We feel a certain kinship with modern brides—they break barriers and defy traditions in a way that’s fresh and exciting, especially when it comes to their fashion. She might opt for a gown that’s ultra-minimal, choose to rock a fashion-forward jumpsuit, or one of our favorite dress alternatives, go for a two-piece set by way of a stunning white suit. Very cool-girl á la Bianca Jagger!

Crisp, classic, and achingly chic, a white bridal suit has refined elegance written all over it. A suit is strong and sexy whether you have a penchant for smart tailoring, relaxed and fluid shapes, or modern and flourished design. Not to mention, suiting is having a big moment in fashion, giving way to myriad options from bridal favorites like Monique Lhuillier to new and emerging wedding designers like Danielle Frankel to forward-thinking fashion labels like Brandon Maxwell, The Row, Roksanda, Khaite, and Ellery—fashion-girl brides will feel especially smitten by all of these!

For the bride veering classic, you’ll find every style imaginable from neatly slim single-breasted blazers and cigarette pants to double-breasted jackets and flowing, wide-leg trousers to options with more nuance like cascading ruffles and bell-shaped flares. Another sartorially sounds pick? Racil’s double-breasted tuxedo-style suit contrasted with light-pink satin lapels, buttons, and pocket trims. Can you say chic?! To inject a bit more femininity into this menswear-inspired look, try for a skirt set like Paule Ka’s pretty peplum version or Le Suit’s mod versions with rounded shoulders á la Jackie Kennedy.

More that novel designer takes, contemporary labels likewise have beautiful options such as Theory and Nili Lotan—both delivering options that are entirely sleek. Affordable white wedding suits are on offer too, from the likes of Mango, Tahari, and Express. In this price range, we’re especially fond of a cape-style blazer and wide-leg pant combo from Misguided—need we remind you that capes are major in the world of bridal fashion right now—making this suit a perfect method for nailing a modern fairytale aesthetic without breaking the bank.

For the bride with her heart still set on a gown, a white suit is a prime choice for other bridal events like the rehearsal dinner, a bridal shower, or even as a second look on the big day. Plus, a two-piece set lends itself to repeat wear after you say ‘I do’, worn as a full look or split up into separates. Versatility is the name of the game here.
