Courthouse Brides: what did you wear?

Not sure if you are only interested in ball gowns and suits, but I wore neither. I wore a knee-length, cream colored dress. The options really are completely open (that is, there are no rules or etiquette to follow). I wanted something inexpensive that didnt need alterations and something I could wear again to other events, so that guided my shopping.

I didn’t go to the court house, but we hired an officiant and got married outside in an alleyway (thanks Covid!) and I wore a black full length dress and it was cold, so I had a faux fur shawl.

Not courthouse but we had an officiant and got married locally, I wore a formal gown that had pockets… and I loved it! 

*mine was full length, but I couldn’t find a pic of that one*

@castalia:  I got an off the wrack dress because my original dress didn’t fit me because I’d gotten pregnant lol it looked sorta 1930s and paired it with blue heels, had my six pence, horseshoe, and pearl necklace passed down in my family. My friend did my makeup, i made my bouquet and my veil, as well as my husband’s bout. He wore a black suit. We didn’t care that we dressed up for it. It made it more sweet for us.

Just did city hall on Monday and couples obviously getting married ranged from knee/tea length dresses to full ball gowns that needed 1-2 people to help hold the train. Mine was this one, which was rather middle-of-the-pack in relation to others’. TBH, I would’ve preferred it without the train.

@elderberry:  Thanks! It wasn’t the most practical, but I do admit the train made for pretty pictures!

You really can’t tell from this stock photo but I wore this dress that had so much glitter that it was still in our witnesses car over a year later when she was trying to sell it lol.

@castalia:  Thank you, it was and I’m glad i did it. Sorry i only wrote about it vs providing a photo. I’m not one to share personal photos on a forum like this in case someone recognizes me and then knows all of my business i share here. It seems to have bothered another poster, i hope it didn’t bother you. Xx
