Peplum details don’t have to fall right on the waist either. Just take a look at the “Wonderful” design from White One Bridal – with a peplum accent that drops within the mermaid silhouette.

This gown is so unique with all its distinct details including a detachable tulle skirt – which turns the gown from a ceremony to a party in a moment’s notice, satin Mikado, embroidered floral appliques, and a gorgeous illusion back as well.

It’s such an innovation in terms of fashion design and we’re here for the celebration! Pair with a long veil for the gown and then leave the short satin piece for the reception!

Casablanca, 1766

And sometimes peplum details can be on the more subtle side of the aisle. The 1766 design from Casablanca showcases exactly what we mean by that.

This traditional gown is highlighted by a corset bodice, A-line skirt, overlapping peplum, and some sparkling detailing on the bodice. You can pair with any and all accessories of your choice to complete the look as there’s room for them!

For those creating a more classic wedding, this is the type of gown that can finish out the night or even spark all of the needed inspiration.

Amsale, Demi

This is one of Amsale’s go-to wedding gown designs – it became an instant classic when it hit the scene and it included a back peplum to finish its illusion detail in the most feminine of ways.

Overall, the dress features a light, crepe skirt, sleek train, sheer illusion back, covered buttons, and a stretch tulle. The gown is made with a fit-and-flare silhouette that cascades over the body quite beautifully.

A modern or classic updo would be the perfect match with this gown as you don’t want to take anything away from the back details. Chic and elegant is the vision for the overall finished look here.

Allison Webb, Tiffany

Allison Webb designs are described as “elevated elegance” and this gown is no exception. The Tiffany is dipped in blue (it also comes in a traditional white shade) and filled with layers of English net.

The peplum is detachable – which we love for giving different looks throughout the event. And it features some of the best, classic bridal accents including a natural waistline, soft scoop neckline, and a semi-sheer bodice.

What really takes this over-the-top is the “tidal blue” shade, but why not go a more non-traditional route for those wanting to make an actual splash down the aisle?

Jenny Yoo, Valentina

How stunning is this ethereal and romantic ball gown from Jenny Yoo? Valentina has a flowing, soft double peplum accent that adds volume and lush appeal to the skirt!

The design also features a sheer illusion body, lace sleeves, bold Chloe lace handmade in France, an organza ball skirt, covered buttons, and piping finishes on the waist.

It is important to note that ordering the dress without the peplum detail is an option but we love how it adds an air of uniqueness and extra romance within your walk. Add a sheer veil to finish the ensemble.

Anthropologie, Violet

And then we have the spunky and from Violet dress from Anthropologie. The vibes of this design are immaculate – especially if you’re channeling Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl.

The ruffles add a hint of femininity, whereas the body-skimming silhouette adds the sex appeal you’re looking for. The design also features a bustier-style bodice with boning, adjustable ruffled cap sleeves, ruffled peplum at the waist, and a gorgeous fabric that mimics jacquard.

It’s a great gown to go with destination celebrations, receptions, second time brides, or even elopement ceremonies – just add a birdcage veil.
