10 Adrianna Papell Gowns That Work For Your Second Wedding
One of the best ways to celebrate your second wedding is with a fun and often show-stopping gown. Whether it’s for a city hall ceremony or a destination elopement, a second wedding dress can still be formal without looking bridal. Find a color that flatters your skin tone, and yes, white or off-white is still acceptable.
So where should you look for a second wedding dress? Designer Adrianna Papell offers a wide variety of gowns that fit any style you’re going for: from long, elegant gowns to short and frilly styles and everything in between.
This is your chance to make a statement and find something that you truly love. Here are some of our favorite options that work for a second wedding.
For a simple yet sophisticated wedding-day look, we adore this ivory pearl dress.
This full-lined sheath dress is covered in sequins and beading over sheer mesh fabric. The square neckline is classic and the tank straps provide coverage so you can still wear your comfy everyday bra.
This dress is perfect if you’re wanting something that’s both comfortable and stylish. Plus, you could totally wear this dress again for a cocktail-attire event.
This next dress is definitely our most bridal-like design, but it definitely works for a second wedding.
Lovers of lace will be smitten by this short, all-over guipure lace dress. The sleeveless dress boasts a sheath silhouette and a high neckline with a sheer illusion yoke. The lace has a stunning floral motif and is ultra feminine. We love how the lace hangs a little lower than the strapless mini dress underneath.
One of the great benefits of this dress is that it works for all ages and sizes, and is perfect for your intimate city hall nuptials. It’s also a great option for a bridal brunch or wedding shower.
If you’re searching for your “something blue”, look no further! This spring-tastic A-line gown, in the lovely glacier color, is absolutely stunning. It’s a total winner for your evening garden wedding or if you’re saying “I do” at the arboretum.
The floor-length gown features colorful hand-sewn florals, made of beads and sequins, and the sheer illusion dolman flutter sleeves are super dreamy.
For final touches, a gentle pleated skirt and sweeping train allow the bride to move freely on her big day. A keyhole back adds a hint of sexy to this formal gown. Once again, you can totally wear this dress after the wedding for charity dinners and black-tie affairs.
If you want to look bold and totally non-bridal, then this black cocktail dress is a sexy choice.
The short sheath gown is dazzling through all-over beading. We love how the beading continues through the sheer long bishop sleeves as well. For a semi-sensual touch, a small v-neck and side slit in the skirt do the trick.
This look is definitely an upgrade from the classic LBD, or “Little Black Dress”. After the wedding, wear this bad girl out for ladies night on the town or an intimate dinner date.
Nothing is more chic than a jumpsuit, and this off-the-shoulder number is dynamite. What we love about this look is that it’s not only trendy, but age appropriate no matter when you’re saying “I do” again.
I know we’re slightly cheating since this isn’t a dress, per se, but we couldn’t help ourselves. This ivory style features lightweight woven stretch crepe and a comfy wide-leg silhouette. The feminine bow accents are just the icing on the shoulders.
The great part about this jumpsuit is that you could dress it up or down. For a fun addition, a sparkly belt would help accentuate your curves, or keep things simple with diamond studs and a pair of your favorite pumps.
We love a one-shoulder gown for a flirty moment. This Grecian-style evening gown features metallic beads and sequins throughout the design. The beadwork and ornamentation are done completely by hand for an extra-special touch.
The nude color is a feminine choice for the bride that wants some color but nothing too out-of-the-box. Wispy tulle godets at the bottom of the ankle-length skirt add fun volume. This also allows you to show off a pair of super-cute shoes.
We picture this gown for a formal event and it works for every season. Since the gown is heavily embellished, we recommend adding one or two dainty pieces of jewelry in whatever metal complements your skin tone: gold, silver or rose gold!
If you’re begging for something sparkly, this next dress is a winner. This glam sequin evening gown, featured in a lead color, is fabulous. The gown boasts short sleeves and a long, flowy skirt. A crew neckline pairs nicely with the scoop back.
Here’s another floral option for your second wedding, this time as a short, sheath dress. This elegant dress has a fitted, figure-flattering silhouette featuring all-over floral embroidery.
The short sleeves and boat/bateau neckline are feminine accents, along with the lovely midnight blue bow sash.
This dress screams bridal brunch or a tea party-themed bridal shower if it’s not what you envisioned for a second wedding dress. It’s also a dress that you can wear after the big event for your Mother’s Day outing, Easter service or even in a business-casual office setting. It’s totally versatile!
White-hot. Modern. Bold. Daring. Need we say more?
This stunning ivory crepe jumpsuit is a take-notice look for your big day. It’s chic and structured with a boat neckline, fitted pants and a contemporary trend—a cape!
Worried about getting in and out of this jumpsuit easily? Have no fear! The cape splits in the back and features a hidden zipper.
Bonus: this is a great way to stay modest while also showing some skin in a way that you can look and feel comfortable in. We could stare at this design all day and never get bored with it. Complete the look with sparkly heels and a cool beaded clutch.
Calling all column dress-loving gals! This beautiful design has numerous features that we adore. The all-over foil floral embroidery is so feminine and elegant. The ivory silver color works year round and is a stunning option for an evening wedding.
The formal gown has a small keyhole cutout near the top of the halter neckline and the fitted bodice creates a nice silhouette with the straight skirt. Silver heels and matching silver jewelry is the perfect way to round out this beautiful second wedding look.
