When it comes to wedding dresses, classic white ball gowns are always in style. However, there are many wedding dress trends for 2021/2022 that breathe new life into the classic silhouettes we all know and love. From floral accents and earthy hues to minimalist and functional, check out our favorite bridal attire trends for the upcoming wedding seasons.
Floral Print Wedding Dresses
Flowers symbolize growth and new life - so incorporating floral prints into your wedding dress is a beautiful way to celebrate your new future with your soon-to-be-spouse. For a bold look, consider a gown with vibrant, oversized floral adornments. For a more traditional look, opt for an ivory gown complete with delicate floral appliqué.
Light & Airy Dresses
From knee-length dresses to light, flowing gowns - comfort is the name of the game. Whether you are planning a barefoot beachfront wedding at sunset or afternoon brunch nuptials in a blooming garden, a light and airy dress is the perfect combination of both comfort and style.
Ruffles and Tiers
The classic ball gown is re-imagined with the addition of ruffles and tiers. Perfect for brides who love the idea of a fairy-tale wedding dress, ruffled skirts on an a-line or ball gown silhouette can add a trendy touch to a timeless style.
Buff & Green
When it comes to trending wedding dress colors, buff is the new blush. Earthy tones are all the rage for wedding dresses - with tans and greens being a couple of the hottest hues right now. For a more traditional gown, buff or champagne are eye-catching alternatives to white. For a subtle pop of color, sage and seafoam greens add a unique element to any wedding dress.
Blazers, Bridal Suits, and Jumpsuits
More and more brides are choosing to break from tradition and opt for a sleek bridal suit as opposed to a classic wedding gown. From blazer-style dresses to jumpsuits and bridal suits, there are a variety of ways to incorporate the suit trend into your wedding aesthetic.
