ulie Weingarden Dubin speaks from
aisle-walking experience. The sec-
ond-time bride has two formal wed-
dings under her "satin sash," giving
her all the etiquette savvy she needed to
write How to Plan an Elegant Second
Wedding, Achieving the Wedding You Want
with Grace and Style (Prima Publishing,
$16.95). Dubin, a Huntington Woods resi-
dent, combined her first-hand experience
with her career as a national magazine
journalist, giving readers a well-
researched guide and invaluable advice.
In welcoming her readers to the "sec-
ond-time sisterhood," Dubin writes, "...
this book will walk you through the wed-
ding prep steps and let you know which
rituals aren't necessary the second time
around. You can make this wedding
much more personalized than your first."
Dubin and her fiance, for example, wrote
their own vows and only registered for
things that "really meant something to
us."
Dubin talked to many second-time
brides who felt they were left out of the
mix when it came to wedding planning
info. Becky, for instance, wanted to know

Julie and

if it was 'proper' to wear white, to marry in
a church and to have bridesmaids.
"You can," says Dubin. In fact, her book
centers around three beliefs:
1. Every wedding is a celebration. It
doesn't matter how many times you've worn
a fancy white dress. This is the first time you
and your groom are marrying each other!
2. There are no rules. Besides, if
you're divorced, you're not going to get
hung up on some ancient etiquette. After
all, you've already broken the rules.
3. Second chances are sweet.
The book mines a plethora of resources,
including relationship experts, psycholo-
gists, financial planners and lawyers, as well
as "the usual suspects" whose jobs it is to
plan and coordinate weddings. In addition,
Dubin shares the stories of second-time
brides and grooms from around the country.
From "Getting Over Your Second-
Wedding Guilt," to "Letting Your Kids Join
In," How to Plan an Elegant Second Wedding
provides advice and direction in an easy-to-
read, conveniently sized, soft-cover guide-
book that could become the second-time-
around-bride's bible.
