Not every bride has the luxury of time; but every bride deserves the luxury of fresh designer wedding looks. Brides getting married in 2022 and 2023, say goodbye to waiting nine months for your wedding dress.
Bridal pantsuits are replacing the white wedding dress, and they’re also tossing traditional wedding timelines out the door. Pantsuits are finding themselves in ready-to-wear collections, civil ceremony collections, and just about anywhere that designers are making waves for the spontaneous modern bride.
Whether it’s the wedding day look or rehearsal dinner (or anywhere in between) wearing a killer bridal pantsuit is a modern-day rite of passage. But we’re not here to diss the statement-making ballgown, as our love of alternative dresses for the cool bride is unwavering. Instead, we’re making an equal amount of style space for the glamorous bridal pantsuit.
We’re sharing sleek fits and pantsuits made to flow with your movement. Bridal suits can be embroidered, dotted, plunging, or draped – your dreams are reimagined in a pantsuit on our list.
The Law Bridal
Designer Megan Lawrence channels natural and sustainable fabrics in her contemporary and edgy styles. The 2021 collection was created from inspiration in wide-open spaces, breaths of fresh air, and the refreshing feeling of being surrounded by nature. It’s no surprise that this silhouette feels just as relaxed. The Ezra Suit styled with the Logan Belt gives this look its own aura. It’s a more relaxed silhouette for a traditional suit, so brides will feel at ease in its beauty and simplicity.
Daughters Of Simone
This season, the storytelling by Daughters Of Simone is a personal one, with deep ties to their family roots. They are serving us with two killer pantsuits and no, we can’t pick just one. Each look is equally bold and badass. The Margeaux Suit is an ivory floral jacquard that feels subtle in print, and strong in attitude. The Josephine Suit is a lamé brocade bridal suit that’s for the fearless bride, the wild child, and the sacred heart.
Cut and tailored in Italy, this suit is a mix of structure and airy attitudes colliding. Lightly padded shoulders offer structure and clean lines, as the jacket maintains a structured but bohemian flair. Carefree peekaboo cutouts are the star of the jacket, bursting with personality.
Let it be known that we’ve found the perfect 90’s-inspired relaxed suit with big Princess Diana energy. Magda Butrym’s signature oversized silk blazer is essentially timeless in design and feel. Wide pants in this relaxed fit trade 90’s frumpy for flowy and stylish. This look can be dressed up in diamond earrings (think, princess meets menswear!) or worn more casually to match your personal style.
We’ve never gazed upon a more delicate suit. Elegant-meets-whimsical 3D florals decorate this set in organic asymmetry. Named after Grace Kelly, it’s a modern pantsuit channeling her spirit, made of luxurious raw silk, crystals, and hand-dyed silk blooms. How could a pantsuit be so magical?
The Lein experience is a bespoke, one-on-one collaboration between you and the designer, Meredith from their NYC studio. And let us assure you, this relaxed satin pantsuit is a statement maker. It’s simultaneously low-key but stylized with a dotted pattern and loose effortless feel.
Brides looking for a rock and roll look, we’ve found it for you. Kaviar Gauche represents 70s glamour with their made in Germany bridal collections. The set is designed with a textured brocade floral fabric. It’s chic and a little bit casual. The flare pants offer a fun and wearable structure, tying them together for your aisle fashion statement.
A brand focused on traditional embroidery, Deerah creates pieces that are hand-sewn by Palestinian women refugees in Jordan. They’ve designed the ideal suit for your katb-ktab, your engagement party, and anything else that needs a bold bit of flair. This luxurious crepe suit is detailed with eye-catching color that includes 100 hours of stunning hand embroidery. Complete the look with the matching chiffon Wedding Shawl.
Oscar de la Renta
Why not use your wedding as an excuse to add two pieces from American fashion icon, Oscar de la Renta to your closet? This tailored ivory wool pantsuit is a timeless wardrobe addition, unlikely to age out in the decades to come. Expertly cut to span the ages, the blazer features the sweetest bow brooch. Making this classic white pantsuit absolutely ‘bridal’ worthy.
We present to you a pantsuit, but make it short. It’s structured but drapey; it’s bold but beautifully charming. The ebb and flow of design allows for a draped jacket with the feeling of a blouse. The shorts are tailored in the waist, complete with pleats and pockets, and flow to match the overall light-as-air quality of this look.
Michael Lo Sordo
A sexy way to wear a pantsuit is in glorious silk satin. Perfect for the modern bride a la Emily Ratajkowsk, it’s not trying too hard to make a sexy statement. Made from fluid silk-satin, this is the answer to the hot summer wedding suit. It’s ultra-relaxed, for the confident bride needing no fuss to enjoy themself.
Known for show-stopping details, designer Christian Siriano brought back this look from his spring 2019 collection. Worn by Padma Lakshmi to the Billboard Music Awards, it’s a sizzling custom white look fully embellished in crystals, a deep neckline, and secured by a statement button. You can bet we were stopped in our tracks – a vision of Bridal Musings dreams imagined. Padma, we love you!
Our Bridal Musings editorial board often poses this truth: that women wear the three-piece suit better than men. Let this Claudia Llagostera look be your evidence. Conventional fashion considers the vest a masculine garment. However, let’s consider the inherent construction. Suit vests are naturally waist-hugging, highlighting the female form through a masculine garment. Perfectly tailored in a modern shade of cream paired with a cheeky cropped jacket. This bridal pantsuit is every bit as feminine as it is masculine.
Galia Lahav’s Pret-A-Porter Line
The ready-to-wear collection by Galia Lahav is bold, chic, and exactly what we’ve been waiting for from the fashion house. The Anelise Jacket and Trousers are a crisp and feminine take on a traditional tuxedo. Tailored with contrast silk satin lapels, a slim tailored pants, and completed with tulle-covered crystal buttons, it’s pure perfection.
Goli June wants their part of your wedding experience to be fun and effortless. Their inclusive sizing (from 0-30) makes this look attainable for any bride. The Colling and Kilda suit is a silk mikado and wool blend that’s slim and elongating and detailed just enough to feel special. The blazer has a satin lapel on the jacket that matches the pant cuff detail for that extra bridal touch.
