9 Wedding Trends That Will Be Everywhere This Summer
With wedding season heating up, summer brides that are comfortable having weddings will soon be strutting down the aisle for their big day. While there are so many different types of brides and styles that we love, some trends just dominate across all weddings. To kick off the summer and wedding season, we turned to Brooklyn-based wedding dress designer Rebecca Schoneveld for all the top summer 2021 wedding trends, from wedding dresses to accessories to hair. Scroll on to see what she predicted would be the top wedding looks of the season. A word of caution, though, you will want to pin *all* of these to your not-so-secret wedding pinboard.
1. Corset Gowns
Corsets have been taking over the fashion world, including bridal style! You can keep that sophisticated bridal style with the added texture of a corset top. With the off the shoulder straps and lace-up detail, it's an unexpected choice that's still super classy. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
2. Lace Wedding Dresses
Lacy dresses have been around since the turn of the century, but designers are continuing to find ways to make them look brand new. The semi sheer look, slit, and strappy silhouette add a modern edge. Plus it has pockets! (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
3. Open Backs
Summer brides don't normally need to worry about it being too cold, so it's the perfect time to show a little more skin. A plunging neckline can be fashion forward and very flattering, but open backs or sides are where it's at this season. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
4. Monochromatic Texture
What this trend may lack in color, it makes up for in appliqués, embroidery, and more. It's perfect for turning heads, but it won't clash with the decor, no matter your color palette. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
5. Puff Sleeves
This dress is perfect for any bride who wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day. The asymmetrical pleats and leaf fabric design are great for gals who want to keep things romantic and chic at the same time. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
6. Delicate Hair Accessories
Hair accessories aren't just limited to spring music festivals. We've seen tiaras, headbands, and decorated clips incorporated into wedding looks this year. Keep things simple by adding all the jewelry to one side of your 'do, but feel free to mix up pattern. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
7. Simple Dresses + Statement Veils
With lots of brides opting for low-key dress designs, long and intricate veils are making a comeback. Decorated veils (like this starry one) are a fantastic way to add detail to your look without having to deal with a variety of other accessories. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
8. Sheer Bodices
Embroidered floral bodices might be a bit out of your comfort zone, but with padding in the bust area and plunging sides, it's a classy and modern choice for any bride. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
9. Minimalist Everything
Minimalism has been a lifestyle trend lately, and we predict that beautifully simple gowns will be new go-tos for brides. We love this tiered skirt and cinched bodice for any and all weddings this summer. (via Rebecca Schoneveld)
Whether you love ballgowns or you're more of a minimalist, these wedding dresses are the perfect way to turn heads on your big day. After a year without much celebration, 2021 weddings are going to be a great time!
