Some brides know from day one of their engagement the type of wedding dress they will wear on their big day, but like a large number of brides to be, you are likely to have a wedding dress wish list of all the styles you want to try on when the lock down is over! Bridal Fashion Week had no shortage of wedding dress trends for 2020/21 brides to choose from, but if you are looking for the highlights we have brought together the top 5 wedding dress styles of 2020/21 for you to choose between, From short and chic to layers and ruffles there is something here to suit every bride to be…
If you are a fan of royal weddings then this style of wedding dress is the one for you. If you're looking to make an entrance, consider opting for a classic ball gown— and there are plenty of them in the 2020/21 collections of many wedding dress designers. The best thing about this attention-grabbing silhouette is that it is actually surprisingly versatile and works for most wedding styles. Go full-on Grace Kelly with heavy satin or Elizabethan with billowy sleeves. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn a few heads.
Ruffles and layers:
If ever there's a time to indulge your inner hopeless romantic, your wedding day is it—and it doesn't get more romantic than these frilly, ultra-feminine details. A ruffled and layered skirt adds dimension to a mermaid silhouette. A full skirt of frothy, cascading ruffles is both whimsical and fashion-forward. If you're on the hunt for a dress with some added flair but don't want the hassle of a full skirt or long train, look no further than a gown with light multi-layered skirt, perfect for twirling without the heft of a ball gown.
Lightweight wedding dresses:
Airy dresses are in, from streamlined ball gowns to sheer sheaths, light-as-air gowns are incredibly popular for 2020/21 brides. Effortless fabrics like tulle and organza give off a gorgeous ethereal vibe without any additional bulk, so you can hit the dance floor without stressing about tripping over your gown or feeling weighed down.
If you're going for a very casual wedding vibe or you are just looking for a good excuse to show some leg and a killer pair of shoes, then this 2020/21 wedding dress trend is for you. You could even go all out and have a full-length gown for daytime and a short dress for the evening celebrations, or kick off the celebrations by wearing a short bridal gown for your bridal shower, leaving no one with any doubt who is the bride to be.
Bring on the bling, with some glitz and glitter. A touch of sparkle is nothing new where bridal fashion is concerned. Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments are perfect for the bride who wants to make a big impression, but if you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkles, keep your accessories simple and let your glitzy gown do all the talking.

Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
