Dress Silhouette Feature – The Trumpet Wedding Dress

Dress Silhouette Feature - The Trumpet Wedding Dress

If you’re looking for a gown that’s definitely figure-flattering then the trumpet wedding dress is for you. The options are endless whether you’re wanting something feminine and romantic or sexy glam.

This silhouette is very similar to other wedding dress silhouettes, so let’s break it down a little further.

What is a Trumpet Wedding Dress?

Trumpet wedding dresses are often confused with a fit-and-flare or mermaid gown, but the key difference is where the skirt begins to flare out.

A trumpet gown is fitted through your torso and hips and then flares out at the thigh to elongate the legs. It’s the perfect solution for a shorter, petite bride that wants to look taller!

The great news is that trumpet gowns come in a variety of fabrics and can have as much or as little embellishment as you want. It’s really a versatile silhouette for any type of bride. Check out some of our favorite styles below.

We’re starting our list with this stunning Desire gown by Ines Di Santo, and it is a total dream.

From the Fall 2021 collection, this dramatic trumpet gown features a plunging v-neck with a signature low back and an elegant train.

Desire is giving us sexy-glam vibes with lace details, a sheer illusion bodice and a frothy tulle skirt.

We can picture this amazing gown gliding down the beach or at a fairytale garden affair.

Your curves will absolutely be front and center with this Enzoani creation. The romantic Avignon wedding dress has so much detail that all eyes will be on you as you walk down the aisle.

A plunging v-neck leads the top of the gown followed by illusion side paneling on the bodice and nude cutouts along the modern crepe skirt.

The baroque lace really stands out on this gown, especially on the detachable long sleeves. A signature double sculpted train finishes this stunning look.

3. D3340 – Essense of Australia

For an extra-sophisticated wedding-day look, this D3340 style by Esssense of Australia is amazing. It’s very Hollywood glam, if you’re hosting a fabulous red-carpet-esque affair.

This gown is all about the shape and structure versus having a lot of embellishments. A pointed sweetheart neckline leads the strapless wedding gown. We love the ruched effect on the bodice for a modern twist.

The skirt is flirty and full of volume, without being overpowering, with buttons trailing at the hem. Bonus: this gown is curve-friendly and available in plus size!

4. Lyria – Rue De Seine

With the boho bride in mind, the Lyria gown is ultra chic. We love how flattering and effortless the trumpet silhouette is here with a more relaxed skirt and dreamy train.

The details on this dress are simply amazing: the organic rayon embroidery is lined in a clay color that allows it to pop with the all-over lace detailing. The open back, which you can only get a peek of in this photo, is beautiful as well.

5. Simone – Marchesa Notte

If you’re into couture designs, this Marchesa Notte gown is a winner. The designer is known for exquisite construction, and the Simone wedding dress is no exception.

This trumpet gown is giving off romantic princess vibes with an off-the-shoulder neckline (for a hint of sexy) and soft tulle skirt. The lace applique is delicately placed all over the gown and is super elegant. It’s definitely a timeless look for a more modern silhouette.
