The Top Wedding Dress Trends of 2021

The 2020 year was rough for most people, for many reasons, and, Brides were no exception. Planning a wedding is no small undertaking. Some couples take anywhere from 10 months to 2 years constructing and finalizing all the details for the big day, so, undoubtedly, forced cancellation and postponement was heartbreaking.

A recent survey by The Knot among U.S. couples who originally planned their weddings for March through August 2020 found that 52% pushed their celebrations to a later date in the year, while 33% rescheduled to 2021 and 14% are still unsure of a new wedding date.

But guess what!? We made it! The much-anticipated year of 2021 has finally arrived! From weddings that were rescheduled to 2021 and ones originally planned for 2021 to the brand new Brides that are just beginning to plan – it’s starting to get back on track and not a moment too soon!

So, let’s dive in and help you get those creative juices flowing as we reveal the most talked about wedding fashion for 2021!

Brave & Bold

This year is all about bolder wedding fashion. Brides are feeling braver than ever with their choices and free to really express themselves on their wedding day. Many are making their statement with ball gowns, exaggerated sleeves, layers of textures, romantic ruffles, edgy jumpsuits and capes!

  1. Short Dresses
  2. Cape Veils

Kathryn Wen told Fashionista.com, “Brides are expressing themselves through more adventurous, seize-the-day approaches: “We have a lot more interest in color. Still the light blue, gray and blush ranges, but we’ve had people who’ve done mustard or burgundy. A little bit ‘out there’ colors.” 

Personal Style & Versatility

Lace, bows, feathers, beading, sequins, pleats, rhinestones, and pearls – OH MY!
Embellishments are dominating this year and should not be overlooked!
Here’s a couple reasons why –

  • It’s the small details that will take a wedding dress you love to the next level and transform it into something that’s unique and personal to you. 
  • Don’t stop at the dress… Embellishments can be added to veils, capes and shawls, matching couples’ jackets, and on the newly-trending hair accessory: barrettes and combs.
  • Brides want the option to switch up their looks – overskirts, capes and embellished top layers are more popular than ever.

In an effort to have a more sustainable dress, we are seeing Brides even design their own wedding gown or transforming an old one into the dress of their dreams! The possibilities are truly endless.

In fact, Treasured Garment Restoration specializes in bringing Vintage Wedding Gowns back to life. We clean and restore vintage wedding gowns, and work with you to add your own modern twist and match the dress to your unique style!

Award-Winning Cleaning, Preservation and Alterations

A wedding may only last a day but the memories and heirlooms last a lifetime, and sometimes even generations to come. That’s why Treasured Garment Restoration handles each dress individually with care- and why couples are raving about our services.

Treasured Garment Restoration just won The Knot Best Of Weddings 2020. The award represents “the highest-and most-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples.” Only five-percent of wedding professionals received this award in 2020 and we’re honored that couples chose us! When we preserve a wedding dress it’s cleaned individually, treated with an anti-sugar rinse to get rid of any invisible stains that could appear after time and wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and box, guaranteed to last a lifetime.

With the purchasing of sample gowns on the rise, we also clean and press wedding gowns before they go down the aisle. We’ll clean the gown to make it look like new again and steam press it so it looks effortlessly stunning on the bride. Another wedding planning site, WeddingWire, recently rewarded us the Couples’ Choice Award for 2020, recognizing our commitment to quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Whether it’s before or after a wedding, we handle gowns with the upmost care.

Treasured Garment Restoration also has an award-winning alterations department. We recently received the Mpls St Paul Weddings coveted 2019 Diamond Award for Best Bridal Alterations.

One judge for the magazine said “The manner in which they can completely transform old-fashioned gowns into modern creations is astounding.”

Our alterations department can alter any hem all the way to designing a dress from scratch. We can reconstruct a family member’s old wedding dress into an updated style or use parts of an old dress to incorporate it into your modern gown.
