Hello! This is my first post here on wedding bee and I came here to get some ideas for my upcoming nuptials next year. I am a bit of an older bride ( mid 50’s). I was previously married- my marriage ended 20 years ago due to infidelity on my husband’s part. I was alone for so long, but am so excited that I found my love that I will soon call my husband. We work so well together and I can’t wait to make that committment again! Are there any rules nowadays about wearing white for your second wedding? I thought about wearing creme or off white, but the dress that I really love looks much better in white- but I’m afraid people will make judgements. On one hand I feel as though it took me so long to be happy again- I should just ignore tradition but the other part of me feels silly. Has anyone married again and wore white to their wedding?

I just had my second wedding and I wore a more white dress than my first. Not intentionally it was the dress i loved. You wear what makes you happy on your special day and don’t let anyone take that from you. 🙂

How come this question never comes up in regards to what men wear at weddings?
You rock the white girl! If guests are judging you on wearing white then they don’t belong at your wedding in the first place. That no white thing is a dead tradition, thank goodness.

It’s 2014. There are no rules. Wear what you want. I’m 50 and getting married in 6 months. I’ve earned the right to do what I want and nto care what people think.

I am going in my second marriage and I felt that way about wearing a wedding dress in general but I am going to be wearing a white wedding dress.

Wear whatever colour you want. It is no longer 1950 and bride’s wear whatever colour they wish from black to pink to purple.

GiannaP1972: I wore white to my wedding and I have been married before. The only one I know to judge me out loud was my mother. My own mother. Jeez, she needs a filter. Anyhow, I truly feel one should do whatever one wants for their wedding. I’m pretty liberal so white for a 2nd wedding is no biggie at all to me. I also don’t care what other people think so if you are ultra sensitive to that I don’t know what to tell you. But ROCK that dress!!!

Where what makes you feel beautifu! There are no rules. It’s your day. As another “mature” bride, I did the whole white dress from Davids thing. I felt great about it.
