After that dazzling smile that you cannot stop flashing on your special day, this is one of the first things your guests will notice. It sets the tone for the rest of the gown and can make or break a great close-up photo or selfie. I speak of course about the neckline of your wedding gown! Sweetheart, straight across, halter, illusion, V, deep V – the list goes on and on of the different styles of necklines available to you. Can't decide which one is best for you? Well that's where I and my extensive expertise comes in!
Sweet and Chic
A bateau neckline, a jewel or high neckline, or even a simple scoop neckline – these are all wonderful for brides looking for a bit more coverage or modesty at the top. Don't let the idea of modesty fool you though! These necklines can still be extremely stylish and very very chic when combined with the right gown silhouette and accessories. For these styles I would suggest a very chic up-do, maybe we a few curly tendrils coming gown around your face. Pair it with some stunning stud earrings and you have a very elegant and alluring wedding day look. (Pnina tip: If you do decide to wear your hair down, I suggest having some of it pulled back so you and your guests can admire your stunning neckline.)
The Classic Go-To
Sweetheart neckline, the strapless straight across, the V-neckline – classic staples within the bridal fashion world. A sweetheart neckline is hands-down the most popular neckline there is. In my opinion it also looks the best on a variety of gowns and body types. The strapless straight across style is ideal for someone not looking for any cleavage and the V-neckline perfect for those wanting to show just a little bit of cleavage. These necklines have stood the test of time and no matter which one you choose, when fitted properly, will have you looking close-up ready.
A Daring Twist
The deep V-neckline, the halter top, the off the shoulder neckline – these necklines are for those brides who aren't afraid to show a little more skin than the average bride. Classy and sexy coexist and compliment each other in many Pnina Tornai gowns, letting brides embrace their more sensual side while still appearing bridal on their special day. Bold brides who aren't afraid to accentuate their natural assets flock to these sexy necklines to achieve that “va-va-voom” look and up the “wow” factor of their wedding dresses.
There are plenty more necklines within the bridal fashion world, all having different variations of themselves and appearing different from gown to gown and designer to designer. Find out what you would be most comfortable in and then find the designer that can make all of your ideal dress dreams come true. Then say yes to the gorgeous gown, flash that winning smile, and get ready for your close-up!
