If a traditional wedding dress just isn’t for you and you’ve exhausted all options looking for an alternative wedding dress to fit the bill, why not consider a two-piece wedding dress or bridal separates? Forget the 90s idea of a bridal two-piece, all stiff corset and satin A-line skirt – these are stylish, timeless and can reveal a glimpse of skin or look like a seamless gown.
Bridal separates these days can mean trousers and blouses, jackets and skirts, toppers and overskirts or a combination, so you've got total flexibility when it comes to pulling together a look that's perfect for you.
To get you feeling inspired, we've rounded up some of our favourite two-piece wedding dresses and bridal separates from some of our fave designers and retailers - happy shopping!

We love the classic white cami paired with the beautifully soft and flowing skirt and metallic waistband from Charlie Brear. Wear it at your destination wedding or for a chilled-out festival style wedding in the UK for easy boho bridal styling.
2. Galvan Moonlight Sequinned Camisole and Crepe Bridal Pants - My Theresa
It's totally ok to give a dress a miss and choose an alternative, and with so many trouser suits and wedding jumpsuits out there it's never been easier. We love this Galvan camisole and trousers, pair it with some statement earrings and a clutch and you're good to go.
3. Tadashi Shoji Campbell Top and Skirt - BHLDN
How perfect would this two-piece wedding dress be for a destination wedding? We're loving the scalloped edge of this top and skirt set from BHLDN. The textured lace gives a nod to tradition while the silhouette keeps the set thoroughly modern.

4. Unicorn Jacket, Raya Skirt and Roxi Cami - Catherine Deane
Would it be wrong if we bought the Unicorn Jacket for a night out?! We love this bridal two-piece look, especially when paired with the sequinned Roxi Cami and Raya Skirt. We can just imagine brides shaking it on the dance floor in this tasseled number!
5. Cropped Top with Bonded Mid-Length Skirt - Jacqui James
Wedding dresses and even bridal separates don't need to be long and flowing, in fact we're loving mid-length skirts and tops like this set from Jacqui James at the moment. We'd team this with a '60s style birdcage veil and pearl earrings for a seriously stylish registry office wedding.
6. Alma Ivory Skirt and Top Set - Constellation Âme
Sexy and laidback, we're completely taken with this silky set from Constellation Âme. The loose-fitting cami and softly flowing skirt with side split are made from heavy-weight ivory silk and lined with crepe for a high quality feel that's totally unfussy.
7. Henson Trousers, Parry Blouse and Oliver Corset - Halfpenny London
Soft and feminine with an androgynous edge, we love the contrast of these tightly pleated trousers and the organza pussy bow blouse from Halfpenny London. High fashion with a sexy twist, you can team this with a pair of court shoes and look catwalk - or aisle! - ready in an instant.
8. Luna Top and Lyra Skirt - Charlie Brear
This sheer skirt and top combo from Charlie Brear is the ultimate summer bridal separates pick. The three-quarter-length sleeves and cropped length of the top make it ideal for hot summer days, while the flowing skirt would look gorgeous floating down a sandy aisle.
9. Ariane Lace Wedding Co-ord - Whistles
We love the combination of the stunning lace with delicate eyelash trim and the on-trend high-low skirt of the Ariane Lace Wedding Co-ord. The high-neck and open back of the crop top give the look just the right amount of sexiness and reminds us exactly why Whistles is our go-to for high street bridalwear.
10. Zaha B Two-Piece Wedding Dress - Cynthia Grafton-Holt Couture
We adore the flared sleeves on this stunning two-piece wedding dress from Cynthia Grafton-Holt Couture. Combining traditional bridal vibes with boho chic, the Zaha B set is handmade to order and can be crafted with lace of your choice, making it the perfect combination for brides wanting to personalise their gown.
11. Dita Skirt and Daffodil Top - Halfpenny London
The soft Champagne tulle of the Dita skirt and the ivory silk Daffodil top is giving us serious ballerina vibes and we predict girlie brides will adore this Halfpenny London pairing. Team with a pretty updo and some drop earrings for a fairy tale bridal look.
12. Norah Topper and Marissa Skirt - BHLDN
How pretty is the Marissa Skirt and Norah Topper combination from BHLDN? We love the idea of layering the topper over a bodice (like Colette) and removing it for the evening reception - you'll have princess vibes by day and sultry style by night!
12. Erdem Lydell Skirt and Blouse - Matches Fashion
Dainty and demure, this Erdem pairing is perfect for brides in search of a conservative bridal set. The layers of frothy organza and silk satin in the skirt along with the floaty cap sleeves of the blouse make this a dreamy duo, and we adore the subtle floral embroidery.
13. High Neck Top and Layered Skirt - Kate Edmonson Bridal Couture
This layered tulle skirt and high-neck, long sleeve top pairing from Kate Edmondson Bridal is perfect for a demure and conservative wedding ceremony look. We'd totally surprise guests with a second look and pair the skirt with a cami or strapless bodice for a more daring reception vibe.
14. Shayla Topper and Jenny by Jenny Yoo Clarke Skirt - BHLDN
When it comes to bridal separates, contrasts can work really well. We love the boxy fit and heavy embellishment of the top against the soft flowing tulle of the skirt in this stunning look from BHLDN. We'd so team this with a bold and beautiful bridal headband!
15. Wheatley Camisole and Wheatley Skirt - Halfpenny London
We're head over heels for this girlie and romantic look from Halfpenny London. The square-neck of the cami is giving us major 90s vibes, while the softly shimmering blush layered skirt is fulfilling all of our princess bride wishes. We're going to need dazzling bridal shoes to go with this one!
