What to wear for a second wedding?

This is my second wedding.  I'm not sure what to wear.  A wedding gown doesn't really feel right, although it's a little tempting as I didn't do it last time (don't think the family would feel right about it- "more sensible to wear something you can wear again", so probably not.) We are getting married on the foreshore in a pavilion, so it's not on the sand - in October in Australia which means it will be warm.  Would love some suggestions and maybe some pictures of what other people have worn.  At this stage I have simply no clues!!

I say, if you're tempted to wear a wedding dress, DO IT!  It may be your second wedding, but it is your FIRST wedding to your FI!  Make everything new again and do whatever you really want!! :)

I agree with Boca and Jan, if you're tempted to wear a wedding dress, definitely do it! Even if it was your fifth marriage, it's your wedding and you can do whatever you want!


These are some really pretty "beachy" dresses, they are all by Demetrios from the Destination Romance line:

OMG - who's wedding is this? Exactly. If you want a dream dress which you were denied before - why should you be denied now? This should be a happy time :)

Honey - Just because its a sceond wedding doesnt mean that it is any less important than your first!! It actually probably better because your a little older and wiser than the last.


 


If you want to rock a wedding dress - rock it! - wear what YOU WANT - not what you think other people think you should wear  -look gorgeous for you and your man xx

Please, please, please wear a gown if you want to!  Especially if you regret not doing it last time.  I can't tell you how much my MIL regrets not wearing a traditional white gown (she got married after my FI was born, so she thought it was wrong to wear white).  She ended up wearing teal, and to this day she looks back on it and wishes she hadn't :(  So, three words: WHATEVER YOU WANT!! :)

I wore a full on wedding dress for my first wedding and I chose to do it again for my 2nd wedding. and I never regretted it, I loved it more than my first one and I figured why not, these are the pictures i will cherish forever and show my children. My second marriage was the one I was always meant to have, so as far as I was concerned the first one never happened lol!

You could wear a white maxi dress or a simplier wedding dress. http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/edressme_2143_286936252

Miss M, I love the sentiment of " It actually is probably better because you're a little older and wiser than the last time."  (being a second wedding) 


Thank you all for your great ideas and positive advice.  I also liked the idea of trying the bridesmaids dresses, so might give that a go too.  I'm inspired and am actually heading off to the local Bridal Expo this weekend.  Haven't tried on any dresses yet, but this might help me get some ideas - and maybe even some courage.

I am a second time bride as well, and I'm wearing a wedding gown for this wedding, too. Loved the message in the video MrsAmandaKurtz!

MrsB2Be is 100% right. I am exactly the same. I'm going all out fro wedding number 2. This is the REAL one thats going to last a lifetime. The one you worked to get to. Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in and dont worry about the judgement of others. The last thing you want on this special day is to feel like you didn't do it properly.


Good luck with your decion and lety us know what your doing :)

I say wear whatever you want, you are only going to marry your FI once and be able to wear the big dress - if that's what you want - do it!
