Sorry, I wasn’t really sure where to post this.
So, our wedding is in June and originally we planned for a wedding in Mass. with the groom’s brother officiating. Well, we are now having the wedding in VA, where his brother cannot legally marry us. Anyway, we began looking for officiants and after finally getting through to a couple (Alexandria has a list of like 7 people who can legally wed you outside of the clergy)…they were unavailable on our wedding day. One suggested that we just get married beforehand so that’s what we’re doing. We’re getting married today! It works out well because now Future Brother-In-Law can actually officiate the ceremony in June as planned. I’ve gotten way off tangent, sorry…but I’m trying to figure out what we should wear today to the legal ceremony. Any ideas? P.S. It will not take place in the courthouse, but in an office nearby.

I’d go for just a nice little dress you think you look awesome in!

Congrats! My husband and I just had our private legal ceremony on Tuesday, but we are still hosting a wedding in September 2012. I couldn’t imagine getting married in anything but a white dress, so I found a white sundress from Target, paired it with a Navy blue jacket (Navy is our wedding color) and some awesome heels.
But really, wear what makes you comfortable. You’re going to feel beautiful no matter what because you are marrying your love today!

we kinda did this, but it was just the two of us at the courthouse after hours. he wore cargo shorts and a collared golf shirt with flipflops and i wore a nice tank with a print skirt and flip flops. it was so “us”!!!!
btw…have someone take your picture. we didnt think of that, and i regret not having something to capture the day, even if its the waitress at the restaurant you go to afterwards.

How cool! I agree with pps, a little dress would be fine–it’s cold today though! Are you using Lance? Make sure you get pictures!

We’re having our legal ceremony a week from today! I’m just wearing a dress. Nothing fancy, just a summery one.

My fiance and I are going to do the same thing before we host our formal wedding in October. I say wear a dress that makes you feel great! Congrats!

This is what I wore:
bleah. I can’t seem to post a picture…. anyways, here’s a link to where my pictures are already posted: http://www.projectwedding.com/biography/list/dodgercpkl/20-civil-ceremony
The only thing that I wish I’d done in retrospect, is to have gotten a bouquet from a local store or even just a couple of flowers for me to hold.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. We are on our way out the door! A friend is joining us and will take a couple of pictures. We won’t exchange our rings until the June ceremony though…We have something extra to look forward to.
