Wedding Gown: Can I Wear a White Wedding Dress When I Remarry?

Q:

This is my second wedding, my fiance's first. He wants me to wear white. Is it okay?

A:

It's absolutely okay! White used to symbolize virginity and so was seen as the color for a first-time bride to wear, but these days it simply represents joy and celebration. If you don't feel comfortable in an elaborate ball gown, go for a simpler wedding dress, perhaps with a simple headpiece. Whether to wear a wedding veil is up to you -- though the blusher (the veil that goes over a bride's face) is still considered the prerogative of first-timers.
