Wedding-Day Styles For Encore Brides

The spring issue of Inside Weddings features an article in which etiquette expert Anna Post discusses the dos and don'ts of an encore wedding. And according to Ms. Post, the sky's the limit when it comes to the encore gown: If the bride desires a particular wedding dress, she may wear it. However, there are plenty of options for a woman seeking an alternative to the ball gown she wore the first time around. The looks we selected from the latest runway collections put a stylish twist on typical bridal style, ranging from sleek and sexy to short and sweet. Some even feature a blush of color, but all are perfect for the bride ready to make a statement on her special day. 

Feminine and stunning, these designs are perfect for the sophisticated bride ready to wow her soon-to-be husband at a formal wedding celebration.

Though it's perfectly acceptable for an encore bride to wear white, she certainly doesn't have to. These fashionable gowns take a wedding-day look to a whole new level with a palette of fresh, pretty colors.
