A friend of mine is planning to get married at their local city hall with “just them two” no family or friends. How romantic... well I’m happy for them! Planning weddings can be very stressful for all involved both financially and emotionally and it is really hard to stop doing what everyone expects you to do (The big huge wedding) and to do just what makes you happy. In their case they choose a romantic trip to their local courthouse with a quiet dinner afterwards.
(...Mr. Big and Carrie anyone?).
Whether they will choose to have a bigger celebration with their friends and family at a later time is still up in the air.
In the meantime I get to help her find something to wear, she wants something modest, elegant yet romantic and feminine. So I started browsing around to see what other real city hall brides did for their special elopements and this is what I came up with. All these brides kept it simple but elegant.
