Tips for Choosing a Wedding Dress for a Second Marriage

How to select a second wedding dress

Sometimes the thrill of a new love and fresh start can be overshadowed by the awkwardness of planning a second wedding. As a second time bride, you may find yourself concerned with having a pleasant wedding but without raising eyebrows. You may be worried about what type of wedding gowns are appropriate for you. There are many different things to consider when selecting a second wedding dress.

If this is your second wedding, but your fiance's first marriage then you have a lot more freedom with your choice of wedding gown. It is usually considered completely appropriate to wear a traditional wedding gown if it is the first marriage for either the bride or groom. Another thing to consider is if this is your second marriage, but your first wedding. If you did not have a wedding with guests the first time you married, then a traditional bridal gown is generally considered appropriate.

If you and your fiance both previously had weddings, then your wedding dress should either be simple or slightly nontraditional. Options for you would be to choose an ivory or pink gown instead of the traditional white, or you could go with a white dress and just keep it simple.

Below you will find a variety of wedding dresses to choose from, one is sure to suit your particular situation.

      These are all beautiful! I love traditional white wedding dresses. Mine is ivory (I'm too pale for white) with Swarovski crystals and a lace-up back. Can't wait til the big day!! Great lens!

      I liked the first wedding dress in the intro of the lens, although it was really tough deciding on one dress. Great lens!

      My daughter just got married for the second time and she chose a formal wedding gown. They have been living together for awhile and it is his first marriage so it was very appropriate and she was a radiant bride. It's the bride wedding and what she feels comfortable wearing is what she should indeed wear.
