27 Dresses That Will Look Perfect at Your Courthouse Wedding
Very Parisian-chic, mais non?
Needle & Thread ($524)
Would look just as beautiful with a pair of metallic flats as it would with strappy stilettos.
Because you’re more of a suit-and-(no)-tie kind of gal.
Monique Lhuillier jacket ($2,300) and pants ($990)
The straps mean you get that delicate neckline without worrying about any, uh, slips.
Alice + Olivia ($440)
3-d Lace Midi
Comfortable enough to head straight from the ceremony to the airport to jet off on your honeymoon.
ASOS Edition ($285)
A genius blend of masculine and feminine.
Lela Rose (price upon request)
The nude slip underneath is what makes this peekaboo lace feel so unique. That and the easy, flattering silhouette.
Donna Morgan ($228)
You’re never going to want to take off this elegant as hell one-piece.
Sally LaPointe ($1,650)
Tie-waist Skirt Suit
You could easily mix and match both these pieces with others in your wardrobe and wear them again.
Yeon jacket ($1,213) and skirt ($829)
Wear this ’70s-inspired one-piece for the ceremony and then head immediately to your favorite disco.
By the way ($88)
Mesh Tulle Gown
The T-shirt cut up top makes this stunner feel a little less formal, but no less special, than other ball gowns.
