The sweetheart neckline is one of the most popular necklines for wedding gowns. It is usually shaped like the top of a heart. Since sweetheart necklines follow the curve and dip of your chest, this neckline is a great option for brides with a fuller bust with it accentuating the décolletage.
The plunging neckline is considered one of the most dramatic and is a excellent option for the bride who isn't afraid to take risks. This neckline dips low, elongating your figure and giving a sliming effect while adding a touch of sexiness to any wedding dress silhouette.
The high neckline is currently trending in the bridal industry and is an amazing choice for a bride who wants to give off the sophisticated feel. This neckline hits around the collarbone and can be either traditional or modern, depending on the style and fabric.
A portrait neckline is a stunning choice for the elegant and romantic bride which features a soft scoop from one shoulder to the other to show off the décolletage.
The U-shaped silhouette with its low, circular neckline accentuates the collarbone and lengthens the neck to create an elongated and sleek silhouette. It is a universally flattering neckline that looks great on all.
Halter necklines are not only a favorite for everyday fashion but bridal gowns as well. This neckline shows off your shoulders and offers a modest look that can vary from covered to sexy.
The square neckline is simple, modern and chic. Square necklines don't have to be sharp and angled either, curved lines can serve to soften the shape.
For a contemporary and feminine feel, consider a square shaped neckline.
