Wedding Dress Neckline Types

When it comes to choosing the perfect wedding dress, the right neckline can make a HUGE difference! Not every neckline works with certain types of jewelry, and it can really make an impact on how your facial features are highlighted on your big day. The best way to pick the best neckline is to know what you’re looking for! Today, we’re highlighting some popular wedding dress neckline types and providing you with examples so you can take note of what you love to prepare for your bridal appointment!

 

 

Sweetheart Necklines

The sweetheart neckline is probably one of the most popular bridal gown necklines, and for good reason! Not only is this one of the most universally flattering necklines, but it creates the most romantic heart shape on the decolletage. As sweetheart necklines follow the curve of your bust, they will enhance your chest's curve and dip.

 

 

Plunging Necklines

A plunging neckline is perfect for brides looking to make a statement on their wedding day! This neckline features deep plunges on the front of the gown that goes past the bust, sometimes going even as low as the navel. For a daringly sexy and confident look, brides opt for plunging necklines to accentuate their décolletage and elongate their torso!

 

 

Off-The-Shoulder Necklines

We love an off-the-shoulder neckline! What makes this a great option is that it allows brides to show off their collarbone and shoulders while offering a bit of coverage on the upper arms. A sleeve that beautifully drapes over the shoulders will flatter any body type!

 

 

High Necklines

Having a high neckline on your wedding dress will make you look regal! As you walk down the aisle, you will look like royalty if your dress extends a little above your neck. It is possible to soften the look of this neckline by adding illusion details.

 

 

V-Necklines

This neckline type features a V-shaped dip in the middle-front, making it an elegant choice for your wedding day outfit! A V-neck neckline can be modest or daring depending on its depth. Additionally, this neckline draws the eyes down to the waist and flatters all types of brides, regardless of their size or shape.
