    I’m a first time bride and if I were a guest I would think it was cute and clever (: I wouldn’t read into it and/or be offended by a reference to the past.

    I was an encore bride. 

    I personally didn’t want to think about my previous marriage at my wedding to my current husband.

    And as Future Mrs. Martin mentioned, it does sound like you are re-marrying the person you got divorced from (which does happen sometimes!). If that were the case, I could understand more. But since you both were married to different people, I wouldn’t bring it up. I thought this when I first read the original post, I had to re-read it to figure out if you were marrying the same man or a different man.

    Your new marriage should have its own fresh start.

    @mypinkshoes:  I think its really cute and I’m a first time bride. You’re both acknowledging your past and there is nothing wrong with that!

    @MrsBroccoli:  Right, but the play on words has become “Eat, Drink, and Be Married!” and its kinda been done on wedding blogs to death.

    Personally it would make me cringe and smile awkwardly if I saw it. Besides, I don’t want to encourage people to joke about whether THIS marriage might also fail while at my wedding. That’s what I feel the signs would lead to.

    I think it’s funny, but then again I tend to find humor in just about every situation in life.  I have been married before and I’m getting married again.

    I think if you put anything it should be more of the

     “Pink Shoes and Blue Shoes…We are on the same block”

    I think it’s a cute idea!  It’s not like your first marriages didn’t happen, if you’re comfortable with it have fun! We both make fun of each other ex’s and each other for marrying them.

    I think it’s cute since its you guys’ idea! If someone else said it, I think I’d be embarrassed for the bride and groom.

    I personally would not want to bring up a past marriage at my wedding either.  As far as I know, it’s not common knowledge and I’m not even sure his parents know.  It’s not exactly dinner conversation.  I’d like to pretend the first marriage never happened!

    i think if it would fit in your social circle, then go ahead and do it! If your circle is full of stuffy/snobby people, then I would reconsider.

    Another thought….it also depends on WHY you are remarrying…if it is becasue one of your spouses has passed and has a child with the deceased, I would skip the joke.
