Wedding Etiquette: Second Wedding

  • Are parents obligated to pay for a daughter's second wedding if they paid for her first?

    No, although many parents do offer to help pay some of the expenses. Often, the bride and groom pay the expenses themselves, especially when parents paid for a first wedding. The decision is entirely up to the couple and their families.

  • Is it appropriate for a bride to invite her ex-husband and former in-laws to her second wedding?

    It's usually best to exclude an ex-spouse (his attendance could upset some of the other guests), but inviting former in-laws is another story. If the groom and his family don't mind their presence, and if the bride and her former in-laws feel comfortable, then it's fine to invite them.
