Strawberryshmoo:  Meh, I couldn’t care less either way.  It may be less traditional for a 2nd time bride to wear a veil or have a long train, but it doesn’t affect anyone else so I so go for it!

I’m not wearing a veil (didn’t the first time either..just don’t like them) and have the same length train as I did before.

This etiquette stuff is outdated and silly, probably from the bad old days when if you were divorced people would cross the street rather than talk to you, and people only remarried because they were widowed. Presumably this was a way that you signalled that though you are a bride you are nolonger a virgin or something archaic like that. Do what you want.

Strawberryshmoo:  how crazy that anybody should be dictated to on what to wear to their own wedding?! I don’t know if this is some crazy American thing… I know Americans have really weird wedding etiquette rules! But no way… Wear whatever you want to get married in!

Strawberryshmoo:  🙁 That’s awful, do they live on the other side of a timewarp (circa 1910)?

Pfft those rules sound stupid. I wouldn’t even think twice if I was at a wedding where an encore bride was wearing a train and veil.

Wear whatever you want, you’ll look lovely no matter what 🙂

I’m a first time bride and I have a very small train on my dress (barely a train at all) and I won’t be wearing a veil.
