Courthouse Weddings Are In; Here's What You Should Wear
It is no surprise that covid-19 pandemic impacted the bridal industry in major ways, micro-weddings were essentially the only option for 2 years. While we are now able to gather with our family and friends, intimate courthouse weddings aren’t going anywhere.
Courthouse weddings are appealing for a multitude of reasons. Instead of worrying about decorations and caterers, you get to focus on what is really important: marrying your love. The icing on the cake is that you get to do it in a stunning location and have a glam courthouse wedding. Carrie Bradshaw definitely did it right when she opted for a civil ceremony over the extravagant affair.
With a courthouse wedding, the main decision gets to also be the most fun: what to wear! You get to have complete creative freedom and find something YOU really love, without the pressure of trying to please everyone else. When you first start searching, the dress options seem endless. With so many to choose from, it is important that you pick the dress that fits your personal style. You want to feel fully confident on your wedding day, so go with the look that makes you feel beautiful but also comfortable. Are you ready to have your Carrie Bradshaw moment?
