Some people grow up dreaming of their perfect wedding dress — okay, a lot of people, there are 12 dramatic seasons of Say Yes to the Dress — but for others, the idea of wearing pants on the big day is the way to go.
For brides who fall into the second category, we’ve rounded up 10 dress alternatives like jumpsuits and classic two-piece suits that are just as chic as any ball gown or fitted floor-length dress (if not more). Plus, looks aside, do you know how much easier is to dance in a flowing pair of pants? (A lot easier.) We promise you won’t look too casual — just pair with a veil, the right shoes, and some jewelry, and you’re wedding-day ready.
No matter if you’ve always known a dress wasn’t for you or are only just exploring the idea, the options below will get you started on your search.
