There are more than two reasons to love two-piece wedding dresses — wink, wink. Bridal separates have long been go-to’s for brides who want to create a custom silhouette. It’s a whole “choose your own bridal look” adventure! Bespoke on a budget, if you will. Below, we’ve curated 27 looks we love — feel free to mix and match your favorites!

Why choose a two-piece wedding dress?

Genuinely, a two-piece bridal look is an excellent way to create a look that’s all you without going completely custom-made. You can pick a top here, a skirt (or pants!) there, and create something that feels totally on-brand for your own unique style. And, believe it or not, it creates an opportunity to wear at least part of your wedding dress again for a more sustainable fashion choice. Kind of mind-blowing, right? A sparkly bridal bodice could be repurposed with jeans and heels for a night out — or for a fun surprise on your anniversary.

Can I wear bridal separates as a second look?

Bridal separates are a perfect option for your second look or reception quick-change. If you choose to wear a two-piece wedding dress, here’s your chance to mix it up with a different piece on top or bottom! Or maybe you add something fun like a midi bridal cape or fun shoe?
