During these rare and unprecedented times, so many brides are left scrambling, wondering whether or not it makes sense to postpone their weddings or elope. Should they cancel their wedding-dress appointments or rather schedule a virtual one? There is no denying the fact that social distancing will remain the norm for a while, and the idea of a wedding dress (a big, important detail for a lot of brides!) may remain just that, for now: an idea.
"A wedding stands for hope and trust. Two values we need now."
Some fashion houses have decided to present an extended 2021 collection in October, forgoing the release of a Spring 2021 lineup altogether. But others are slowly providing assets for looks to come sometime soon, because dreaming is still doable.
"In this difficult time we think it's important to dream. A wedding stands for hope and trust. Two values we need now," Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren stated in their press release for the Viktor & Rolf Spring 2021 Mariage gowns, which are inspired by classical gardens.
We're the first to agree that a wedding ceremony is a symbol of marriage, and the marriage itself is what sticks - dresses, flowers, shoes, and cakes, these are all just details. Just the comfort of knowing that your partner will be there down the line might allow you to open your mind to the idea of dreaming about the little things - and a wedding dress is a fine place to start.
While we have yet to see more gowns that will be released next year, here are the ones inspiring our vision as the days go on.
