Do you remember Bianca Jagger’s wedding with The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in 1971? Rather than opting for a traditional gown, the style icon Bianca chose a crisp white blazer instead. She wore the jacket buttoned up with a cream-colored hat adorned with a veil. In an instant, brides everywhere considered one game-changing question: Should I wear a bridal suit to my wedding?
Of course, not every white suit must be worn on your wedding day. Other occasions leading up to (or after) the big finale call for the matching duo, such as an engagement party, bachelorette party, reception, or even on the way to the airport for your honeymoon.
Tailoring has taken over womenswear in the past few years, its return to the casual-wear realm expanding dress codes just about everywhere from the office to dinner parties. Then along came lockdown weddings with their reduced guest lists, and that pretty much cemented it.
If you love the nod to both nonchalance and power that a two-piece brings, consider wearing a suit to your wedding. When you take the uncomfortable corsetry and heavy skirts out of the equation, suddenly you'll feel a lot less nervous walking down the aisle – and you won't feel restricted during the dinner or dancing, either. The best advice we have? Buy a white suit for your wedding and you'll definitely wear it again. No one-hit-wonders here.
For the minimalist bride who loves clean lines and no-frill, our beautifully constructed SOPHIA blazer and GRETA trouser are perfect for you. SOPHIA is special enough to wear on your wedding day but is casual enough to throw over a pair of jeans.
The best part about a bridal suit is that it translates to post-wedding life seamlessly.
How to Choose a Wedding Suit?
Just like wedding dresses, bridal suits come in a wide range of styles and silhouettes to complement every bridal aesthetic–be it clean and classic or laidback and bohemian. When it comes to picking out the perfect bridal suit, style and fit are the most important factors to take into consideration. Do you want a silhouette that's structured, sleek, and architectural? Or maybe you're looking for something more casual or romantic? Once you've nailed down what you want–and what silhouette works best for your body type–you can turn your attention to other fun tailoring details like lapel styles, fabric types, and embellishments.
