Weddings are all about memorializing the love between two people. Some couples go for a grand celebration while some want the destination wedding of their dreams. But some want an intimate, simple ceremony like a city hall wedding. So if you’re the type of couple who would go for the latter, we’d love to let you know that one of the best places to get hitched is at NYC City Hall! Let’s look at some of the best dresses for your city hall wedding.
Aside from their modern flair and sexy vibe, jumpsuits are perfect for steering your way inside a city hall building. From flutter sleeves to strapless, halterneck to plunging neckline, or body-hugging to wide-leg pants jumpsuits, there is a wide range of styles and prices for every bride. Bridal jumpsuits are an excellent substitute for city hall wedding dresses.
Tea-length wedding dresses often feature a full skirt (below the knee but above the ankle) and a pinched waist. Just a bit of trivia, a tea-length dress is named such because it’s what women wore to the tea table in the 1920s. This dress is perfect for those longing for a traditional wedding gown but more casual – just suitable for a city hall wedding.
Classic Lace Gown
Who said you could not look classic and timeless at your city hall wedding? A lace gown is a perfect dress to wear for that ethereal look. You can opt for a vintage style or an off-the-shoulder modern look. Either way, a classic lace gown never goes out of style.
Minimalistic Slip Dress
A simple, clean slip dress is the best for the minimalist bride. Show off all your curves with a sexy and sophisticated silk slip dress. Though a slip dress is simple, it need not be boring as you can opt for various styles. It can include beading, sequins, and lace, with a cowl or v-neckline and spaghetti straps or halter neckline. And the length can range from mini, midi, to floor length. Since it’s body-hugging, consider wearing seamless undergarments or shapewear.
A bridal mini dress is not just for a second outfit; it’s best for your NYC City Hall wedding! This dress might be short, but it can make an enormous statement. Don’t worry if there’s no train because you can attach one! With style, the possibilities are endless. Think of puffed sleeves, short tulle, ruffles, extravagant bows, sparkly embellishments, vintage lace, or classy crepe fabric. And the best part is, aside from showing off your legs, you can show off your trendy shoes with a mini dress.
Just because your civil ceremony will be over and done in under 30 minutes doesn’t mean you have to cut back on style. When it comes to wedding dresses, there are no rules but your own. So go ahead and pick that dress that’s well-suited to your personality but comfortable enough to take you to city hall, then some photos outside or to a restaurant for some celebratory drinks.
