Halter neck wedding gowns exude sophistication and style, but they aren't for everyone. The general rule of thumb is if you have broad shoulders or love working those traps at the gym, a halter neck wedding dress will draw the eye inwards and create the illusion of a more balanced outline, but if you are pear shaped then this neckline could accentuate that even more and emphasise a bottom heavy look.
If you are lucky enough to suit this neckline, here are our top 3 halter neck wedding dresses in store that will suit a range of budgets. Prices and availability are valid as of time of print (12/01/23).
The heavy weight duchess satin of Kin, by Catherine Deane drapes effortlessly over the body. A soft glossy sheen gives off a luxurious look and feel and the high, demure, neck is counterpoised with the completely open back. Price circa £1300.
Corseted for an ultra snatched look, the Anthurium gown by Alena Leena offers an alluring key hole design. Available in a soft sheen or matte version of their eco friendly viscose, it is another fabric designed to hang rather than cling and feels as good as it looks. We are exclusive stockists of Alena Leena in Scotland. Price circa £2350.
Last but by no means least is Brandi, by Enzoani Love. Made from a matte stretch georgette fabric this dress is designed to hug you in all the right places. The plunge neck is supported by the slightly higher back, but the sheer panels mean the back is anything but boring. Price circa £1395.
Style your halter neck wedding dress with some statement earrings to make the most of the space above your shoulders. We love the Hakuro mother of pearl earrings by Freya Rose.
