Halterneck wedding dresses are a gorgeous and incredibly flattering choice, and it's not just us that think so - just ask Sofia Richie, who wore a custom-made Chanel halterneck dress at her wedding in the South of France. The gorgeous gown was embellished with white and iridescent beads and if you want to steal her style, you'll find similar designs below.
They’re ideal for full-busted figures (and you can see more wedding dresses for bigger busts here) as they provide lots of support, but not just that, wedding dress with a halter neckline works on so many body types. The cut shows off your shoulders and back, draws the eye upwards and balances out the body. Petite, wide shouldered and hourglass figures will find a halterneck balances out their proportions, while athletics figures will love showing off their toned arms.
If you’ve not considered a halterneck before, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with these styles. If you’ve always wanted a halterneck wedding dress, you’ve come to the right place too! You don’t need tonnes of jewellery to work with a halterneck; a statement wedding lipstick, cool wedding earrings and beautiful up (or down!) wedding hairstyle will show your dress off perfectly.
