Current affairs and news often play a part in fashion trends, however the coronavrius pandemic has completely transformed and determind trends for 2021. Flipping the wedding industry on its head with the postponement of weddings and limited guest numbers, many couples have decided to host small, private celebrations with brides choosing relaxed big day style. 

Hannah Ollichon, the Founder and Designer for London-based House of Ollichon - who specialise in luxury bridal jumpsuits and two-pieces - said: "As we head into a year of renewal, (hopefully putting 2020 firmly behind us) weddings start to creep back onto the horizon and with it a whole new world of celebration styles. 

"Couples have heartbreakingly postponed their weddings if not once, twice. New engaged couples haven't allowed themselves to think about planning a wedding and those who were toying with the idea of putting a ring on it, didn't even dare. With the new year comes a feeling of defiance; I will marry my loved one no matter what. 

"We have no idea how long the 15-person wedding will exist for, it may evolve into a 30-50 person gathering mid-next year but one thing's for sure, for the foreseeable future the 250 people knees up abroad is a risky business."

From June 2019 to June 2020, there was a 115% increase in the number of people searching for garden wedding inspiration. Spurred on further by the coronavirus pandemic, more couples are opting for outdoor wedding ceremonies with lower costs, beautiful settings and a wide choice of locations - which is predicted to continue into 2021 style. 

"For years, couples had been stripping back on decadent weddings preferring pub and garden celebrations, registry office ceremonies and festival weddings," says Hannah. "This trend will now only grow exponentially as we look to seal the deal closer to home and with smaller groups of those who truly matter. Needless to say, this naturally banishes the big meringue look as brides veer towards a more relaxed style. 

"The bridal jumpsuit had firmly stamped its mark in fashion forward bridal attire and once again we predict a high increase of those brides who wear the trousers. Separates will continue to offer that wonderful compromise between tradition and contemporary and alongside this, we are sure the bridal industry will see yet another dollop of individuality expressed through quirky fabrics, out-there accessories, massive sleeves, an injection of colour, futuristic capes and bonkers shoes."
