Just curious. FI and I are getting married by JOP on our wedding date. Afterwards, we plan to go to a really nice dinner and celebrate with our close family and friends. I’ve been thinking about what sort of dress I would wear. Of course it wouldn’t be a long wedding dress. Perhaps a vintage short dress. I was thinking of possibly ordering from dollycouture.com, but I’m not sure if I can bring myself to spend that much money for a courthouse wedding. So, my inspiration is:
So, out of curiousity and to make it fun, what dress would you wear at your courthouse wedding?!

I would wear Marchesa’s Lila

I have a crush on this dress and would use it if we either had a garden wedding or a JOP wedding.

Definitely daytime wear! I would look for something with some type of sleeves. I’d feel funny wearing a strapless dress in a courthouse, especially with everyone around me in business suits. If I had to wear strapless I’d wear a bolero or jacket that I could take off after we leave the courthouse. Something like these.

Probably something like what I wore as my getaway dress…

I would probably wear something similar to what I wore for our simple wedding; JCrew and I plan to wear it again with boots and a cardigan for our anniversary photo session. Court house is usually simple and clean but hell if you want to jazz it up go for it! 🙂

I’m wearing this for our upcoming courthouse wedding:
I didn’t want white/ivory and I don’t do strapless so this style and in grey was my first choice. It’s a bridesmaids dress from BHLDN, but it’s also available in ivory from their website. I definitely wanted something reasonably priced and that I could wear again afterward. I love the dresses from Dolly Couture though! If I wanted a more ‘weddingy’ dress and could afford it, I’d get one of theirs in a heartbeat!

@kittyface: I like that! =)
I was thinking about getting a blush pink dress as well. I’m obsessed with them for some reason. I could also go with a emerald green dress since it fits my red hair along with FI’s. We could easily match. Hmm.. now I’m getting ideas!

im not a sex in the city fan but i liked what Carrie wore to her courthouse wedding and if i had to do it again i would keep with something similar, tea length but maybe not the jacket as i know i would be nervous & sweat

I suggest wearing the dress you will want to see on your Fireplace Mantle for the next 60 years…. and yes, I am presuming you will be married for at least 60 years:)
ALWAYS wear the dress which will look best on you in your wedding photos,, IMO. The wedding day flies by, however the photo is Foorrrrrrreeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvveeeeeerrrrrrrrrr;)
So, it really doesn’t matter if you get married at the courthouse or in a Grand Cathedral… The question to ask is: Will this dress that I am wearing in the wedding photo with my husband and I standing under the tree look as good in 2060, as it did in 2012?
Have fun at your wedding:)
