Let’s talk about one of the biggest trends in bridal fashion right now—the cottagecore wedding dress! This highly romantic, bohemian aesthetic is here to stay for 2021 and 2022. A quick lesson—cottagecore refers to an ethereal, romantic, simplistic “cottage” lifestyle (think baking bread, picking flowers, homemade crafts, antique home décor, tending to your garden, and sunset picnics).
This trend manifests into bridal fashion through floral lace, whimsical skirts, hues of ivory and soft blush, flattering necklines, lightweight fabrications, and vintage-inspired details. We have lots of cottagecore wedding dresses to choose from. Scroll on to make all your cottagecore dreams come true!
