19 Casual Chic City Hall Wedding Dresses for Your Courthouse Wedding Day

If you are planning on getting hitched at City Hall, then you don't want to miss this list of 19 casual chic wedding dresses for your courthouse wedding day.

Civil ceremonies have gained more and more popularity over the past few years. These elopement style wedding days are easier to plan and are far lighter on your wallet. And for some brides and grooms - a big wedding just isn't their style. But just because you are planning a more low key wedding day, that doesn't mean your style can't be ultra chic. Some of our favorite bridal photo shoots come from more casual, yet well planned out, City Hall wedding days.
