Whatever is otherwise legal to wear in your society/ culture/ where you live. At the end of the day it's your wedding, and it should be a day when you get to indulge yourself and run things pretty much how you like them. That includes what you wear.

Some people would think it strange if you wore a big white dress with veil and trail, but it's your day, your wedding; don't worry what they think and wear what you like (even if that turns out to be a short black mini-skirt, a bright orange sarong). What would your partner like you to wear?

My dad is a Judge in California and frequently does civil marriage services. He just loves weddings, and has attended all sorts. Lots on the beach (including his own).

Most likely the JP that's marrying you will be similar, be able to give you a lot of advice and guidance about the wedding, based on much experience of previous ceremonies. Ask them for advice.
