Sometimes the best outfit for your wedding day doesn’t involve sequins, fussy tulle petticoats or frothy meringue layers. In fact, there’s no rule that says that you have to wear a dress at all.
You should consider wearing a suit for your wedding if you like the power and nonchalance that a two-piece can bring.
Our lesbian wedding suits are easier to dance in and to go to the bathroom in. This way you won’t have to drag all of your bridesmaids in the toilet with you to hold your dress :)
Why choosing a lesbian wedding suit is the right choice for you?
Among women of all ages, suits are actually a very popular option.
They tend to be more comfortable, offer a bit more coverage than a dress would. You won’t have to worry so much about adjusting the hem of your skirt, appropriate undergarments or pulling at the neckline so your cleavage is good.
You can feel confident attending your wedding in a suit outfit if you have the correct fabric, the right accessories, and a few details. You will feel a lot less nervous when you walk down the aisle and you will definitely wear it again.

What are professionals saying about lesbian wedding suits?
Wedding suits can be sometimes tricky if you ask the founder of Bindle & Keep, Daniel Friedman, who is a bespoke tailor in Brooklyn, New York.
He has developed a method to fit female-assigned bodies for gender-neutral, androgynous suits.
Friedman, who starred in an HBO documentary that’s called Suited and talked about his largely LGBTQ clientele, says that it’s not only the tailoring but that there’s also psychology in bridal suits.
Everyone has different triggers regarding their bodies and the fitting of the clothes they wear, so you need to really sit down and investigate how people feel about their bodies.
Choosing a lesbian wedding suit can be a challenge, so how can you achieve a look that’s both elevating and affirming of your unique identity?
You should close your eyes and ask yourself this
Will it be a jumpsuit with a matching cape or a minimalistic blazer and pants?
Your fashion choices shouldn’t be dictated by cultural gender constructs, because what you want to wear is your choice and you shouldn’t look to appease other people.

Getting your outfit custom-made will allow you to decide about silhouette and fit. If it isn’t true to who you are, you shouldn’t go with an hourglass silhouette.
Instead of doing that, you should maybe look for a straighter fit on the waits and hips and a more androgynous silhouette.
When choosing between same-sex wedding suits perhaps the most important element is the attitude.
Along with the dresses and gowns, at the bridal shops, you will be able to find jumpsuits and bridal separates available for women.
However, it might be harder for tuxedos, suit separates, and suits. It is important to know your exact measurements so you can get the proper fit.
