Planning for a wedding is such an exciting time, and as a blushing bride to be you’ll have plenty to get exciting about over the coming months. You’ve got your wedding venue to choose, your guestlist to finalise, bridesmaids to choose, meals to drool over, honeymoon plans to draw up, but most excitingly of all, you’ll have to visit a bridal boutique to try on a few different bridal gowns before settling on your dream choice of wedding dress. One serious consideration for a bridal gown in current trends, is what to do about the neckline of your wedding dress. A neckline has a massive impact on the overall aesthetic of a wedding outfit, and the right choice could be the finishing touch to an absolute dream day.
Every bride has an individual style of her own, and each bride has her own unique story to tell. Aside from that, there is always a need to find co-ordination with the overall theme of the wedding, and to match bridesmaids through accessories and the like. Booking an appointment for a wedding dress fitting is one of the most exciting things you can do as a bride to be, and during this process you’ll start to appreciate the importance of the neckline, as well as the skirt. These tiny details can make all the difference to the overall style of an entire wedding, not just the bridal gown itself.
One of the most timeless wedding dresses is that with a sweetheart neckline. It offers a touch of intimacy and delicacy, displaying a heart shape across the bust, and a dip to show off cleavage. For those brides with a larger bust, this little touch can add balance to the bridal gown, with an addition of softness to proceedings.
The strapless neckline on a wedding dress is also a classic for the modern bride. The dress is fitted perfectly under the arms and across the bust, with a fastening that is tight on the bride’s back. It helps to draw out the neck and draw the eye to any jewellery the bride is wearing (if there is a focus on accessories for the bride).
A traditional style that is popular with brides that have rounder hips, the square neckline helps to bring together a more traditional, formal bridal style, broadening out the shoulders and is matched perfectly with long gloves.
Once you have looked at all the different possible necklines for your bridal gown, you’ll want to start the process of choosing your dream wedding dress. Find a bridal boutique that can cater for your needs, is friendly, and allows you to bring your maid of honour, mother, mother-in-law, whoever you wish (even if this is just going to the wedding dress fitting on your own). The most important thing is that you are comfortable as possible on your big day, and the best bridal boutiques will guide you with expert advice, including the right neckline for your style and physique, but always with your comfort and happiness in mind.
