Peplums are absolutely everywhere at the moment and are definitely a strong presence in bridal trends. I find that some people love them, and some hate them, there isn’t much middle ground. If you aren’t sure what a peplum is (such a funny word!), it is a flare or ruffle at the waist of the jacket, blouse, dress or skirt, which are amazing for defining the waist and can be really structured or softly flowing.
Have a look at some of the many different different styles of peplums gracing wedding dresses at the moment, from romantically lacy to strikingly modern, subtle or very over the top.

I personally am a fan of this style. Not sure if I would have one on my wedding dress, but check out this amazing top I just bought and can’t wait to wear!
Such a feminine shape, modernised with rad geometric patterns and easily dressed up or down – thanks ASOS, I love you.
