The bridal suit is our pick for a chic, modern way to express yourself on your special day.

We’ve asked bridal expert and Harper’s Bazaar Top Wedding Planner, Annie Lee, founder of Daughter of Design and start-up Plannie, for her top picks to suit up for your wedding in style.

"The bridal suit to me is also that iconic honeymoon getaway outfit. The driving off in a convertible after the wedding outfit. The getting off my puddle jumper in the Caribbean in my honeymoon suit outfit," says Annie. We couldn't agree more!

Figure Out Your Fabrics

When picking your fabrics, Annie suggests two things: “classic and clean—and, dress for the season. Try a powder white wool for winter and a crisp white linen for summer.” DALYA’s heavy-weight wool options are perfect for the coldest venues, but pick an all-year round weight wool for most months. Don’t be afraid to try our silk patterns and tonal jacquards for an extra punch of style.

Show Your Personal Style

Follow suit with your silhouette, says Annie, “when you are customizing The Bridal Blazer, my top pick is a shawl collar and going single-breasted, which will give you a plunging neckline. The collar is formal, but it’s still classic and sexy.”

Go fancy on the buttons and match to your other accessories. This will look even more custom, and gives that special edge that shows it’s not just a generic suit. Wearing pearls? Go for our Pearl Inlay buttons. Need something blue? Pick the Blue Marble buttons. You can also pick from the entire DALYA trim library with a Made to Measure Bespoke Bridal Suit.

DALYA Bridal suits come standard with a ‘Something Blue’ A on the back collar, but you can also add a special embroidery inside the jacket. "Put your future name, your wedding date or anything else to commemorate your special day," suggests Annie.

Are your besties just not dress ladies? Annie says suits are perfect to mix it up: "Imagine your bridesmaids having matching suits but all customized to their body shape and adding small personal details that work for each of them."

Remember: Don’t be afraid of a little color! Light blushes and lilacs are great alternatives to classic white, or pair your white suit with a blue vest for that new and something blue.

Be Comfortable and Stylish

“Think ahead to different scenarios that happen at weddings…hugging, sitting, warm temps, dancing, etc. It’s nice to look great, but important to feel great too.” A suit allows you to do just that: be stylish but also comfortable. No tripping on a long train, no maneuvering through crowded spaces. Even better, suits are easier for last minute alterations, so you’ll have a perfect fit on the day.

You can also ditch the purse and use our signature internal pockets to carry your phone, lipstick and anything else you need on the day.
