2021 Wedding Dress Trends

2021 Wedding Dress Trends

As 2021 continues, we can’t help but to admire the gorgeous trends coming out of this year that we can’t wait to see more of in 2022. These trends are some of the first out of this new decade, and we can’t wait to see what comes next. If you’re looking for the latest bridal trends, get inspired by our staff’s favorites that will make you stand out beautifully:

Bold Textures

200131 by Demetrios



While this trend covers everything from ruffles to applique, casting a wide net, we’re still in love with it. More and more designs have been featuring breathtaking texture, giving the dresses stunning detail no one can take their eyes off of. Just look at the unique skirt on this Demetrios gown: the layers are subtle, but creating a stunning texture that moves beautifully as you walk for a jaw-dropping wedding dress. 

Simple and Chic

D3340 by Essense of Australia



While intricate lace, sparkles, and delicate details have dominated bridal fashion for years, brides are starting to opt for sleek, modern wedding dresses with minimalist details—and we think it’s a new trend spurred by Megan Markle’s stunning, classic wedding dress. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean all detail is gone—designs like this Essense of Australia mermaid dress feature subtle draping and expert construction to create detail you’ll love. 

Bishop Sleeves

LP2117 by La Perle by Calla Blanche



We never saw the return of the bishop sleeve to bridal fashion coming, but we’re thrilled it’s here. A far cry from the big sleeves of the 80’s and 90’s, the new bishop sleeve is flowing, romantic, and bohemian, perfect for brides who love unique bridal looks. Look at the gorgeous lace bishop sleeves on this La Perle gown! Ethereal and dreamy, the sleeves take this dress to the next level, and we can’t wait to see more designs with flowing bishop sleeves.
