Many Brides will already have a clear picture of how the neckline of their dress will look - pictures of wedding dresses in will often feature the lower half of the outfit, but will virtually always show the top half.


Brides are bombarded with images of necklines and most will already be aware of some of the some options open to them. This article features images and descriptions of all the main neckline options open to Brides. For those of you who are just beginning down the Wedding dress path, you will quickly be able to see how many neckline options there actually are!


A-Symetric Neckline



The asymmetric neckline is a relatively new trend in the Wedding dress industry, having made its first appearance just a few years ago.


Whereas a symetrical neckline will be identical on both the left and right half of the Bride's neck, the asymmetric design has a different look on each side. One of the most popular asymmetric designs is the one shouldered bodice/dress, although a strapless design (where one side of the bodice rises to a point a couple of inches below the collar bone) is also a common find.


This type of neckline is ideal for style icons looking for something a little bit different.




The Boat design is similar to the ‘off the shoulder’ design (see below).


However, instead of actual straps that sit on the shoulder, the dress features a separate panel (or sash) of material that goes from the top of the left arm across to the top of the right arm in a gentle curve.




The haltner neckine is created by attaching a single strap from one shoulder to the other. The strap passes around the back of the neck. 


Halter neck straps can be of various widths and work well for both traditional gowns and for less formal occasions.
