Two Part Wedding Dresses

Gorgeous Wedding Separates

Slowly gaining momentum is the idea of a two piece wedding gown or wedding separates for the bride. Although they’ve been popular with a few brides for some time it has only been since 2014 that they’ve really gotten coverage at the Bridal Fashion Week.

I’ve selected a couple of wedding separates for you to enjoy, but there are lots of other options available from Boho casual 2 piece wedding gowns to actual wedding suits.

Christian Siriano Two Piece Wedding Gown

Wedding Separates for the Stylish Bride

Christian Siriano’s take on the two piece wedding dress has a ‘heavier’ feel to the Herve Leger one with the use of organza instead of the open knit used on the above top, it will definitely appeal to a different bride. These two pieces are again sold separately, but why you wouldn’t want both of them is beyond me!

Alice + Olivia Two Piece Formal Gown

A Perfect Two Piece Wedding Dress

I love the look of this Alice + Olivia outfit as the detailing on both the top and skirt add a ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the look which is sure to enchant a bride to be. Personally I think it encompasses some of the vintage glamour of the 1920s with a fresh and vibrant modern feel, the result is what you see –
