What is about a wedding dress that we just can’t resist? You don’t even have to be a bride-to-be to love them. I’m 4 years into married life and still love looking at wedding dresses. Is anyone with me?
From high necklines, dramatic décolletages to plunging V-necks, apparently the next big thing in bridal fashion for 2015-16 is a focus on necklines. Now I’m fashionably challenge but, fortunately Bride&co, South Africa’s largest wedding and special occasion department store, are able to dish the details on the latest wedding dress neckline trends…
1. Trend: Collar Necklines
Get instant queen status in a wedding dress with a regal collar design. Feature or jewelled necklines mean you can save on accessories and skip the necklace for the ultimate built-in glamour. This Oleg Cassini A-line wedding gown with feature lace collar is available exclusively in South Africa at Bride&co Available in white and ivory (style WPD15110).
2. Trend: Illusion Necklines
If you’re over the traditional strapless or sweetheart necklines, add a touch of drama to your wedding dress with an illusion neckline. We love this popular high-neck style from Bride&co’s Oleg Cassini range. The elegant boat neck is completely unique with its lace detailing and sheer illusion dip, complementing the drama of a fit and flare wedding gown. Available in Whisper Pink and Ivory (style: CWG665).
3. Trend: Deep V Necklines
The most popular style this season in wedding dress trends is Deep V plunging necklines – seen on fashion runways. It creates a sexy silhouette and a refreshing balance to wedding gown’s sweet and romantic nature. We love this deep-V illusion neckline from Bride&co’s Viola Chan range with a subtle sliver of skin. Galania Signature wedding gown available in South Africa exclusively at Bride&co (style:WPD16389).
4. Trend: Turtle Necks
Following on the popular high-neckline trend, turtle neck wedding dress designs offer plenty of warmth for winter weddings and the ultimate in chic sophistication and something different for your wedding day look. We love this Oleg Cassini all-over-lace, fit and flare style wedding gown. Available in Whisper Pink and Ivory (style: CWG666).
5. Trend: Bateau Necklines
The epitome of classic elegance, the bateau neckline – also known as a boatneck – features a wider opening at the neck and follows the curve of the collarbone to the very tip of shoulders. It’s ultra-sophisticated and flattering, and busty or conservative brides-to-be will love it because it also offers extra coverage and support.
One of our favourite bateau style wedding dresses from Bride&co’s Oleg Cassini range is this A-line wedding gown with 3D flower design. Available in Whisper Pink and Ivory, exclusive to Bride&co (style: CWG659).
Walk down the aisle in style with this timeless satin A-line wedding gown from the Bride&co Collection. The laser-cut florals – another trend this season – and boat neckline add something extra to this classic princess-look (style: WG3709).
