Turtleneck wedding dresses and outfits

We have slowly been seeing the trend for higher necklines with bridal designers. One or the more recent trend is to fully embrace the higher neckline and have a turtleneck wedding dress! 

We are loving this trend, it is great for a winter wedding! It can also work in season with the right fabric choice. 

A turtleneck neckline refers to a style of wedding dress that features a high collar that extends all the way up to the wearer’s chin. A turtleneck wedding dress provides a modern take on traditional bridal style, with the elegant silhouette suggesting timeless sophistication and luxury.

Furthermore, by hiding the neck and upper chest area from view, this type of dress creates an instant focal point for onlookers to admire. So if you’re looking for a chic and elegant look for your big day, then a turtleneck wedding dress may just be the perfect choice for you!
