Just because you were married once before, doesn’t mean that your second marriage can’t be a big celebration for the entire family. A second chance at love should be celebrated, perhaps even more so than the first. What you do regarding your special day is entirely up to you, and there is not wedding etiquette that says you can’t have a big, beautiful ceremony and reception if that’s what you want to do. Everything from selecting the premiere wedding venue to working with professional event planning staff should be a cause for celebration. Of course you should want to share your happiness with all of your family and friends!
Something Old, Something New
Think about your first marriage as your “something old,” a celebration that is completely different from what you are planning today. Your new marriage will, of course, be your “something new,” and it is really important that you treat it as a completely different experience. While some of the people on your guest list will be the same, and wedding traditions are quite common, nothing else needs to resemble your first marriage in any way, shape or form. Go new with everything, from your wedding clothes and your wedding party; the location of your ceremony and the wedding reception in Swansea, MA; the food that you serve and the colors of your bouquet – make this event entirely new, unique and completely for you and your spouse-to-be.
Create a Dream Wedding
The love and dreams that we share with one person are definitely not the same love and dreams that we shared with another. That being said, while you might have walked down the aisle before, your groom or bride may not have had this experience. Make sure to discuss your ideas for a Swansea wedding reception and ceremony so you will know for sure what you want to do together as a couple. Professional event planning can help take the reins once you know what you want to do to help secure the premiere wedding venue for your big celebration. Include the flowers, the music, the food and the cake that you have dreamed about having together. There’s no reason NOT to indulge and create the wedding of your dreams.
Back to the Church?
If you got married at your family church, you might not want to do it there again, especially if your fiance is not a member of the church and your ex still is. Consider hosting a combination ceremony and reception at a premiere wedding venue that can accommodate you and your guests for a double event. Venus de Milo can help you host a wedding ceremony and wedding reception in Swansea, MA with our large ballrooms and wide open spaces. Contact our professional event planning staff to find out more about hosting your Swansea wedding reception and ceremony at our beautiful facility.
Hosting a Shower
One of the big questions that couples ask when planning a wedding for a second marriage, is whether they should have a bridal shower or register for gifts. The answer is a little more complicated than a simple yes or no. It depends on whether or not the bride wants a bridal shower, as many first time brides are opting out of showers right now as well. It also depends on whether or not you will be setting up a new household together or if you already have all of the kitchen appliances, dishes and things that you need to get a good start in life as a married couple.
