Bridalwear trends with Blessings of Brighton

Blessings of Brighton was established in 1994 and offers wonderfully creative and attentive bridal appointments. We caught up with owner Karen Hackett to discover her top trend tips for 2021.

Blessings of Brighton is a family-run bridal boutique, established in 1994. It offers creative and attentive bridal appointments, which sadly have had to slow down during the pandemic, allowing far less brides through the door at one time and reducing the amount of dresses tried on in one day. In order to work within safety guidelines the team is asking brides to pre-select the designs they want to try prior to their appointment, which has proven to work incredibly well. This allows the consultants time to focus on the overall desired look each bride is looking to achieve for their special day. 

We caught up with owner Karen Hackett, to discover her top bridalwear trends for 2021. Read on to find out what she had to say.

"We're seeing scattered floral lace over lightweight English tulle fabrics and delicate semi-sheer bodices with cute spaghetti straps. These designs continue the nod toward the laid back and popular boho look.

"We love the simple easy-to-wear chiffon and tulle dresses with cute trimmed-lace veils. Whether they be full length or fingertip length the trims are added bespoke to echo the detail of the bridal dress, adding an individual look for our brides."

"Our new collections boast some fabulous slim silhouettes using crepe and placement of intricately beaded lace applique. Lace trains are a huge look. The lacework on our Stella York crepe dresses is stunning, creating a dramatic look while allowing the dress to be light as air."
