ELOPEMENT AND CIVIL CEREMONY CHIC

Not everyone opts for that big ole celebration.  In fact some couples prefer the ease of making short and sweet work of tying the knot.  Even elopements have taken on a new chapter, concentrating more on the intimacy of the couple spending their nuptials away rather than 'running away'. Because small and civil  ceremonies usually take place weekdays when government offices are open chances are you'll be in a street length or above the ankle dress--probably white or some shade thereof (but it doesn't have to be). Going with a simpler ceremony means dressing yourself differently than the traditional bride.  Think bridal touches but abbreviated. For the sake of practicality go for the veil but a shorter one.  And by all means check out hats and headpieces--they are easier to manage.  A great example are the dresses below--formal enough to say 'bride' but not an overdose with the accessorizing  . . . .
