As an experienced wedding planner in Beverly Hills, I'm often asked how one goes about bringing the same dignity and glamour to a 2nd wedding that they did for their 1st. My answer: Don't! Make it Better! Then I recommend the final words in book selects. For planning: 'Emily Post On Second Weddings' by Peggy Post. And for the perfect remarriage vows: 'With These Words...I Thee Wed: Contemporary Wedding Vows For Today's Couples' by Barbara Eklof. Nothing else compares!
