Even though the traditional color to wear to your wedding is white, no rule states that you must pull a white outfit to your court wedding. Thankfully most modern brides are embracing change and styling things up. It’s totally okay to try other colors, styles and necklines too.
- White outfits: This doesn’t have to be boring or regular. If you must go with white, choose your preferred outfit and compliment with accents like hues or red, green or even blue. This should create an intriguing yet court-wedding-appropriate look.
- Lengths: Because it’s not the official church wedding, its okay not to wear a floor-length dress. Whatever length you feel comfortable in is just perfect.
- Necklines & slits: show some skin if you must, it is okay to look sexy to your court wedding. Opt for a low necklines or thigh high slits provided you are comfortable in it. You don’t want to keep adjusting your outfit on your special day.
