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.

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 DH 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

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!
