40 totally chic wedding dress separate ideas for unique brides
by Stephanie

Call it the Olivia Palermo effect or call it 2015's hottest wedding dress look — whichever way you look at it, it's clear that wedding dress separates are a BIG new wedding trend that brides everywhere are embracing. After all, there's no wedding rulebook that says you have to wear a one-piece wedding dress on the big day — so why not switch it up and make your wedding day look totally unique?

The best part about wedding dress separates is that you can mix and match to create a perfect look. BHLDN is embracing this trend with their recent "build your own look" boutique of mix-and-match skirts and tops, and it's easy to find at least one wedding dress separate look in nearly every wedding designer's most recent collection.

Whether you're going for a boho crop top lace wedding ensemble or a tulle skirt with a feminine beaded top, there's no going wrong with choosing a wedding dress separate look this year (or even for the next few years)! So get inspired with these 40 totally unique & chic looks on real brides, and see if this trend is right for you...

How pretty are all these wedding dress separates? The best part is that they're incredibly versatile — you can opt for a casual bridal look with tank top and tulle skirt, or make it extra-dressy with a beaded bolero and strapless wedding dress. Of course, if you go for a skirt/top combo, you can even reuse them later after the wedding day is over!
