Trumpet Wedding Dress

Trumpet wedding dresses are often confused with fit-n-flare and mermaid styles. The latter flare out from below the hip and knee respectively, while the skirt on a trumpet wedding dress flares dramatically from the mid-thigh.

While the figure-hugging trumpet wedding gown style may not offer quite as much mobility as the fit-n-flare there’s certainly more scope for manoeuvre than in a mermaid gown.

The close fit of a trumpet dress makes this style perfect to flaunt an hourglass figure or balance out brides with a bigger bust, while women with more apple-shaped silhouettes may find it too constricting. It’s always best to try on a variety of wedding dress styles so that you can find the best design for your body - we’re all different, after all!

Trumpet wedding dresses can feature trains of any length, making this a classic and elegant choice for a church wedding. This unique and mesmerizing Tara Keeley by Lazaro rose gold glitter-encrusted sparkle trumpet bridal gown kills two birds with one stone thanks to a detachable Watteau chapel train, enabling bridez to dazzle down the aisle before dancing the night away without a train to carry around.

For something a little more relaxed the floating lace detail on this Allure Bridals trumpet gown with an illusion neckline would make a breathtaking choice for a spring wedding.

If the trumpet dress is the style for you then, regardless of which dress you choose, the focal point of the dramatic skirt will ensure that your entrance is an undeniable show-stopper.
