Hey everyone! This is my first post, and I’m excited to be a part of this community.
A little background:
My fiance and I met while I was traveling abroad last summer. I was working and traveling in Turkey, and needless to say, we fell for each other. Fast forward to a year later, and so much has happened between us since then (international move, cultural adjustment, lots of love & patience) and now we’re planning to marry.
In order to expedite this process (international marriages can be a lengthy process) we’ve decided to do a city hall ceremony, and have (2) reception(s) (1 in NY, 1 in Turkey) in the undetermined future.
In any case, I’ve been searching for a city hall appropriate dress that’s 1. Classic, 2. Beautiful, 3. Fitting, 4. Not too expensive, 5. Easily accessible…
He’s insistent that I don’t need to be particular or over the top, because we will have a “real” wedding in the future. And I get it. At the same time, I *need* a beautiful dress. Our photos are important for immigration purposes, and if we’re doing photos, we’re doing a pretty dress. 🙂

Congrats and welcome to the Hive!
That dress is beautiful and very appropriate for a CH wedding. With some great shoes and accessories you got it!
Merhaba ve mutluluk (that is all I remember from my college friend from Turkey)

Yep I love that one you picked. I don’t think I could find a better one if I tried. But I might be biassed since my favorite dress is cut almost exactly like that. Congrats and welcome!

I think that’s very pretty and perfect for a courthouse wedding.

thats gorgeous! i was going in the same direction for my SF city hall ceremony, but when I went wedding dress shopping, I tried this on and love it and thinks it matches the venue, as SF city hall is so pretty and historic looking.

Its classic, simple, sophistocated just perfect. If I didn’t already have a dress, I’d so get that.
