I am pretty sure we’re going to get married at the local courthouse. I have no idea what I should wear? I know SO will be wearing a black suit. I don’t want to be under or overdressed. Any imput would be greatly appreciated. 🙂 Thank you ladies.

We had a courthouse wedding two days before our proper wedding, courtesy of immigration issues. I wore a black and white knee length (just above the knee actually) dress with a black belt and black flats. I felt I was dressed in a very appropriate manner for the day. Hope this helps!
ETA: WOAH, holy big picture! I really should learn how to resize, I’ve been on WB long enough!

This is us at our civil ceremony. I just wanted something bright and patterned. It was summer so it was pretty easy to find.

I think you can wear whatever you want! Dress it up if you want!
Check out these lovely courthouse weddings:

Wear anything you want, I have seen everything from a full ballgown to a simple summer dress. No matter what you are still a bride, wear whatever makes you feel beautiful
I am secretly DYING for someone to wear this from DB so I can live vicariously through them:

wear whatever you want! I’ve attended a courthouse wedding and seen brides wearing anything from a full on ballgown to a flowy chiffon gown to a short simple white dress. Whatever floats your boat! 😀

Depends, Will this be your wedding or will you have an added ceremony? If its the only thing you are doing, go all out! Why not? Its still a wedding!
I did! I wore a tea lenght white dress, with a black sash, and black shoes and a cute sequined cardigan. and Darling Husband wore a suit. not a tux or anything. So it really depends but I say…. WHy not go all out?

Having worked for a judge, I’ve seen a lot of courthouse weddings, and I’ve seen brides in everything from their Tweety Bird jammies to full on big poufball white dresses. Just pick what you love and go from there, you’ll be fine 🙂

I wore a black skirt and a maroon top to my courthouse wedding. if i could go back in time i would’ve chosen a white dress or skirt, though so i would feel like a real bride.

@hersheykiss2087: Yeah I know what you mean. I will probably go with some sort of white dress. Just haven’t figured out what kind or anything. I just want it to feel sorta like a wedding. If that makes sense? 🙂

It IS a wedding! You will be excited, and don’t you wanna look lovely while you look at him and say I do? Anyway, will be going courthouse as well and I think Fiance will be in a suit and I will be wearing this:
And I am definitely going to get some pink roses and make a little bouquet to wear.
Can I also give you some fun visuals?
Here’s Marilyn and Joe (she wore a brown suit with fur collar)
Sorry to get all photo crazy, I just wanted to say you can wear whatever your heart desires-just make sure you feel pretty and can have a blast!
