How to Choose Wedding Dress Neckline Cuts

Post by prechnhiz23 on Fri Feb 05, 2010 12:08 am

When shopping for a wedding dress, it is important to be aware of the different neckline cuts that are out there. It is important to remember that different necklines compliment different body types. With so many options currently available, ranging from a sweetheart cut to a strapless look to the off-the-shoulder style, a bride-to-be may not know where to start! If you are in the midst of making a decision on a designer wedding dress, becoming knowledgeable about specific neckline cuts can help you make the right decision.
The Sweetheart
The sweetheart neckline resembles the top half of a heart, hence the name. This neckline is a good option for the fuller-figured bride as it accentuates the chest area. In most cases, the sweetheart neckline has an overlay of sheer material rising above the heart-shape or some subtle piping, both of which give a longer, leaner look to the torso. This effect also makes the neck look longer and more romantic. Brides with a more boyish figure should avoid the sweetheart wedding dresses.
The Strapless
While some brides should avoid the strapless neckline, it does wonders for others. In many cases, the strapless neckline can be paired with the sweetheart neckline or straight neckline which gives the bride the illusion of a smaller figure. Women with broad shoulders should avoid the strapless wedding dresses but those with delicate shoulders and collarbones will do quite well with this style.
The Off-the-Shoulder
The off-the-shoulder wedding dress neckline is a very popular one. Just as you would imagine, the neckline starts just below your shoulders and emphasizes the neck, shoulders, and collarbone. The off-the-shoulder neckline has small sleeves that cover the top part of the arm. This neckline is flattering to all figures, but brides with fuller arms or issues with their shoulders should avoid it. This style is ideal for pear-shaped women, and anyone who would want to show off their shoulders.
The Bateau
The Sabrina neckline, also known as the bateau neckline, is great for brides with a certain body type. This neckline, cut straight across, follows the curve of the collarbone, edging near the tip of the shoulders. The Sabrina is usually accompanied by sleeves though many designers are now pairing it with sleeveless dress styles. Well-endowed women should avoid bateau wedding Dresses.
The Portrait
Women with full arms and prominent collarbones may seriously consider the portrait neckline for their wedding dress. Similar to the off-the-shoulder style but with more fabric, the portrait scoops across the shoulders (from tip to tip). If you have an undefined collarbone, this is probably not the neckline for you.
The Scoop
Anyone, no matter what body type, can wear the scoop wedding dresses. It is the ultimate classic style and can be either low or high cut. In many cases, the scoop in the front is complimented by a lower scoop in the back.
The Halter
If you have broad shoulders, you might want to try on halter wedding dresses. The halter features a strap that wraps around the neck which is fastened by tying the straps or with buttons. The neck is usually high with deep armholes and is ideal for very tall women (usually 57 and up.) If you have narrow shoulders, the halter neckline may not work for you.
The V-Neck
The v-neck wedding dresses are pretty self-explanatory; the neckline dips down in the front mimicking the shape of the letter V. The neckline may be complimented by a similar dip in the back, but not always. This neckline draws attention away from the bust and is a great alternative for brides with a B- or C-cup. Most brides-to-be can pull off the v-neck.
The Jewel
The jewel neckline is a fairly new style in the way of designer wedding dresses. It is also often referred to as the t-shirt neckline as it looks almost like your average t-shirt. The neckline is rounded and sits at the base of the neck. Some dresses even play with the idea of the t-shirt and place a decorative pocket on the front. The jewel neckline is great for a modest figure, as it helps enhance the bust. Certain women may want to avoid jewel wedding dresses as it will make the chest seem larger.
After reading through all these wedding dress neckline cuts, you may think you know exactly which one is right for you. However, do keep in mind that these are just general suggestions and that your best bet is to try on any dress, regrdless of the neckline, that you like when shopping. Also keep in mind that just because you love the photograph, the dress may not look right on you. Always try on the wedding dress (more than once) to keep your options open.

To choose a style of photography can be a tough decision sometimes for the photographers. As the style and tastes changes according to the variations in thinking of different couples. Younger couple regularly wants a more natural look, while their mother and father will probably be fans of normal posed photography. These days, candid wedding photography has been the most popular choice among couples and a professional wedding photographer also giving priority to this.
