Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the year 2020 was marked by dramatic restrictions, resulting in a drastic change in trends for parties and wedding ceremonies. Thus, we saw a rise in wedding elopements, mini events, and small celebrations that have helped to re-signify the big day. But if you thought the concept of a "small" wedding was a newfangled idea limited to 2020, you'd be kidding yourself.

Another important change in the bridal dress market is that brides are increasingly more aware about global issues while shopping. “Brides are more concerned than ever about the entire production chain that involves the fabrics and other materials used in the production of the wedding dress,” she says.
