Brides continue to break tradition on all fashion fronts.  Because some women just can’t get into wearing a dress even on their wedding day, pantsuits are becoming a stylish alternative. Pant legs can vary from slim cigarette widths to wide culotte cuts.  If you're wearing a jacket with your suit, jacket styles are key to characterizing your look. Do you want the more open and romantic look of a 3/4 length coat or do you feel more comfortable in a man-tailored jacket?

Accessorizing your pantsuit with a bridal touch is one of the ways you can customize it for a wedding. Everyday buttons on a jacket for instance can be replaced with fabric covered or jeweled ones. Your jacket can also have couture techniques such as hand-bound buttonholes. Shorter veils like cages or poufs of netting go great with pantsuits. If you’re not the veil type, consider a hat or headpiece that compliments. Hats and suits go together, especially a hat with some kind of veiling over the eyes. It takes the place of a blusher and offers a certain sophistication to being veiled rather than that symbolic ‘being given away’ business.

The wide legged pants pictures are the right cut for a wedding. I would use the colors ranging from white to true french vanilla.
