Skirt the Issue

There is no shortage of gorgeous wedding gowns out there. See here, here, oh and here. OK, we know this. But, I am always on the lookout for fresh approaches to wedding day fashion. While the concept of two-piece formal wear is not a new one (those midriff baring skirt and top combos from prom still haunt me), it is a fairly new idea for bridal fashion. And there are some pretty delightful options out there right now!

Tulle is taking over. It’s even begun to make a name for itself outside of the bridal fashion universe and stores like Ann Taylor and BHLDN are catching on. These two skirts, considered wedding separates, are downright dreamy.

To achieve a more traditional look, consider one of these two options which offer a trumpet silhouette and the always coveted ballgown look.

Love the idea of a skirt, but not sure what the heck to put on top? Depending on your style and the level of formality of your wedding, you can pair a skirt with almost anything. A halter corset top from BHLDN, a sequined tank from Neiman Marcus or a chiffon tiered top from Ann Taylor?

With prices ranging from $300 to just under $1,000, this option may or may not save you some money, but will allow you a bit more freedom to create a completely unique, one of a kind look.
