This summer has been a real scorcher, and we’ve been dreaming about destination weddings… beachy soirées with amazing tropical feel cocktails, incredible ocean-inspired gowns, and of course… the prettiest white bikinis.
Sometimes, dreams come true.
Recently, our owner and creative director Hailey Erin Yeager was asked to be a destination wedding contributor for major lifestyle blog Bikini.com. And lucky you, dear reader… we’re taking you along for the ride. Weekly, we’ll be featuring Hailey’s Bikini.com articles, in addition to special edition posts on Two Roads weddings, real weddings we love, our vendors picks, styled shoots, and favorite industry trends.

The crop top wedding gown? It might just be the wow factor beach brides seek.
Choosing a wedding gown is arguably the greatest sartorial saga of a woman’s life. The choice between a mermaid shape and a sheath is suddenly defining. The decision between white and ivory feels epic. After trying on a million dresses (and not being able to walk in any of them), your mother-in-law is finally weighing in.
Resist the urge to cry, scream, and settle for that mediocre dress you found at some unimpressive sample sale. The crop top is making waves on the catwalk, infiltrating the chicest of street style, and now contending to be your favorite wedding accessory. Our advice? Take the plunge and show a little skin.
Whether you’re drawn to the boho or the structured, clean lines or vintage lace, the crop top gown is a sexy and versatile silhouette that achieves the elusive, coveted balance between timeless and edgy. For the bride looking to showcase her personal style without losing the tried-and-true feel of a wedding dress, crop top gowns couldn’t be more on point.
So the question is, which crop top gown are you? Take a look at our top picks, and let us know your favorites.
