Wedding Suits & Tuxedos For LGBTQ+ Women

We know we harp on about how important it is to ‘be you’ on your wedding day, but for some women who want to rock a wedding suit or a tuxedo, options can be a little sparse, and for others, it can be a downright awkward experience – and that’s not okay with us. 

In the past, wedding suits were designed for men, which meant that finding an incredible suit that fit a woman’s, or nonbinary person’s, body (and often their curves) just wasn’t an option – and if it were, it had to be something custom-made. Forget getting an off-the-rack shirt, jacket, or pants. 

But, that’s not the case anymore. More and more businesses that cater specifically to the LGBTQ+ community are popping up. Fitting suits to androgynous styles, respecting the process of having a custom-fitted garment made for people with trans bodies and experiences, and helping women find their perfect wedding tux are things they often specialize in. 

Whether you’re looking for the perfect 3 piece wedding suit, you’re dreaming of a skirt and suit combo, or something entirely different, here are our top picks for businesses that will help all LGBTQ+ people (inclusively) find wedding attire that truly suits their style.
