The perfect wedding dress neckline will frame your face, reflect the style of your wedding, and most importantly, make you feel the most comfortable, confident, and beautiful on your big day! As wedding dresses have evolved from classic and traditional looks to extravagant and trendy gowns, so have the necklines. Sweetheart necklines are no longer the only option! During your bridal appointment, it’s important to try different necklines and silhouettes to find what suits you best. Here are wedding dress necklines: trends you should try!
The V neck shape elongates the torso as it draws the eye down and accentuates the waist. It’s a very versatile neckline as it looks great with any skirt shape from mermaid to ballgown! This wedding dress neckline typically has some sort of strap or sleeve, which is great for the bride’s comfort. While the deeper V’s have been trendy lately, any v neckline will be timeless and elegant for your wedding pictures.
The high neck provides coverage while still looking trendy. We’re thinking Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly vibes! It looks great sleeveless and accentuates the arms and shoulders this way. But it also looks great with sleeves of any length. The high neck gives a refined and sophisticated look but does not have to be so stuffy! With lace and illusion details, brides can feel comfortable with the coverage but still have a delicate look. A high neckline styles well with drop earrings and beautiful updos.
The off-the-shoulder wedding dress neckline is perfect for all the romantic feels! This neckline shows off the collarbone and shoulders while providing coverage on the arms in the most elegant way. It also frames the face beautifully and is flattering for most figures. To draw the focus back to your face, wear a collar length or even choker necklace with this neckline.
The plunge neckline is a more dramatic version of the v neck for brides who aren’t afraid to show a little more skin. They are super flattering for petite figures who want to give the illusion of more height. While plunges are a deeper cut neckline, they are often connected with a piece of illusion tulle to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions! Soften the look by wearing a half-up/half-down hair do. Let the neckline do its work and nix the necklace for pretty earrings.
