Suits and Jumpsuits take on the Traditional Wedding Dress

In 2020 one of the hottest wedding trends will be brides breaking boundaries with a controversial choice for their wedding attire. But brides eschewing the traditional huge white puffy wedding dress isn’t a new thing. Jumpsuits and suits worn as bridal attire are ideal for brides wanting a simpler, fuss-free wedding than the traditional princess-line wedding gowns.

Jumpsuits and trouser suits are also perfect for brides who want to be as mobile as possible, whether because of the location of the wedding or because they want to be able to shake their tail feathers all night long.

Moves like Jagger

Everyone has seen Bianca Jagger’s elegant and stylish white blazer suit that she wore to her St Tropez wedding to Mick Jagger in 1971. The glamorous look was completed by Bianca’s lack of a shirt leaving her bare chest exposed between the sharp lapels of her white suit jacket.

Allegedly Bianca decided to ditch the shirt only because when she had tried to wear it on the morning of the wedding, it didn’t fit her properly anymore as she was too pregnant. Her look was completed by a wide brimmed hat with a light veil as a nod to tradition. Bianca Jagger’s wedding day vibes have returned in 2020, with catwalks featuring endless sophisticated jumpsuits and wedding suits for the modern bride.

Wear and wear again

If wearing a jumpsuit or trouser suit appeals to you for your Big Day but you are concerned whether it will suit the wedding you’ve already started planning, then worry not! Even if you are getting married at a traditional wedding venue like the graceful Holmewood Hall in Cambridgeshire, you can still rock a white trouser suit or jumpsuit.

One of the greatest advantages of a bridal jumpsuit or any other type of suit is that it can easily be worn again for any other smart occasions meaning that you are getting plenty of use out of your outfit.

There are all sorts of jumpsuits in a wide variety of styles, so no matter how formal your wedding is, there is a jumpsuit out there for your Big Day.

Options are endless

Whether you’re getting married in the summer or the winter, having a formal or informal wedding, or a city or a country wedding, the options for jumpsuits and suits are endless, particularly now that companies like Topshop and ASOS have started to sell fabulous wedding jumpsuits.

Jumpsuits can also be as smart or as casual as you want them to be and can be made out of a huge variety of different fabrics. You can also have sleeves of various lengths or you can finish off your wedding day look with a bolero, a shawl or even a fur, depending on the vibe of your wedding.

If you want to balance vintage with modern then you could consider wearing removable skirts with your jumpsuit or suit to create the illusion of a traditional gown for your grand entrance before finishing off the evening on the dance floor having whipped off the removable skirt!
