From beaded and crystal embellished beauties to dresses that exude an effortlessly romantic vibe, to chic minimalist dresses perfect for a virtual affair, wedding dress trends 2021 include some of the most diverse styles we have ever seen. While we’re waiting this fall for more designers to showcase their new collections before we do our trend report (due to Covid-19, few designers were able to show virtually last April), we’ve rounded up some of our favorite weddings so far. No matter how you’re celebrating your special day, whether you’ve postponed due to CDC regulations or planning a smaller-scale ceremony next year, these 20 wedding dresses are sure to get you excited for your upcoming wedding.
