This year’s wedding boom is projected to be big, according to a report from Wedding Market Research, as many as 2.4 million weddings will take place in 2022.  The Knot’s 2021 Real Weddings Study revealed the average U.S. wedding costs $28,000, and that’s not including the engagement ring.  As Covid restrictions begin to ease, many couples are looking for affordable, stress-free ways to tie the knot. Courthouse weddings are evolving and can be the perfect alternative to a traditional wedding.  As with any large scale ceremony, courthouse weddings can be thoughtful and curated and offer plenty of romance.  There are a number of ways couples can enhance their wedding experience. 

Here we list 3 Ways to Make Your Courthouse Wedding Special.


What To Wear to A Courthouse Wedding?  The beauty of a courthouse wedding is that you can wear whatever you want.  You can be as formal or as casual as you like.  Want to splurge on designer wedding attire, go for it!  Want to keep it simple and coordinate your favorite sweats and tennis, that’s ok too!  The only thing that matters is that your attire fits you and your partner’s personal style. 

Add Personal Touches

Who says you can’t make your courthouse wedding your own? Adding personal touches such as invitations, a registry, hiring a limo or car service, incorporating bouquets/boutonnieres or splurging on a dinner with family and friends afterwards can all make your day even more memorable.  For more inspiration visit 20 Personalized City Hall Wedding Ideas.

Hire a Photographer

Photos anyone?  There is nothing more special than having those memories to look back on in the future.  Hiring a photographer can help you capture the moments of your big day.  Many courthouses are housed in historical buildings that can be beautiful backdrops for wedding day photos.
