Hi, My Fiance and I decided we are going to get married at the courthouse, and save our money for a trip to Florida for our honeymoon. I would like to wear a nice white dress, just not an actual wedding dress. I have one picked out that i fell in love with, but I am concerned if it is appropriate or not for a courthouse wedding. I am concerned with the length of the dress, after one of my friends pointed out that it looked “hoochie”. I would really like to hear some honest opinions on what others think of this dress, i don’t want to be embarrassed on my big day but i really like the dress! Also what should my Fiance wear???

We did a courthouse wedding and to be honest we were the most dressed up people there! So many other couples were in jeans and Tshirts. I couldn’t believe it. I wore a more conservative basic dress (sleeveless and cut just above my knees) and my fiance/husband wore dress pants and a collared shirt with a tie. We’re still having an actual wedding with a church ceremony and recpetion when he comes back from deployment.
Anyway, about the dress. Honest opinion? Don’t hate me but I don’t know if it’s appropriate. To me it looks very ‘prom’ or like you’re going to a party, not getting married. I think it’s super cute for any other fun event but maybe not a courthouse wedding. That dress is very trendy but you make look back and wish you did something more classic or timeless. That’s at least how I viewed it. I say if you absolutely love it get it and wear out to dinner after your courthouse ceremony or for Florida! But personally I would try to find something different.
I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings! Good luck and have a fabulous day!

I don’t think the dress is “hoochie” its very cute. Your Fiance should complement the dress with maybe a button down shirt with jeans or dress slacks and shoes. You will be fine.
