Civil Wedding in Poland - what should a bride wear?

listentosylvia   Sep 12, 2008, 12:45pm /  #1
I'm getting married next month in Gdansk. What do you think should I wear? Do Polish girls just wear ordinary dresses or like a business suit? Suits are boring and even if it's just a civil wedding, it's still a wedding, isn't it? Yes, it is a civil wedding ceremony.

Girls should at least buy a proper white dress. Back in my country, it is more appropriate to wear something white - a simple white dress "maybe without" the bouquet but definitely not a full-length bridal gown.

Make sure you wear a jacket, as it will be getting chilly.

hmmm, a nice dress - it does not need to be white or ecru though (as the common stuff for a ceremony in the church) - for example, a friend of mine had a blue dress when she got married in registry office - all depends what makes you feel good...
