Project Description

This project examined the wedding ritual and what this experience was like for couples in which at least one person had recently remarried. In-depth interviews were conducted with 14 couples, and analysis focused on what type of weddings participants had, compared to their first wedding, and if they prepared for the wedding in a similar or different way compared to their previous experience(s).
