I CAN'T WAIT TO DOCUMENT YOUR LOVE.
If you’re planning a second wedding, congratulations! You’ve found the perfect partner and you’re ready to celebrate your love. But, how do you make sure your second wedding is special? So, you’re ready to tie the knot for the second time around? Congratulations! While a second wedding is still a momentous occasion, it’s understandable that you may feel like you’ve already done all this before. Never fear—with these tips and ideas your second wedding can be just as unique and special as the first one.
Keep It Intimate: When planning a second wedding, it’s important to keep the guest list small and intimate. After all, this is an event for those closest to you—family members, close friends, and people who have been there for you during the course of your relationship. This also makes the day more special because it allows everyone to spend quality time with each other and celebrate your union in a meaningful way.
The Guest List: If your second wedding is anything like mine, it will be more intimate than the first. The guest list for my second wedding was about half of what it was for my first. This gave us the opportunity to invite close family and friends who had not been able to attend our first ceremony due to distance or other issues. Plus, if your budget is tighter this time around, having fewer guests helps with costs too! Your guests are coming out to celebrate your union and they should be taken care of accordingly! Send out personalized save-the-dates that include thoughtful details about the day’s events (e.g., where they should park). Also consider providing them with favors such as custom mugs or coasters that they can take home after the celebration is over.
The Ceremony: Sure, you could have another traditional ceremony if you want (although I highly recommend being creative here!), but why not take this chance to do something different? For example, you could have a destination wedding in an unexpected spot—perhaps on a beach or in a garden. You could also choose to elope or have a symbolic ceremony instead of a full-blown traditional one. It’s your day; make it memorable by doing something out of the ordinary.
The Reception: Depending on how much money you want to spend and how many people are coming, there are lots of ways to make your reception special without breaking the bank. Consider having it at an unusual venue such as an art gallery or museum; pick decorations that reflect both of your personalities; let guests know about potential activities like photo booths or karaoke; serve up some interesting food choices; and make sure there is plenty of music—and dancing!
Make It Fun: A second wedding doesn’t need to be traditional or stuffy; in fact, it can be just as fun and unique as any other wedding! For example, why not have an outdoor ceremony at a scenic location or provide guests with some interactive activities? You could even hire an old-fashioned ice cream truck or serve up gourmet donuts instead of cake! The possibilities are endless!
When planning your second wedding, remember that it should be as unique and special as your first one—just with less fuss! Whether you go down the traditional route or try something different entirely, make sure it reflects both of your personalities so that everyone attending leaves feeling inspired and happy for the two of you joining together once again in matrimony. Whether you’re having a small gathering or a grand affair, hosting a second wedding is an exciting experience that should be celebrated with style and grace! Keep these tips in mind when planning yours – from keeping it intimate to make sure your guests feel welcome – and we guarantee it will be an unforgettable event for everyone involved! Congratulations on finding the love of your life – now let’s get this party started! Good luck!
