When dreaming of your perfect wedding dress, you've likely selected a desired silhouette, style, and neckline. From V-neck bridal gowns to ensembles with bateau, halter, scoop, and square necklines, there are a variety of looks to choose from. One of the most classic and popular necklines is the sweetheart neckline. Since it showcases a low front that's shaped like the top of a stylized heart, we thought it would be the perfect detail to highlight on Valentine's Day.
Strapless wedding dresses with sweetheart necklines are perhaps the most common; however, we're also seeing sweetheart necklines beneath lace or illusion overlays as well as off-the-shoulder dresses featuring the heart-shaped neckline. The style is flattering for most brides, which is no wonder it's such a popular choice! Brides with large busts love the look to enhance their curves, while women with smaller chests are given the illusion of a larger bust. The neckline also complements a number of silhouettes, from sleek fit-and-flare and A-line dresses to ball gowns and slim-fitting mermaid gowns.
Take a look at the beautiful bridal gowns below from the latest fall 2018 collections, all of which feature sweetheart necklines! To see more from each of these designer's collections, click on your favorite photos.
