If ever there's a time to indulge your inner hopeless romantic, your wedding day is it—and it doesn't get more romantic than this frilly, ultra-feminine detail.

How to choose a wedding dress that’s right for you

So now that you’re all clued up on the incoming wedding dress trends for 2021, how do you go about finding ‘the one’ that’s right for you?

Start early

Some brides underestimate just how early they need to begin shopping for a wedding dress. Ideally, you’ll want to be getting into boutiques around 9 to 12 months before your big day. This is to allow adequate time for your dress to be ordered in and for any alterations you may need to have made. It helps if you have already booked your wedding venue too, as this will likely influence the kind of dress you decide on.

Gather inspo

Instagram, Pinterest, real weddings… there are loads of places you can gather inspiration for your dream dress. It’s best to keep any images in one place, i.e on a Pinterest board, Instagram Archive or in designated folder in your phone’s camera roll. Once you’ve added a wide selection of dresses you can begin the eliminating process to get a clearer idea of what you like.

Know what you like and what you don’t

Here’s where a good old fashioned list comes in handy! While gathering inspo, jot down what you like as you go, and make a note of what’s a big no no. The clearer you are on the type of dress you want, the easier it’ll be to communicate that to your shop assistant when you go to a boutique.

Don’t bring everyone you know

The saying ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’ could also apply to wedding dress shopping. Too many opinions can be overwhelming for a bride and turn dress shopping into a negative experience. Bring along a small selection of people who know and love you and will gently give you their honest opinions.

We've looked to the latest bridal, ready-to-wear, and Haute Couture collections to help you navigate your wedding wardrobe for next year's nuptials. From new silhouettes to fresh takes on color and trends past, consider this the fashion bride's guide to dressing for 2021 weddings.

With so much technology available to help simplify the wedding-planning process, it is often a foregone conclusion that every couple will create a wedding website. However, not everyone wants to publish their nuptial details for everyone to read. We dive into the issue and weigh in on whether or not you need to create a wedding website and what to consider.

So if most people you know have an email account and are checking their computers, smartphones or tablets as often as it seems, it kind of makes sense to create your own wedding website.

A personal wedding website is a website created by an engaged couple. Its primary purpose is to act as a central hub for your guests to access information about your wedding day or weekend. Typically, wedding websites include details on the date, location, travel plans, and even the dress code for your wedding. Modern updates to these websites—like tracking RSVPs—are also backend tools that can aid in the planning process.

Creating a space online and sharing the URL on your save the date cards and wedding invitations is a definite must for any 21st-century couple who wants to make putting together their big day just a little bit easier.

Wedding resources like the Knot, WeddingWire and Zola allow couples to create personalized web pages for free. Their standard templates are easy to use
