Weddings today have become much less of a once-in-a-lifetime event, and more of a twice-in-a-lifetime or thrice-in-a-lifetime event. 50 to 60% of men and women who have been previously married will plan another wedding for themselves. We think there are a lot of stigmas around planning a second wedding, and we want to address a couple things!
Remarriages used to have to be quiet, small weddings, but now, many people who are getting remarried make their second wedding just as large and elaborate as their first. Though this is true, those planning a second or third wedding usually have a lot of questions about what they should or shouldn’t do again, or what is and isn’t allowed. We totally understand these questions, and we want to reiterate that it’s our belief that for the two getting married, this is a first for them as a couple, and it’s a beautiful celebration of the beginning of their lives together. Every marriage is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated as much as you’d like it to be, whether it’s your first time down the aisle or your third.
Something we hear from quite a few people is the belief that it’s bad etiquette or embarrassing to re-hire the same vendors that they used on their first wedding. As a high-end wedding vendor, we want to squash that belief! If you were happy with the services of a vendor the first time around, why not allow them the opportunity to create a great experience for you again? Our job is to grow and change with our clients, and creating a new, but equally satisfying experience is what we love about second weddings. We know that you don’t want a duplicate wedding, or a wedding that will remind you (or your guests) of your previous nuptials. We love the opportunity to give you a whole new experience that you’ll treasure with your spouse. The absolute best thing you can do for a photographer, florist, planner, or DJ that you love is give them your business. We know that planning a second wedding can be tricky in many ways, but picking your vendors shouldn’t be. If you’ve worked with someone you loved, let them celebrate with you again!
So if you’re planning a second wedding, definitely don’t hesitate to contact the people who made your previous wedding beautiful. We want you to have a beautiful day just as much as you do!
