There’s a type of bride who can’t be bothered with diaphanous layers of organza, cascading tiers of tulle, swingy fringe, or delicate lace appliqués. She’s fuss-free and on her wedding day, she wants something simple, but elegant. Something she can move in and feel entirely comfortable. Also, she wants something utterly stylish. Enter: the wedding jumpsuit.
A modern one-and-done piece, jumpsuits make a fresh statement for brides on their wedding day. Or, as an option for their bridal wardrobe leading up to the big day (like the engagement part, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner). More and more bridal designers are privy to this type of bride, resulting in a range of all-in-ones from pared-back and minimal to ornate and dramatic (think versions fixed with a train, so-now capes, mega-watt feather detailing or silhouettes that are super sculptural in shape).
If you fall in the traditional camp, lace-adorned jumpsuits are for you whether it’s an illusion neckline, sheer overlay, or dimensional embellishment. All-over lace is beautiful, too—if you’re the conservative type, look for a style with substantial lining to avoid a too-revealing effect.
Myriad jumpsuits are on offer for the minimal bride from sleek crêpe de chine to sumptuous satin. Explore various necklines and shapes if you’re of the mind to pare it back to make sure the result is striking—everything from strapless to one-shoulder to crisscross straps are flattering while immaculate details like pleats and pristine draping denote stellar craftsmanship.
Bohemian brides can look to jumpsuits for a contemporary spin on wanderlust. Textured silk linen organza, dreamy eyelet lace, wistful embroidery, and ruffled macramé are all charming and romantic details. They’re perfect in warm weather, too if you’re planning for outdoor nuptials in the summer months.
White jumpsuits contrasted with black read forward and fresh—whether trimmed with feathers or with a simple waist sash, the effect is at once dynamic and simple. Plus, you can easily wear them again for formal events down the road.
