I haven’t been married even once, but I know you can navigate this. Your intimate, original wedding will ROCK. Here are some original, non-traditional wedding site sthat will inspire you… although not encore-related- I hope it helps! Follow your gut!

Oh sure, there are a lot of us encore brides on here. I just told people to shove it. I actually didn’t get a wedding for my first one, but it wouldn’t have matter if I had. They could come or not come! 🙂

I’ve only  been married once, but this is a great community full of lots of support, and a lot of “who gives a shit that it’s a second wedding.  its Your wedding!”  We have a great and supportive encore board here where a lot of bees discuss the issues they’re facing with a second wedding.  I think your goals are great, and I think you’ll be able to meet them all with as much ease as anyone planning a wedding.  Congratulations, and welcome to the hive!

I’m an encore bride too and I totally feel your pain – some days it really does feel like you’re a second class citizen if you’ve been on the bridal carousel before. And our wedding is additionally complicated by the fact that my guy has never been married before… There’s nothing like a combo Encore/1st wedding to put you in a tail-spin.

After about 2 months of constantly feeling like I needed to dial it back and that he shouldn’t have to compromise we just decided to ignore the “rules” – we don’t care what “they” say and “they” aren’t invited to our wedding anyway so why should we care what “they” think? (All of those quotation marks just made me dizzy…)

We’re doing our wedding our way and we’re so excited about it!

My best friend just went through a nasty divorce with an abusive prick. She is now with an amazing man (2 yrs.) that treats her like a princess and loves her so much. I feel that a wedding is a celebration of a couple’s love and commitment to each other, therefore they should feel free to throw a party of their style preference. Do not allow anybody to make you feel like less of a bride because of their own insecurities. I’m really glad you came to WeddingBee there are a ton of supportive ladies on here.

Oh yes!  We encore brides are certainly here!  And yes- everyone does have an opinion about it- just like they do at first weddings.  But now its a new set of things to think about- do you register, can you wear white again, etc. etc.  I am actually enjoying the process now more than the first time though- I can do whatever I want and anyone who really cares about me will be happy for me.  Good Luck!

I’m an Encore Bride/Wife.  We had a beautiful/intimate wedding that in the end we were both happy with.  Anything goes anymore for encore weddings, so don’t let people get you down about that.  Do what you want.
