If your big day doesn't involve a big dress, that doesn't mean you don't have plenty of options. Going the nontraditional route for your vows [1] — be it at a courthouse or a chapel in Vegas — leaves plenty of room to play with the wedding [2] dress code.

We've plucked the best white dresses from the racks — think pretty lace, chic sheaths, and even a nontraditional jumpsuit or skirt suit thrown in. Whatever your alternative dress leanings, there's a mini, maxi, or sharp midi to suit your courthouse nuptials, backyard ceremony, and beyond.
