Lockdown Wedding Dress Trends

Covid-19 has caused a brief hiatus on weddings, but there is an excitement gearing up for the wedding season as lockdown restrictions ease. The restrictions on the wedding should be lifted completely from the 21st of June. It’s time to start the wedding preparations!

Deciding on what to wear to a wedding is not always easy. We have put together a few lockdown wedding dress trends suitable for; bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and wedding guests. With our exquisite collection, you will rock the wedding with style! The Ariella brand got you covered.

One Shoulder Maxi Dress – Black Tie/ Formal Wedding

An extensive glamorous gown will always be suitable for a formal or black-tie wedding. You do not want to be at a wedding looking underdressed. Even though the bride will be the centre of attention, you will also want to look your best. And with this exquisite Lexili one-shoulder maxi dress, you will rock the day. This dress features an asymmetric neckline, a front split skirt with an embroidered tulle train that adds drama to the gown. 

Halter Knee Length Dress – Cocktail Wedding

The Gianna halter chiffon dress is one of the dresses you should consider getting if you are browsing for a cocktail-style lockdown wedding guest dress.

The Gianna dress comes in pink, mint, and navy colour. It features two embellished straps, a V front keyhole shape, a ruched waistband, and a knee-length skirt. Nara navy floral printed dress or Amandine pink & silver beaded top overlay knee-length dress will also be perfect for a cocktail wedding.

Chiffon Dress – Casual Wedding

At a casual wedding, you are not limited when it comes to choosing what to wear and can go for a more dressed-down look if you choose to. But as this is still a special occasion, you will need something that looks elegant and beautiful. Tahira blue floral printed chiffon fit and frill knee-length dress might just be the one!

High-Low Dress – Beach Wedding

For beach weddings, opt for breathable fabrics with lighter colours. You should always dress to impress, but if the wedding is actually on the beach, you might want to consider the sun, water, and sand when picking a dress. For that elegant and relaxed movement, the Nami halter double-layer high-low dress will be perfect. It features a halter neckline with a sheer under bodice and a high low double layer skirt. The Nami dress also has a necktie which can be tied into a bow. For the sun and the chilly night, this matches perfectly with the Saffa shawl. The Summer print purple dress will also be great for a beach wedding.
