21 Wedding Suits for Women That Will Make You Think Twice About a Gown
Cinderella, mermaid and trumpet gowns are stunning and all, but more and more brides are opting for a less traditional way to walk down the aisle: Enter wedding suits. These cool, unconventional alternatives not only turn heads, but they’re also certainly more comfortable (especially on the dance floor). For the most part, wedding suits also cost a lot less without compromising the wow factor. So, we’ve compiled a list of 21 wedding suits for women that you can rock on your big day.
What to look for in a wedding suit
Before we jump into the good stuff, it’s important to take note of some things you should keep an eye out for when looking for a wedding suit. While the final ensemble will, of course, depend on what the wearer is on the market for, most bridal suits consist of a blazer, paired with pants, shorts or a skirt. They also come in an array of colors—from your standard white, to crème and other neutrals. And just because it’s a suit doesn’t automatically mean tailored fits. Wedding suits can be loose-fitting and flowy too.
1. Zimmerman Tuxedo Jacket and Bermuda Shorts
If Kristen Stewart can rock shorts to the Oscars, you can certainly pull up to your wedding in a set of tailored Bermuda shorts. Because to hell with tradition, are we right? Pair the tailored shorts with its corresponding wool and silk crop tuxedo jacket for a completely upscale wedding look.
2. Michael Kors Collection Wide Collar Blazer and Samantha Mid-Rise Seamed Pants
Simple yet striking, the white on this number will ensure that everyone knows whose special day it is. The double-breasted blazer features a wide notch collar, long sleeves with button cuffs as well as waist flap pockets. The crisp mid-rise suit pants have a traditional flat front design, side slit pockets and belt loops—just in case you want to add a pop of color with a cool belt.
3. Bardot Tuck Sleeve Linen Blazer and Pin Tuck Pant
Ditch the shoes, add a Painkiller, and we can see this breezy get-up at a rehearsal dinner on the beach of St. Croix. The pants are made with a lightweight linen fabric and feature side slant pockets and a zip fly with hook and bar closure. The blazer is also made with lightweight linen and features a front single button closure and lightly padded shoulders. Easy, breezy.
4. Giorgio Armani Main Palm Print Gauze Blazer and Gauze Shorts
It’s a tailored suit…but it’s shorts. It’s long-sleeved….but it’s gauzy and relaxed. It’s off-white…but it’s subtly rocking palm fronds. This blazer and shorts combo is covering all the bases—it’s high-low Florida at its finest. For the bride who can’t choose between the best of ALL worlds, we got you.
5. David's Bridal Collection Relaxed Fit Suit Jacket and Satin Waistband Fitted Suit Pants
The magic of this look lies in the smart detailing, like the classy satin waistband on the pants to ensure your look is still elegant even when you throw off the blazer as soon as the DJ breaks out the Cupid Shuffle.
6. Y.A.S Bridal Satin Blazer and Pants Set
Nothing like an oversized blazer and wide-leg, to remind us that comfy can be sexy as hell (especially in our post-pandemic outlooks). The sleek blazer features notched lapels, padded shoulders and side pockets, while the pants have folded pocket details, a relaxed fit and belt loops in case you want to jazz up the look.
7. Zara Double Breasted Long Blazer and Menswear Style Pants
Another option to keep you nice and comfy yet chic AF as you celebrate, is this twosome featuring a fitted jacket with a lapel collar and a double breasted closure with embossed buttons. The pants are your classic wide leg, with front pockets and back false welt pockets. But our favorite part? The modern take on 1980s-inspired shoulder pads.
8. Reformation Kinsale Set
Whether you want to get creative with your poses (squat pose FTW!), or tear it up on the dance floor, this wedding suit certainly won’t hold you back. The loose-fitting ensemble features a drapey blazer with center front buttons and front pockets. It’s paired with an unlined, wide-leg pant to offer breathability (just in case that dance floor gets too hot).
9. Flounce London Cropped Blazer and Mini Skirt Set
The category here is legs. For the ladies who want to show off their gams and a little bit of midriff, this set from Flounce London is the way to go. The cropped blazer is double-breasted and offers single-button closure and the mini-skirt is high-rise, with a side sip closure and front slit for an added touch of sexy.
10. Victoria Beckham Single-Breasted Patch Pocket Blazer and Relaxed Tailored Trousers
For people who don’t need the bells and whistles, this Victoria Beckham offering proves that less is more—especially when it’s tailored to a T. The button closures and large front patch pockets add a wee-bit of tonal contrast to the monochromatic look and the pants enhance the straight silhouette for a truly effortless look.
11. ASOS Design Premium Sequin Suit
Who ever said a power suit couldn’t have sex appeal? We love the idea of a bride rocking this slinky sequin number for the nuptials and then swapping the undershirt for a bralette for the after party. Ya know, so Gammy doesn’t faint.
12. Zara Inverted Lapel Long Blazer and Matching Pants
This ultra-chic, tailored number is for the minimalist dressers out there. The fitted blazer comes with inverted lapels and long sleeves with shoulder pads, front welt pockets and a front closure with a metal hook.

13. Mango Textured Cotton Vest and Straight Textured Pants
The gals who want to show off their guns will want to opt for this ensemble featuring a cotton and linen oversized vest. And while the cropped pants certainly give it an added edge, they are totally optional since the vest goes a little past your knees.
14. Iro Nejla Pleated Long-Sleeve Tapered Jumpsuit
OK, so this isn’t a suit in the same way the rest of the picks on this list are, but we couldn’t resist. Between the structured button-down bodice and tapered, full length legs, this jumpsuit is as viable a candidate as any other pairing on this list if you ask us.
