Second Marriage Wedding Dress and EtiquetteWritten by Jean Bachcroft
Just as with your first marriage, your second marriage is a new beginning with your fiance. So it makes sense that many of traditional rituals and rules of etiquette apply. But which ones?
There is no reason why you should not register for gifts, have a shower, or wear a white, full-length gown at altar. Whether or not you will choose any of these options is now considered strictly a matter of personal preference dictated by your style.
Charting a new course
When it comes to ceremony, one of questions that experienced brides-to-be frequently ask themselves is "Do I really want to do everything same or do something completely different?" If you were married in a civil ceremony first time, maybe itís time to consider a church ceremony, complete with flower girls, a ring bearer, and attendants.
Because you are certainly all-grown-up now, this is your chance to plan your wedding exactly way you want it to be, without any unnecessary consideration for wishes of parents. However, you will want to discuss your feeling and carry out planning with groom.
On other hand, if formality and style of your first wedding did suite your taste, you should feel free to repeat those elements. Nevertheless, since this is a time to look toward future, rather than returning to past, donít get bogged down with history. Using same reception site or adding same personal touches would be in poor taste, so should be avoided.
Large ceremony or small The size of your wedding party, as well as number of guests you will invite, is entirely up to you. With regard to ceremony itself, rules of etiquette would be same as if you were marrying for first time.
If you are planning to invite more than 50 guests, arrange to have attendants (groomsmen or ushers) on hand. If at all possible, you will want to have one attendant for every 50 guests.
