Different Types of Necklines
when it comes to finding the right wedding dress, you will have to try on a lot of gowns to see which styles suits you. To help you out, we’ve made a little guide on different styles of bridal dresses to help you on your journey to find the one. we’ve covered the fabrics, sleeves, skirts, and now in this blog post, we’re going to show you some dress necklines alongside some styling tips. We also have ideas on how our sewing team at Huw Rees Brides can change up these neckline styles to ensure that your dress looks perfect for your big day.
The Bardot and sweetheart necklines are ideal for show your shoulders, collarbones and some cleavage. These are versatile shapes that can be paired with a lovely necklace and any hairstyle you please. Fancy different looks for day and night, why not pair a strapless dress with a lace top to wear at the ceremony and then take off before your first dance? Strapless gowns are a great shape to sew on sleeves or straps of your choice.
Like the look of strapless dresses but want something over the shoulders? Spaghetti straps are perfect for providing support while still accentuate your profile. V neck gowns can create an illusion of height, which is ideal for petites. Deep V neck looks, where the V reaches down to the navel, are getting popular in bridal dresses. If you’re looking for a modest take on the deep V, we can add a sheer layer of fabric to cover the lower half of the shape. These necklines would look fabulous with statement earrings.
Looking for a modest look? These necklines are ideal to add elegance to your bridal dress. The boat neckline is high up on the bodice but it’s wide enough to skim on the collarbone to create a neat profile. High neck dresses can reach up to the nape of your neck and can even end below the jawline, which looks gorgeous with short or up-do hairstyles. Illusion necklines are made of a sheer bodice with lace motifs sewn onto the edges to create flowery straps. This style is fantastic for both covering you and show off some skin, and if you want more coverage, we can order in some more of the lace to add to the bodice as you desire. These designs can be worn with minimal jewellery, like simple pearl earrings for example for a fuss-free, glamorous look on your big day.
