Is the second wedding bon ton outdated?
According to the statistics, more and more couples believe in the second occasion and, therefore, are preparing to live their second wedding. Usually at a more mature and conscious age and with greater economic capability.
How to announce the second wedding?
It is essential that children and parents are informed at first. The number of invitations should be limited. The ceremony should be intimate and with as few guests as possible.
If and how inform your ex-spouse? That’s a strictly personal decision, surely conditioned by the relationships you have with your ex-spouse. However, you shouldn’t invite your ex to the party.
Sober or pompous second wedding?
There are no precise rules that establish how to decide to celebrate a second wedding, except for those established by law in the event of divorce.
So, most of the second wedding takes place with a civil ceremony and you can indulge in the location, although maintaining a certain discretion.
Etiquette strongly recommends abandoning the glitz and opting for an extremely simple and reserved celebration, for a few close friends. Discretion is the password, especially for the wedding dress!
Is all the above true still today?
Who said that in the event of a second wedding, something should be denied? Whether you want these to be done great or more discreetly, it must be something decided only by the couple.
So, if you wish, yes to the white dress, yes to the creation of the classic photo album and, of course, yes to the wedding cake.
Making it special, therefore, is up to the couple, who will be the only one to decide whether or not to stick to what custom had established. Of course, in conclusion, what is fundamental is always the happiness of the future spouses.
On the other hand, second wedding or not, it’s still your wedding.
