I love the dress and I totally think you should rock it!!!  Maybe to be more “2nd time around” traditional”  nix a veil for just a pretty flower and up do, or a birdcage or something.  That might make your mom happy enough, lol, if she’s worried about tradition.

I think it’s beautiful and you should wear what you love. She’s not paying so she can’t dictate what you wear (that sounds snotty as I re-read it, but I’m not meaning it in that way). I hope your wedding is everything you and your Fiance want it to be.

Who cares what anybody else thinks?  It’s your and your fiance’s weddings.

I was an encore bride and I did the whole shebang and some more. Wore one wedding dress for the ceremony complete with beading, embroidery, long train and cathedral length mantilla. For the reception I changed into another full length lace dress. I have absolutely no regrets. Who cares if it’s your second wedding? It doesn’t mean it’s less important or exciting than the first one. I love that dress and I’m sure you’ll rock it.

I will never understand where people get the idea that an encore bride can’t wear a wedding dress. It’s still a wedding!! Don’t let your mom get you down, you deserve to feel beautiful on your day and in 2010 modern women can do whatever they want!

@cutiger: I think this dress if gorgeous and that you should totally get it if you know it’s “the one.”

Like you said…it’s your wedding, you’re paying for it, and YOU are the one wearing the dress. I don’t intend any disrespect toward your mother, but her perspective is kinda dated. It’s 2010, not 1950;  there’s no need to be so stuffy about what is and isn’t “appropriate” because I generally don’t believe people don’t think like that anymore.

Congratulations on your engagement! 🙂

This is my THIRD wedding and I’m doing the whole shebang!! I also dislike when people have made comments about me not doing certain things because I’m getting married…again. Its still a wedding and a joyous occassion and should be celebrated as such. Have your dream wedding with the man you love and don’t worry about what anyone else says. Everybody has an opinion whether its asked for or not and believe me they’ll get over it.
