If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we can adjust our expectations and ideals a little bit to make the best out of certain obstacles that come our way. Pandemics can’t stop love—or weddings! You might still be forging ahead for this year, or planning your post-COVID big day for 2022 and beyond. Regardless, a little white dress is the perfect twist to complement the more relaxed trends we’re seeing in fashion!
An illusion-plunging neckline, juxtaposed with a fuller princess skirt on this Watters WTOO wedding dress is both sweet and spicy. With long sleeves, you might want to reserve it for cooler weather and/or minimal dancing. But it’s bound to take your breath away, either way! The fitted mesh bodice and gorgeous tulle skirt are a love affair that could rival your own.
An embroidered V-neck jumpsuit is super chic and cool for a wedding in any season. It also suits a wide range of brides—from the not-so-girly to the fashion-forward. This David’s Bridal one-piece number will effortlessly take you through your entire big day. There’s also no fuss for the ceremony (that some gowns may cause), and no need to worry about wardrobe malfunctions!
For an awesomely comfortable or comfortably awesome option, this easy beaded mini dress from Forever That Girl at BHLDN is a winner! It’s swingy with a throwback vibe that pairs well with practically any accessories. Bonus: It can even hide a little bloat if you plan on enjoying lots of dessert and champagne at your wedding—or accommodate a baby bump if you’re expecting!
This cotton and tulle stunner from The Cotton Bride is the quintessential bridal look, just cut shorter. With a sweetheart neckline, A-line skirt, and defined waist, the flattering shape and beautiful details of this LWD are big hits! It’s the perfect option to style with traditional or funky shoes and a bomber jacket—from the vows to the photos to when you dance the night away.
Needle & Thread in general combines all the ultra-feminine elements, like beading, embroidery and tulle, to make for dreamy wearable confections. And if there’s one occasion on which you can throw every lovable detail into one dress, it’s your wedding! The added pop of color on this champagne mini will make your partner, guests—and you—swoon (without any silk).
