Bridal suits we wanted to gatekeep – but we won’t

Let’s be honest, once you’ve got the wedding dress sorted, you turn to the next thing on your fashion to do list – other little white outfits.

Amongst other things, of course.

There are plenty of pre-wedding and post-wedding events where you might need something comfortable but relatively formal, or maybe you’re not looking for a wedding dress, you’re looking for an ensemble that feels more you.

And, in steps – the Bridal Suit.

Ridiculous poses and facial expressions aside, this pearl detailed suit caught our attention. The blazer in particular looks pretty special. With accentuated shoulder pads, layered and ruffled sleeves and and open back, this is definitely a statement piece.

Perfect Occasion: Registry Office.

Zara is a pretty reliable (and affordable option) high street retailer, and is always a good shout for staple tailoring pieces. Throughout the seasons there is more than likely a white or ivory full suit available to purchase. Particular details we love is the double breasted button detailing on the blazer, and the useable pockets coupled with the fact the suit is lined – something important to look out for when shopping light colours on the high street. We love these pieces, the simplicity of both the trousers and the jacket allow for your accessories to become the statement, such as oversized gold earrings, a statement headband or netted veil. Shop blazer here. Shop pants here.

Perfect Occasion: Rehearsal Dinner, Civil Ceremony or Day Two
Prices: Blazer – €89.95, Pants – €67.95 (Colour is Ecru)
