The halter is the breezy relative of the V-neckline, but the straps wrap around the back of the neck or have a high neck with a deep armhole. It draws attention to the upper part of the body and provides bust support, so you don’t have to worry about pulling up your dress all night. The thicker the straps are, the more dramatic the effect is. Whisper-thin styles are soft and ethereal, creating a boho-beautiful look.
Modest and sophisticated, the bateau (also known as a boatneck) follows the natural curve of the collarbone straight to the shoulders. It’s perfect for pear-shaped brides, since it balances the upper and lower body. For a fresh take, consider a gown with illusion detailing so that a hint of skin peeks through underneath.
You don’t need an arsenal of props for your wedding photos — but a sweet sign, a whimsical element, or a sentimental memento can take your wedding photos to the next level. Plus, if you’re not entirely comfortable being on camera, a prop gives you something to do with your hands! Here, check out some of our favorite ideas from real weddings.
Modern and romantic with clean lines, the strapless neckline is ideal for minimalist brides. It’s usually cut straight across the chest, accentuating the arms and neck. This type of gown can be more difficult for full-busted women to pull off without the right shapewear (look for a strapless, long-line bra).
A sweetheart neckline is a distinctive heart-shaped style that accentuates décolletage, perfect for the bride who wants to either enhance or create the illusion of curves. It also lengthens the neck and adds balance to the overall silhouette. This season, bridal designers put a modern twist on this classic neckline with plunging styles, lace-embellished bodices, and delicate floral appliqués.

The athleisure trend (clothing that can double as exercise gear or a stylish everyday outfit) that’s been dominating streetwear is having a ripple effect in the world of weddings as well. We spotted sportier necklines, notice-me straps, and racerbacks at Bridal Fashion Week this season. Here, beautiful looks for the bride who lives in her yoga pants.
