Queen Anne wedding dress neckline

Finding the perfect neckline to flatter and suit your style is an often overlooked detail.  But when you think about it, necklines are crucial. After all, many wedding photos will be close-up, mainly focused on the neckline and bodice of your gown. So, what is your style?  Are you all about the chic boatneck?  Do you like a little extra coverage with an illusion neckline and sleeves?  Love the universally flattering v-neck?  Or maybe you just can't pass up the romance of a sweetheart neckline. We're here to help you decide with a selection from Justin Alexander's Sincerity line.

First, for those brides that want a classic look, but also want to move around easily without being worried about a wardrobe malfunction, the Queen Anne neckline (above) might be just the ticket for you.  It has all the style of the sweetheart, but also lace cap sleeves that come in at the collar.

Next, if you prefer a completely strapless look, you really can't beat the aforementioned sweetheart neckline (below).  As one of the most popular wedding dress necklines, it has become synonymous with tradition and elegance.  And, bonus, the dip at the center of the bust helps to elongate the neck!

The v-neck is a great neckline for two reasons. First, it is flattering on everyone.  Second, many brides favor it because it feels most like their own natural style.  Take a glance at your own closet to see that v-necks might just dominate your everyday look. For ladies who want to look like themselves (just a little more formal) on their wedding day, a v-neck is a no-brainer.

Lastly, illusion necklines have become the dominant wedding dress trend over the last few years.  Above, lace creates a sophisticated and timeless boatneck.  If you want a little more coverage, opt for a similar neckline in a sheer style with sleeves.
