I am convinced that bridal separates are the best thing since sliced bread. Why? Because you literally get two dresses for the price of one. Want to wear a long formal gown and a cute cocktail dress to your wedding, but don’t want to buy two dresses? Boom. Separates. Want a skirt and a top you might actually wear again? Separates! And if you don’t want to sacrifice a beautiful wedding dress for the convenience of separates? Then you want Lace & Liberty. Because their new collection is off the hook.
Why Bridal Separates?
Founders Danielle and Jacqui launched Lace & Liberty last year with one objective in mind: making it easy—and affordable—to create a wedding day outfit you’re actually excited about (while taking out the frustration of trying to find one dress to rule them all). So if, say, your top half and bottom half aren’t the exact same proportions, then you can easily pick and choose a top and bottom that flatter you most (bonus: there are even options for sleeves). Add that to the fact that Lace & Liberty make every piece to measure, and you get a wedding dress that fits right the first time, rather than needing dozens of expensive alterations. Lace & Liberty tops begin at $150, skirts at $350, and gowns at $425—which means you can create your entire bridal look for anywhere between $500 and $1500.
The best part? Lace & Liberty is tripling the number of mix-and-match pieces they offer with a whole bunch of new necklines, skirt silhouettes, and color options. And because separates are all Lace & Liberty do, every item in their shop is specifically designed to work with other pieces, from tops and skirts to little white dresses you can throw a skirt over to make a formal wedding gown. They don’t even necessarily have to go with each other. You can just as easily pair a Lace & Liberty separate with something you already love (pants, crop top, sequins) for a look that’s bridal but, you know, not too bridal. Check out our favorites from their new collection.
BONUS: NEW bridal accessories
Try it On At Home
Okay, so maybe you’re totally on the separates bandwagon, but you’re still worried about buying a wedding dress online. Not a problem. Lace & Liberty’s Try On At Home Sample Box is just $30. It includes one sample skirt and one top or dress of your choice (plus accessories) that you can keep for up to three days, and try on in the comfort of your home in front of everyone with a relevant opinion on your bridal look before sending it back. If you decide to keep the item(s), they’ll deduct the $30 sample box price from the total order amount. A major perk of the Try On At Home is getting to experience the quality of Lace & Liberty’s fabrics and construction in person (which I’ve actually gotten to see myself, and they are stunning up close). Here’s what a recent customer had to say:
When you open the package, all the pieces are neatly bagged, separated, and decorated with cute tissue paper. Each item I received was incredibly crafted, of premium quality, and breathtakingly beautiful!!! Honestly, the dresses and skirts are better quality than some of the $3,000+ dresses I have tried on at shops. Not only are the pieces great, but it’s an amazing experience to try it on at your own home without the pressure of someone badgering you to make a decision. Seriously, for $30, you are DEFINITELY getting your money’s worth and then some (plus they pay for the return shipping). I highly recommend a Try On box!”
And that’s just the beginning of Lace & Liberty‘s top-notch customer service. Their goal is to provide an interactive and trustworthy online shopping experience, and to that end, they’re now offering video chats for brides who aren’t local in addition to their already useful FAQs videos.
