I’m getting married again. What on earth should I wear? Surely white’s not right for a second marriage?




If you had a white wedding first time around, you may well feel that going for the same thing again isn’t appropriate. On the other hand, if you want to, why not? Wearing white isn’t a particularly old tradition. Like a lot of things, it started with the Victorians. Before that, brides would simply wear their best dress to get married in.It also depends on the situation. It may be the groom’s second marriage but the bride’s first. In that case, why should she pass up the chance to wear the dress of her dreams? The main thing is to wear the dress that’s right for you.
