Getting hitched isn't all about the fanfare; it's about love, which is the very reason you're heading to the altar in the first place! Whether you choose to seal the deal in church or at court, simplicity can be the key to an elegant and stylish civil wedding. Here are five style solutions for the chic city hall bride!


1. Ruffled top + pleated midi skirt + pumps

Go the ultra-femme route by tucking a ruffled top into a metallic pleated midi for an outfit that's both prim and on-trend. Also, invest in a pair of pristine white pumps—you can wear them with anything, even after the wedding!

3. Off-shoulder maxi dress + hair jewelry + block-heeled sandals

If you're a boho bride, float down the aisle in a gauzy floral dress that's got a hint of something blue! Gold pins send a subtle nod to this season's hair jewelry trend, and simple white sandals will look perfect peeking out from under your floor-skimming hem.
