Hi all, It’s Lauren, from I Love Love Events, today I have a super fun Steal This Style post for the brave bride. An alternative to the traditional wedding dress, a two piece option, a skirt and a top. Separates are a hot trend in bridal wear right now, and I’ll help you decode exactly how to make this work for you. Separates leave you with tons of opportunities for mixing, matching and creating a unique look. From short and white to long and blush, these skirts can be paired with crop tops to flannel button-ups. Anything goes! Here are a few of my favorites…

BRIDAL SKIRT - ALTERNATIVE TO A TRADITIONAL DRESS

For a beach wedding, I love this set from BHLDN. The boxier silhouette looks a little casual, but the embellishments make it formal. Worn with a sandal and a tan, this color will look amazing! Bridal Skirt for Beach Wedding IMAGE CREDIT: BHLDN

This full midi-skirt and matching crop top, make for the ultimate fashion-forward look to wear to a city hall ceremony. Pair it with some hot platforms and you’ll get the money shot as you exit the cab.

I have loved this look ever since I first laid eyes on it. Only for the boldest brides, the ultra-feminine skirt paired with a flannel is uber cool for a fall or winter wedding. Bonus, this look works great for bridesmaids too! Bridal Skirt for Fall Wedding IMAGE CREDIT: Ciara Richardson

5 TIPS FOR WEARING A BRIDAL SKIRT:


  • Having two pieces allows you to change just one (top or bottom) for a fun reception look.
  • If you’re a shoe gal (aren’t we all?), choose a midi skirt to show off your special wedding pair.
  • A bridal skirt is fun and unexpected, don’t be afraid to continue the eye-catching styling through your accessory choices.
  • If you’re not bold enough to rock this fashion-forward choice for your main event, you simply must try it for the rehearsal dinner or bridal shower!
  • Finally, it’s okay to dress the top down for maximum impact, Jenna Lyons (the first photo above) rocked a t-shirt, and that flannel looks as cool as any traditional wedding dress.
