I hope it goes well!  I’m sure you picked out a beautiful dress.  She’ll love it.

You poor thing.  Frankly, I buck tradition a little.  I’m an encore too and I’m the same age as you are (not that age matters here) but my Fiance has not been married before so we are doing it all!  I bought a STARK WHITE dress and we are doing the whole shebang.

Feels much better this time around that’s for sure!  Good luck with everything and try not to worry.  While I understand family support/approval is important, it is still YOUR wedding.

Congrats and good luck!

Hey I’m an encore too and although this is my FI’s second marriage as well, this will be his first wedding so we are doing all of it. If it was up to me we’d be in Vegas by now, but nonetheless I am enjoying the planning. I also feel lucky that I get to do it over (dress and all)…so I consider the first one a mulligan! 😉

Both my dresses are in ivory. The styles are completely different (mostly because of changing tastes) but I didn’t hold back on either. I went for the one I fell in love with then, as I did today. Lace, beading, mantilla veil and all. My mom has only seen pictures and won’t probably see it until the weekend of. Since my Fiance and I are paying for and planning the wedding on our own, we are customizing it to our taste and wants. I consider my parents guests to our wedding, so if they don’t like how we do it, they can always leave. I wish they wouldn’t but that’s how I’m coping with it.
