Making Your Second Wedding Shine for a Happily Ever After

Brides typically go all out on their big day, but for some reason, we rarely go “all out” for our second wedding. It’s almost as if we believe that, because the first one didn’t work out, we don’t deserve to have the fairy-tale wedding of our dreams. How rare is it to get a second chance at love? Your new marriage is worth celebrating every bit as your first, though it is understandable if you want to keep it within budget. For inspiration, and ways on how to throw the wedding of your dreams, consider the following guide:

Keep the Design Simple

Minimalism is all the rage right now. You don’t need to overdo it on the decorations and overspend as a result. Instead, keep it simple. Think a simple lace wedding dress, a naked wedding cake and a few but spectacular flower arrangements. By having the basis of your wedding minimal, you can impress through the detail: flowers in your hair, petals dropped on the floor, and elegant candles flickering for the ceremony.

Repurpose Your Old Wedding Dress

You’ve likely spent a lot on the dress, which is why you should consider repurposing it for your second wedding. Go to a tailor to see what you can do to change the design a bit, as well as get it refitted. You could add sleeves to your previously strapless dress, add more beading, or turn a full-length wedding dress into one that is midi or mini. However, if you want to be rid of the old completely, then don’t hesitate to find a new dress to wear when welcoming in your new marriage.

Don’t Skimp Out On the Photographer

One place many people look to save money is in the photographer. However, while you can easily use a playlist of your favorite hits, you cannot easily replicate the quality that a professional photographer can offer through smartphones. By all means, ask your guests to take photos (you could even create your own wedding hashtag on Instagram), but you should also hire a professional photographer. For instance, if you want a photographer who’s skilled in taking cinematographic wedding photos for extra atmosphere, then The Bleu Studio is the ideal service for you. If you want your big day to be special, and if you want beautiful photographs to commemorate it, you’ll need a professional.

Great Entertainment Tips No Matter Your Budget

People don’t require a lot to have fun, they just need good company, good food and good music. Look for simple and inexpensive entertainment that’ll go a long way. Start with a great playlist to get the party started, and leave it open so that after the first dance people can start adding songs as they please. You can create a DIY photo background and buy some cheap props from a dollar store. You can have games, activities that will keep your guests entertained all night. Also, if you can, try to have an open bar, or similarly if your reception is on a private residence and the local laws allow it, have your guests bring a bottle of their favorite drinks and provide the mixers.

Your second wedding is full of wisdom and experience, and a deeper understanding of commitment and love. Make your second wedding special with these tips, and you’ll have a magical start with your new love.
