Most brides like to think they’re a little bit different. From the barn reception to the take home bottles of personalised gin, every bride and groom are convinced they’re reinventing the wedding day wheel. And while it might be hard to come up with legit original ideas for your special day, it is possible to do things, well, not the exact same as everyone else. Wearing a suit instead of a dress is one.
Changing into a second outfit might be 2019’s biggest wedding trend, but not many brides make that second outfit their official wedding outfit. Considering suiting, tailoring and boxy silhouettes are some of fashion’s biggest take-homes over the last few years, why not consider a suit for the moment you say ‘I do’, too?
Classic, classy and extremely flattering, a well-tailored suit can look just as elegant as a dress — and it’s got pockets. Take time trying on different cuts, colours and options, but to keep up the bridal look make sure you’re opting for luxurious fabrics and flattering silhouettes. Add on a pair of strappy sandals and an understated bridal beauty look and you’re sorted. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite wedding-ready suits — for the bride who isn’t afraid to do things a little differently.
