I am conflicted about this and my dress won’y work for the courthouse 100% so definitely a no for me but I guess it depends on the dress

I say do it. But then again, I’m a little over the top. My rehearsal dress was technically a wedding dress, and I wore that to the church, dinner, and a couple of bars after. Unless you’ll feel self-conscious the whole time, why not get to wear it twice?!

I totally am planning to wear my wedding gown to my SF City Hall ceremony! If I had planned for a SF City Hall wedding from the start, I would have certainly chosen a different dress. But my gown is the one part of planning that my sisters, Mom and I spent a SUBSTANTIAL amount of time invested in finding and it’s the one piece of the planning process that we can all see though. In case it’s not clear, my wedding of 130people overlooking the ocean in Malibu is unable to take place in June, so my fiance and I are eloping at SF City Hall and throwing a party later when we’re healed from all this and we can plan normally again. 

 

Wear your dress!! You’ll feel so festive in it and it will make the photos so beautiful and memorable.

tess90 :  Let’s see a pic of your dress!! I’m sure it’ll be so cute and you’ll love seeing yourself in the special dress you chose from the beginning. While my dress (vicenta by Pronovias) is definitely not what I’d have chosen for City Hall, it’s still so important to document that dress on our wedding day through photos. Don’t worry about what ogher people think, even though you’ve had to make changes, this is still YOUR day. You’re the bride, you can do what you want! 😉
