After the introduction of the high neck wedding dress, Australian brides embraced the look. Often covering the decolletage, the cut offers an alluring glimpse of the shoulders and arms, inviting the bride to accessories the overall look with chandelier earrings and statement jewellery at the wrist.
Halter neck wedding dresses offer brides the choice of modest high necklines, plunging v-necklines and everything in between. A white halter neck wedding dress can be adorned with shimmering beads, glittering sequin details, lace inserts and sheer panels. This silhouette is a canvas that flatters the figure and is easily personalised to showcase the bride’s style.
More modern, edgy bridges might opt for a halter neck wedding dress with sleeves, with a cold-shoulder look giving an alluring flash of skin while still offering coverage. This is the perfect option for a winter wedding, along with Riva Bridal Melbourne’s extensive range of long sleeved wedding dresses.
A simple and sophisticated choice that suits all brides
Brides choosing to wear a veil with their halter neck wedding gown will delight in the options available. A cathedral veil will ensure the arms and shoulders remain exposed just as the gown designer intended, without compromising on the graceful, cascading effect of the veil which is secured at the back of the head or in a hairstyle. A blusher is an elegant and convenient option that falls just below the elbow, offering coverage for the shoulders and arms as the bride enters the ceremony, shrouding her in an air of mystique.
Deciding whether a halterneck dress is the right choice for you is the most important part of this process. A halter neck wedding gown draws the eye up, effortlessly balancing the natural curves. While this neckline suits every body type, it’s ideal for brides with a medium to full bust. It’s also an excellent choice for brides who favour statement earrings and bracelets over necklaces: often a halter neck eliminates the need for jewellery at the neckline.
