Peta Hunt’s Top Trends for 2021 Bridal Fashion

The Trend Hunt

From timeless looks which have stood the test of time donned by icons such as Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton, to boho brides throwing their own personality into the mix, bridal industry titan Peta Hunt has seen it all.

She shares her predictions of what exciting bridal trends to expect next season, while urging brides to stay true to themselves…


Verette Gown, Pronovias

Statement sleeves are not only practical and stylish, but they’re going to be the big new trend. Think big, billowy and puffy, or super cute short styles.

Pair it with…
Tropical Leaf Earrings, Swarovski


Dylan, Badgley Mischka

Move over flowers, bows are THE statement feature for next season. We love a big bow on the back and a small one around the neckline, or how about on the shoulder?

Pair it with…
Elysee Shoes, Sophia Webster


Sophie, Dana Harel

Next season sees plenty of different necklines – channel your inner Grace Kelly with a halter neck number, or seek out the sass with a plunging v neck – deftly finished with a statement tiara.

Pair it with…
Vintage Lace Tiara, Ivory & Co, John Lewis


Louveciennes, Elysee Atelier

The eternal romantic fabric – but forget fusty old Miss Havisham dresses. This year’s lace has never been so stylish, and with such a variety, from the traditional to ultramodern beach bride, the options are endless.

Pair it with…
Bygone Charm Hair Clip, Glitzy Secrets

Capes and Coats

Rian, Pronovias

For a winter wedding or a touch of drama, who can’t resist a cape? It’s a great alternative to a veil if you don’t feel up to one.

Pair it with…
Brilliante Heels, Dune London


Justin Alexander Signature

Corset tops can be really flattering, providing you have a good strapless bra. Why not wear a lace body underneath for the ceremony, and go strapless for the party to get that two-in-one look?

Pair it with…
Aphrodite Earrings, Olivia and Pearl

Low Back

Porter, Enzoani

Back details and low plunging backs seem to be far more available this year. Your back is on show for a long time during the ceremony, so if you’ve got a good one, make sure you find a dress that flaunts it.

Pair it with…
Sorrel Headband, Dune

Ruffles and Tulle

Chazelle, Pronovias

The perfect fairytale look. If you don’t want a huge puffball of a skirt why not go for a fishtail with a sleek body and an explosion of ruffles?

Pair it with…
Botanical Necklace, Swarovski


Temple, Pronovias

Big events demand a big dress! Modern ballgowns are light and should never drag you down, just make sure you don’t sweep your guests out of the way.

Pair it with…
Grandeur Tiara, Halo & Co


Tatum, Justin Alexander

For the bride who knows exactly who she is. Look out for sleek dresses in crepe, trouser suits and jumpsuits, or how about going short? Wear whatever you’re comfortable in – this is your moment.

Pair it with…
Parkling Earrings, Swarowski
