How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Dress Neckline

How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Dress Neckline

Every bride wants to look picture-perfect on her wedding day.  Get a head start by choosing the perfect wedding dress neckline for your body type and décolleté.  

Queen of Hearts: The Sweetheart Neckline Wedding Dress

Hands down the most popular of all wedding dress necklines, the sweetheart is hard to fault. Not only is formed by the curves of a heart shape (romantic, right?) but it also frames you décolleté and exposes collarbones and shoulders. But is it for you? Sweetheart necklines are best for mid-to-generous bust lines, and they can also make short necks look longer. If you are on the flat-chested side, Rose has an in-vogue, bare back corset bodice attached to a slim-line mermaid silhouette.  For more generous support, Splendor has a boned bodice, higher curves, and a fabulous screen-siren silhouette. 



Sweet & Chic! The Bateau Neckline Wedding Dress

The bateau, or sailor, neckline has forever been associated with French-style chic. Remember the film Amélie? It’s perfect for brides with swan-like necks, wide shoulders and generous bust lines. White One works the look by forming the neckline with a lace yoke over a more revealing bodice. Take Baneberry for instance, where the lace treatment is extended to the skirt as well. For a classic bateau princess silhouette bridal look, Plumeria ticks all boxes. Style your hair in a French roll, add a few sparkly accessories, a pop of lipstick, and you are good to go!  



Classic & Classy: The V-Neck Wedding Dress

Whatever your bust and shoulder size, there is a good chance you will look gorgeous in a V-Neck wedding dress. For those that want it (and less face it, who doesn’t?) it adds the illusion of height. This hard-working sartorial style comes in a wide variety of looks and variations at White One.  If you are inclined to go a little risqué on your wedding day, Orense highlights its deep V-Neck with a plunge back and sides supported by nude inserts. For something more youthful and romantic, Phlox, with its soft, swingy tulle skirt and lacey bodice, is perfect for outdoor and garden weddings.


Vintage Romance. The Off-The-Shoulder Wedding Dress

Flirty and full of retro-inspired charm, the off-the-shoulder, or dropped-shoulder, neckline can look sensational on brides with small to medium décolletés (anything larger and you might end up looking a little ‘busty’). Feeling a little full around the middleThe V-Neck can also help with that too, as it puts the focus well and truly on your shoulders, neck and face. A lovely example of this is Cardinal, a fairytale wedding dress that drops gently off the shoulders and elegantly exposes the back. For more volume and ease of movement, Mandrake is a boho wedding dress that pairs a flounced bodice with a swingy skirt, setting just the right tone for beach weddings.
