KEEP IT SIMPLE

For a second wedding, try to keep the ceremony mellow. Dress simply, with an unembellished style in and off-white or bisque. The groom could wear a dark suit with a light or bright solid tie. Forgo a wedding party and go solo at the altar. Finally, add a personal touch by writing your own vows.
