High Neckline

A very sophisticated option, this sleek option is for those who want a more subdued sexy look that’s conservative and very fashion forward. This stylish neckline is often paired with a beautiful up-do and takes care of not having to look fo necklaces.

Bateau (boat neck)

The bateau neck is a timeless neckline that displays a curve that follows the collarbone to the very top of the shoulder. As you can see, the neckline is wider than a scoop or high neck, and more in the shape of a boat. Brides looking for a gown that is both modest and stylish tend to gravitate towards this classic style.

One Shoulder

This neckline is a serious statement piece that draws the eye up and down the asymmetrical style and channels the inner goddess in all of us. The one shoulder definitely makes a statement, bold, beautiful and flawless. It brings together the traditional with the modern and you can always customize the size and coverage to really go for the look you want!

Halter

This ready to wear neckline has crossed over to the wedding runway and we’re loving the boho chic feel. Halters are classified when the top gathers around the neck at the back and creates a beautiful A line shape. Halter dresses will make you look taller, slimmer and show off your shoulders. It’s perfect for those who want more coverage in the front with a touch of sexy!
