Getting Remarried? The Dos And Don'ts Of Second Wedding Dresses

September 8, 2011 by jenniferannerice
shefinds | Weddings

Choosing a dress for your second wedding can be tough: you don’t want to look like a fool (a la Kim Kardashian) in an elaborate ball gown and headpiece, but you don’t want to choose something too casual that doesn’t mark the occasion. Since you don’t have to wear white, and many of the traditional rules are out the window, you have more freedom to choose something that suits your personality and taste. Think  Sofia Coppola in lavender or Reese Witherspoon in blush.

1. In lieu of a ball gown (ahem, Kim Kardashian), opt for a classic silhouette with a twist:

The classic silhouettes seen above in the Zac Posen Short Sleeve Dress ($2,250) and Tadashi Shoji Lace and Chiffon Gown ($548) are perfect for a second wedding. With small twists like ruffled sleeves or a gathered waistline, you’ll look fashion forward walking down the aisle.

2. Channel second-bride Sofia Coppola in a lavender dress:

Sofia Coppola rocked a stunning lavender colored dress for her second wedding, and made a bold statement without wearing a white gown. Mimic her look with the ML Monique Lhuillier Chiffon Halter Gown ($218) and Halston Off The Shoulder Jersey Gown ($1,895).

3. Keep it classy in blush like Reese Witherspoon:

Reese Witherspoon wore a blush colored gown down the aisle and we couldn’t be more obsessed with her color choice. A blush dress such as the Ethereal by Leila Hafzi Mariam Gown ($1,833) and  ($395) will really make a romantic statement.

4. Opt for subtle — not gaudy — embellishments:

A little goes a long way when it comes to gown embellishments, that’s why it’s important not to pick something that’s over-the-top for your second dress. Choose a basic silhouette that has a striking embellishment or focal point. We love the Marchesa Silk Crepe Strapless Gown ($5,995) and Temperley London-Long Selena Embellished Silk Gown ($2,010).

5. Choose something that you feel fabulous + comfortable in!

We consider these “rules” to be suggestions: the bottom line is, you should wear what you feel beautiful in. Could be a white string bikini in the Bahamas or a 16-foot train. Make the statement you want to make, and don’t let rules of traditional “bridal fashion” stop you from doing that.
