2021 wedding dresses

2021 Top trends for wedding dresses.

Each year comes in with new trends for brides; sometimes, it is a specific colour, a fabric, or even accessories. At the end of the day, each woman should wear whatever makes her feel like a bride, but there is nothing wrong with having a little bit of inspiration and knowing what is trending. We gathered some of the most popular trends for 2021 bridal styles.

Sleeves

Sleeves had become a focal point of wedding dresses, with anything from an oversized and fluffy sleeve to intricate lace long sleeves. There is a unique sleeve for every style. If you are looking for a romantic wedding dress, you can go for a long-laced sleeve. For the modern bride, a structural wedding dress with a statement sleeve is ideal.

Having a sleeved dress also provides the opportunity of showing some back. Styles that look conservative on the front and have a wow factor on the back are trending right now. Puffy sleeves that remind us of the eighties are coming back; they work perfectly with princess style dresses and modern approaches.

Capes

What better way to replace the traditional veil than a modern and stylish cape? They come in all sizes and fabrics. The best part is how they work with almost every silhouette and neckline. One of our favourites is the modern look. A simple and plain white dress, with a boat or square neck, along with a cape made from the same fabric.

A mermaid or trumpet silhouette can be accentuated by wearing a cape. Depending on the aesthetic you are looking for, it could be made from lace or even feature details like embroidery or beads. For a romantic look, you can prefer an A-line figure with a sheer cape delicately covering your shoulders.

And just as veils, they come in multiple lengths. You can have a short cape, one that equals the length of your dress, and even a dramatic cathedral length. Capes also work with nontraditional options like jumpsuits or simple dresses. They add a touch of sophistication and glamour and make you look like a queen.

Simplicity

For couples choosing to host an intimate wedding or those who are only having a civil ceremony buying a wedding gown does not seem right. A bride might feel overdress if they plan to host a small dinner at home or perhaps attend a local restaurant.

The best option for those scenarios is to pick a simple dress. Nothing to fancy, dramatic, or fluffy. Simple lines that wrap the body and make you feel like a bride. There are many options out of the bridal boutiques that could fit perfectly for your wedding.

A long slip dress with spaghetti straps in a cream or white tone will look flawless and classic. A sheath dress looks beautiful in any body type, and if you combine it with a round neckline or lace details, you have a winner.

Smart buying

As we all become more conscious about our fashion choices, brides are now looking for new options to avoid buying a dress that will only be worn for a couple of hours and then end up stored for years.

One of the biggest trends is to give a dress a second life. You can find many local and online stores that buy dresses for former brides for soon to be brides to give them life. Another option is to borrow your mother or best friend wedding dress. You can always update a vintage dress by adding new accessories or changing a bit of the original dress.

And if wedding dresses are not for you, the alternative is to buy a dress that can suit your wedding and then repurpose it for other events, or even for your daily life. When you buy a simple and classic dress in a cocktail or tea-length, the chances are that you can wear it many more times with the right accessories.

Two pieces

A trend that has been coming strong since a couple of years ago, choosing separate pieces to make your wedding outfit. A beautiful plain satin skirt combined with a lace crop top, or for a winter wedding, you can choose a cashmere sweater and a long white skirt.

The idea of putting together your outfit gives you the freedom to create the look you want, and it also makes your wedding attire unique. A plus of conventional pieces purposed for a wedding is that you can reuse them many times.

Bridal boutiques also offer many wedding dresses that come in two pieces. So if you are thinking about a more traditional approach but with the idea of two pieces, that is also a possibility. Long-sleeved tops with lace details work wonderfully with A-line skirts. You can choose an off the shoulder style or fluffy long sleeves along with a lace skirt for a bohemian look.

Colour

The times of an obligated white dress are long gone. From subtle blush tones to bold and bright colours, there are no rules when it comes to your wedding dress. Pastels are some of the most popular tones for this year. Shades of purple, blue, and pink are just some examples of them.

Floral inspiration is also a big trend. Blush tones with flower details within the skirt and the veil are very popular. And if you are a fan of bold colours, why not having a hot pink wedding dress, or orange, perhaps even a dark shade of green.

Jumpsuits

Who says you must get married wearing a dress? Let us accept that wedding dresses look astonishing in pictures, but they are a pain to wear. All those layers of heavy fabric that you must carry around all day and figure how to dance, sit, and even go to the bathroom.

A jumpsuit is an ideal alternative to have a feminine touch with all the comfort. They look glamorous, modern, and elegant. You can choose your favourite fabric, neckline, and even the shape of the leg.

A wide-leg jumpsuit along with a lace top gives the impression of a traditional dress without wearing one. For a modern approach, choose a straight leg jumpsuit and complement it with a halter or round neckline. Add a veil or cape to finish the look.

We hope you have gathered enough inspiration to choose the right wedding dress for your big day. Remember that a wedding dress is not supposed to be a certain way. You should wear whatever makes you feel like a bride.


Small Wedding

3 benefits of planning a small wedding.

Save money or invest it where you want. 

Perhaps you want to save for your dreamed house deposit, or you want to invest or take a long vacation. Whatever reason you must cut the expenses on your wedding is valid. Some couples have no trouble setting aside a large budget, but they want to splurge their attendants with a high-quality dinner, top of the notch cocktails, and five stars service.

Organizing a small wedding does not mean you leave out services like decoration, entertainment, or catering. You can have the wedding of your dreams but on a smaller scale. Many vendors adapted to this type of weddings, and they are even specializing in small weddings.

Control the guest list. 

If you start making a guest list for a traditional sized wedding, you soon find yourself counting over a hundred attendants. And as the list goes up, everything sums; you must find a venue to fit them all, one that has enough parking, catering, decoration, table settings, and so on.

The best part of an intimate wedding is that you can leave out those you might invite out of compromise. For example, coworkers, distant relatives, and unknown plus ones. And it gives you the perfect argument to avoid uncomfortable conversations. Most people will understand why they are not being invited if it is an intimate wedding.

Share your wedding day with those who love you. 

Have you noticed that most of the time spent at a wedding goes between greeting everyone and taking pictures? All those months of planning, stressing, and money invested, to spend one-hour having fun with your friends and family.

When you only invite your nearest and dearest, there is no need for great formalities. From the beginning of your ceremony to the end of the night, your get to talk, dance, and share with people you appreciate.

As you can see, an intimate wedding is much more than saving money. It is about making meaningful decisions to have the celebration you want. Sharing one of the most important moments of your life with the people you appreciate has no comparison. We hope you are ready to start planning your intimate wedding and contact us to provide the best entertainment to create unique memories.

Why intimate weddings are here to stay.

Small and intimate weddings are a trend that made us rethink the meaning of marriage. And they have so many benefits, from saving money to giving you meaningful moments with your loved ones. If you consider an intimate wedding but are still hesitant, here are some reasons to start planning a small and unique wedding.

What is an intimate wedding?

A small wedding, micro wedding, intimate wedding, what do they all mean? Well, there is no written rule about how small an intimate wedding should be. For some couples, their nuclear family consist of 10 guest totals. Others might have even 30, so what we mean when referring to an intimate wedding is that your guest list has only your closest family and friends, whatever number that is.

Why they became a trend?

It all started due to the pandemic when couples were forced to either postpone or adapt their gatherings to a smaller format. But even after restrictions eased, we have noticed that many are choosing to keep it small. When your guest list gets smaller, you get to take control of each detail you want to.

How can you organize an entertaining intimate wedding?

Intimate weddings should not be confused with boring weddings. They are the ideal opportunity to entertain your guests and give them a touch of your personality. Here are some ideas of what you can incorporate to keep your guests engaged and entertained.

Add a photo booth for your guests and you to keep a beautiful and unique memory of your wedding day. Depending on the theme you choose for your wedding, you can hire a classic photo booth for a relaxed wedding. A Magic mirror suits perfectly a luxurious and elegant theme; with a red carpet and rope barriers, your guest will feel like celebrities. For a bohemian or rustic themed wedding, the rustic pod package will blend in like magic.

For the dancing couples and families, consider hiring a DJ. However, many feel like it is too much when you are entertaining small crowds; the reality is that a DJ can have the opportunity to engage with your guests and provide the ideal tunes to keep them dancing the entire night.

And if you want to make it more unique, add a light up dancefloor. With multiple colours and lighting options and sturdy construction, and many different sizes, you will find one that accommodates your needs.

If your small wedding location is a family property or your home, you can consider adding a Mobile bar with staff, license, and plenty of options of personalized cocktails. This option will give you the freedom to enjoy your day taking off your shoulders the responsibility of keeping your guest's drinks full.

And what is a wedding without statement decoration that doubles as an ideal photo spot for your guests? You can set up a floral wall and add a neon sign featuring your favourite phrase. Giant LED light up letters are a focal point for your wedding, and you can place them at the entrance to welcome your attendants.

Another great way to entertain your guests and give your wedding a unique theme is by adding casino tables and a magic show. Can you imagine how much fun your guests will have? Once your ceremony and dinner are over, you can head to the casino tables and have hours of sharing and playing. Not all weddings are about dancing, have it your way.
