First rule when it comes to dressing for your big day: it's your big day. Grandma will live if you don't want to wear her ruched-waist gown from the 1940s—and no, the mermaid style doesn't suit everyone. (Unless everyone is Sofia Vergara.) So if you're shopping for the gown, remember one thing. Er, two, actually: you can wear a two-piece dress at the altar.
For style inspiration, look no farther than Morgan Stewart. The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star blogs about fashion regularly on her blog Boobs & Loubs. So when she wed beau Brendan Fitzpatrick this past weekend, Stewart made a bold, lacy style statement. "You guys didn't actually think I was going to show up in a boring old wedding dress did YOU? Don't you know me at alllllll," she posted to Twitter. Get a load of this "two-piece moment:"
According to People, the bride's two-piece gown was custom made by Badgley Mischka, and Martin Katz jewels added a little bling. For the record: Fitzpatrick, who also appears on the Bravo show, wore a Tom Ford Suit.
Stewart kept the look going at her reception, when paired the lacy top with a short, sparkling skirt that added a little disco fever to her look.
Though she rocked the crop-bridal-top her own way, Stewart's not the first Bravoleb to go for a two-piece wedding gown. When she tied the knot with music producer Micheal Shay, Vanderpump Rules star Scheana also aimed for the crop. Shay's gown, which was custom made by her aunt, also underwent a little tweak for the after-party. "The top was so heavy it kept falling down, so she sewed in straps for the reception," she spilled to In Touch. (And, FYI: Lisa Vanderpump herself approved the look.)
Another free-spirited bride, Ashlee Simpson wore a two-piece gown by Houghton Bride for her wedding in 2014. With her locks down and loose under a prim tiara, Simpson looked like a boho princess.
So, what do you think? Would you stage your own "two-piece moment?" (And will #TwoPieceMoment be the next big wedding hashtag?) We'll leave you to mull.
