It is no news that a typical northern wedding is colourful and most times, an avenue to display their rich cultural heritage, something which is always beautiful to see.

Court wedding fashion
For many women, a court wedding doesn't necessarily require much dressing up like that of the white wedding ceremony. However, this is where many brides get it wrong as the line between keeping things toned down and not bothering to put an effort gets blurred out.
Courthouse weddings usually call for a tone-down, more civil look. Hence, back in the day, couples usually opted for suits as their official wedding look.
Well, not anymore.
Things have since changed - for the women at least. While the men's court wedding fashion look is pretty restrictive, there is a lot of women can do, and have done to wed in style.
