Brides are choosing sleek, modern suits in a range of styles, from classic tailored looks to more bohemian styles. Suits can be a stylish and comfortable choice for brides who want to break away from traditional wedding attire.

Instead of having all the bridesmaids wear the same dress, couples are allowing them to choose their own dresses in a coordinating colour scheme. This allows each bridesmaid to feel more comfortable and confident in their own style.
