Separates/Two Piece


KAREN WILLIS HOLMES has always catered to the modern bride; whether that be in the form of a bride looking for a timeless feel with a dash of contemporary, or someone who’s looking to be a trendsetter in their own right and take the path less traveled—or completely untraveled.

We love it when our brides express themselves on their wedding day and show off their personalities and flair. Wearing bridal separates and two-piece wedding dresses on your big day is such an incredible way to do just that.

Our handmade, Australian wedding gowns have gone beyond just dresses and we have other looks and pieces to go further than the status quo.

Wedding gown separates say that you are fully embracing your style and body and that you’re unafraid to put on display how you envision yourself for your big day.

Having a casual beach wedding? A two-piece wedding dress combo with a crop top and skirt still defines you as the bride but in a relaxed, fun way. Getting married at the registry office or City Hall? Bridal pantsuits or jumpsuits give you that second-to-none wedding day feeling while still staying true to your bridal vision.

Of course, two-piece wedding dresses and wedding separates aren’t just only for a more laid back ceremony or reception, they can make for a jaw-dropping second look or just the perfect complement to your true personality for your grand, classic wedding. The beauty of your wedding is that you make the rules.

I Don't Live Near a KWH Boutique or Stockist, How can I Purchase a KWH Gown or Obtain Expert Advice?

If you don’t live near a KWH boutique, contact our customer service team directly and we will have a solution for you to secure your dream gown. Our team can also offer you styling advice via phone or email. Feel free to contact them on +61 2 9519 3901 or info@karenwillisholmes.com.

What if I Have a Short Timeline?

We do carry stock of some gowns in-house, or we can sometimes make an ELOPE or BESPOKE gown in much shorter timeframes if we have all the fabric and time in our production calendar to fit your order in. As well, our LUXE line is a ready-to-wear line which means we can work with a shorter time frame as long as your desired gown is in stock. While we can work with shorter time frames, we always recommend a longer timeline, as having a shorter one will limit what is available to you.

If you have a short time frame, please contact us on info@karenwillisholmes.com or + 61 2 9519 3901 to discuss your options.

Will I Need Alterations?

Alterations are expected and essential for the finishing touches to any gown and will make the gown truly yours. When purchasing a gown, we take your body measurements to help determine the closest standard size to your body based on our size chart. However, alterations are needed to fine-tune for fit and to your personal preference. Whether that means taking in a gown to make it smaller for your hips, bust, or waist (or maybe everywhere), adding cups, shortening straps, hemming the length, and adding in the bustle for your train, alterations are a standard part of the whole process.

How do I Style a Separate/Two Piece Wedding Dress?

We adore how our separate styles look with our veils and trains. For an unexpected combination of modern and classic, adding a veil to your two piece dress is a gorgeous combination. Adding a train can give you volume for your ceremony or amplify your look to feel even more truly bridal for part of your day. 

What is a Separate/Two Piece Wedding Dress?

Each separate/two piece bridal look has a distinctly modern and contemporary feel that gives brides the option to feel relaxed and completely themselves on their big day. 

Where can I try on KWH Separate/Two Piece Dresses in Person?

Have you fallen in love with one of our handmade wedding dresses? We have boutiques across Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth where you can work with our dedicated bridal stylists and try on your KWH favourites. You can also visit one of our many stockists across the globe if our boutiques are not in your area.

What is the Lead Time for a Separate/Two Piece Dress?

Gowns from the ELOPE & BESPOKE collections are made in Australia and are made to order to a standard size- whatever size you measure closest to at the time of your appointment. We recommend a booking lead time of 6 – 8 months, however, because we make these gowns in our own workroom we can sometimes work with shorter time frames.

Gowns from the LUXE collection are sold from stock or available for pre-order. Due to the nature of this collection the gowns are sold on a first come first serve basis.

Gowns from the WILD HEARTS & CURVE collections are made in Australia and our recommended lead time is 4 months from your wedding date, plus time for alterations.
