Bridal suit inspiration

Now, if you’re looking for a little convincing, you’ve come to the right place. A bridal suit is the perfect option if you’re a little uncomfy in a wedding dress or looking for something different. We adore the versatility and how chic they look! It may also be something to consider if you’re planning a smaller ceremony and a bigger wedding party! Hey, the potential of having two outfits - who’s complaining? We definitely wouldn't...

The best wedding suits for women at Nadine Merabi

Nadine Merabi is known and loved for its modern and stylish bridal collection, fit for the most contemporary brides.

The best wedding suits for women at Mango

Mango wedding suits for women are all about clean lines and structured forms, perfect for the sleek, sophisticated and “clean girl” kinda brides-to-be. While Mango may not have been one of your first places to check when searching for your dream wedding day outfit, we’re here to show you the power of the high street! We all know that Mango is a go-to for wedding guest fashion, but the VICTORIA BECKHAM X MANGO collab shows us otherwise. A structured jacket and flared trousers combo is always a winning choice for brides playing around with the silhouette of various wedding suits for women. After all, no one wants a boxy wedding day look.

The best wedding suits for women at French Connection

French Connection is the home of elevated occasionwear, fit for brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests for a more obtainable price. The brand’s clothing promises high-end quality but for high-street prices! What’s not to love? Again, if we’re talking silhouette-wise (something a must to consider if you’re opting for a bridal suit), belted blazers or jackets are a big win - especially when paired with flattering flared trousers. For something even more different, why not consider a waistcoat alone? A great option for summer weddings in particular. While 3-piece suits are an option for brides-to-be, more are opting for nothing more than a waistcoat on their upper half, skipping the jacket entirely! When styled with some well-fitting trousers and on-trend pointed-toe heels - your guests will know they have a super stylish bride on their hands.

The best wedding suits for women at Ted Baker

Ted Baker is another brand where you can get designer quality on a high-street budget. While they have an expansive wedding range ideal for wedding guests, mothers of the bride and groom, and the bridal party, when you dig as deep as we have - you’ll find some absolute gems on bridalwear, too! Wedding suits for women are perfect for brides seeking a more low-key ceremony, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go all out on the design. Explore bridal suits with prints and patterns for an extra-special something! Or, if you’re getting married during the warmer months, you’ll need to consider overheating on your special day, as a suit doesn’t offer the same airiness and flow as a dress. Why not opt for a linen suit like this one from Ted Baker to help you combat all climates?
