The Best Courthouse Wedding Dresses for 2023

A princess gown or a sweeping dress with a long train would prove to be a bit cumbersome as you navigate the halls of a government building. The best courthouse wedding dresses are elegant, but keep practicality and ease in mind.

They tend to be ankle length or shorter, and are often tailored in a way akin to suiting, made of materials that feel fitting for the civil ceremony. There are plenty of minimalist options that fit the bill, 

but just because your nuptials are straightforward doesn’t mean your dress has to be. You can go for a more party-ready look with a mini hemline or strapless upper.
