In America, 13% of people marry again after a divorce. If you have previously been married, you have an enormous advantage when you are planning your wedding. You know exactly what's involved, and you are more inclined to do what makes you happy - not what family members or friends expect you to do. This is why you need to think about your priorities when organizing your big day.
Invite the people who matter
Your wedding doesn’t have to be a huge formal affair. You might opt for a summer barbecue party, or a private ceremony on a secluded beach. The most important thing is that you invite the people that matter, to celebrate your big day with you. Don’t get pressured to invite every second cousin twice removed that you might have. Just because you’ve invited one person from work, doesn’t mean you need to invite the whole office. You don’t have to make up excuses for not inviting someone either. Getting married after a divorce is when you move forward. You should share with the celebration with the people who really care for you and your partner.
Choose the food you love
For your wedding party, pick the food that you love to eat: don’t get tied down by convention. It's a good idea to share with your guests a meal that has emotional significance to you and your partner. Perhaps you shared salt and pepper squid on your first date. Or perhaps the marriage proposal was made over a meal of buffalo chicken wings. It doesn’t have to be fine dining; it just has to be simple and delicious.
That all important dress
Some people believe that you shouldn’t wear a white dress if you have already been previously married. The fact is that this is the 21st century and you should be able to wear what you please to get married in. It doesn’t matter if you want to get hitched in a purple velvet polka-dot trouser suit with a green beret, or even a fancy dress astronaut costume. So if you want to wear a big white gown with a train, then who is anyone to tell you otherwise? Just enjoy the opportunity to wear something that is extra special and makes you feel fabulous.
When you get remarried after a divorce, your wedding should be entirely on your terms. You have the wisdom and experience to know how to plan the perfect big day for you and your partner.
