An A-Z Guide
by Beth Reed Ramirez
Forty-three percent of all weddings today are actually remarriages. Yet, the majority of books on wedding planning and etiquette are designed with the first-time bride in mind. Encore brides have their own questions and concerns that no first-time bride would have. Now there is finally an excellent resource that suits their needs. Not a book of checklists and worksheets, Bride Again offers tips and provides answers.
Is it okay to wear white? Can my son give me away? And what am I going to tell my ex? Where can I find a gown I feel comfortable in? What would be appropriate? And beyond the nuts and bolts of wedding planning, what do you do to make your new blended family life successful? Remarriages don’t just bring together two people, they bring together two families.
Bride Again provides all the dos and don’ts for an elegant second wedding and presents ways to involve children in the ceremony. There is also sound advice on ways to beat the odds against remarriage and tips on how to avoid emotional pitfalls.
Featured on CBS, NBC Nightly News, Lifetime Live and The Weekend Today, wedding expert Beth Reed Ramirez was an encore bride herself and through personal and professional experience, she has answers for these questions and more. Written in a conversational and humorous style, Reed Ramirez’s straightforward advice is accompanied by real-life stories from other second-time brides.
