Why We’re Predicting Extravagant Wedding Dresses For 2021

Outdoor weddings, road trip honeymoons, and extravagant bridal fashion topped our recent trend report list for couples getting married in 2021. Couples are swapping a high guest count in exchange for smaller ceremonies with lavish wedding details. And what else falls under the category of “extravagance” than stunning wedding dresses!

Here to help provide some over-the-top wedding dress inspiration is Val Stefani’s most recent wedding dress collection. Val Stefani is an expert in turning a simple silhouette into something that glimmers in opulence. Say hello to unforgettable ballgowns like Violetta adorned in luxurious laces, and figure-flattering styles embellished in hand-sewn applique and beading on Diva.

These wedding looks play perfectly into our predictions of how brides will be styling themselves in 2021 because no detail is left unfinished. After a year of working from home, who wouldn’t be ready for Carmen‘s dramatically detailed train?

Lavish gowns aren’t exclusively fit for the opulent ballroom, no. Just last week we gave the guide on how to plan a luxurious wedding at home. Tip #1? Dress extravagantly.

Here’s why we’re predicting bold wedding dresses this year, and our helpful advice to encourage you to be extravagant with your bridal style.

Casualwear Fatigue

This is the biggest driving force for this year’s bold wedding looks: we’ve spent all of 2020 dressing casual on the daily. People have adapted to working from home and have fewer opportunities to get dressed up for a fancy night out. Needless to say, brides are more than ready to make a fashion statement. (And we are too!)

More Is More

Don’t feel like you have to wear a simple dress just because you’re having a smaller wedding. Our advice is to go for what makes you feel the most bridal, and of course, the most “you.”

Say yes to extravagant sleeves and a body-hugging silhouette like this stunning Harmony. Really, what makes you feel your absolute best is the perfect choice.

We think this “more is more” attitude will encourage brides to don bold accessories and invest in their dream wedding shoes, too!

Understated Now & Over-the-Top Later

We’re noticing many brides who have rescheduled their weddings are opting for smaller “minimonies” first. This means some brides are planning two ceremonies and realizing they want two different looks.

Whatever your bridal style, you can absolutely wear one dress now, and a second dress for your future occasion. This gives you the option to wear two styles that you love, even if they are completely different – say more casual for the smaller occasion and wildly extravagant for the big party later!

Smaller Weddings, Bigger Fashion Budgets

Some couples may be choosing to go a more simplified approach altogether (instead of rescheduling) and are scaling back their original wedding plans. So, instead of a budget for a 200 person party, they are having a more modest celebration with significantly fewer guests. This leaves wiggle room in the budget, even if it’s smaller, to make more of an impact with your wedding look. If you’re saving money in the budget from modifying your plans, then we give you full permission to splurge a bit more on your dream wedding dress.

If you’ve been quarantining together for a year, then wearing a statement-making look will really send your partner’s heart racing.

Adventurous Elopements

Just as our trend report explains, now is the perfect time for an elopement. Since the cost of eloping is inherently low, it gives couples the space to wear over-the-top looks.

Set your sights mountain high! A spaghetti-strap gown like Aida would be lovely for an intimate beach wedding, and with its beautiful lace train, would make a statement at the top of any lookout point or national park.

Live Stream Weddings Continue

Even after the pandemic, live stream weddings are here to stay! And not only will a smaller in-person guest list – with the rest watching live at home – allow the budget for more luxurious bridalwear but you’re going to want to add some extra oomph to sparkle on camera.

The most glamorous wedding day outfits will make the at-home live stream experience even more exciting. Dolce‘s sparkle tulle with its ornate lace-adorned bodice will glimmer in the lens of whatever live stream camera you’ve chosen.
