Getting married for the second time often means thinking long and hard about your dress. Keep in mind that you can do whatever you want, whether you want to wear a white princess dress or a sophisticated pantsuit. It's your wedding, so wear what makes you comfortable! Use the following tips to help make your decision.
Queen Victoria wore a white wedding dress to marry Prince Albert, resulting in a trend that has persisted. White wedding dresses traditionally symbolize purity, and there was debate about whether second-time brides could wear white for a long time. However, that debate is essentially over, as white has come to symbolize joy. Besides, most first-time brides are NOT virgins these days! If you want to rock a white wedding dress for your second wedding, go for it!
Tone And Theme
Whatever dress you decide on, ensure it goes with the tone and theme of your wedding. For example, you wouldn't wear a linen dress if your theme is black-tie! Find a dress that matches your personal style and create your wedding theme around it. It may be easier to plan your wedding once you have the dress situation figured out.
Despite the go-ahead with white wedding dresses, it is considered poor taste to wear a veil for a second wedding. Blusher veils that cover the face are traditionally for very young, first-time brides. Such veils are rarely worn anymore, with many brides opting for tiaras that include veils cascading down their backs. If your wedding is super-formal, you can use this veil option. A beautiful hat is another possibility, as is a lovely hair ornament or flower.
As a second-time bride, you likely have plenty of wedding planning experience. Use this experience to pick the dress you want and create the wedding of your dreams.
