Capes are back! 2021 sees wedding dresses with delicate capes cascading down from the bride's shoulders. Whether they're the same fabric as the dress or made of a sheer lace, capes are the new train.

2. Ruffles Galore

No modest ruffles for the 2021 bride. The more the better when it comes to ruffles this year. They aren't just for the skirt, either. If you're feeling bold, pick a wedding dress with large ruffles all-over.

3. Bold Prints

While white wedding dresses will always have a place no matter the year, there's a shift in 2021 for color. If you're a unique bride, go for bold prints. Colorful skirts with floral, geometric, or abstract prints are all the rage right now.

4. Short Dresses

Let's face it: Wedding dresses with huge, cascading skirts can be hot, heavy, and uncomfortable. In 2021, we're seeing a trend toward short wedding dresses. They're perfect for any wedding but are especially great for tropical or outdoor summer weddings.
