You just got engaged and you are already over the stressful planning that goes along with weddings. So you and your fiance have opted for a courthouse wedding and you’re curious how to choose the best courthouse wedding dress. There are only a few things you need to make your courthouse wedding look amazing-a gorgeous bouquet for the bride, a talented photographer, a classic suit for the groom and the perfect dress to wear. Every courthouse is so different and provides such a unique vibe- from beachy coastal Laguna Hills, fairytale magic vibes at Pasadena City Hall or chic and modern at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. Each courthouse is unique and beautiful in their own way. From shooting a ton of courthouse weddings, I have seen it all and put together a variety of different styles for you to choose from with some awesome ideas for various shops to choose your perfect dress.
SLEEK AND MODERN:
There is something super classy about a sleek and modern dress for your courthouse wedding. It’s not typical to choose this for a bigger celebration which makes it that much more individual and unique for your intimate day. BHLDN has so many tasteful options for sleek and modern choices. Check out this jaw dropping jumpsuit here!
These brides I photographed did such an amazing job at choosing something unique yet refined.
Who said you can’t wear the wedding dress of your dreams? These brides looked stunning in their traditional gowns and it made for timeless photos.
CASUAL AND CUTE:
This is probably the most common choice for a courthouse wedding and I am all about it. Just because a dress is casual doesn’t mean it’s not going to be perfect, jaw dropping and ideal for the most amazing photos. Some of my favorite dresses are from brides below- they looked so stunning and fits the vibe of the courthouse perfectly. For more dress ideas, anthropologie sells the best courthouse options, here is a winner and such a casual yet sophisticated look.
For more courthouse wedding dress shops check out, REVOLVE, Jenny Yoo, Etsy, ASOS, Banana Republic, Reformation, Lulus and I have even had brides find some awesome options on Amazon (of course right!).
At the end of the day, find a dress that helps to tell your story-are you two more casual or do you love to show off your unique personalities? How to choose the best courthouse wedding dress is very personal and is something that should be fun and part of the whole wedding experience!
