Wedding Dress Neckline Types

Wedding Dress Neckline Types

When it comes to Bridal Gowns, there are many necklines to choose from. We also recommend considering a few details when selecting! We like our brides to think about the venue, the time of year, the vibe of the wedding, any finishing touches you'd like to highlight (special jewelry, hairstyle, etc.), and most importantly, what makes you feel most beautiful! The dress should always reflect your unique sense of style, but the neckline is what is framing you! Let's take a closer look at a few wedding dress necklines available and what makes each of them special to help you find the perfect look for your big day.


High Neckline

Sareh Nouri - Addison


If you've dreamt of being a regal bride, go for a high neckline! Whether the top edge of your dress reaches the bottom of your neck or extends slightly above it, you'll look like royalty walking down the aisle. This is such a flattering neckline option offering beauty and modesty!


Square Neckline

Anne Barge Couture - Coraline


Square necklines are a timeless style that always look fresh and modern. It’s fantastic for all figures, offering support and soupçon of modesty. Square necklines are a lovely option for brides who know they want a strap, but want something a little more exciting than a V-neck. Chic and comfortable, a square neckline never fails!


Cat-Eye Neckline

Dana Harel - Nur


A cat eye neckline is definitely one of the most unique wedding dress necklines. It’s a favorite of ours because of how romantic, sophisticated, and a little bit edgy it feels! This neckline is characterized by how it mimics the shape of a cat’s eye. This neckline can be found in corseted bodices like in the gown pictured above, or in solid fabrics.



Scooped Neckline

Valentini Spose - Bridget


A scoop neckline is another that remains a classic while always feeling fresh. This neckline can be found with and without straps depending on the dress. A particular favorite of ours is a scoop neckline with peaked edges like the gown pictured above.


Sweetheart Neckline

Caroline Castigliano - Just Julie


It’s no mystery where the name “Sweetheart Neckline” found its origins. A romantic heart shape is created by the strapless neckline and dip in the middle front. Sweetheart necklines are perfect for enhancing and flattering all bust lines, offering a customizable amount of coverage from how much lift your bust is given on the inside of the gown.


Plunging Neckline

Savin London - Zara


Sexy and daring, plunging necklines elongate the torso and accentuate the décolletage on brides who want a look with more edge. A small piece of illusion mesh is placed between the plunge to ensure the dress stays in place and provides more support for a bride’s bustline!
