With the average cost of a wedding climbing steadily to over $30k, it’s no surprise many couples are opting for a less-traditional wedding day. That’s where city hall weddings come in — they provide the perfect stylish but low-key ceremony to a wedding day, while also giving couples the flexibility to celebrate their reception the way they want to. Restaurant reception? Sure. Picnic in a park after the ceremony? Can do! Really, it’s the perfect solution to any couple looking to have more simple, meaningful day while still maintaining a sense of style.

But what to wear? Luckily, a city hall bride can wear anything on her big day. Jumpsuit? Short dress? Long gown? It’s really up to the bride! If you can’t decide what city hall wedding dress style is best for you, don’t despair! Check out our picks for the best looks for a city hall bride…

Short wedding dress
