Wedding looks at the court
For many women, a court wedding doesn’t necessarily require a lot of disguises like the white wedding ceremony. However, this is where many brides go wrong, as the line between keeping things calm and not bothering to make an effort blurs.
Courthouse weddings generally require a more courteous and civil look. Therefore, back then, couples usually opted for suits as their formal wedding look.
Well, not anymore.
Things have changed since – for women at least. While the fashion look of men’s weddings is quite restrictive, there are many things women can and did to get married in style.
