I think it’s all about what you want and not conforming to tradition just because you feel pressured to. No one will judge you and everyone will think you are a beautiful bride no matter what colour dress you wear. This will be my 2nd wedding. I wore white for my 1st and I thought I wanted white for my 2nd dress, but I ended up getting an ivory dress. I think it all just depends on what dress you fall in love with. I thought I would only go white…but the dress I fell in love with only came in Ivory and I actually am really happy with the ivory dress. Plus in photos the ivory dress still looks white! But I say try on all the different colours and see what you fall in love with – and choose that dress! 🙂

Here is my ivory dress:

Honestly, I was thinking of wearing black or something in print but can not find anything that I adore. Although, there is a Wtoo gown in all black that I am hoping to try on =) <br /><br />But it has nothing to do with being my second time. I think a woman should wear anything she wants for her wedding day. White is a silly tradition to begin with and not even a very old tradition. Before that, blue was the colour to wear in Ireland, red in other countries, some wore gold and in the US before the “white” dress, it was your best dress. <br /><br />Whatever makes you feel confident, beautiful and your best self. ^_^

My SIL is having her second wedding, and she’s going all out with the pretty pretty princess dress.  I say, wear what you want to wear, whether its white, ivory, champagne, or polka dots.  It’s your wedding, and you don’t answer to anyone about your attire!

Traditionally, blue is the color of virginity (picture the Virgin Mary), not white. White was Queen Victoria showing off how she could spend all that money on a dress she would only wear once; it was expensive to process the fabric, expensive to sew, nearly impossible to clean, etc. It was a symbol of wealth and social status, not “purity.” So wear whatever you want. Rock out in white if you like white.

I wore a white, boring, predictable A-line my first time. This time I am wearing a blush mermaid gown (Maggie Sottero Divina)!
