2021 has been a rollercoaster for brides and grooms to be! We have seen everything from Micro Weddings, Postponed Weddings, Garden Weddings to Barn Weddings and everything in between! The main trend to have emerged following lockdown has been when the going gets tough, brides get creative!

1. Backless

Backless or illusion backs are loved by brides across the world due to their elegance and versatility. With a Sabrina neckline, this fit and flare gown is sure to accentuate your figure and is finished with a chapel length train. A backless dress is a timeless classic and one that will never go out of fashion!

2. Statement Train

Detailed statement trains are a huge trend of 2021! Look and feel like an angel in our amazing Nasima gown. This form-fitting gown with Chantilly lace and a sweetheart neckline create an ethereal look. That gorgeous dramatic train you see is actually detachable! Nasima goes from a soft mermaid to refined sheath-style gown for that perfect cake-cutting look that'll lead to non-stop celebratory dancing!

3. Hollywood Glamour

Our brand new Justin Alexander dresses are some of our favourites in the shop. This A-line wedding dress offers old Hollywood glamour, a popular trend post lockdown! With a sexy V-neck and back, the hand beaded bodice adds serious shimmer. Perfect for a plus size bride, it's paired with an uncomplicated chiffon skirt with a chapel length train. For more modesty, this can be ordered with a raised neckline. You can also order this with a crepe fit and flare skirt to really accentuate those curves!

4. Square Necklines

A square neckline is a stylish and minimalist option for your wedding day that has a hint of 90's nostalgia. This beautiful, organza wedding dress will take your breath away. The unlined bodice features a modern square neckline on the front and back that is detailed with sexy exposed boning. Get your hands on this look here.

5. Maxi Bows

The bigger, the better! We absolutely love a statement piece and what better than to say it with a bow! We first seen bows come in delicate waist or back adornments, whereas this year, we are seeing larger-than-life bows and bringing some drama to your wedding dress. Take a look at Niamh's amazing dress from her wedding in Dubrovnik which featured a large bow at the back, hello Royal Wedding vibes! If you want a show-stopping bridal moment, this is the dress for you!

6. A Pop of Colour

2021 for the majority of people has all been about makeshift or postponed weddings as most ceremonies have had a limited numbers of guests. For this reason, we have seen a huge variety of bridesmaid attire from jumpsuits, tea dresses, and stunning, minimalistic gowns. Powder blue and sage green have been key colours this year and we love emerald greens and deep purples for coming into winter. Shop more bridesmaid looks here

7. Dropped Sleeves

Who doesn't love an off-the-shoulder wedding dress? A dropped shoulder or sleeve is flattering for every figure and suits every dress style. We love pairing this with a messy updo and drop earrings for a chic and romantic look. 

8. Belts

A belt can be a stunning addition to the right wedding dress depending on the style and fit. A fine belt is the perfect accessory to add a hint of sparkle to your beloved gown. An embellished belt works perfectly with a minimalistic, ivory dress and can transform your bridal look to the next level.

9. Long Sleeves

With Winter fast approaching, we love not only the look but also the practicality of long sleeved dresses. All eyes will be on you in this crepe long sleeve gown. It features a pearl seam detail down the sleeves, along the wrists and at the neckline. Long sleeves also give the appearance of a smaller waist, with this dress less is definitely more! 

10. Headbands

We love the headband trend this year from embellished headbands, to princess tiaras and even floral crowns. Whether you are going for a classic, vintage or bohemian style, a headband is the perfect way to top of your look for modern brides. Shop our show stopping bridal hair accessories for you or your bridal entourage here
