Achieving a perfect court wedding

By Vanessa Mwedzi.

Having a courthouse wedding doesn’t mean you are having a cheap wedding. You can make your courthouse wedding as classy and elegant as a white wedding and have the most memorable event of your life.

Most couples pour vast amounts of energy, time, and resources into planning for a big white wedding.

Little do they know, one can have the most memorable day and save a lot of money with a courthouse wedding?

Weddings are expensive and take so much emotions, whilst planning a court wedding is one way to save money and simplify the wedding planning process.

Here are ways to make your courthouse wedding memorable.

Hire dresses for the bride and her bridesmaids.

Wedding dresses aren’t cheap and most bridesmaids fight with the bride over unnecessary demands or a dress that you will wear for one day. 

It’s better to hire dresses, to maintain friendships, spend less, getting extra accessories. 

In that way, more money will be saved and used on other stuff such as your honeymoon.

 Do your research on courthouse weddings

To avoid surprises on the day, research on court weddings, booking dates, acquiring a marriage license, etc.

 Make sure you arrive early, you might end up planning everything else and not get married on the day.

Get a good photographer

A great photo-shoot is a must-have if you want to revere, reminisce and someday relive your special day. 

So before searching for a good photographer, you must do the necessary research on what type of photography style you prefer and find the photographer that meets your preferred style.

Lunch and photo-shoot with close family and friends.

Choose a classy and elegant venue for a small reception where you can eat and have a photoshoot. 

At least your close family and friends will not fill left out in your union.

 It is important that you and your partner make decisions but this is a way of involving your family and get their blessings as well. 

Those who come bearing gifts will be welcome as well and a honeymoon at the end of the day for the two of you is not a bad idea.


There is always life after a wedding, hence a wise couple will go through hours of pre-marital counseling, no matter what type of wedding you having. 

This way, you will know if you both are on the same page and you won’t have any regrets later on in life.

In conclusion, it is important to remember a wedding is for a day; a marriage is for a lifetime. 

With that being said, it is important to have a plan for your marriage.
