More and more brides are swapping layered tulle ball gowns and creeping sheaths for elegant wedding pants and suits. For her most recent micro-wedding in Los Angeles, stylist Taryn Shumway joined the ranks of brides who wore pants. At Sunset Tower, she tied the knot while wearing lace-trimmed pants and a silky open-back blouse by Danielle Frankel, a bridal designer known for creating modern pieces that will be worn more than once long after the big day can. “The halter top had a flattering shape on my shoulders, and the lace detail on the pants was exquisite,” explained Shumway. “Besides, it was pants! I felt so comfortable all night. “

Choosing a pair of pants that feel worthy for such a special occasion takes a little bit of strategy. After all, a wedding look should be extraordinary. Look for options in these raised fabrics that give wedding dresses their magic – a duchess satin or a luxurious taffeta. Second, don’t forget the ingredients. Christopher Kane’s crystal-embellished trousers and blazers as well as the feather-adorned sets from 16Arlington are just as glamorous as any dress. And play with proportions – have fun combining trousers with a micro mini dress or a camisole in maxi length.

For a socially distant ceremony or a digital zoom wedding, here are 10 stylish wedding pants and suits for the big day.
