    I definitely would wear a wedding gown but would wear something more appropriate for an outdoor ceremony than a ballgown for example.

    If it were a second wedding with only 10-15 people, I wouldn’t do a full wedding gown, but definitely a wedding dress (no ball gown or anything over the top). But I also wouldn’t do someting too casual/less traditional. something somewhere in between?

    Depending on my age, and for 10-15 people, I probably wouldn’t go full on wedding dress. If I were in my older years, like, past 40? I personally, myself, not saying ANYONE else has to follow this, but just my personal preference for myself, I would probably just wear a nice skirt or pant suit in a soft pastel color.

    If I had married my ex at 20 when I was pregnant and subsequently divorced (instead of him never marrying me and we just broke up), and then later got re-married to my current Fiance around 27 (as is the plan now) I would still wear a full-on wedding dress, but I might go tea-length and not as poofy or showy if it’s just 10 or 15 people.

    Again, PERSONAL PREFERENCE, you do whatever your heart desires, OP, and rock it!

    @aquaelle:  Then you rock the hell out of that emsemble! I think that’s great. I am a full supporter of doing WHATEVER the hell you feel like doing for your own wedding day to make it special.

    I am in my ‘older years’!! And I will be wearing a wedding dress for my second time around!  I haven’t yet decided whether it will be white or coloured or ball gown or strapless but one thing I do know is that it will be what I want not what other people expect a 2nd time bride of 50 to wear.  But then I have never and will never be a pastel pantsuit person!

    I’m embarrassed by all things wedding, so if I could avoid the traditional wedding dress for this one I would.

    I have to laugh at being referred to as being in my “older years.” Whatever.

    I think your dress should be appropriate to your wedding style and setting, regardless of your age, which marriage this is, etc. If it’s a casual wedding, then by all means wear a wedding dress, but the full on princess ball gown is probably going to look at little out of place. If you’re considering the dress in the photo, it’s gorgeous, but it is rather formal. Whether it’s appropriate kind of depends on what the groom, the Bridal Party (if there is one), etc are wearing.

    Well, for me I think it would depend on if I got to wear that big fancy dress the first time around or if it was something casual due to circumstances. My Fiance married very young to his ex wife because of an unexpected pregnancy and they got married at the courthouse. This time around he wants a real wedding experience, which I totally understand and would feel the same way. However, if I was to marry again because our marriage didn’t work (knock on wood that that never happens) then I’d probably go more casual for the second wedding. That’s just me though, so don’t feel like you’re in the wrong or anything. The dress is beautiful and I know your Fiance is going to be awestruck.
