One of the biggest formalwear trends in 2019 is two piece dresses. This look can shine at weddings. Many bridal chain stores and big-name designers offer few or no two-piece wedding dress selections, but U.S. retailer BHLDN and small business owners on Etsy more than make up the difference.
This ethereal tulle set by SeniDey is perfect for brides seeking the woodland fairy look or a relaxed beach-friendly feel. The Sequoia top and Sage skirt are soft and airy with delicate folds and layers of tulle that lend to a romantic, delicate style.
SeniDay also offers this Zalia & Zarah bohemian rustic set. The off-the-shoulder top is made of silk and delicate lace, while the skirt of chiffon (my favorite fabric!) has a satin waistband and fluid silhouette that favors a variety of body shapes and sizes.
One of the best qualities of lace is its variety and versatility. There are as many patterns and styles of lace as there are creative minds out there to put it to use. This simple but refined design by TheBride2B uses a unique, striking lace pattern that fits the bohemian, vintage, or hippie styles.
TATIMAGIC offers an ivory corded lace top with a soft grey tulle skirt. Brides seeking a more modest look may love this one, as the lace top is lined and completely covers the back and shoulders.
For a more fitted, sexy style, TATIMAGIC has a long-sleeved corded lace crop top with a skirt in choices of tulle or ivory organza silk. The tulle skirt is available in several colors, including champagne, ivory, blush, or peach.
If a tropical beach aesthetic is what you seek, TheBride2B has a lace and chiffon set with a spaghetti strap crop top and simple skirt.
At BHLDN, a line of bridal separates in tops, skirts, and pants gives brides and enbies the opportunity to personally create their own dream look. Fabrics include lace, chiffon, satin, and silk, with both minimalist and decorative styles. Whether you want glam beaded bling or simple, casual comfort, the potential combinations at BHLDN have something for nearly everyone. The one downside is the lack of plus sizes; plus size shoppers will have better luck finding their perfect fit at the Etsy stores I mentioned above.
After seeing so many beautiful two-piece dresses on display for prom season, I hope to see this fun, alternative bridal trend increase on the wedding aisles. Happy dress shopping!
