If you're suiting up for your wedding, the experience of putting together your fit should be every bit as special as bridal dress shopping tends to be. Fortunately, the world of lesbian suits is as exciting and diverse as it's ever been. Not only are suits for masc and femme bodies alike available in increasingly wide arrays of styles and colors, but the experience of getting fitted for a suit itself has become more inclusive thanks to long-standing retailers expanding their reach and upstart designers aiming to cater specifically to femme and queer bodies.

Especially in the instance of getting a custom suit made–though the same can be said for getting alterations on a ready-to-wear suit–you should never feel that you have to bend what you want in your wedding suit to rigid gender norms, measurements, or fashions. There are designers across the country who have made it their priority to cater to diverse clientele across the LGBTQIA+ wedding spectrum. They'll make sure that from the first fitting to the moment you slide on your jacket on your special day you feel that your suiting needs are cared for and understood. And perhaps more importantly, whether you're wearing a suit or a tux they'll have you looking your absolute best when it's time to say, "I do."

Disclaimer: Here at The Knot, we believe that clothing is for everyone, despite the gendered language that can be often used to describe it. Though this article specifies "lesbian" in the title, the content and clothing options are intended for anyone who is searching for suiting outside of the traditional men's suit offerings, whether or not you identify with the term "lesbian." Language can sometimes be limiting, but we don't think your options for wedding fashion should be.

Lesbian Suits 101: What to Know Before You Buy

Maybe you're having a custom suit made for the first time and maybe you just want to make sure your ready-to-wear suit is, you know, actually ready to wear in time for your wedding. Whatever your situation may be, here's everything you need to know about buying a suit for your wedding.

How long does a custom suit take to finish?

This is going to depend entirely on the designer who's making your suit. Brands like Indochino can finish a suit in a few weeks while smaller retailers who take a more bespoke approach can take as long as a couple of months. It's best to consult your designer of choice's website to get a hard timeline in place, but it's prudent to remember that custom suits take time. There is no same-day delivery for clothing like this.

Can I wear women's dress shoes with my suit?

Totally! Heels, pumps, or wedding shoes paired with a suit or tux is a great look. If you feel like going the more traditionally masculine route it's also fine to pair your suit with classic men's dress shoes or loafers.

How long do alterations take?

Overnight alterations on ready-to-wear suits aren't necessarily out of the question but generally it's best to play decisions like this on the safe side. Most tailors and alterations specialists can get minor to medium adjustments on a suit turned around in about a week.

Does my suit need to match my spouse's dress or suit?

That's up to you! There's no tradition dictating that it needs to but it can be a nice sartorial touch and looks great in wedding photos.
