2021 unique wedding dress trends for Offbeat Brides *

Y’all love your wedding separates from Sweet Caroline Styles

Did you know that we can see what y’all buy on Etsy? I mean, we can’t see who buys what, but if you click an Etsy link here on the website, we CAN see which products get purchased. This is super fun because it means we can see what’s trending with Offbeat Brides!

And when it comes to unique wedding dresses for 2021? Y’all are ON FIRE. Let’s take a look at some of the wedding dress trends that are hot AF with Offbeat Brides this year.

Before we dive in, I want to share a small note in frustration: Apologies in advance for how white-washed these dress photos are. Why do so many wedding dressmakers still only use slender young white models? CAN WE GET SOME INCLUSIVITY UP IN HERE, PEOPLE!? Jeez. Also, for those of you who aren’t planning to wear a dress and want ideas for your masc wedding suits, we gotchoo.

Now, that aside: Do you see your wedding dress here??

Trend: Bold colored separates with unexpected fabrics

Florence Skirt with a 10″ Train by sweetcarolinestyles

We’ve been loving the wedding dress separates trend for a couple years, but this shift toward a boldly colored wedding skirt, with a more traditionally white lace top? Brilliant! It’s like the mullet of wedding dresses — traditional on the top, party on the bottom! And when it comes to unexpected fabrics, can we talk about this LINEN bridal skirt? Oof, the sumptuousness.

Oh and speaking of separates, Offbeat Brides are also loving this body suit to pair with their wedding skirts:

This bodysuit from SweetCarolineStyles is made from soft cotton lace with a geometric pattern in a natural ivory tone.

Wedding dress trend: high-low tea-length

Speaking of mullets, who doesn’t love an tea-length gown with a high-low hem? This one’s lower in the back — and yes, it has pockets.

Trend: Backless with sleeves

Lace Open Back Wedding Dress with Sleeves by PolinaIvanova

Yes, it’s a little bit boho with all that lace, but I love how it’s a mix of modest with the sleeves and daring with that open back. Plus, that mermaid silhouette is WOAH.

Trend 3: Big flowy sleeves

Tassel lace wedding dress by Bibiluxe

How glorious are those tasseled long sleeves? There’s almost a tiny hint of a kimono vibe there. And then there’s these wide lacy boho sleeves on this backless dress:

Trend: Embroidered & floral wedding dresses

We are HERE FOR IT with these floral embroidered wedding gowns. Offbeat Brides are loving them both in their strapless form, as well as with sleeves. The dress below can have long sleeves or short little fluttery cap sleeves. Either way, super cute.

Trend: super affordable floaty tulle

Dude, it’s under $300 and makes you look like a dreamy snow queen who floated over the water from Arendelle. What’s not to love?

Trend: 20th Century Vintage

Our friends at BHLDN have been hard at work—during 2020—to create their brand new BHLDN spring gown line. Styles include everything from classic sleeveless spring looks, plus sizes, intricate lace details, tea-length, and full-length options. Looking through the collection, each gown is as gorgeous as the next. 

As with all their gowns, the BHLDN spring gowns will be available to shop online. As an extra special treat, these will also be available to try on in stores in January! For those folks not ready—or able—to venture back into retail stores to try on gowns, virtual appointments are available to chat with a stylist about the new gowns. BHLDN has truly thought of everything to make buying wedding gowns online easy and seamless. 

We could go on, but we’ll let these gorgeous BHLDN spring gowns do the talking.
