There’s no wrong time to get married to the love of your life. And if you have already decided on the date, then it’s time to think about the rest. Fashion is more important than ever before. What was once all about the ceremony look has now become about the wedding wardrobe: from the civil ceremony to the welcome events, rehearsal dinner, reception, and the after-party. No matter the size of the event, 2021 finally has us looking forward to fashion again. 

We’ve looked to the latest bridal, ready-to-wear, and Haute Couture collections to help you navigate your wedding wardrobe for this year’s nuptials. From new silhouettes to fresh takes on colour and trends past, consider this the fashion bride’s guide to dressing for 2021 weddings.

Bold shoulders

The ’80s have been making a comeback on runways for seasons—and bold shoulders are just another nod to fashion’s most daring decade. Puff sleeves give the body a postural presence, while blouson sleeves feel poetic and romantic, with an edge. Bold shoulder details work double duty, feeling dreamy while offering the daring touch that thinks outside the strapless, off-shoulder, and plunging neckline standards.

Countless ways to wear lace

Lace is bridal’s most prominent mainstay. To reinvent its traditional wheel proves challenging: from laser-cut laces and graphic embroidery to statement motifs and all the re-embroidered and three-dimensional options in between, there are countless new ways to wear lace.

Whether you’re after a slim fit, an A-line, or a ball gown, there’s a new take on lace that’s far beyond basic Chantilly to suit any style. Lean into all the new laces, from Tom Ford’s patchwork to Dior’s formal riff on Guipure and consider how they’ll best suit your wedding’s setting. 

Nature-inspired and floral laces feel outdoorsy and effortless, while more graphic options feel like a modern take on metropolitan wedding dressing. Bring the feel of your gown into your veil for an even more significant impact—but when you do, be sure the look still feels authentic and soft, rather than overwhelming.

Bohemian Bride

Another update to the boho bridal’s past: this year, she comes with an added polish. Bishop sleeves, smocking, empire waists, and overall ease characterise this look, equal parts Victoriana and fashion fairy nymph.

While each designer interpreted this effortless, chic, prairie-inspired look differently, some more modern than others, this is for the girl looking to tap into her inner romantic without dabbling in festival dressing.
