any other color appeals to you, go for it. Sarah Jessica Parker famously wore a black dress for her wedding to Matthew Broderick and looked amazing!
Perhaps you wish to stick with traditional wedding vows, and that's just dandy. Yet many second or third-time brides prefer to go a different route, whether they write their own vows or look up non-traditional options. The internet is loaded with vow ideas for couples who have been married before, and they are just as beautiful and wonderful as their "traditional" counterparts. Get as creative as you want!
Involving The Kiddies
Many second or third marriages equal children from previous unions. Involving the children in such weddings is an increasingly-popular trend that lets the younglings know they are loved and cherished. Blended family weddings can be absolutely beautiful, as they represent two groups of people coming together as a unit and starting a new life. Sand ceremonies, unity candles, and readings are just some of the way to involve "yours and mine" in your wedding. Another option is to ask them to be bridesmaids and groomsmen!
Enjoy planning your dream wedding--you deserve it!
