Keep reading to brush up on the biggest evening dress trends for weddings in 2021…

Two-Piece Ensembles

The two piece has come into its own, just in time for wedding season this year! Look for pretty pastel toned two pieces for a gentle and feminine take on the strong, reimagined dress silhouette. This one is fantastic for weddings that are set on sweltering hot days or for more casual beachy affairs. Be sure to opt for a more luxurious material such as silk or satin to keep with the formal expectations that any wedding is naturally going to put out there. Keep hair, makeup and accessories simple to let the striking strength of your two piece gown really shine.

Millennial Purple

You’ve heard of millennial pink, right? Well think of lilac as it’s new, cooler younger sister. Millennial purple is absolutely everywhere right now, and it makes the perfect pretty and polished shade for your next evening dress purchase! Look for a floaty tulle style in a princess feel A-line cut to stand out from the crowd at your upcoming wedding. This goes beautifully with really delicate accents such as pearl jewellery, satin shoes and dainty accessories. Keep your makeup fresh and soft to blend with the gorgeous tone of your very on trend frock.

Intricate Beading

Beading is back and in a big way! Look for intricately beaded dresses in column and sheath cuts for a striking nod to the 90s at your upcoming wedding. You can let the textures of your beaded piece really shimmer, shine and catch the light by opting for a more muted neutral and keeping everything else in your ensemble very subtle and pared back. Throw your hair into an up style, keep makeup simple and only pick matte neutral accessories to let the beaded dress do the talking. This is brilliant if you’re looking for a romantic and unique take on formal wedding guest attire.

Shimmering Sequins

Speaking of shimmering! Sequins are quickly becoming a modern classic, so why not jump on that very stylish bandwagon and bag yourself a stunning sequin frock? You can invest knowing that you have a ticket to feeling utterly fabulous in your wardrobe, ready for whenever you need it – no more panicking about what to wear to that big glam event creeping up on your calendar! Look for gold or silver to keep things classic, again you’ll want to stick to the more minimal side of styling to avoid overpowering your already very strong and striking dress.

One Shoulder Stunner

The asymmetrical neckline is one the biggest trends of the season. A one shoulder evening gown is going to look awesome for any contemporary wedding. You’ll really stand out and look beautifully individual! Sweep your hair to one side, keep accessories to a minimum and let that silhouette do all the work for you.

Go For Gold

Think sunny goddess bronze when you’re looking to style a gold dress for a wedding in 2021. Look for antiqued gold accessories to avoid look gauche or gaudy in the photos. This is particularly beautiful for summer weddings.
