I know, it’s Wednesday and you were expecting to see and read the follow up of my spring summer 2018 fashion trend report (it was about the shoes last time) – the IT bags of the season. But we have wedding situation here. So first things first! It happens that I received an urgent call from one of my friends who is getting married next Wednesday at the city hall. Just like that with no fuss, in between the lunch break. And she has no idea what to wear.
Luckily, I was thinking ahead and actually already planned to publish #5 wedding outfits you can wear for a wedding at city hall. Ps. You will find the EDIT with #5 wedding dresses and a suit at the end of this blog post. But first, about my dream wedding, oh I know you want to read this. And about this little white dress that I’m wearing.
MY DREAMY WEDNESDAY WEDDING
Besides, believe it or not, my dream wedding is small, I mean my dream civil wedding, moreover a secret Wednesday wedding at the city hall in Paris. I have this perfect scenery already in my head.
He saying me “Let’s get married” as we are standing on Point du Alexandre at midnight under the stars. And the next morning we rush to Maison Dior where we get ready for our wedding. I get my dreamy tulle dress (you know that dress Dior dress) and get my makeup done by Peter Philips. While he gets his black Dior tuxedo. Then a driver picks me up, and I rush to the city hall where he is already waiting for me. We say “Oui” and … Well, my dream wedding plan stops here. Surely, I have more than enough time to plan all the details. Whereas my friend, well she is in a rush.
WHAT TO WEAR TO CITY HALL WEDDING
As her, Wednesday Wedding day is almost here, she is running out of time to get the perfect wedding dress. A wedding dress that she could not only wear for her city hall wedding but for work as well. Luckily she is a boss, so her Wednesday wedding white dress is something she will be able to wear after the wedding as well. Remember I wrote about white being reserved only for the boss lady over here?
WHO SAYS YOU CAN’T WEAR YOUR DREAM WEDDING DRESS FOR WEDNESDAY WEDDING AT CITY HALL?
Anyway, even though you are getting married at the city hall, on Wednesday, between the lunch break, there is no reason why you shouldn’t get your dream wedding dress. Surly, long tulle wedding gown is out of the question, but this doesn’t mean you can’t wear tulle for your Wednesday Wedding at the city hall. Or at least tulle-ish, oh dear this is not even a word, but I’m sure you know what I mean. Because you can well see what dress I have in mind.
DREAMY, ROMANTIC, SOPHISTICATED YET WORK READY
It’s this dress that I’m wearing in the photos here. In front of the City Hall in Ljubljana and on the Cobblers’ bridge. By the way, I’m standing on this bridge for a reason. There is this song, called Over the Cobblers’ Bridge (Čez Šuštarski most), saying a groom takes his bride over this bridge to the city hall where they wed.
Anyway, back to this little white dress that I’m wearing while pretending I just ran away from my wedding at the city hall. Well, that would be a thing! Ps. Don’t tell my future fiancee, but the runaway bride is one of my dream wedding scenarios as well.
Again, back to the dress. It’s actually a pleated dress, but these light pleats look like a delicate tulle from a distance. A perfect substitute for a tulle when you have to go back to your work after your wedding, don’t you think? So where to get the dress I’m wearing?

WEDNESDAY WEDDING DRESS OR WORK DRESS?
Well, I guess I should have written my Wednesday work dress above. Still, we are talking about weddings and this little white dress would be a perfect wedding dress for a city hall wedding. Especially if you have to go back to work after you say I do!
Wedding dress or simply work dress, this little white dress comes from Storets, and you can shop it here. You can get this short pleated dress for only $132. And as said you can wear it for wedding or work. That is if you are a boss lady. You know, white is for the boss. Ps. In case you missed that blog post on why you shouldn’t wear white to work unless you are the boss, go here. Just click to open that blog post in a new tab and read it later. You still have to see the EDIT with #5 wedding outfits for city hall wedding.
Chances you will need to wear a blazer for your Wednesday wedding this May are high even though you don’t have to go back to work after you sign your wedding papers. By the way, before you start panicking when you see rain in the forecast on your wedding day, let me tell you that rain on your wedding day means wealth and prosperity in your marriage. Besides you need to wear a blazer for your Wednesday wedding at city hall anyway.
Yes, a white blazer above your wedding dress is a must if you head back to work after the wedding. Especially if you want to keep your little stop at the city hall as a secret. Still, be sure to fix your lipstick and dab your mouth before you go back to the office. Smashed lipstick and a cake on your nose and lips will give you away before the dress does.
Back to the blazer. I’m wearing a tailored white blazer with one golden button from Juicy Couture. Unfortunately not on sale anymore. But I found a similar single breasted white blazer on a budget (here) and luxury, Balmain of course (here).
Ps. You can also wear this dress more casually if you swap the white blazer for a denim jacket. Like I did here.
WORK OR WEDDING SHOES
Funny thing, almost every bride thinks the wedding dress is the most important thing about her wedding outfit. Surely you see the dress first, but the most important thing stays hidden under the wedding gown. Well not so hidden if you are wearing a short wedding dress. Whatsoever, hidden or not, the wedding shoes are the most important part of your wedding outfit.
And no, not because your dream day would be less dreamy if your feet start hurting you before the wedding kiss. But because you will have to rush back to work afterwards. You don’t want to be late for work, do you?
So what are the best, and also the most fashionable wedding/work shoes this season? The plexi pumps of course. You can get these stunning Gianvito Rossi plexi pumps here. Ps. I added a pair in white to the gallery above. Although I think a pair in blush is a better option. Especially if you ate your wedding cake before Wednesday. You know, to follow the tradition.
Obviously, you can’t wear your ordinary business tote for a wedding even though you are getting wed during the lunch break at the city hall. A small white shoulder bag is a far better choice. Besides, you can still put in your small shoulder bag all you need for work and wedding. Ps. Go here for a quick reminder of what to always keep in your purse.
You can shop my favourite white wedding and work appropriate shoulder bags from the widget below.
What blue is there on me? Well, you can’t see. But I’m wearing a blue lingerie. You can find it in the gallery below. I’m wearing Calvin Klein this time. Apart from the lingerie, I’m wearing I also few other cotton and lace pieces.
FINALLY, SOMETHING BORROWED
Ha, nothing borrowed on me. But I added something borrowed, well second-handed actually in the gallery for you. Surely, asking your friends or women in your family to borrow you something for your wedding is out of an option if you want your wedding to stay a secret.
#5 CITY HALL WEDDING OUTFITS
And here it is, the EDIT with my favourite 5, pardon 6 outfits you can wear for your Wednesday wedding at city hall. I made sure not all of the outfits are office appropriate, just in case your Wednesday wedding is not a secret, and you won’t be going back to work after you get wed.
You can shop all the outfits straight by clicking on the pink boxes you see in the EDIT, or find the items in the galleries above and under. Oh, and be sure to read more about the second outfit over here.
