For brides continuing to move forward with city hall services and backyard micro-ceremonies, look no further. We love Alexandra Grecco’s simple mini since it can be worn well past the wedding day and Viktor Rolf’s off-the-shoulder dress, while short and long, will still create a big impression.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
There were lots of wedding dresses that fit any fairy queen. Floral motifs were seen at Oscar de la Renta and Mira Zwillinger, and Wiederhoeft took it to the next level by having a quite literal headpiece. Think ethereal and delicate, perfect for any wedding within the woods.
The Bridal Cape

They’re additionally a modern option to a veil. We especially such the cape when combined with Safiyaa’s minimal gown and Rasario‘s statement-making train.
The Unconventional Bride
We’re seeing increasingly more brides incorporating colour into their wedding wardrobes. Unconventional brides should pay attention to Monique Lhuillier’s blush-hued dress and Gracy Accad’s pale blue gown, which is reminiscent of Blair Waldorf’s wedding gown in Gossip Girl. Set the popularity in 2022 by having a one-of-a-kind non-bridal, bridal gown.

The bridal two-piece has turned into a classic for contemporary brides. Whether you’re a small bride curating a fuss-free wedding wardrobe or just shopping for all the events prior to the big ceremony, a stylish suit (or perhaps a skirt suit) goes a long way.
Go Big or Go Home
Make up for all the fun we missed out on in 2020 using these over-the-top wedding gowns. The exaggerated sleeves around the Wiederhoeft gown are princess worthy and The Atelier Couture by Prof. Jimmy Choo, OBE’s incredibly voluminous gown is really a guaranteed showstopper. Think over-the-top feathers and ruffles on ruffles!
