Modern Matrimony: 20 Cool-Girl Wedding Dresses for the 2021 Bride

Weddings are looking a little different in a post-COVID world, and to be honest…we’re here for it. Extravagant five-course affairs, 300-person guest lists, and endless layers of tulle have been replaced with higher hemlines and lower budgets in the spirit of a dressed-down “I Do’s”. But these laid-back nuptials are anything but basic, and neither are the dresses that go with them. The 2021 bride is all about unexpected elements—think slinky slip silhouettes, top-to-toe ruffles, and skin-baring cut-outs that are sure to make a statement. A tailored blazer-dress by Self Portrait is spliced with lace for the perfect city hall stunner, while Danielle Frankel’s dreamy ivory tulle trench is anything but ordinary. No matter your personal style, you’re sure to find true love in this new wave of modern cool-girl wedding dresses.
