Our favorite trends from the Bridal Fashion Week 2021

by Linh Tran |  | 1 comment

New York Bridal Fashion Week 2021 did not disappoint, and the virtual shows proved to us that we do not have to be there in person to experience the shows in all of their glory! We are still in awe of all the beautiful designs and would love to share our top picks of bridal dress trends for our bold and savvy brides for their upcoming weddings.


What is New York Bridal Fashion Week (NYFW)?

To give a little context before going over the most stunning bridal dresses from the show, let's talk about what New York Bridal Fashion Week is. NYFW is an international event held twice a year in October and April, during which designers and brands present their latest bridal dress collections to brides, fashion-lovers, and retailers. This year's New York Bridal Fashion Week took place from April 6 to 8, 2021, and featured bridal collections for Spring 2022. During a jam-packed three-day virtual affair, legacy designers like Monique Lhullier, Marchesa, and Elie Saab (to name a few) presented—alongside smaller and younger brands. 


What are the bridal dress trends to take away from Bridal Fashion Week?


Without further ado, let's talk wedding dress trends!


Corset Bodices

A corset bodice is a combination of the bodice (or the top part of a dress) and the corset (a garment worn to create the desired shape of a small waist and to support the breasts). Due to the limitation in movement, corsets and bodices are rarely seen in female casual wear. However, the corset bodice makes a comeback this season, especially on ball gowns and wedding dresses.

In this year's fabulous fashion week, brands such as Eisen-Stein, Morilee By Madeline Gardner, and The Atelier Couture by Professor Jimmy Choo, OBE, include this design in their newest wedding dress collections. For our Dare and Dazzle's brides, this corset bodice dress is sophisticated and a show-stopper for any brides who choose to be a queen on their big day!

Florence - A touch of whimsical and chic vibes

Floral motifs

The floral bridal dress trend never goes out of style. This season, floral motifs dominated, and we found this trend absolutely breathtaking. Brands like Markarian presented mini dresses with three-dimensional floral appliqués, while others like Alyne by Rita Vinieris and Marchesa presented gowns full of florals, sequins, and beading. For our dazzling brides, check out our flower embellishment dresses below!

Caroline - Romantic, sweet, and light and is a perfect choice for a summer wedding. 

Transitional pieces

Transitional pieces particularly and transitional dressing generally have been forecasted to be a huge trend for the next few years. Instead of picking a wedding dress several months before the marriage and spending many days living in anxiety for the fear of unexpected weather, brides can go for separate pieces like bridal capes, overskirts, and removable sleeves. Pronovias Group, Justin Alexander Signature, and Alexandra Grecco, all of these bridal designers displayed different versions of these timeless pieces—perfect for brides looking for a two-in-one look.

Deep V-Necklines

The daring deep V-neckline trend is here to stay. This V-neck embraces confident brides to showcase their cheeky personalities and figure. Some of our favorite bridal designers, such as Wona Concept, Dana Harel, and GALVAN, are the ones that embraced this daring aesthetic from this year's fashion show. Check out Amelia and Tilly from our current collection if this trend speaks to you.

Amelia - A deep V-neckline and one-of-a-kind sheer V-
side cutouts
Tilly - Simple and elegant for a spring wedding in your own backyard, at a park, or a beach.

Bridal Separates (Suits)

For most brides, a wedding gown is a must-have. On the other hand, many brides these days feel more confident in suits. Celebrities like Millie Mackintosh and Laura Whitmore have recently ditched the bridal dress and rocked suit trend, and it is an absolutely fantastic idea for unconventional brides. At Dare and Dazzle, we adore the concept of non-traditional bridalwear—especially the suit or bridal separates.
