Brides who are getting married the second time will usually be familiar with the wedding dress shopping experience. If this isn’t the first time you are a bride, you may have memories of how your previous wedding shopping session was and remember the excitement of finding the first dress. This factor can influence your overall experience when you attempt to find a great wedding dress again.
However, there is another side to the coin. You will be older, wiser and have a better idea of what you want, when you go shopping this time. From where you are in your life now, it is likely that you will be more confident and think your decisions through. This will also aid your wedding dress selection. Also, if you weren’t entirely happy with your dress decision last time, you can now make up for it. So, shopping for your wedding dress should be exciting once again.
Although it is impossible to keep comparing your choices to what you wore or bought for your first wedding, remember that this new phase in life is also about leaving the past behind. As you step into a new chapter of your life, be open and flexible with your choices. This will help you analyze your options objectively and choose a dress that fully meets your expectations.
To help you further, here are some of our insider tips for second-time brides to choose the perfect wedding dress for your wedding day.
Do your research once again
Wedding dress styles and options will have changed a lot from the last time you went shopping. Although the traditional silhouettes will still be available, there may be newer and more interesting options to explore. So, do your research before you set foot in a bridal store. Look at what is trending and shortlist styles that appeal to you. Collect pictures of the dress features you like and make notes of what you would like to see in your wedding dress. This will make your shopping session more productive.
Look for something different
You may have looked amazing in your old wedding gown. Nonetheless, this is the time to explore entirely different options, and embrace a whole new look. There will be other silhouettes, fabric and dress features that flatter you. So, look out for these options. Find dress styles that will enhance your best assets, that are significantly different from your old gown. This is your chance to do better in your life once again, and let this factor extend to your wedding dress decision as well.
Look for dresses that compliment your personality
Every bride should only choose a dress that reflects her taste. The wedding dress is an extension of your personality. So, don’t worry about following tradition or rules when choosing yours. Only settle for a dress that appeals to your likes. This could be an extension of what you wear on a regular basis. Or it could be a dress that is entirely different. Only you know what you truly want. So, consider this factor well and find a dress that speaks to you.
Match your dress choice to the style of wedding you plan
Let your venue and wedding theme help you choose your wedding dress. For traditional wedding styles, classic gowns may be better than modern, trendy options. If your wedding is a casual, laid back affair, choose simple silhouettes and casual dress styles to match the tone. Although second-time brides may prefer a shorter and simpler dress, there is no rule that suggests so. Ultimately it is your choice to find a dress that matches the venue and wedding style, while adding to your beauty. Here are some ideas on the Wedding Ideas Magazine to find dresses that are suitable for your theme.
Dress according to your age and body shape
Most second-time brides are mature brides. If this is the case, you should choose a style and silhouette that best suits your body shape and overall appearance. Look for dresses that make you look like a younger, smarter version of yourself. Although mature brides tend to gravitate towards classic dress silhouettes like the A-line and fit and flare, nothing should deter you from trying a cocktail length dress or a fish tail gown. Analyse your body type and find out whether there are any areas you would like to hide. Also, identify the assets you would like to show off. Then choose a dress that camouflages the less desirable parts while drawing attention to the more attractive parts.
Be bold enough to defy tradition
Traditionally, the bridal dress was never white. White wedding dresses are in fact a trend that emerged in the Victorian era. Although most brides still prefer to wear white on their wedding day, you can always break the norm. Stunning colorful wedding gowns constantly make the rounds on runways. Explore these stunning options in light and bright colors. Or choose printed wedding dresses that have been trending recently. Florals and watercolor details are typically associated with wedding dresses.
Your dress should make you feel special
Don’t dismiss the dress as a less-important factor about your wedding. Whether your wedding is an intimate affair or a grand bash, you deserve to feel special on this big day in your life. It doesn’t matter how much you spend on your dress. Instead, what is more important is that you love your wedding dress, how it drapes on you and how it makes you feel. With dresses in all price ranges, you will have plenty of options to pick a dress that is unique and makes you a beautiful bride once again.
Don’t even think of wearing the dress you wore the first time around
If there is one rule to strictly adhere to when you are a second-time bride, it is to never use your first wedding dress again. Even if you never got to wear it because your engagement was called off. A dress that wasn’t bought for this wedding day shouldn’t be the one you wear for it. Wearing your old wedding dress will take the focus off your new marriage. So, we suggest you start your special day on a new footing with an entirely new wedding dress. Try to keep it very different from what you wore the first time around, to avoid any comparisons between the two.
Think of comfort and practical constraints
Make sure that wearing a comfortable dress is one of your top priorities. Don’t choose a dress style that makes you feel conscious of how you look. Also, avoid dresses that are too heavy or difficult to manage. Before you commit to a dress, check if it is easy to move around in and fits comfortably. If you feel it looks good but feels uncomfortable, it is better you keep looking.
There are no hard and fast rules on what you should or should not wear when you will be wed the second time. Nevertheless, there are some general trends in the dresses that mature brides opt for on such occasions. Based on this, here are some suggestions to help you get inspired.
Wedding dress suggestions for second-time brides
Elegant Vintage wedding dresses
Most brides gravitate towards elegance and sophistication when they look for their wedding dress. Dresses from bygone eras have the romance and demure finesse to achieve this look. These dresses also usually feature classic style elements that make it comfortable to wear for an older bride.
This Mori Lee Morena in Duchess Satin is a ravishing beauty, with its classic V-neckline and A-line silhouette. The sparkling chevron waistband enhances the pristine clarity of the white, making this a splendid dress that is simple yet captivating.
Many brides have already had a chance to enjoy their princess look the first time. So, they tend to look for more casual styles. And what better choice than a dress with a shorter hemline. This style is particularly apt if your wedding is low-key and you prefer a simpler bridal look.
The Monica Loretti Orifilia is an enchanting short dress with cord lace details extending into full-length sleeves and a beautiful bateau neckline. The illusion details create a bridal look, while it isn’t overpowering and perfect for a casual vibe.
Illusion-style wedding dresses
Romantic, classy and dainty, illusion lace details instantly enhance the splendor of any dress. Peek-a-boo lace is always feminine, and second-time brides who have already tried a glamorous look before often choose the delicate, feminine look the second time around.
Dreamy illusion hand embroidery details form enchanting embellishments on this soft Monica Loretti dress. The A-line gown is entirely crafted from smooth, flowing fabric with an embroidered illusion bodice over the sweetheart neckline as the only embellishment. This is a stylish yet elegant choice for a second-time bride.
Long sleeve dresses
Whether it is to conceal your upper arms or to look modest, many brides look forward to exploring options in gowns with full-length sleeves. The presence of long sleeves is often slimming, and it works with various silhouettes to create different effects. It is also a timeless style that appeals to older brides. Full-length sleeves can also be created with the help of a jacket or bolero over your chosen dress, if you are unable to find a dress that appeals to you entirely.
Another dress from the Monica Loretti collection, the Melisa has lace illusion sleeves over a stunning strapless bodice. The vivid textures in the lace sleeves beautifully compliment the soft flowy finish of the gown. The streamlined A-line silhouete is also classy, and the pretty waistband enhances the effect of a slender waistline. This dress style has a slimming effect, and it is a lovely choice that is powerful without too many details.
Dresses with showstopper details
At times it is not about having every attractive feature in the dress, but about highlighting few details with due importance. Dresses with just one showstopper detail are a huge hit with second-time brides. This gives them the opportunity to show off their taste without going overboard with too many details.
Before you dismiss this gown as a simple lace wedding dress with spaghetti straps in the front and few crystal embellishments along the neckline, take a look at the beauty it is in the back.
Here, is a stunning back that will amaze everyone. The bodice extends into a narrow strap that borders a sexy cut-out detail above the waistline. It is an unexpected and interesting style, that will capture the attention of your wedding guests. Show off your sensual side in this dress, which is unusually interesting and suitable for your bold personality.
Just a dash of color can make all the difference
Leave your old life behind, and begin your new chapter on a brand new and entirely different note when you wear a colorful wedding dress. A subtle dose of color will set your look apart, without spoiling the bridal effect. Choose colors or prints that suit your complexion for the best effect. Or go with the latest trends in wedding dress colors.
This beauty from the Mon Cheri collection is simply magnificent with striking lace appliques that swim over the entire length. An overlay skirt forms panels on either side of the waistline, while the original dress has a fit and flare skirt. This is a dress that will help you sport two distinct looks on your wedding day without spending on two entirely different dresses. Hence it is a practical and interesting choice.
You may be getting married the second or third time, but a Bride is a Bride. Don’t hesitate to explore your options and dream big when it comes to your wedding dress. If there is something you regret from your wedding dress shopping the first time, this is the opportunity to fix it. So, make your decisions only when you are sure it is right.

Once you choose your wedding dress, you are only half-done with dressing up for your wedding day. You still have to choose your hairstyle, makeup and most importantly, the accessories to bring together your overall look.
Just like there are thousands of options in wedding dresses, there are plenty of choices in wedding jewelry too. Finding the right balance in size, structure and impact created by the chosen accessories, is important to fashioning your overall wedding day look. Neither should you go overboard with accessories that it competes with your wedding dress, nor should it be too simple that it doesn’t help you to stand out as a bride.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your wedding day jewelry.
Buy your wedding dress first: We always recommend buying your wedding dress first and then choosing matching accessories, as it is easier to do things in this order. The only exception is if you will be wearing heirloom jewelry or have already spent a fortune on jewelry that will be the signature element in creating your look.
Find the right balance: If your wedding dress is simple, choose statement jewelry that enhances your overall look. On the other hand, if you have chosen a richly embellished wedding dress with plenty of detail, opt for simple jewelry so your overall look isn’t cluttered.
Choose jewelry that suits your features: Always try on jewelry before you buy it, so you can make sure that it complements your facial features. Certain styles look better than others on different face shapes. So, make sure that the accessories you choose highlights your most attractive features.
Now you know what you should be looking for, when choosing your wedding jewelry.
With more and more brides preferring themed weddings, it is necessary to find jewelry that will contribute to the style they sport on their wedding day. Let us take a look at some inspiring wedding jewelry ideas for the most popular wedding themes we find these days.
This style is non-traditional, bold and vibrant. It is colorful, wild and has an unconventional edge that is both endearing and unusual, and is significantly different from anything traditional. When you are a Boho bride, your wedding dress will usually be dramatic enough. It isn’t necessary to find matching accessories for your wedding dress, as this style allows you to mix and play with entirely different styles to create your own signature look. Here are some ideas.
Instantly add style to your look with a unique headpiece that screams out your style statement. Feathers, flower crowns, oversize beaded head pieces and colorful headbands are all suitable for this style.
A colorful necklace with a lot of texture, like fabric strips, beads and stones, is a must-have. This will not only add color, it will also be a unique piece.
Prints and patterns appeal to Boho brides immensely, and there are many ways to add these to your ensemble. Consider wearing a earrings with colorful prints to instantly add a pop of color to your face.
Unexpected pieces of jewelry like toe rings, anklets or other foot jewelry are an amazing way to make a statement, especially if your wedding dress just skims your ankles and exposes your dainty feet.
The name says it all—the classic bride prefers timeless trends that never go out of fashion. There is a refined sophistication to this style, and these brides usually have an affinity for pearls and diamonds in simple but stunning designs. Classic wedding dresses feature traditional silhouettes like ball gowns or A-line dresses, with or without sleeves. The makeup is usually quite simple, and the hair is done in simple styles like chignons, buns or simply let down. Here are the jewelry choices that complement this style.
The choice of necklace depends on the neckline of the gown. If the dress features an embellished or high neckline, the necklace can be eliminated. If not, these brides usually prefer a string of pearls or a simple necklace with a stone studded pendant. If the bride opts for color, this can be achieved with gemstones like emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
While some brides choose large studs and dangling earrings decorated with pearls or stones, others prefer to keep it simple with a single stone stud. Basically, aim to strike the right balance between the earring size and necklace. If the necklace is elaborate, it is best to avoid earrings or stick to simpler ones.
Hair accessories like little brooches, scintillating classy headbands or pretty beaded headpieces can be used to dress up your hair in a sophisticated way, especially if you aren’t using much jewelry in the rest of your outfit.
Each vintage era has its distinct characteristics, and your jewelry should go well with the era that has inspired your wedding plans. If you are just aiming for an old-fashioned vibe, there are common elements like lace and pearls that suit almost all the styles. Let us take a look at some samples of what accessories would be suitable for a vintage style wedding dress.
Pearls and stones are a must-have, and the more elaborate the necklace, better it will match the vintage theme. Strings of pearls, like those featured in this picture, will bring the vintage effect alive in your outfit. If you want more drama, club different sized strings of pearls to come up with your own stylish interpretation of a vintage piece. Else search through your mother or grandmother’s jewelry collection to pick out necklaces that were trendy in their days.
Finish off your vintage hair up-do with a vivid headpiece with enough sparkle to make a statement. Whether you choose to place it around your crown, above your bun or as a string on just one side, it is bound to add that finishing touch to the perfect hairstyle.
Add a touch of vintage glam to your face with the help of oversize shiny loops in your ear. The more jazzy they look with shiny stones, the better it will be. With a pair as magnificent as in this picture, you can even skip a necklace, as they are absolute showstoppers.
There are many brides who would have it no other way, than have their nuptials at the beach. Since these weddings are casual, fun and full of the essence of the sand and sea, their dress and accessories should reflect this tone too. While the wedding dress itself should best feature soft, lightweight, breezy fabric, the jewelry can be loud, with plenty of inspiration drawn from the frolicking waves and blue skies that characterize every beach location. Here are a few ideas.
Start with a nautical inspired headband. Here is one with starfish and flowers as blue as the ocean. The best part is that it weaves into the hair seamlessly, so it looks like it is a part of the hairdo. Could it get any better than this?
Pearl earrings and studs are perfect for a beach wedding, as these are associated with the ocean. However, if you want a casual look, go with colorful options like corals or shells in your jewelry, and it will look great. These dangling coral earrings are simply perfect to dress up your white attire with a little pop of color, and it is just apt for a beach wedding.
To go with your coral earrings, get an equally attractive coral necklace. The bright pop of pinkish orange will instantly color your wedding outfit and make you look like a sea princess, all set to be wed where surf meets turf. This coral necklace has a darker tone, and is perfectly complemented by the blue turquoise beads. The silver pendant adds a vintage touch and gives it a beautiful personality.
If there is one wedding where foot jewelry doesn’t look out of place, it has to be a beach wedding. Dress up your pretty feet with beautiful accessories, as you will be trotting through the sand and they will highlight your beautiful feet.
When we think of glamorous, the image that immediately comes to mind is plenty of glitter, sexy outfits and large signature style jewelry. When you choose a dress that has all the elements that make it captivating, you can wear just minimum jewelry to complement it. Take care to not overdo the jewelry, or you can end up looking over-the-top and cluttered. Here are some jewelry options to add a touch of glamour to your wedding day look.
If your wedding dress has a strapless neckline, bring on the bling with a loud and bright necklace. Gold is the ideal metal to use, as it instantly adds more glamour to your look. If not, opt for sparkles with gems in your necklace. Consider big motifs and large pendants for a striking finish. If you have a color theme for your wedding, don’t hesitate to consider a necklace with colored gems for that unique touch.
If an eye-catching necklace doesn’t appeal to you, choose big, bold earrings instead. If you wear your hair in an up do, draw focus to your face with dangling earrings. Instead, if you leave your hair down, a big stud is a better option as it will not get lost within your tresses. Remember to stick to only one statement piece of jewelry; either the earring or a necklace. If you will be wearing both, keep them small, so you don’t look like you belong in a costume parade.
Go bold with a big headpiece if you want to look really glamorous. We think it is most effective when hair pieces are placed on the side of the crown, instead of at the center. If you really want to look glamorous, you can wear a tiara. After all, it isn’t everyday that you can dress up like a princess, and get away with it.
Don’t forget that your fingers and arms can also revel in some extra attention. Consider adding a bright, brilliant bracelet to your ensemble, especially if your dress is strapless and you will be showing off your arms. If not a bracelet, then you should consider a big, statement ring for one of your fingers, that will pop with sparkle. Don’t forget to ask your photographer to spare some extra attention to pictures with your bouquets, and your fingers will get all the glory they deserve.
Finding the jewelry to match your outfit is a critical part of completing your bridal look. With these tips, it should be possible for you to get a start and identify what would suit your style and personality most.

Style is a sophisticated concept, and each woman has her own definition for it. The general fashion style dictates a woman’s wedding dress choice as well, as wedding dresses are supposed to reflect the bride’s personality. This is why we see that the dresses that one bride considers stylish do not find equal favor with another bride. Finding the style that reflects your personality is primary to looking and feeling good, especially on your wedding day.
The fashion world has identified styles based on similarities in patterns, fabrics and color combinations. This article on the enkiVillage website divides Fashion styles into as many as 17 different types based on these factors. We can find wedding dresses that conform to most of these different styles. So, read on to see the dresses that we have identified as perfect for each of them. And, once you’ve gone through these gorgeous wedding dresses, don’t forget to tell us which of these styles best defines you.
The Boho style is identified as non-traditional and unusual. In this style, you can expect textures and colors in unexpected combinations creating a characteristic gypsy style. The beauty of the Boho style is that it brings together seemingly unrelated elements and carves out a fashion statement of its own. Despite this, it is attractive in it’s own way.
The Mori Lee 6808 is a dress that will be loved by the Boho-style fan. This dress mixes and matches textures in an obvious way, which is why it is unusually attractive. Light, wispy fabric in tiers forms layers in the skirt, while the bodice features lace over the bust and a draped waistband that is replicated in the straps. Perfect for a destination wedding, this is a dress that is light and perfect for an informal setting.
Chic translates into stylish, and here the look is both fashionable and smart. It is a perfect choice for the modern woman with a strong personality, who knows how to rock fashion the right way. In this style you will see both classic and modern elements, with the main feature being that it personifies the confidence of the woman wearing it.
The Mori Lee 5402 features a modern modified A-line silhouette with a stylish sweetheart neckline and artistically placed lace details. The dropped waist is slimming, and the layered skirt has just the right amount of drama. It is stylish, while combining traditional elements with modern and trendy features. The silhouette, neckline and hemline are all perfect for a chic bride.
Classic style refers to timeless details that have always been favored. Classic style dresses usually feature flawless tailoring and fine fabric, that make them elegant and perfect as heirlooms. This is because the dress has features that are never called trendy, but are staples that appeal to all generations without looking dated. This style usually stands out without being cluttered or too glitzy, yet is noticed easily for its finesse and quality of details. Every bride who wants a safe choice for her wedding day, should consider a wedding dress with classic style elements, even if her regular wardrobe doesn’t contain many classic staples.
The Mori Lee 2703, an A-line gown in Duchess satin with fine crystal beading is a stunning example of this style. This dress features exquisite embroidery details along the sweetheart neckline and center of the bodice as well as a basque waistline, which is another classic feature. With a wonderful train, and satin buttons that course all the way down to the end of the train at the back, this dress is just perfect for a formal wedding. The elegant bride who glides down the aisle, will enrapture all the onlookers in this timeless gown.
Dramatic is energetic, flamboyant style that stands out distinctly. The style is flashy and loud, with more than one element that competes for attention. The dress style is elaborate, and the accessories usually bring out the exciting and wild nature of the dress. It can be overwhelming to some, but the woman who loves dramatic style won’t mind the obvious style of the attires that give her an easy and obvious way to be noticed.
Fairytales are the one place where you are bound to find dramatic looks. The dropped waist bodice is embellished with a unique rhinestone and crystal beaded design never seen before. In striking contrast, thick, wispy flange ruffles recreate the waves of the ocean in the skirt. The sweetheart bodice and chapel train are the other characteristic features of this attractive wedding dress.
Dramatic and sexy, with just the right amount of bling, glamorous styles strive to enhance femininity in the most stylish way. Women who like this style do not hesitate to max up on the style factor and wear big and bold features and accessories that dazzle and stun. Glamour can also be done subtly, but this look cannot be mistaken, and this type of glamorous bride will be remembered for the refined sophistication she sported.
The Y11634 Loraina from the Sophia Tolli collection has several elements that make it glamorous. An off-the-shoulder neckline that allows the bride to show off her décolletage and well-toned shoulders is a striking feature. Apart from this, the dress also features a snug fitting trumpet silhouette that courses snugly along the natural curves of the bride’s figure. The tasteful artwork in lace and the brilliance of the crystal embroidery give this dress all that is required to make a statement look. Add to it the illusion style back and the magnificent chapel train, there is no stopping this bride!
Poetic and magnificent, the romantic style features flowers, hearts, ruffles and soft dreamy details that are immensely captivating. Gentle curves, soft lines and details that seamlessly flow from one area to the other, the romantic style is beautiful and appeals to almost everyone. Lace is one detail that is usually associated with romantic styles, and this style emphasizes the feminine features to the maximum extent possible.
The Mori Lee 2724 is an elegant romantic fit and flare gown with luscious lace details and a sparkling heart motif at the bust. The soft details are simply splendid and the soft contrast of lace against the sateen shine of the layers below it make this a stellar design. The sweetheart neckline accentuates the femininity of the bride in this dress, with it softly coursing along the natural curves of the bust. The back details are simple, with a satin button train coursing through the center, all the way to the derriere.
Sexy styles do not have to always expose a lot of skin, although this is the primary factor associated with this style. Deep-cut necklines, daring plunging backs, tight-fitting silhouettes and bare shoulders or legs are all associated with this style. The sexy bride is usually confident and bold, which is why she is comfortable showing off her best assets.
Lady Almog from the My Lady designer collection is the perfect example for sexy bridal style. The deep sweetheart neckline features a deep plunge in the center, and is accompanied by an illusion style bodice that exposes more than the usual amount of skin. This collection allows brides to mix and match the two pieces that form the wedding dress, so you can achieve the look you desire. Sexy dresses are usually great for informal, high-on-style weddings, where the bride wishes to show off her stylish body and be the center of attention.
Traditional is often confused with classic, but there is a significant difference between the two. While classic styles focuses on features that are always trendy, traditional styles focus on conventional designs that are sometimes not really relevant. These are usually very modest dresses and comfortable. It can also focus on simplicity and timeless details that are bound to be a favorite with the older generation.
The Mori Lee 5362 has cap-sleeves, a pleated A-line skirt and a defined waistline; all features that make it a traditional favorite. Although the bodice features a sweetheart neckline, the sheer lace overlay that forms a bateau neckline makes this a modest choice. The dress is charming in it’s own way, but it doesn’t expose much skin nor does it fit to snugly to the natural body shape to be uncomfortable. All in all, it is a safe choice.
This is the girl who would rather wear jeans and slacks than be found in a gown. She is uncomfortable in anything too frilly and feminine, and wouldn’t really mind sporting a pant suit on her wedding day. However, there are plenty of dresses that keep the femininity factor to the required minimum and are smart, making it perfect for the tomboy type.
The Y21504 Ricki from the Sophia Tolli collection is a dress that is smart, with just the right amount of bling on the sleeves and at the gathered waist, to make it interesting. The square neckline is supported with scintillating straps and the fit and flare silhouette is comfortable with the draped layers defining the natural figure but not making it too clingy. The corset back is simple and can be fastened to be comfortably tight or loose, as the bride prefers.
Considered the dark choice in the fashion world, this style is characterized by pale, dark details. Black is an essential color in this style, and though it isn’t usually associated with wedding dresses, modern designers incorporate this factor to create dresses that appeal to the Gothic style bride. This style is also characterized by makeup and accessories that are bold and play on the contrast of extreme dark and light effects.
This is a dress that will most likely please the Gothic bride. With ample black lace details coursing all over the bodice to the dropped waist, the dress emphasizes the contrast between the black and white in an obvious way. The skirt is light and wispy, making the powerful effect of the black in the design more pronounced. The closed-up high neckline and cap sleeves are other factors that make this dress dark and mysterious.
This is a style that brings together contemporary and classic elements in an elegant and impressive way. Sophisticated style is one that can be nailed only by the fashion conscious, who knows her way around mixing and matching various elements that aren’t usually seen together, to craft a distinctive appeal. Quality is an important factor in the sophisticated fashion style. These brides look polished and perfect, and know how to bring together their look using the apt mixing of style elements.
The Mori Lee 2789 lace and satin gown is a sophisticated wedding dress that brings together the sheen of satin with the soft flutter of lace harmoniously. The illusion neckline with beaded necklace details and the embellished sweetheart bodice instantly add style to the upper torso. The fit and flare silhouette is figure-flattering, while the lustrous skirt has subtle glamour.
