Clothing Etiquette for a Courthouse Wedding
By Margo Dewey
eHow Contributor
When it comes to a courthouse wedding,
brides have several choices, including a
pantsuit, a sleek short dress or the
traditional long gown. The groom can decide
between a daytime suit or the formal black
tie and tails, among other options. Although
there are no definitive clothing etiquette
rules for the courthouse ceremony, the
couple may consider jeans to be too casual
for their wedding day.

Wedding Dress Etiquette

A courthouse wedding dress can be a
traditional long gown or a short tea-length
style. The personality of the bride dictates
the selection. The A-line and sheath gowns
have the right length and casual look for the
smaller courthouse venue. Generally
speaking, a full ball gown and mermaid-style
dress are considered too elegant and formal
for a simple ceremony. The proper etiquette
for wearing a tea length dress involves the
hem falling between the top of the calf and
ankle. The cocktail dress is also acceptable
with the hem situated just above or at the
knee. Because the courthouse wedding is
casual, adding a veil and train are optional.

Classic Wedding Suit

Instead of a wedding gown, a two-piece suit
is acceptable for a courthouse ceremony.
Match a white tailored pencil skirt with a
short-waisted jacket for a conservative
ensemble. Brides can also create the look of
a wedding dress suit by pairing a cocktail
dress with an elegant waistline jacket. The
appropriate fabrics to select for a wedding
suit are silk, linen and satin. A white or beige
pantsuit is also considered appropriate for a
courthouse wedding.

Traditional Groom Attire

The courthouse wedding attire for the groom
is casual, semi-formal or formal, but it should
match the style of the bride’s dress. If the
bride wears a long gown, then the groom
will wear a tailored suit. For a semi-formal
attire, the groom should wear a suit jacket,
vest, tie and trousers. The groom puts on a
nice shirt, tie and pants for the casual look
when the bride decides to wear a simple tea-
length dress. Jeans and cargo pants are
considered inappropriate for the groom to
wear to the ceremony.

Guests' Wedding Attire

According to Emily Post, the wedding
invitation and the time of the wedding will be
your best guide to its formality. For the
daytime courthouse wedding, women should
wear a dress or a nice skirt and blouse. Men
should wear a sports jacket and pants with
the tie being optional. Guests' wedding attire
that is not acceptable includes jeans, T-shirts
and clothing that is too provocative. Cargo
pants, athletic clothing and flip-flops are also
considered inappropriate to wear to a
courthouse wedding.
