You’ve already said “yes” once, but this time it will be even better. After going through the stress of the unknown the first time around, a second marriage is a chance to set things up exactly the way you want. It’s also a chance to get creative in terms of what you wear. The perfect and best second wedding dress can be an easier opportunity to eschew tradition and wear what makes you feel your best. Whether you want something sleeker than what you wore the first time around, or are looking to add a splash of color as you walk down the aisle, consider this your chance to embrace your personal style (after everything, who can forget Kim Kardashian cuts out Givenchy for her second nuptials to Kanye West).
With that in mind, below is a list of potential options for your second wedding celebration, whether it’s a playful mini dress for your playful party or something a little more casual for a attenuated event. While you may still worry about sending in your save dates or whether you can reasonably have your first dance to a Harry Styles song, this time around, at least your wedding dress may be an easy decision.
For brides who remarry several years after the first event, your tastes and style may have undergone some serious changes. A long-sleeved dress offers a little more coverage and is a stylish option if you want something a little more mature. Whether you choose a fitted silhouette or something with a light skirt, this option is timeless.
Just a hint of color
The second time around is your chance to get creative, so why not add a light pop of color to your wedding look. These soft pastel options still have a bridal feel (trust us, all eyes will be on you), but they lack the formality of a crisp white dress.
If you’re looking for something that bucks the ultra-traditional princess dress, why not consider a playful jumpsuit instead. You won’t have to worry about a long train or an oversized crinoline skirt. In addition, you will be able to easily move around the party.
If you’re ditching a traditional ceremony for a big party, opt for a dress to match the setting. A playful mini dress can still give the impression of being bridal, but can better capture the mood of the event. You’ll be ready to hit the dance floor in one of these.
A simple, elegant dress never goes out of style – think Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s Narciso Rodriguez dress, which is still in style more than 25 years later. This simple, elegant silhouette is classic, comfortable and elegantly effortless.
