There are a number of alternatives and choices for a second wedding. Your decisions may be determined by you and your fiance's age, whether children are involved, and if this is a second marriage for both of you, or just one of you. One of the first things you should do when planning a second wedding is meet with your clergyman or the official that you would like to perform the ceremony. Find out all regulations or restrictions on the re-marriage of a divorced person. When it is the bride's first marriage and the groom's second, generally everything remains traditional. The wedding may be as formal and religious as you like, depending on your particular religious affiliation. Traditionally, when it's the bride's second marriage, a semiformal or informal wedding is chosen rather than a large, very formal wedding. The exception to this could be if the bride's first wedding was informal, or if she has no children. Another exception could be if it's the bride's second, but the groom's first marriage, and the groom's parents decide to host the wedding. When it is both the groom and the bride's second marriage, it is usually best to have a tasteful semiformal or informal wedding. For additional information on second marriages, consult a bridal consultant in your area.
