Dropped Waistline Wedding Dress Inspiration

Dropped Waistline Wedding Dress Inspiration

Dropped waistlines are popular in wedding dresses because they accentuate the bride’s waist and hips, while still allowing them to enjoy the effortless beauty of a traditional bridal gown.

This feature is especially popular among A-line skirts, ball gowns, and more vintage style designs. We love the Victorian feelings that a dropped waistline can create and how you can easily embed that entire idea into the theme of the wedding.

Here are 6 wedding dresses that will make you fall in love with dropped waist gowns.

Lazaro, Madrid

This stunning Lazaro gown features yards upon yards of ivory organza folded into its fluffy skirt. It’s from the Tara Keely line and features that stunning, dropped waist and sweetheart neckline.

It’s a show stopping moment for brides that have always dreamt of their fairytale wedding day and “princess” moment. It’s youthful and we are loving the ways in which you can personalize – from pastel pumps to a sparkling belt.

We envision this beauty on a snowy winter’s night or even topping off a floral-filled springtime event.

Maggie Sottero, Carina

With any Maggie Sottero gown, you know that lots of thought has been put in to create something gorgeous and elegant.

There’s a lot of visual interest happening within this design. The Carina features a classic, dropped waistline, intricate beading, asymmetry, and a gorgeous, flowing skirt.

Swarovski crystals are hand sewn into the detailing making sure you are shimmering as you walk down the aisle, and there’s a corset closure and a bow accent highlighting the curves of the silhouette.

This Maggie Sottero gown is a more classic and traditional style, but that is where a lot of the wedding world seems to be heading back to as of late.

This fun and flirty Casablanca gown has a dropped waist, but with the added benefit of crystal embellishments at the natural waist to really accentuate your figure.

We love the youthful spirit of the skirt and the feminine detailing on the bodice. It’s a party within the very design!

The gown comes in a variety of sizes, making it super accessible, and also a variety of color combinations including ivory and blush as well as champagne and silver.

Lace, beading, and waves of chiffon make this Ian Stuart dress a mix of bridal elements that is both classic and eclectic. There’s fun and traditionalism quite literally sewn into the design.

The dropped waist and asymmetry give your curves the accentuation you’re looking for and the beaded lace is a stunner in photographs. The organza and taffeta work together to create wearable art.

This too comes in color variations that are absolutely stunning including all ivory, ivory with metallic, and honey with ivory.

Vera Wang, Fernanda

The simple and clean details on this ball gown put a modern spin on a timeless silhouette. There’s a plunge to the neckline and you can accessorize so easily to your liking by adding a variety of ribbon waists or belts to the ensemble.

The train is dramatic and long, and the pure white color sets the tone for a traditional and classic affair. We love the modernity of the design and how timeless this can be for your family.

We love that you can also add sleeves to the dress. It’s just as chic and classic as before but may be more comfortable and appropriate for the season or location of the event.

A classic ball gown with a pop of blushing tones, we are loving this design from Martina Liana. It’s so feminine and romantic with all the right kinds of details – from the dropped waistline to the layers and layers of voluminous tulle.

The design also features some gorgeous sequins and 3D flowers that are absolutely stunning in photographs. It comes in plus-sizes for more accessibility and if you want to stay away from the non-traditional colors, you have your option of ivory as well.

It’s a zip-up closure for ultimate comfort but covered with crystal buttons that you will adore. There’s a slight train as well for the complete bridal feel.
