If you have suffered the pain and disillusionment of divorce and are ready to get married the second time, you are truly a lucky person. Finding love twice in a lifetime is like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack but this also proves that anybody can still find their soul mate somewhere. So if you are indeed planning a wedding you may be searching for second wedding ideas that include children or at least want to know the right etiquette for second weddings. Some time ago the general idea was that second weddings should be rather low key and not the big splash associated with a first wedding. This is not the case anymore. You can go as big and bold as you want. In fact we watched a show a few weeks back on elaborate weddings. In one case it was the bride's second wedding and the budget was $400 000!! Yes, that's right four hundred thousand dollars. The lighting at the reception alone was $45 000. A really nice touch was that her two boys from a previous marriage (about 8 and 10 years old) both walked her down the aisle. So you can clearly see that the choice is yours. If you have this kind of money, go for it and if you are on a budget, that is okay too. But more importantly to consider is the affect a second marriage will have on your children or on both sets of children if your partner has children from a previous marriage. This can be a very traumatic experience and has to be handled carefully. All the children involved should be the first to know about your upcoming marriage. Depending on the different personalities, you should use your discretion about breaking the news. Consider calling a family meeting to make the announcement or rather take a shy and introvert child somewhere they like to go when sharing the news. This should after all be very good news and the wedding will be a celebration of your love for each other. Hopefully the children will feel the same way. It can cause some stress in any family though since two households will have to come together and function as one. This may take some patience and a lot of love but it can be done and has been done thousands of time with great results. Next to be informed about the upcoming wedding should be both pairs of parents and ex-partners as well. Both the grandparents and ex-partners can be a great asset when it comes to assuring the children about their roll in the new family. Children can easily feel threatened but new siblings and will need all the support they can get. They will react better to support and advice from people they love and know well like grandparents, a dad or mom who they are comfortable with. Getting ideas for second weddings that include children is a very important aspect that should be a priority over all the aspects of planning a wedding. Children will immediately feel comfortable with the idea of a wedding if they are included in the details. The following articles will contain very useful information regarding all the different aspects of second wedding ideas.
