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.

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!

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:)
