If you’re one of the brides who don’t want to wear a gown on the big day, we’ve got news for you! Bridal separates are making a big statement emerging down the runways with top and skirt combinations. They’re incredibly versatile allowing each bride to create something entirely unique.
Here’s a few tips before you set out on finding your two-piece ensemble!
Stick to your budget
Finding two separate pieces is generally more affordable if you’re on a tight budget. It can be easier for you as a bride to mix up the look with different tops and skirts which you can’t easily do on a ready-made gown. There are plenty of showstopper styles at affordable prices. Get your money’s worth and pick the right bridal separates that are elegant and can elevate any outfit when paired with other items in your wardrobe.
As you may already know, most women are different shapes and sizes on the top and bottom so a two-piece look will give brides the flexibility to find the right size to fit their bust, waist and hips. This also minimises the necessity of having to undergo major alterations to your chosen outfit. Find the right silhouette for your body shape and opt for something that reflects your personal style. Whether it’s a sleek number, a Bohemian dreaminess or high-glamour vibe, these breathtaking styles can take you from the ceremony through to the evening reception.
Mix and Match
Bridal separates allow you to have multiple looks throughout your wedding day. With endless combinations of crop tops, bodysuits, long sleeves and slinky camis paired with ethereal skirts. Perhaps you have an existing bustier or corset in your wardrobe which simply needs a bottom half to complete your dream look. Why not make your grand entrance with a flouncy skirt and change into a pair of statement pants for the afterparty? Be sure to tailor your bridal look to your wedding venue and climate.
Re-wear after the wedding
Tops are generally easy to match with another skirt or trouser but be mindful of the bridal skirt you choose. A huge overskirt wouldn’t suit all occasions whereas a slinky number or a soft A-line can be tailored afterwards by shortening the hem or removing the train. Your lace crop top, silk satin cami and even sleek skirt with thigh-high slit can be a match made in heaven with ready-to-wear for a night out in the city. Going off-duty chic or sexy and sophisticated is the best way to wear your bridal look again and again.
So, if you’ve got a little longer to plan your look before walking down the aisle, why not get creative with your wedding outfit and find an interchangeable two-piece?
