Hi Ellie!

First of all, don’t worry about it being your second wedding – that doesn’t matter at all! A lot of us are encore brides.

I think you both sound really interesting and your wedding would be really kick ass! It’s probably not as hard as you think to incorporate you two into it… start with a venue… ours reflected us – it was a 1920’s theater… the rest just fell into place. Start with the venue!

And welcome!

Have you checked out RockNRoll Bride and Offbeat Bride? I’m pretty eclectic in my tastes, and when I get engaged, I definitely want to have our wedding super personal, so I look to these sites as good personalization inspiration. Hope it helps! And welcome!

I was going to suggest OffBeatBride too 🙂 After WeddingBee, it’s my most favorite-est wedding website 🙂

As you start to plan, sit down with your FI and talk about what’s important to both of you in the wedding, and dont be afraid to abandon ‘traditional’ in favor of ‘meaningful’ if it’s more YOU 🙂

It really helped us to talk about the mood we wanted to set. We realized that we wanted something fun and a little unexpected as opposed to really polished or formal.

I also thought of Offbeat Bride while reading your post.  I think no matter how many of the guests are “yours”, you should find ways to put each of you into your wedding. 

I’m an encore, FI is a newbie, and he’s also Mexican.  We are just using little details to represent “us” wherever we can.  Our venue has a very old world Mexico feel and our ceremony music will reflect that with a Spanish guitar.  FI is a musician, so the music is important to him and I’m letting him run with that.  We plan to use little mini empanadas as favors.  Since I’m DIYing lots lots lots, the invites and flowers will be very “me”.

Bottom line – add the elements you love and go from there – sounds totally awesome to me!

I totally agree with the others – RocknRoll Bride and Offbeat Bride would probably give you a ton of great inspiration. I think it is so cool that weddings nowadays don’t always have to scream “traditional,” and that brides are taking liberties to personalize their day. I think you should definitely be able to inject what is “you” into the wedding for sure! Have fun with it!
