There's never been a better time for wedding suits for women. Tailored two-pieces have been all over catwalks, red carpets and the coolest Insta grids for the last couple of seasons - and it's a trend that translates beautifully to weddings. Of course, we'll always love wedding dresses, but wedding suits for women are about a particular mood: effortlessly cool and insouciant; glamour with an edge; sexiness shot through with extra sophistication.
We're clearly not talking about your typical office suit. These are powerfully elegant silhouettes, whether sleek and figure-skimming or with volume to spare. And while this may be a high-fashion look, the right wedding suit stands the test of time. After all, Bianca Jagger's 1971 tuxedo and skirt combo remains a fixture in round-ups of A-list wedding outfits. The best bit? You don't need a Jagger-sized budget. Where the catwalks lead, the high street follows, so you can easily get suiting that looks aspirational but is in fact affordable.
We've picked out the wedding suits for women that meet our strict cool-yet-timeless criteria, both designer and high street. Get ready to fall in love with bridal tailoring.

If you can wear short wedding dresses, you can wear a short wedding suit! The miniskirt adds a sophisticated sexiness to the relaxed cardigan - whether you choose heels or flats, this is a strong look.

Galvan London, a brand loved by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, prove that simplicity can be glamorous. The classic blazer paired with fitted trousers will lengthen legs thanks to the clever ankle slit. We suggest wearing a killer pair of heels so your guests can see them peeking through.
10. Oversized Sequin Blazer & Flowy Pants - £64.95 & £48.95, NA-KD
This is an extra look, but if you're not afraid of sparkle, NA-KD's sequin blazer and matching trousers could be just what you're looking for. The oversized fit is very on trend - we're thinking of it as stylish disco.
11. Oversized Blazer & Wide Leg Trousers - £50 & £40, Monki
We do love an oversized blazer, and Monki's single breasted option is particularly delightful. The trouser shape is spot on - with a slim fit, the jacket would be too much, but the relaxed shape makes the whole silhouette work from top to toe.
12. Obi Belted Cape Blazer & Flare Trousers - £80 & £70, Lavish Alice
What a glorious silhouette - this is power dressing, bridal-style. The caped one shoulder of this Lavish Alice jacket leads into a flattering nipped-in waist, a look that works wonderfully with the flared trousers.

21. Viola Jacket & Senna Trousers - £225 & £195, Ghost
Nothing speaks to the modern bride quite like this Ghost blazer and coordinating trouser. Understated and elegant, this suit is one of our favourites. Just like the model, wear yours with just a simple lacy bra underneath.

25. Satin Blazer & Wide Leg Trousers, £95 & £80 - ASOS
Another gorgeous affordable option from ASOS is this satin wedding suit. Not only will the fabric look and feel so luxurious, it also doesn't wrinkle as easily as other materials - so you won't have to worry about ironing out creases on the big day!
26. Boyfriend Sculpted Blazer & Trousers - £79 & £55, Warehouse
We loved the mustard suit Emily Rajatowski wore to her wedding ceremony. However, instead of a straight copy, we're going for a tribute - this orange ensemble from Warehouse. The look has the same insouciance, but the colour gives it extra zing, and the oversized, boyfriend fit feels super-fresh.
27. Oversized Boxy Crop Blazer & Relaxed Trousers - £18 & £18, Boohoo
This suit from Boohoo proves you don't have to spend big to get a beautiful outfit for your wedding day. The short, boxy blazer perfectly balances out the wide leg palazzo pants, keeping your body in proportion.
