Top 10 wedding dress trends that will be sticking around for 2021

Getting married in 2021? Here’s our pick of the best wedding dress trends for the coming year.

1. Sleeves

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeing more and more weddings being booked in over this coming winter, making cold weather wedding trends even more important for 2021.

One of our favourite winter wedding dress trends is sleeves. As @confettimag says, “The best winter wedding trend has to be sleeves. No visible goosebumps or shivering in your wedding pics for you, nuh-uh!

2. Jumpsuits

Playful, contemporary and very on trend, wedding jumpsuits are perfect for brides who want a slightly different aesthetic for their big day.

Jumpsuits make it easier to really do your thing on the dance floor, so are perfect for brides who want to boogie the night away.

3. Non-wedding dresses

More and more brides are opting to forgo traditional wedding dress boutiques and get their gowns from the high street instead. Most high-end names have a selection of beautiful dresses that would look great on any bride. These outfits generally look less ‘wedding-y’ and come in a wider choice of colours and cuts.

4. Capes

Capes are fast becoming the must have accessories for 2021. Like sleeves, capes are a good way to add a bit of warmth to a winter wedding dress. They will also add a stylish twist to your gown and give you a more individual look.

5. A bit of blush

Although most brides still opt for white or ivory gowns, an increasing number are choosing to add a little colour to their wedding outfit. 

Blush wedding dresses are a subtle shade of pink. While not overpowering, the colour is strong enough to be seen in photos and is a great way to make a gown stand out from the crowd.

6. Sleek dresses

Sleek, elegant dresses don’t have any embellishments, flourishes or frills. Perfect for confident brides and those who want a pared-down look, these stylish gowns are going to be popular in 2021.

7. Boho wedding dresses

At the other end of the scale, boho dresses have lots of extra touches and design flourishes. Ideal for outdoor summer weddings, a boho dress will add a dreamlike touch to your big day.

8. Floral wedding dresses

By floral, we’re not talking about big floral prints, but rather floral embroidery and embellishments.

This style of dress is set to be big in spring and summer 2021, so make sure you grab yours now if you want to be right on trend.

9. Halter necks

When Meghan Markle wore a stunning halter neck dress to her wedding reception, it started a trend that’s still going. These sleek, stylish dresses are ideal for brides who want to cut an elegant figure on their big day.

10. Exposed corset

This trend swiftly made its way from the catwalk to the bridal boutique. While the striking look won’t be for everyone, an exposed corset dress could be the perfect choice for your wedding.
