Real Bride Stories
Demure and dainty, or sultry and stunning, the neckline you choose can totally transform your wedding day look! Trendy brides may love the effect of a sheer illusion with a touch of sparkle, while traditional gals may be drawn to a vintage, high neck style. Here’s our rundown of which neckline is your perfect fit!
With its heart shape, the sweetheart neckline is a bridal classic! Showing just the right amount of decolletage, it helps to elongate your neck and create a feminine shape. For women with a larger bust, you may opt for this style with straps for extra support, while smaller chested women can add to their curves with the rounded shape.
Universally flattering, there’s no denying this neckline is a stunner! Whether you go with a deep and plunging version or a delicate draped design, the v-neck is a timeless staple you can’t go wrong with!
Modest brides will fall in love with this demure look! Effortlessly elegant, the wide shape is reminiscent of vintage styles. Go for the ultra-sophisticated, high-cut style or an illusion bateau that looks like sheer perfection!
For women looking to show off their arms and shoulders, the halter is the neckline for you! The high-neck style is often designed with a peek-a-boo bodice detail, for a less conventional bridal neckline that can create a real wow moment!
Whether it’s a straight style or a classic portrait, off-the-shoulder gowns are a perfect mix of trendy and traditional. It gives off a flirty and feminine feel that looks gorgeous paired with both long and short sleeves! This is another neckline perfect for showing off your neck and collar bones.
A touch of modern magic, strapless gowns come in all different forms! Straight across has a clean effect, while sweetheart styles feel romantic. This neckline tends to be better suited for smaller busted women, who don’t require as much support.
Illusion bodices are having a moment, and we can see why! The sheer style has an alluring effect and with touches of lace and sparkles, there’s usually a major glam factor! This is the perfect neckline for brides looking to show a little skin with plenty of coverage and support. (Devon, 6969 & Elisha, 3351)
