GETTING MARRIED AGAIN white dresses are no longer taboo. The most important thing is to pick a dress, regardless of the color, that brings out the beauty of the bride. Hemlines are shorter and the colors are often soft and pastel. Overall, dresses tend to be less ornamental with better quality silk or silk satin and the train is not as long. Another trend for a second time bride is a hairstyle donning fresh flowers. Wedding parties also tend to be pared down and attendants are usually allowed to pick their favorite cocktail dress that is within the brides color scheme or theme. WEDDING TRENDS Smaller, intimate weddings are definitely the norm for second time couples. Simple dinner parties or cocktail receptions are preferred over full-blown affairs and the bouquet and garter toss are absent and replaced by having the longest married couple in the room be awarded these items. The wedding invitations are issued from the bride and groom, in third person, without titles. It would read as follows:

Jane Cook and John Smith request the honor of your presence at their marriage

Finally, remember that while you might have been married before, it was not to each other. Treat your special day as just that, and keep in mind it is the first day the two of you will spend your lives together.
