The most important criteria for choosing your wedding-day ensemble is that you feel comfortable in whatever look you choose, and that it suits your style. If a traditional wedding gown just isn’t for you, we love the new white bridal pant suits and outfits that several designers showcased this season – they still feel totally “bridal,” but it’s definitely a unique look. They’re tailored, flattering, and, yup, pretty darn sexy. They also make great “going away” outfits, or would look so chic at a city rehearsal dinner or engagement party. Check out our favorite bridal pant suits here, and be sure to check out our New York Bridal Market page for the newest wedding dresses, and trend reports. And let us know in the comments: Would you wear a bridal pant suit?
