When it comes to wedding dress trends, changes in silhouettes, collar models and skirt lengths are inevitable. If you are one of the brides-to-be who had to postpone their wedding in 2020, or you recently got engaged don't worry, you will be dazzling in your chosen style at your wedding in the new year.


An Overview of 2021's Wedding Dress Trends


When we look at the bridal dress trends of 2021 in general, we see simple, elegant models and soft fabrics. Models inspired by the 90s are quite popular: Square necklines, satin slip dresses reminiscent of Kate Moss' style…


On the Radar

Short dresses for smaller wedding ceremonies and celebrations are a very trendy option in 2021. Wedding dresses with interchangeable pieces are on the popular choice list of brides who want to have different looks during and after the wedding ceremony.

The cape and full tulle top skirts are among the most trendy models you can choose for open-air wedding ceremonies or weddings.

Inspired by high fashion, we have brought together the most striking bridal trends you need to know from Bridal Fashion Week.



Short Wedding Dresses

If you are going to have a smaller wedding as a pandemic bride or are planning a ceremony via Zoom, this trend is for you.  




Can we call the cape the new veil now? Yes for 2021! Moreover, this new piece, which has more functions than a standard veil, will instantly take your look to the next level and add an extra romantic touch to your style.



Ruffle Details

It's time to reveal the incurable romantic within you. Ruffle detailed bridal gowns that make you feel ultra-feminine will add depth to your silhouette and will make you look much more striking on this big day.  




Modern brides, this is for you. Simple and minimalist crepe bridal gowns took over all the runways at Bridal Fashion Week. Crepe, with its striking line that can be designed with silk, wool or synthetic fabric types, is a very light option that will adapt perfectly to all seasons. If you want to have an ornate look, you can choose pieces such as overalls, skirts, trousers, or you can make your style flashy with embroidered corsets or striking arm details.  



Bishop Sleeve

These models inspired by the '80s are modern versions of Princess Diana's balloon sleeved wedding dress. If you are going to prefer bishop sleeve wedding dresses that will make your tasteful romantic side visible, we recommend that you balance your style by choosing simple accessories for the rest of your look. If you wish, you can save the time of searching for a new dress for afterparty by choosing a wedding dress with a detached bishop sleeve.  



Fine Glitters

Don't be afraid to stand out. The day is yours! While Glitz is nothing new when it comes to bridal fashion, we encountered current versions of glitters in the Bridal Fashion Week. Shiny models, which are a great option for weddings that take place after sunset, add a spiritual touch to every silhouette. If you are going to choose a glamorous gown, keep your accessories simple and let your dress take over the show.  



Jumpsuits and Trousers

As an alternative to stylish bridal gowns, these comfortable and flashy pieces will reveal your body shape and will help you achieve a striking look. Also, it's impossible not to feel cool with these special pieces! All lace models, removable sleeve details and sparkling fabric bring a modern update to classic white overalls in the 2021 bridal trends.  


Square Necklines

The square neckline, popular during the Renaissance, is making its comeback. This edgier, more geometric style will reveal your collarbone, straighten your shoulders and keep you upright. Ready to hear the best part? You can be a classic bride with satin fabric, romantic with floral lace and a modern bride with crepe.   



Slip Dresses

Famous with style icons such as Kate Moss and Caroline Bessette-Kennedy in the 90s, this silhouette brings a new breath to bridal fashion. While the curve-skimming satin is a great option for more formal organizations, a breezy model with skinny straps is made exactly for a destination wedding. For a more modest take on this inherently sultry trend, add a lace topper or detachable sleeves to your ensemble.  



Layered Skirts

If you are looking for a different wedding dress model but don’t want to get drowned in details such as a long tail or very fluffy skirt, wedding dresses with layered skirt designs are just for you. While this model adds dimension and extra volume to your style -but not weight- and prevents you from having a boring look.  

Sustainability in Wedding Dress Fashion

Of course, brides also consider sustainability. Global fashion platform Lyst reported that online bridal searches increased 38% year-on-year, with an average of 20,000 searches per month, including the words "vintage" and "second hand". Net-a-Porter confirmed this trend by saying that brides are looking for patterns of suits and satin dresses that they can re-wear beyond the big day.
