Dresses aren’t for everyone, and when those individuals become brides, that still remains true. If you find yourself in this camp, consider a wedding suit. It’s an effortlessly cool alternative for ceremonies and celebrations; plus, it manages to achieve both modernity and elegance. Best of all, no two tailored looks are the same.

There are sharp tuxedos in ivory satins and white crepes that evoke the crisp sophistication of the Saint Laurent bridal look Bianca Jagger wore to her Saint Tropez ceremony in 1971. While there are also a handful of styles that offer a minimalist, clean look. For those looking for a bit of personality, there are also options that incorporate those more traditional details you’d find in a bridal gown, such as tuxedo buttons, lace trim, or ruffles. The back of Alexander McQueen’s white blazer, for example, is made up of lace and can be worn with a pair of coordinating trousers with lace trim.

For those who wish to not wear pants, opt for a skirt suit. We’ve seen the two-piece tailoring trend on spring 2022 runways from Dior, Miu Miu, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, and more. So it was only time until we saw similar silhouettes in the bridal space. Skirt suits in floral macrame or tweed are perfect for those looking for something with a softer feminine feel and of course, those who want to show some leg.

Brides looking for something less traditional yet still chic should say yes to the wedding suit.
