There’s a reason why certain bridal trends tend to stick. A bride wants to feel more beautiful on her wedding day than any other day. She wants a dress that is flattering and elegant, comfortable and romantic. And when it comes to necklines, there is one that we have seen at the top of every silhouette, made out of every fabric; the one that has seen other trends come and go but still tends to outlast them all: The sweetheart neckline.
Why we love it
This neckline balances is a little bit sweet and a little bit sexy. It toes the line between elegant and flirty flawlessly. By hugging the natural curve of your chest, the sweetheart neckline elongates the neck, creating a graceful, sweeping line and a perfect frame for an heirloom pendant necklace or delicately bare décolletage.
Why you’ll love it
This neckline has been one of the most enduring trends in bridal because it is universally flattering. It gives the illusion of volume for smaller-chested women and sufficiently supports those who are well-endowed. It frees your arms for spontaneous celebrating and a night full of dance moves. Each of our wedding dresses is meticulously designed and constructed so that it is guaranteed to be the most flattering thing you’ve ever put on. The construction of the dress will guarantee that it stays in place from your promenade down the aisle to you getting a little-bit-louder-now during Shout! on the dance floor. Many dresses with this neckline can be paired with a jacket to create a different look from day to night. A delicate lace pop-over jacket offers a beautiful solution for more conservative ceremonies that require a bride to cover her shoulders or for a little extra warmth for those early-spring or late-fall weddings. View our accessories and imagine how your look could change from the ceremony to the reception without buying another dress.
Our current favorite sweetheart neckline gowns include style 3890, a beautiful ball gown with a soft, cascading skirt. The stunning all over Chantilly lace in style 3961 adds a hint of surprise with a shocking slit. Style 3944 is a dangerous combination of a mermaid silhouette topped with a sweetheart neckline all in beautiful beaded lace for an overall fiercely feminine affect.
What we like most about this style is the woman who wear them, who make them come alive. Check out our Real Brides gallery to find inspiration behind the woman who wore this trend.
