The Perfect Wedding Dresses for City Hall

For some brides, saying I do means walking down a candle-lit aisle in a ballgown and cathedral veil. For others, it means walking up the steps of City Hall in a sun dress and pair of sneakers. To both brides, and all the brides in between, we say congrats on doing it your way. Whatever makes you and your fiance feel comfortable and happiest is the way to go. So however you do you, whether that's through a black tie wedding with a five-course meal or brunch and vows with the judge, we raise our glasses of bubbly to you. 

Here's the thing: in each of these scenarios you'll probably want to wear a special dress, one that's meant for a very special day. Today we're talking wedding dresses that are perfect for City Hall. Short and sweet, ruffled and colorful, we've got them all. Here are some of our favorites.

 

Retro Short Ruffled Wedding Dress

Ruffles have become quite popular over the past year and this retro short wedding dress with strapless neckline is all about the ruffles. You can easily give it a pop of color with a pair of your favorite color shoes, and if it's cooler weather, just add a cardigan to your ensemble.  

 

Simple Modest Retro Wedding Dress

If simple is what you crave, then this modest, yet elegant tea-length wedding dress is perfect for a trip to the courthouse. It's fitted with sheer cap sleeves, a silver sash, and the back can be adorned with buttons or a zipper. 

 

Cowl Neck Slim A-line Wedding Dress

Just because you're saying your I do's at City Hall, doesn't mean you can't wear a full-length wedding gown. This soft cowl-neck dress is accented with a beaded sash and has an especially beautiful lace illusion back. To give it more sparkle you could wear a simple crystal necklace or give it a Marilyn Monroe vintage vibe by wearing a pair of satin gloves. 

 

Short Lace Wedding Dress

Keep your dress as short and sweet as your ceremony with a knee-length tulle and lace wedding dress. It's chic enough for a modern mood, but can easily be made to suit a retro style. Think peep-toe heels, pearls, and a bouquet of Black Eyed Susans.  

 

Retro Blush Pink Lace Wedding Dress

A blush pink lace wedding dress is perfect for the City Hall bride who wants to wear something even more unique. White is wonderful, but pink is pretty! This particular dress has a lace bodice, lace hem skirt, and is adorned with beads. The soft pink color adds to the blushing bride style!
