The modern bride is anything but traditional, so why should her wedding gown be? The virginal white dress resembling a perfectly iced pastry is a relic of the past (and who were we kidding anyway?), and in its wake, today’s wedding aisles are beginning to look more like the runways of Fashion Week with bursting colors, patterns, textures and even a few pant suits. The thoroughly modern bride is not afraid of raising the bar (or the hem!) of her big day bridal gear, so here are some out-there options for the fearlessly fashionable bride!
Make sure you have some smelling salts on hand, because who knows how the mother of the bride will react when her daughter struts down the aisle in a pantsuit?! Every year, more and more designers like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Theia and Sarah Jassir are swapping customary wedding gowns for chic bridal pantsuits in their collections. The trend encourages brides to altar tradition and express themselves in a more fashion-forward way on their big day. With budget-friendly options like Zara’s Jacquard Pattern Blazer ($89.90) and Cropped Jacquard Pattern Trousers ($59.90), this season, the groom won’t be the only one rocking a suit!
