Borrowing a popular silhouette from couture runways, waist-defining peplums injected this season's wedding gowns with a dose of haute style in both structured and delicately draped shapes.

Believe it—there is a peplum wedding dress out there perfectly tailored to your body shape and bridal style. The key to nailing this trendiest of fashion trends, therefore, is in finding the right proportion. For his Spring 2013 show, Angel Sanchez offered an oversize, asymmetrical peplum gown (left) for women with enough height to carry off a wide wingspan. Factor in the silver sunburst beading and you've got a modern reboot—with an artistic flair—of the classic white column.
