7 Wedding Dress Trends For 2021 Brides

From statement sleeves, to sequins and sparkles, 2021 wedding dress trends have been influenced greatly by the events of 2020. Whether you’re a bride who has postponed and looking to update your dress because you’re now getting married in a different season, or a bride looking forward to their 2021 wedding, and still on the hunt for the perfect dress for the big day, we’re here to take you through the top 7 wedding dress trends for 2021.


Statement Sleeves

Statement sleeves are the way to go for 2021, and whatever season you are getting married in, there’ll be a sleeve that’s perfect for it. For autumn/winter a full fabric sleeve with detailed cuffs or a cold shoulder sleeve in a textured fabric will be right on trend. For spring/summer go for a softer option with a delicate detailed lace or a simple tulle sleeve. If you’re someone who wants to cover their arms this will be music to your ears, as we see more and more sleeves on dresses in boutiques!

Capes and Cover Ups

Some couples that were due to get married in 2020 may find themselves now getting married in a different season and therefore need a more suitable look for the big day! Capes and cover ups are now your best friend if you find yourself in this position, and there are so many different options out there depending on your style and vision. Think soft and floaty, or draped in lace, they can add a dreamy romantic look to your dress for the big day.

Romantic Ballgowns

The ballgown is back! A traditional look that’s been vacant for a few years but is back with force in 2021, and it’s had a makeover! We’re not talking princess tulle, it’s now soft flowing fabric with textured layers and a slightly higher waistline, perfect for a pear or hourglass silhouette!

Modern Lace

Lace is both versatile and beautiful on any bridal gown, whether you’re having a grand affair, a festival wedding, or an intimate soiree; you can’t go wrong with 2021’s modern lace options. Think modern placement lace, 3D abstract florals and vines, and much less vintage. It can be added to any style gown to add drama and effect and is a popular choice for brides.

Simple and Chic

if you're having a "marry now/party later" wedding, a simple and chic dress is perfect as it means you can add extra details to make it two completely different looks for the different events, and you get to wear your dress twice! Whether it’s a ballgown or a sheath design, a simple wedding dress will always steal the show - let your dress speak for itself.

All About The Back

Low backs have been popular for a few seasons now, but in 2021 the details are even more profound when it comes to the back of your dress. Illusion backs will be replaced with open backs and big bows and bustles will be gracing hip lines. This is a great option if you’re looking for a little update on your current dress as this can easily be added, and will definitely make a statement when you’re walking down the aisle.

Sparkles and Sequins

For most couples in 2021 it will be all about the party, and both you and your guests are going to need it. Sequins and sparkles are back to bring that party vibe alive, but in 2021 they come in the form of romance. Chic, floaty dresses with added sequins and sparkle tulles and laces. Perfect for the romantic ceremony and the big bash party afterwards, definitely dresses to dance the night away in!
