Each season, top designers in bridal couture offer their interpretation of nuptial fashion. From embellished ballgowns to polished pantsuits, their exclusive designs offer something for every kind of bride. In their 2021 Fall/Winter bridal collections, designers offer corseted silhouettes and floral detailing. Many make nods to natural beauty while putting a contemporary twist on timeless styles. Among the many impressive gowns, we chose our favorite standout designs for some fashion-forward inspiration.

Each gown in Ines Di Santo’s Fall 2021 collection shares a story of romance and meaning. The playful ball gown dubbed “Embrace” offers textured 3D floral detailing and feminine off-shoulder sleeves. On the opposite spectrum, the sophisticated “Smitten” features a square neckline and a detachable cape.

Zuhair Murad channels three distinct feminine presences in their Fall 2021 bridal collection. Ranging from daring to free-spirited, Murad offers nuptial splendor in off-white shades and sparkling embellishments. We are particularly fond of this contemporary gown featuring symmetrical tulle trim and artful details.

Paying homage to the prima donnas of ABBA, Galia Lahav named their Fall/ Winter 2021 collection “Dancing Queen.” Celebrating both unbound freedom and resplendent elegance, each gown in the collection features flowing figures reminiscent of ballerinas. The line pays particular attention to bodices, including this corseted gown carefully beaded with floral designs. 

In their Fall 2021 collection, designer Christos Costarellos reinterprets feminine elegance with layers of lace and satin. From sweeping necklines to collared bodices, the collection exudes timeless style with a modern flair. The many shapes and designs offer something for every bride. Among our favorites are a belted lace gown and a silk trumpet-style garment.

Markarian’s “Aurora” is a delicate ensemble of floral lace and a two-tiered skirt. Sheer shoulder-capped sleeves attach to the structured bodice, offering a flirtatious feel to the elegant silhouette. Both timeless and sophisticated, the empire waist speaks to the classic bride. 

Marchesa’s Fall 2021 collection is playful, romantic and statement-worthy. Featuring twirl-worthy skirts and embellished veils, each gown in the collection celebrates bridal beauty. We love every style in the line, but particularly a sleeved gown with a sheer neckline and floral detailing. Of course, we had to mention a classic ball gown with a feathered skirt.

Sareh Nouri looks to 1920s style and romance in her autumn collection. Featuring applique lace and silk hand draping, each gown offers timeless grace. Among our favorites is “Margorie,” a soft trumpet gown with overskirt detail worthy of royalty. The square neckline and lace detailing are perfect for brides seeking age-old appeal. 

In their Fall/Winter 2021 bridal line, Viktor&Rolf offers an array of airy silhouettes and sculpted garments. For brides seeking a sleek pantsuit, the Royal Jewel Jumpsuit is a standout option. Featuring an embellished collar and a low-cut open back, the sleeveless jumpsuit is chic yet feminine. We also had to mention the eco-friendly gown “Taffeta Volant Dream.”  With a voluminous tiered skirt and fitted bodice, it’s a modern interpretation of the classic ball gown.
