We love a gorgeous wedding dress as much as anyone, but there’s something about a bridal skirt & top combo that absolutely makes us smile. Maybe it’s the slightly edgy look that you can achieve with separates, maybe as I’m short, I appreciate that with separates, you can balance your look to your proportions, whatever the reason we’ll never tire of bridal separates and it looks like so many designers think the same way.
Skirt and top combos mean you can mix and match styles and really make your wedding day look your own. Whether it’s a traditional fitted top and full skirt combination you’re after or something cute and quirky, or totally bohemian, the choice is yours to create.
Grace Loves Lace Wedding Separates
As you know we are such fans of Australian bridalware designers Grace Loves Lace and they have definitely nailed it with their ravishing range of wedding separates.
This sexy but oh so cute fitted top and flowing skirt combo below not only looks fabulous, but it’s an excellent example of what we were talking about earlier when we said that separates can be chosen to flatter your figure perfectly.
The full circle chiffon skirt is just made for movement, and the fitted French Chantilly lace crop top keeps the look balanced and modern. Just imagine how your first dance photos would look if you were wearing this.
We love the attention to detail and the fact that the gathered Italian tulle skirt has been layered with a short lace lining, essentially forming a mini skirt, and a longer, delicate Chantilly lace overlay, with a scalloped eyelash hem.
Both the tulle skirt and the Chantilly lace underlay feature a centre front split to showcase your big day heels.
Be Totally Original
Whilst wedding dresses are divine, many follow the same shapes and styles. Now we haven’t got a problem with this, but if you’re looking for something quite original and totally “you” but don’t have the budget to go totally bespoke, then separates allow you to create your own unique look.
And if that look errs towards a romantic, timeless bohemian style, then this soft feminine combo is definitely one for you, especially if a destination wedding is on the cards.
Featuring a layered, eyelash lace skirt that comes to life the more you swish and twirl around,together with a Bardot style stretch French lace off-the-shoulder crop top, with a sweetheart lining at the bust and a sheer back, this is definitely a hot and sunny tropical beach perfect look.
On the practical side, it should pack and travel well too. Just don’t forget to send us your lovely photos if we’ve persuaded you that this is the combo for you.
Sublime Wedding Separates
We couldn’t take our eyes off this absolutely alluring wedding two piece by couture bridal gown designer Riki Dalal when we first saw it and even having viewed it several times, we still find it completely captivating.
Maybe it’s the intricate laser cut detail of the crop top, or the pearl effect embellishment to the neck creating a modern choker style necklace, such a clever idea.
Or maybe it’s the stunning fit and flow chiffon skirt with it’s perfectly placed high slit, making it as demure …….
or daring as you please.
Well, you know maybe it’s just that perfect combination of cover and reveal that makes this two piece an absolute hit with us.
Over to you now, lovely readers, what do you think? Do you have a favourite or do you love them all as much as we do? And have we perhaps swayed your opinion on bridal two pieces and is it a look that you perhaps hadn’t considered, but perhaps you will now? We’d love to have your thoughts.
