Who said a city hall bride can't wear a ball gown as her wedding dress?
If you're thinking of having an intimate wedding (or elopement) at your local city hall, but don't think you can get away with wearing a traditional gown, think again. There are plenty of ball gown designs that aren't over the top and that won't hinder your movements or time in front of the justice of the peace.
Here are a few of ieie Bridal's more understated, but beautiful ball gowns that are perfect for city hall weddings.
Our Rachel dress is a modest ball gown style that features a lace bodice accented with beading around the neckline and sleeves. With half sleeves, a rounded neckline, and full coverage bodice, this ball gown is a go-to option for city hall brides, as it's modest enough to walk through a government office in, but still has a basic ball gown design.
A convertible ball gown wedding dress is for the bride who wants it all. Our Damara dress is a three piece convertible style that includes a long, princess tulle skirt that can be pulled away to reveal a short lace dress with open back and sleeves or a short satin dress. Wear the long style for your ceremony, then change into one of the other styles for your reception!
Just because you're getting hitched in the courthouse doesn't mean you can't show a wee bit of skin. The Archie design is a beautiful ball gown that features an illusion neckline and upper back that's detailed with floral lace. The lace also extends down the bodice and skirt. So elegant!
Want to add a little color to your wedding dress style? Consider this A-line ball gown with embroidered lace bodice, cap sleeves, illusion lace back, and pearl pink skirt. The A-line silhouette is a flattering style on any body, and the soft pink color is just the right amount of color for city hall.
This simple, but elegant ball gown features a floral lace bodice, cinched waist, and taffeta skirt. This dress is perfect for the city hall bride who likes a classic style that won't overwhelm her natural blushing bride beauty.
In the end, it doesn't really matter what you choose, as long as you're happy. If you want a no-holds-bar ball gown, go for it. It might be one of the only times you'll have the chance to wear one!
