#WeddingTips – City Hall and Courthouse Wedding Dress

Fotor_153866286615264.jpg

Although many brides choose to do the religious wedding together with the courthouse wedding, we know that the majority still do the two celebrations separately (at least in Brazil, I don’t really know how it is here in the USA). So, two events and two dresses. Most of the times we are so eager to choose our dream wedding dress that we forget about the City Hall dress, but this dress will also participate in a unique moment of your life, it should have your love to choose as well. For the wedding on the City Hall, white and off white are still the favorite colors, but you can also choose a dress that is pastel and lighter colors.

As you know, I already wrote here on the blog, I got engaged and married in two and a half months, it was a rush to organize everything and I bought my courthouse dress so last minute, I bought my dress two weeks before getting married but I ended up finding one that I really loved! In my case, I got married in the morning and after we had lunch with my whole family, because it was less formal, I opted for a short dress, but not too short, although it was more informal, I also wanted to look like a bride.


Apesar de muitas noivas optarem por realizar o casamento religioso com efeito civil, sabemos que a grande maioria ainda faz as duas celebrações separadamente. Sendo assim, dois eventos e dois vestidos. Muitas vezes ficamos tão ansiosas em escolher o vestido de noiva dos sonhos que deixamos a escolha do vestido do casamento civil de lado, mas esse vestido também participará de um momento único da sua vida, então deve sim ser escolhido a dedo e com muito carinho. Para o casamento civil, o branco e o off white ainda são as cores mais procuradas, mas nada impede de você usar cores mais claras e em tons pastel.

Como vocês sabem, já contei aqui no blog, eu fiquei noiva e casei em dois meses e meio, foi uma correria para organizar tudo e meu vestido do civil acabou ficando de lado, comprei meu vestido duas semanas antes de casar mas acabei encontrando um que eu amei! No meu caso, casei de manhã no civil e depois fizemos um almoço para a família, pelo horário e por ser menos formal, optei por um vestido de comprimento curto, porém não muito curto, ao menos tempo que estava mais informal queria também estar com cara de noiva e não de uma festa de ano novo.

Another point is, there is nothing better than enhancing our own beauty and you more than anyone else know how, always keep in mind, as a priority, your style. Have you already chosen your dress? Get inspire with some dresses that I’ve selected!


Outro ponto é, não existe nada melhor do que realçar nossa própria beleza, e nós mais do que ninguém sabemos como, sempre tenha em mente o seu estilo como prioridade. E você, já escolheu o vestido que irá usar no seu casamento civil? Inspire-se com alguns vestidos que eu separei!

All about my wedding – Wedding Dress

i-hJ8QbmS-X2

Let’s say that choosing your wedding dress is the hardest part of the whole planning, of course the venue, food, drinks and everything is important, but you, as the bride, need to fell the most beautiful woman on earth on your big day.

When I started looking at dresses I already knew what I liked and what I didn’t, but sometimes you really like some clothes but it didn’t show your best features, so the best thing to do is to go to a bride dresses store and try all types, shapes even the ones you think you don’t like, you can be surprised!

The first store that I visited had a lot of stunning dresses, it was pricy but was good to see how I looked in different kinds of dresses. I really liked some dresses that I tried but all of them had something that I wanted to change, I didn’t think that I found the dress yet.

I think that I had in my mind something so clear of what I wanted, that none of the dresses would satisfy me completely. I went to some others stores to see if I would find what I was looking for but in the end, I decided to have my dream dress tailored by a fashion designer, Valdir Nicolau.

I just had two and a half months to get my dress, that really made me nervous, what if would not be ready on time, or not be how I really wanted, but after talking to Valdir and looking at the drawing of my dress, he made me fell more confident and that he would do his best to be exactly what I wanted.

Because I had so limit time to do my dress I had to try it almost every week to see how it was going, if it would need to be adjusted or if I wanted to have something changed. During all the process, I changed a couple of things and in the end, it  turned out to be even better than the dress I was dreaming of.
