A bridal suit, also know as a wedding suit or even a two piece special occasion dress, could be your best choice for wedding attire if you are a mature bride.

Use this type of bridal outfit when you...

  • Need something that would be appropriate for an informal wedding
  • Need something to wear as a reception outfit
  • Want something for the honeymoon.

  • Want something practical so that you can wear it again.


The Wedding Suit

The wedding suit is a 2 or 3 piece wedding outfit. It usually consists of a jacket, sometimes a top and skirt in any length.

For a formal look... a floor length or tea length skirt is a good chooice. For an informal look... choose a "knee length" skirt.

The best fabrics for the wedding outfit would be soft light to medium weight fabrics.

These could be satins, crepe back satins, silks, cotton, linen, polyester silks, some light weight brocades, crepe and peach skin fabric. Any dressy soft fabric will work.

Wedding suits are also designed using lace fabric.

But if you are a mature bride, pay particular attention to the lace texture and pattern of the fabric when you consider wearing an "all lace outfit", because some patterns are more appropriate for young women.

Suits tend to be figure flattering if you have trouble spots you don't want to emphasize. Jackets and tops have hiding power. If you are thick through the middle or your trouble spot tends to be your hips and thighs, then finding a suit with a jacket that covers those areas is the key.

Two- Piece Special Occasion Dresses

Two piece dresses are a favorite for an informal wedding dress. The type of dress I am talking about is one that is used for special occasions or a mother of the bride or groom gowns.

The two piece wedding outfit consists of a dress with a jacket. Another variation would be a 2 piece dress consisting of a matching top and a matching skirt. The dress or skirt can be floor length, tea length or knee length.The fabrics can be anywhere from a soft light weight fabric to a crisp medium weight fabric.

Some lace fabrics work very well especially if they are soft and drape well. Lace works well when used to make accent pieces such as a jacket or even as embellishment or trim on the dress.

Your Wedding Outfit Must Be "Wrinkle Resistant"

Comfort is of the utmost importance! You want a wedding suit or dress that is "fuss free." This means the style . . . the fit . . . and the fabric . . . must look good on you when standing and sitting..

This is important because wrinkles take away from any outfit a person wears. Why? "Wrinkles in your outfit will show up in your wedding pictures also!" Do this wrinkle test...

  • If you try on a dress or wedding suit... sit down in it.
  • Then take a look in the mirror and see if it holds wrinkles. The fabric should have minimal wrinkling or after some time start to release them.
  • If you discover a dress fabric that seems to hold them... "PUT IT BACK" no matter how pretty the outfit is. I'm here to tell you it's "not worth the trouble."
Wedding Dress Tips:

"I remember a bride who was “very upset” to see how much the wrinkles in her wedding gown showed up in her wedding pictures. The worse part was SHE and her BRIDESMAIDS attire all were very wrinkled."
