30 of the Best Bridal Looks From the Spring 2021 Collections

By Anny Choi

If a true bridal gown isn’t your thing, there are still plenty of ready-to-wear looks to choose from come next spring. Perhaps you’ve decided on an intimate ceremony in your backyard, or don’t want to spend a fortune on a dress you’re only going to wear once. Or you could be looking for additional wardrobe pieces for the wedding weekend. Whatever the reason, we’ve gone through every single runway look from the Spring 2021 collections, so that when they hits stores next year, you’ll know exactly which pieces to buy.

We’ve broken it down by trend too, from the bridal florals to something blue, and from a beachside nuptial to a city hall wedding. While finding and ordering a wedding dress in time for the big day seems more complicated than ever right now, the current climate doesn’t mean you still can’t have a wardrobe to remember. Markarian’s take on a classic yet minimal bride is elegant as ever, while Giambattista Valli’s micro mini skirt suit is the perfect modern take on a civil ceremony look.
