Our bridal consultants are able to lead you in this journey because they are well educated on all the designers we carry, as well as the silhouettes and necklines that will look best on you and your body type.
Many brides know what type of gown they want, even before they step foot in our boutique. But how much do you know about specific necklines? We created this quick and easy guide to breakdown the various wedding gown necklines to help you choose the style that’s perfect for you.
