  • I wore a dress and dh wore a dress shirt, slacks and tie. My stepsons for the most part got a little more dressed up and my son wore dress pants, shirt, vest and tie and my girls wore matching dresses. I didn't want jeans and t-shirt, it's the one and only time I will ever get married. Dh's family came and they wore jeans though, which was fine.

    Wear what ya want!

  • I was 7 months pregnant when I got married at the courthouse- I wore a long white summer dress that happened to have this bow that sat right over my belly. I lucked into finding it.

  • i wasnt pregnant when i got married at the courthouse.... but i wore jeans and a dressy black shirt. we went out afterwards together. and no one came to our wedding. my sister in law got married at a courthouse with immediate family present, and she wore a short white strapless dress. wear whatever you want. if your man is getting dressed up, get dressed up. if you both dont feel like, then just look nice.

  • I wasn't pregnant for mine, but I just wore a simple black dress that was very ME at the time. I saw other people there dressed up a little (dresses and slacks) and I saw a few wearing jeans. It's really just up to you what you're comfortable in--I don't think there's any tradition or protocol on what one wears at a courthouse wedding. :)

  • Wear what you feel comfortable in. I think that for such an important occasion that you'll want to dress up a bit. A dressy outfit, a jacket and tie for your fiance.

  • We had a private JP ceremony, although it was at our house and not at a courthouse. I wore a brown dress that looked nice.
