I am planning to get married at the SF Courthouse. We aren’t going to tell anyone ahead of time, and aren’t planning a reception after. (Mainly for financial reasons, and it is a lot less stress for us this way.) Its what we want. The location is beautiful.
I am trying to decide if I want a long dress, or a tea length dress. I am 5′ 2,” so of short stature. What do you ladies think for the dress?
These are the two I have in mind

You should make this a poll 🙂
I really like the long one because I think the neckline is gorgeous!

@cindalu: I adore the lines of the short one! It’s just so playful and sweet!
If I were to do a courthouse wedding I would definitely wear a short, dramatic dress like that with fabulous, bright shoes and a small, bright bouquet.

I like both dresses, but I like the short dress slightly more. I’m not a huge fan of the sash color, but the way the skirt poofs out a bit is really, really cute. If you did go with the long one though I think it’s really elegant and beautiful. You can have a really elegant sleek look that I think would be gorgeous.

Thanks so much ladies! If I get the short dress I would switch out the sash I think. I do like the elagance of the long one too. It is so hard to decide!

@cindalu: I think the long one Will make you feel like a Bride 🙂 the short one is pretty but I really think you should add that extra element to make you feel bridal!

The long def has a more “bridal” effect, but the short one is beyond adorable.

They’re both very pretty, dear. I, too, very much favour simple, clean, and classic lines. However, since you seem to favour something that states ‘bridal’, may I suggest a compromise? The short dress is not really tea length, which is actually defined as approximately mid-calf-length. Perhaps you could find something slightly longer, pair it with short white gloves and a bird cage veil for a very elegant and bridal vintage look. I got married in Europe, where it is required to first have a civil wedding, and this is exactly what I chose. This silhouette has now become popular again, and thus, easier to find. Ebay and Etsy are good sources for genuine vintage finds, although these are becoming more expensive, as more and more people have come to appreciate vintage clothing.
