Looks for the court wedding
For many women, a courtly wedding doesn’t necessarily require a lot of disguise like the white wedding ceremony. However, this is where many brides go wrong, as the line between holding things and giving up effort becomes blurred.
Court weddings usually require a toned down, more civil look. Therefore, couples usually opted for suits earlier than their official wedding look.
Well not anymore.
A lot has changed in the meantime – at least for women. While the fashionable look of the men’s wedding wedding is quite restrictive, there is a lot that women can and have done to get married in style.
