One of the most daring looks any bride can choose for her big day, the wedding jumpsuit can help you to look truly fantastic as you walk down the aisle. The perfect choice for a modern wedding and for brides who want to stand out from the crowd, a jumpsuit is a great way to make a statement. If you’re considering wearing a jumpsuit on your wedding day, here are a few things to think about before you make the most important sartorial decision of your life.
Consider your venue
If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that wedding jumpsuits are far from traditional. As @bridalcouncil says:
“The look won’t work for every wedding. Anyone marrying in a traditional house of worship, for example, would probably look as out of place as a picnic-goer in sequins.”
So if you’re planning on getting hitched in a church, you may want to rethink your choice of bridalwear. If you’re still sure you want to go for the daring jumpsuit, you could opt to have two wedding outfits: one traditional dress for the ceremony, and a modern jumpsuit for the reception. That way you can ensure you look great both in church and on the dance floor.
If you’ve chosen a less traditional venue for your wedding, wearing a jumpsuit as you say your vows won’t look out of place at all. Decorate the aisle and the reception area to reflect your modern approach to marriage and your wedding day will look fantastic.
The bridal party
If you’re going to wear a jumpsuit on your big day, you need to ensure that the rest of the bridal party looks great too. You could have your bridesmaids wear coloured jumpsuits to complement your own outfit. This will help to emphasise your look and will give your bridal party a modern aesthetic. You could also have the groom and groomsmen wear contemporary-style suits so that you and your new spouse don’t look out of sync as you say your ‘I Dos’.
Again, if you’re not sure you want to wear the jumpsuit for the whole day, you could think about choosing two outfits for your wedding. Wear a safer option as you walk down the aisle and then change into your more daring alternative when it’s time to party the night away. Have your husband-to-be make a costume change halfway through proceedings as well to ensure your outfits work together perfectly.
