It’s your second time around, and you may be looking to celebrate your nuptials with something a little more low key — but special nonetheless — than a giant soiree. Thus, we give you city hall weddings. And no, they aren’t what you’re thinking (a stuffy room sans charm or pomp and circumstance).

City hall weddings are making a comeback, even among those marrying for the first time. There is something utterly understated, intimate and chic about a simple ceremony with your love shining at the center of it all. Did we mention how much simpler things would be with no details to lose in the shuffle?

It’s important to know that y
ou don’t have to sacrifice style when you choose this type of union. Rather, we’re seeing city hall couples dress to impress to commit to one another — from Jackie O-esque sheaths to full-on ball gowns, tailored suits, bow ties and more. Nothing is taboo when it comes to fashion, city hall or not.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite looks for city hall ceremonies that are sure to have you saying “I do” in style. We suggest meeting your friends and family after the ceremony for a dressy brunch, and you’ve got an uber-cool celebration that people will remember.
