When it’s not your first time tying the knot, there are many questions that many of our brides think about. There are definitely some details that aren’t as clear as they may have been the first time around.
Is it okay to have a big wedding?
It depends on you. If you both had big weddings fairly recently, you may not want to go through the whole planning for another big one, rather go for something more intimate. In some cases one of the partners has never been married before and would like to celebrate with a big affair, and that’s absolutely fine too. We find that this is an important decision to be made together right after your engagement, that way all of your family and friends can be informed when they ask about the details of your day.
Can we have a religious ceremony?
This is something that needs to be discussed with your preferred officiant, as each religion has different terms and requirements. In the case they won’t allow it, there are lots of wonderful civil celebrants who don’t restrict any marriage based on preference or previous relationships.
Can the bride wear white?
Of course! It’s your day and if you want to wear white, don’t let anyone stop you.
Can we have a wedding shower?
This one is a little tricky.. You are most welcome to host pre-wedding events if you wish, but in most cases it isn’t necessary. By a second marriage, most couples would have everything they need for the household. You may wish to instead hold a lovely spa day for the girls or a weekend away for the boys to celebrate the upcoming wedding. But if you do want to host a shower, go right ahead, at the end of the day it’s about yourselves as a couple and doing what makes you both happy.
