When were your and your fiance’s last weddings? if you don’t mind me asking?

ETA Oops I see that you didn’t have a wedding. You should have one! Do whatever you want!

I like to follow etiquette in most instances, and I have never read anything about not doing traditional things with a second wedding.

 

If you want BMs go for it. 

If you want to register go for it (the poor etiquette part is to add registry info with your invtations – very tacky).

If you want a white gown go for it (I wore a lace strapless gown with a train for my wedding).

If someone wants to host a shwoer for you, you can accept (you don’t host your own showers though)

 

I did not have a “wedding” the first time around either.  We just went to the county clerks office, she stood up and that’s it.  Nothing special at all.  I opted for a destination elopement with the gown this time.

Feel free to celebrate your love for each other in whatever way you want to. If you want to wear white, wear it. If you want flowers, have them. If 10 bridesmaids makes you happy then, go for it.

I think that since you didn’t have a wedding the first time, go ahead and do whatever you want. I’m sure everyone will be happy for you, and if they don’t want to get something off their registry, that’s their choice.

Times are changing and really, what’s “traditional” anymore? It’s all about YOU YOU YOU! This is my 2nd wedding and my fiance’s first. I too worried about the “2nd wedding stigma” and finally realized that the wedding is supposed to be about US and the celebration of our vows and our bond.. not about impressing or offending anyone else. Do what you dream of!

@futuremrshicks13:  I eloped for my first wedding (My Fiance had the big wedding)…This time round, he wants me to have the big wedding that I would have dreamed of…SO…WE ARE 🙂

and my friends are so happy because they missed out the first time lol

I don’t care what anyone thinks…I know the people that we invite will want to be there to celebrate our love for each other and are happy that we found eachother…

<3<3<3

Make it what you both want…there is no pleasing everyone in this world Wink
