If this is your second walk down the aisle or you’re preparing for your vow renewal, why not look outside-of-the-box when it comes to bridal fashion? Don’t worry about staying within the rules of what’s outlined for a “traditional” bride and, instead, take a peek at these alternative, whimsical two-piece wedding gowns.
There’s a variety of styles here including those that fit within a destination-inspired theme or a more formal event. Browse through some of the contemporary favorites below:
This ensemble has a traditional, princess vibe mixed with a modern twist that has us swooning. Made with a horsehair finish which creates the extra bouts of volume and drama to the layers of the skirt, it’s a refreshing take on the present-day trends.
For those that love lace, this top and bottom will win you over. It’s a more casual look for those that want something with less fun but still very much a bridal vibe. It’s a great choice for those planning a destination escape or elopement.
For those with bohemian tendencies but an ultra-romantic vision, the Ophelia comes to mind. The mixture of textures makes it a really unique find and the silhouette is versatile and accessible to a variety of shapes and sizes.
This gown is two-pieces but not in what you may expect. The design features a full satin gown and a lace bolero that includes lace scalloped edges and a full button back. Wear the traditional topping for your ceremony and then take it off for the after-party!
Here’s another romantic beauty that we’ve fallen for. The bodice includes fresh lace appliques with a keyhole back while pairing easily with the chiffon skirt. If you want a more dimensional choice, opt for the ivory and gold combination.

These are three pieces that have come together to make this youthful ensemble. This is the kind of bridal style that works well within a variety of themes. Be it destination weddings, springtime events, or summer garden affairs, this Houghton NYC design will top it off perfectly.
Our personal favorite on the list, the Songbird style from Halfpenny London is such a showstopper. The camisole is chic and neat allowing the layers skirt to take center stage. If you’re in love with drama and luxury, this twist on the peplum trend deserves an extra look.
Our friends at ASOS knocked it out of the park with this two-piece, budget-friendly design. Lace covered and coming in a variety of accessible sizes, this is the winner for those dreaming of a romantic (and quick) elopement.
