Boho Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

We love two-piece wedding dresses because of their laidback and ethereal feel. So, if you’re looking for something slightly different for your boho wedding, it’s well worth considering bridal separates. Loose flowing skirts, delicate lace accents and tops with elegant sleeves are all big within the boho two-piece wedding dresses category. If you consider yourself somewhat of a free spirit and prefer something slightly astray from a traditional wedding dress that still looks bridal, bridal separates for your boho wedding are a must. We’re big fans of these styles from Lulus, Mint Velvet and Whistles - and we think you’ll love them, too! 

Crop Top Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

Just because you’re heading down the aisle, your outfit doesn’t have to be super conservative - especially if that’s not your vibe on an average day. It’s your special day - so why not wear something that makes you feel incredible? Of course, it’s essential to factor in your chosen venue - but we say, if you’re keen on a crop top - go for it! Whether your crop top is subtle - just sitting above your accompanying skirt - or something that reveals your midsection entirely - crop top two-piece wedding dresses are a hit amongst contemporary brides-to-be! Shop these looks from LILYSILK and Oh Polly for some cute cropped bridal looks.

Corset Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

Corset tops remain a popular fashion trend in 2024, and who said your style and preferences can’t translate to bridal fashion as well? If you’re one often to pick up a corset top for your dressier outfits, you’ll be obsessed with corset two-piece wedding dresses for your big day. Corset bridal separates offer a stylish and modern alternative to a traditional bridal gown, so if you consider yourself somewhat of a trendsetter amongst your friends and family - a corset two-piece might be just the thing you didn’t know you need (and so desperately want!). If you always take comfort into account, you don’t need a full-blown corset top to achieve the cinched look! Simply opting for a top that accentuates your waist will work all the same. For the inspo you need, browse our favourites from PLT, Mint Velvet and RIXO

Short Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

While we’re on the subject of alternative and non-traditional bridal wear, short wedding dresses are more popular than ever and continue to trend for 2024 weddings - so why not consider short two-piece wedding dresses, too? Whether you’re looking for a mini bridal separate for your main wedding dress or one of your pre or post-wedding events, like an engagement or hen party - it’s time to move on from the idea that classy wedding dresses can’t sit above the knee. Head to Karen Millen or Warehouse for these super stylish mini skirts and top combos - perfect for brides who want to inject personality into their wedding day attire. 

Beach Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

Beach wedding dresses are known and loved for their billowy, relaxed and flowy silhouettes, and two-pieces fit for coastal ceremonies are no different! If, like many, you feel a natural gravitation towards the calming nature of water and plan to say “I do” by the sea, a beach bridal co-ord might be the thing that wins you over. Whether you’re making the most of the beautiful beaches in the UK or jetting off to a tropical destination, you won’t want to wear anything too heavy to keep you feeling cool on the day. A skirt and loose, flowy skirt combo offers the breathability and movement necessary for a beach wedding, and we can’t get enough of this high-low skirt from Reiss, the more fitted maxi style from Malina or this elegant set from Recommended Supplier, Six Stories

Black Two-Piece Wedding Dresses

So, if crop tops and short two-piece wedding dresses go - whoever said deviating from the typical bridal white and off-white tones was a no-go? While we can’t get enough of some colour here at Rock My Wedding, black wedding dresses also have a special place in our hearts. Whether your wedding has a Gothic theme or you simply love the elegance and individuality attached to black wedding dresses - black bridal separates promise to go one step beyond! If you’re considering exploring the darker side of bridal fashion, head to Nadine Merabi and Reformation for these stylish two pieces.
