Bridal separates are the perfect way to tailor your dream wedding silhouette to your body and to your exact vision. Whether you're looking for voluminous skirts, slinky satin camisoles, embellished corsets, and capes or tailoring, now you can encompass it all!
From Nicola Peltz's Dior wedding suit when she married Brooklyn Beckham to Vogue cover girl Olivia Palermo's dreamy tulle high-low trailing skirt and knitted top, we can't get enough of this underutilised wedding style. Amal Clooney's chic tailored two-piece for her Italian civil ceremony with George Clooney and Portia De Rossi's Zac Posen gown when she married Ellen DeGeneres are being reimagined by Coast, Whistles and many more retailers right now.
