If a traditional wedding gown just isn’t for you but you don't want to go too alternative, why not consider two-piece wedding dresses or bridal separates?

There was a time - around the '90s - when bridal separates meant stiff satin and ultra-formal silhouettes. Not any more. The new two-piece wedding dresses are both stylish and timeless, and can suit a range of aesthetics.

Whether you want a boho wedding dress, a sexy beach design or something elegant and modest, there's a two-piece wedding dress for you. You can buy sets - a top and skirt together, for example - or choose each element separately for a unique look.

It's no wonder two-piece wedding dresses are rapidly rising in popularity, with a 176% rise in people checking out the trend compared to last year!

To get you feeling inspired, we've rounded up our favourite two-piece wedding dresses and bridal separates from the best designers and High Street brands - happy shopping! 

We have included third party products to help you navigate and enjoy life’s biggest moments. Purchases made through links on this page may earn us a commission.
