11 best two-piece wedding dresses for fashion-forward brides

As we enter the hottest season of the year, the rush to pin down a stylish summer gown begins. With plenty of fantastic options on the market, there is one particular style that has nearly-weds obsessed – two-piece wedding dresses.


A brilliant statement piece and a resurgent trend which has been rocked by many A-listers, two-piece wedding dresses are a timeless style that can be adapted to suit various silhouettes. Whether you are after something modest and elegant or are leaning towards a more relaxed, boho gown, two-piece wedding dresses are available in a variety of styles.

The versatility of a two-piece wedding dress is also worth mentioning. These gowns provide just the right amount of comfort in warmer weather, allowing you to move as freely as you please on your special day whilst showing off a little skin. Another notable bonus of a two-piece wedding gown is the ability to customise your bridal look to your distinctive style. You also have the option to buy each piece separately, which is ideal for those who are after more creative control when it comes to showcasing their personal style.

From long-sleeved lace crop tops with bateau necklines, to midriff-baring halters embellished with beads, coordinating your two-piece wedding dress allows you to experiment with proportions, selecting pieces which look flattering on your physique.

You can even wear your two-piece wedding dress after you get married! Try pairing a glittering bodice with jeans for a casual affair, or consider tailoring your wedding skirt to a shorter length - this is a great way to maximise your investment. For those simply thrilled by the concept of a two-piece wedding dress, we’ve put together a fabulous selection of co-ords to help ignite some inspiration.
