Here’s my story: Fi and I have been together for 9 years, engaged for 3 months. We both just want to be married already, but are planning a wedding for July-intimate and laid back and fun. We decided to do a pre-wedding elopement mostly for insurance reasons and though that is not particularly romantic I will be damned if I don’t look pretty and celebrate and create romance for this little courthouse rendevous (followed by dinner and wine and who knows). Here are my 3 best choices so far. I like a vintage look. * I have a light blue bolera sweater with a blue ribbon tie that I could with wear either light colored dress. OR I may try to get this beauty.
Option 1-Sweet 50s Prom look
Option 2- Pinup in white
I may try to find a simple cream form fitting dress to go with that shrug as well. I would love to keep the color light but Marilyn Monroe got married in brown at her courthouse wedding so I suppose anything goes!
All suggestions welcome!

Im a big retro fan too (I have an Ava Gardner pic 🙂 I love the white dress, has the right amount of sexy and you would look amazing in that dress with beautiful bright/colorful shoes!

I’m torn between the sweet 50s prom look and the white pinup dress. You wear them both so well!

Love them both! You could wear the white pin-up dress for now and possibly save the flowy dress for your intimate July wedding. However, if you are planning on getting another dress for your July wedding then my vote goes for the flowy dress.

Honestly you can’t go wrong with any of your choices. I think I like the cream dress the most, though.

Is the second dress Bettie Page? I LOVE that one! I want to get the green one for my shower.
They both look great on you, but I do prefer the first. Not sure how that cute bolero will match the blue on the first dress though.
Love your style, btw!

I love both of them.. The pinup one ( second dress ) – does scream ” courthouse” While the first one is a romantic dress that has a really glamy/classy look to it and can of course be for a courthouse ceremony. Theyre both gorgoues, but I think the first one Is beautiful so thats my vote!

When I saw the first one I thought “Oh, a little too Prom” but then I saw the 2nd dress and I was like “Damn she looks GOOD in that!” I think the 2nd dress cuts in all the right places. It looks so fab on you.

I think they both look lovely. My vote would probably be for the second dress.

I’m a sucker for a white dress and the neckline of the third dress makes such a statement! It might be fun too, if you could replace the bow on the front and substitute a belt/bow that matches your shoes.
