We’re hopeless romantics here at Bridal Musings HQ, we tear up over first looks, fawn over wedding vows, and when it comes to wedding dresses, blush hues, ruffed skirts and dreamy lines have us falling head over heels.
Which is why this new romantic silhouette is all kinds of wonderful.
Off-the-shoulder dresses cropped up all over the bridal catwalks this season, and we couldn’t be more delighted.
The kind of neckline fairytale wedding dresses are made of (think Belle in Beauty & The Beast) this style can not just be timeless and classic, but fresh and stylish too. From intricate lace work, and cute polka dot panels, to luxe embellishments and Grecian design, off-the-shoulder is feminine, versatile, romantic, and gorgeous.
The perfect look for pair shaped brides to show off their slim shoulders, or for bustier brides, who want to minimise cleavage. As a sweet and feminine shape, it’s also give a romantic fit to less curvy builds – ask for a Portrait or Bateau neckline to give added shape to your bust, and show off your collarbones.
