A Guide To Wedding Dress Necklines

A Guide To Wedding Dress Necklines

There are so many different types of necklines on wedding gowns, from asymmetrical and strapless to sweetheart and scoop! There are many factors to consider when choosing a
neckline for your wedding dress: the venue, the time of year, the vibe, and any finishing touches you would like to highlight (special jewelry, hairstyle, etc.). Make your neckline reflect your personal style! In order to help you choose the perfect look for your big day, let's take a closer look at a few wedding dress necklines available and what makes each one unique.


High Neckline


If you want to feel like a regal bride, opt for a high neckline! You'll look like royalty walking down the aisle, regardless of whether the top edge of your dress reaches the bottom of your neck or extends slightly above it. With its flattering neckline and ample coverage, this is one of our favorite neckline options!




In addition to adding height to the dress, the V-neck is an all-purpose wedding dress neckline. A V-neck can be extremely flattering for those with large collar bones or a generous décolleté!




An illusion neckline makes it the perfect look for a fairytale bride. From the top of the bodice to the neckline, it is usually sheer fabric, such as tulle or lace, that creates the illusion of a strapless dress, but with a little less coverage. It is also possible to embellish tulle or lace with appliques if you wish to enhance the soft, dreamy appearance of the gown. Choose jewelry that won't interfere with the dress' neckline if you want to emphasize the neckline!


Sweetheart Neckline


Another popular choice for brides is a sweetheart neckline, which looks like the top of a heart. This dress has a strapless neckline and a dip in the middle front that give it a romantic heart shape. Since sweetheart necklines follow the curve and dip of your chest, they are great for enhancing your bust!


Plunging Neckline


A neckline like this has a deep plunge in the front, sometimes going all the way to the navel. Those who want a daringly sexy look should consider plunging necklines that elongate the torso and emphasize the décolletage. You don't have to worry about wardrobe mishaps with the deep V-cut because it is usually connected on both sides by illusion pieces!
