Halter neck wedding dresses are a great way to add that extra wow to a super simple wedding dress. They are a great neckline that suits most shapes and sizes.
They work with all dress silhouettes also, making them an excellent choice for the modern bride.
A higher neckline, especially halter necks is a newer trend in the bridal fashion world. We love it!
It is a great choice for more simple pared-back style gowns to add a little drama. With the higher neck, you can choose to go full low cut back without it looking too revealing.

Who does a halter neck wedding dress suit?
A halter neck wedding dress is a great choice for any bride who wants to add a little extra something to her wedding dress. It is also a good choice for brides who want to show off their shoulders and neckline. Halter necks are also a great choice for brides who want a more modern look to their wedding dresses.
They suit all shapes and sizes and all dress silhouettes. This means that no matter what you can find a halter dress for you. Keep it simple and loose for a modern take on a timeless bridal style. Or go tight and mermaid for a sexier vibe. Look at lace options and tassels for a free-sprited boho look.
What to consider when looking for a halter neck wedding dress
The great thing about a halter neck wedding dress is that they are so versatile. You can find them in all sorts of different materials, styles, and silhouettes. This means that there is definitely a halter dress out there for you. When looking for the perfect halter neck wedding dress consider the style of your wedding.
Think about your own fashion sense and what you love. The simple silk Megan Markle style is great for minimal brides wanting a modern clean look. If boho or vintage is more your style then you can definitely find the one for you, think outside the box a little.
What bra to wear with halter neck dresses?
A great question that we get asked a lot! We always recommend wearing a bra if possible with your wedding gown. With some styles like halter necks, this can be tricky but there are some great clear straps or strapless bras out there now. If these do not work for your dress then look into bra tape.
How to style a halter neck dress?
As it is all about the neckline with a halter neck dress then we say stay away from adding a necklace. A nice pair of earrings and a bracelet will give a stylish finish. As the eyes are drawn to the neck area you can go all out with a crown or headpiece for that extra wow!
Which fabric is best for halter neck dresses?
We love a silk simple halter neck but really most fabrics work. It really does depend on your style and the silhouette you want.
