Here’s something you don’t hear every day in the wedding world: not every bride wants to wear a dress.
For many in the lesbian, queer and transgender communities, the perfect wedding outfit is a clean, classically-tailored suit. But as HuffPost blogger and LGBT wedding planner Bernadette Coveney-Smith knows, it’s virtually impossible to find a chic, wedding-appropriate suit made for the female body in stores. So six months ago, Coveney-Smith launched Fourteen Style, an online boutique that specializes in pants, jackets, vests and shirts designed for customers of varying gender identities.
HuffPost Weddings spoke with Coveney-Smith about how difficult it can be to find the perfect wedding suit in stores, and how Fourteen Style’s suits differ from average formalwear.
