A Round-up of The Best Wedding Dresses of 2021
From white wedding dresses to bright and colourful traditional wedding attires, we’ve rounded up the best wedding dresses of 2021.
With all eyes on her, it is no wonder that brides put in plenty of thought into the dress she’ll be wearing as she walks down the aisle to the love of her life. Even as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic and celebrations are forced to be smaller than ever, finding that perfect dress for her wedding remains the utmost important for brides.
Despite weddings getting smaller, we see some brides going big for their once-in-a-lifetime with a grand ballgown, while some turn to more unique wedding outfits such as bridal jumpsuits and modern cheongsams. Traditional wedding attires are also making a comeback in weddings in 2021, and we think that adds an extra meaningful (and colourful!) touch to this milestone celebration. For a peek at what 2021 brides wore for their weddings, here’s a round-up of the best wedding dresses this year.
1. Wedding Jumpsuits
First of all, these aren’t your traditional wedding gowns, but that doesn’t make these bridal outfits any less beautiful! In fact, bridal jumpsuits or two-piece pant suits are a great way to break away from the conventional wedding dress and inject a modern touch to your wedding celebration. Plus, they’re easy to move around in, which is always a bonus!Jumpsuit from Love Wedding Atelier, Image from Phyllis and Leslie’s Lush, Light-Filled Wedding at Parkroyal Collection Pickering from Kai from Kai Picture Two-piece outfit from Stitch by Stitch Co.
