Registry Office Wedding

Whether you are having a registry office wedding in the city or eloping to Gretna Green you still want to look like a bride. Sometimes brides have a tricky time deciding what dress will take them from one type of venue to another. Moving venue’s can sometimes be a logistical nightmare in a full length wedding dress. You may feel self-conscious wearing a traditional wedding dress for a registry office wedding or if you wedding is an intimate family celebration. You still want to feel like a bride though and this is where a short vintage reproduction wedding dress looks great and works well. It’s a modern twist on a classic style that suits all brides and can be tailored to your needs.

There are other ways to also take you from a registry office wedding to an evening reception. Think of wearing a jacket or cape for the daytime and then remove when you get to your reception venue. This instantly makes you look different and also keeps you warm when changing venues. Using statement jewellery to move your dress from day to evening or to signify a change of venue is also a quick win. All that really matters though is that you feel comfortable in your wedding dress and enjoy your wedding day.
