With so many beautiful wedding dresses to consider, it can be hard to narrow down what you are looking for when trying on dresses. Once you decide what style or styles of dress you are looking for, your consultant will guide you to try dresses that will look amazing on you. Here are a few pointers to help you decide what type of neckline you may want in your wedding dress. OFF THE SHOULDER Off the shoulder wedding dresses have straps that sit just below the shoulders, draped over your upper arms. This neckline is flattering on nearly every body type because it draws attention to your face, and emphasizes the smallest part of your waistline. These dresses make a dramatic impact on your wedding day photographs. STRAPLESS Strapless dresses are a popular choice for brides because it shows off your neck and collar bones, creating a feminine and romantic look. These wedding dresses are easy to accessorize with earrings or a necklace without having to worry about competing with the beauty of your wedding gown. They can dip down in the middle, creating a sweetheart neckline or go straight across. SWEETHEART The sweetheart neckline is easy to identify because it is shaped like the top of a heart. It can accentuate your decolletage, and makes your neck and torso look longer. V-NECK A V neck wedding dress dips down in the front to the shape of a "V". It draws your eye downward, creating the illusion of length. This neckline is very flattering on petite and narrow frames, because it helps to elongate the body. HALTER/HIGH NECKLINE The halter neckline wraps around the back of the neck, leaving the shoulders bare. It looks great on tall body types, and shows off a long neck and defined shoulders.
