Second-Time Wedding Dresses

Gowns For the Encore Bride

Today, a second-time bride can wear any dress she darn well pleases on her wedding day. Modern second-time brides are no longer restricted to dress suits and simple knee-length dresses. Since white is now a celebrated symbol of joy rather than virginity many second-time brides are wearing the bouffant white bridal gown. The only no, according to wedding etiquette, is concerning second-time brides wearing long trains and veils, which are reserved solely for first-time brides.

Second-time bride's have experience in their corner. According to the Ultimate Wedding site, over 52% of first-time brides doubted their choice wedding dress. This is why second-time brides have the luxury of looking back at their first marriage as a practice run - where both the husband and the wedding dress are concerned.

Second-time brides have no excuse not to look their best a second time around, so we've put together a list of fun, sexy and classic looks that will ensure the second time around is a charm!

  • Turn heads in a sexy silk slip dress in shades of ivory, pale pink, blush, champagne and pale blue.
  • Slip on a bridesmaid's dress in another hue - some would argue that the color ivory is more timeless than white anyhow!
  • Remind your new groom why he's the luckiest man on earth, in a flirty cocktail dress - with a crinoline.
  • Second-time brides have the guts to be more daring - so why not slink into a body-hugging, floor-length number with an off-the-shoulder neckline.
  • Go classic Jackie-O with a crisp white suit jacket and skirt combo. Top it all off with a white veiled hat.
  • Flappers made jaws drop and so should you! Celebrate your vows in a 1940's inspired satin slip dress with crystal beading and spaghetti straps.
  • Make your wedding toasts in a two-piece satin corset and ball gown ensemble.
