Courthouse Wedding Dress Chic

Courthouse Wedding Dresses to Class Up City Hall

Keeping your wedding simple may involve a courthouse and a justice-of-the-peace. But that doesn’t mean you have to skimp on your wedding dress. These days, simple civil ceremonies are becoming more popular, and we’re trending right alongside, with courthouse wedding dress styles that compliment your personal vibe. In this article, we’ll define the city hall wedding dress, offer some options on dresses for your informal wedding and give you tools for finding the dress of your dreams from Devotion Dresses.

What is a City Hall Wedding Dress?

The classic city hall wedding dress for courthouse nuptials is a tea-length dress of satin and lace featuring a timeless, elegant design. Brides who love a retro look will appreciate this style, while modern tastes may run to tailored suits, sleek separates or even jumpsuits. If you really want to make a statement, look for bold silhouettes that feature asymmetrical bodices and a few ruffles. Here are some examples of city hall/courthouse wedding dresses:

Nataly Wedding Dress

Fashioned of crepe and jacquard fabric, this sheath-cut wedding outfit makes the perfect civil wedding dress. The two-in-one styling means you can wear the long over-skirt for the ceremony and remove it afterward to reveal the tea-length skirt beneath – ideal attire for a post-ceremony celebration at a local restaurant. Nataly is strapless with a sweetheart neckline and an open-back design. Part of the Dollhouse Collection, it’s a popular choice with brides-to-be who appreciate its timeless appeal. Like all of our dresses, Nataly features a European design and will be custom-sewn to your measurements.

Civil Ceremonies Aren’t Always in Courthouses

When you contact your justice of the peace to officiate your ceremony, you’ll be asked where the wedding will be conducted. While many couples choose to get married in a courthouse, that’s not your only option. You can rock your city hall wedding dress in a park, on the beach or in your backyard. A civil ceremony simply means you’re not exchanging your vows in a church setting. Some of the most beautiful wedding settings are outdoors (assuming you don’t have to contend with inclement weather). So before you head to city hall, consider what venue best suits the two of you. And choose whatever wedding dress you’ve got your heart set on. It’s your special day, and whether you do it up big or keep it on the down-low, you’ll be just as married – and look just as lovely in your civil wedding dress!

What Features Should I Look For in a Civil Court Wedding Dress?

Naturally, you can wear any wedding dress you want to on your special day. But if you really want to keep it simple and elegant, here are some features to look for in a courthouse wedding dress:

  • Knee Length: We recommend that if you choose a floor-length dress, you choose a two-in-one style so you can remove the longer top skirt after the ceremony.
  • Beautifully Suited: A tailored wedding suit is a great choice because it’s just dressy enough but not too formal for a casual venue
  • Minimal Frou-Frou: Most brides who choose civil court weddings will elect to wear a wedding dress or outfit that has enough embellishments to sparkle but not so many that they overwhelm her outfit, particularly in an informal setting
