Who would have ever thought that it would take a pandemic to change our plans for our dream wedding! From larger than life weddings now scaled down to intimate gatherings and our bridal attire goals undergoing a total revamp. In this trip of over-the-top dressing to subtle statement outfits, let’s take a peek into the bridal trends this year!
— Overemphasized Ruffles
There was a time when laces and embellishments used to do all the taking on an otherwise simple wedding gown. In 2021 ruffles are the additional fabric with frills and cuts adding all that oomph to your big day.
— Shoulder Capes
You are your own superhero! No better outfit to portray a strong headed character, who is here to rule and slay. These netted capes add the extra factor and fulfill your wishlist of a bespoke wedding attire.
—Off-Shoulder Balloon Sleeves
Over the years sleeves have paved its way on becoming a prime aspect for any bridal attire to be qualified. With minimal being the bridal trend, these off-shoulder puffed sleeves either laced or netted make the dress flattering and suits every body shape.
We talk about adding extra fittings or embroidery to a dress, but what’s caught the eye recently is fabric-over-fabric style. Transitional pieces are all about stylish cuts and flawless tailoring, where the fabric itself is what makes the attire grand. Extra large bows, cloth pleats and fabric frills to name a few.
They are also known as high-low dresses, which have a high hem in the front than at the back. These dresses are a combo of midi and maxi or classic and modern. They are apt for brides who would love to flaunt their lean legs while retaining its authenticity.
Which style would you pick for your dream day?
