Every bride should feel confident and strong on her big day, and while the bridal gown is a beautiful statement, we think a tailored alternative can pack just as much punch (if not more).
Be it a tuxedo, jumpsuit, three-piece, or perhaps an overlay-skirt, a tailored suit can appeal to both the conservative and the daring. For those of us not ready to shy away from the gown – a pantsuit can be a perfect fit for the rehearsal dinner or engagement party.
There is a certain allure that comes from wearing a pantsuit: an unparalleled sex-appeal mixed with beaming confidence. A pantsuit or tuxedo is a contemporary choice for the girl who wants to add a little extra edge to her wedding-style. Experimenting with silhouette (a wide leg or cropped cigarette pant; exposed chest or capped sleeve) can help make this statement right for you. The chic suit is also a suitable choice for those having a relaxed service, or destination wedding.
A jumpsuit can be a more feminine take on bridal-suiting. Designers love to experiment with different silhouettes and fabrications, and an all-in-one look can be the creative and unique option so many brides are looking for.
Lace, and silk keep the look elegant and sweet, while a wider-leg can provide the flow that often comes with a gown. The fit – be it relaxed, figure-hugging, or a combination of the two – ensures every bride can make the one-piece her own.
An overlay or detachable skirt is the perfect option for the girl who can’t quite accept ditching the gown all-together, but who still wants to have something different for her walk down the aisle. For the bride who wants it all, a skirt tastefully tacked atop a jumpsuit is the best of both worlds.
Chiffon overlays can give a suit a light, sheer sway or be used to add a train; while heavier silks can provide the fullness and flare of a ball-gown, fit for a princess with edge.
