An off-the-shoulder wedding dress is a stunning option for any big day, whether you want a laid-back boho look or you're opting for more elevated glamour. We've rounded up our fave off the shoulder wedding dresses for every bride, and we have all these beauties in-store!
When off-the-shoulder wedding dresses first appeared in the bridal world, designers ran with the idea, transforming a once-seasonal trend into a timeless style. This alternative neckline, favoured by celebrities such as Beyoncé and Paris Hilton, can be found on a vast number of stunning wedding gowns. Largely due to its effortlessly flattering effect on most body types, and its ability to highlight the upper body in an elegant but subtly sexy way.
The best part is that an off-the-shoulder neckline complements any gown shape, from mermaid to sheath to ballgown, and any fabric, from wispy tulle to intricate lace to mikado. If you can't decide whether to go strapless or off-the-shoulder, an off-the-shoulder dress gives you the best of both worlds. The straps or sleeves begin below the shoulders, exposing the décolletage and collar bones while still providing some arm coverage.
Off-the-shoulder necklines are ideal for a regal look at any time of year. A long sleeve paired with an off-the-shoulder style in satin or mikado is perfect for an Autumn or Winter wedding. Or, keep it light and airy in a tulle fabric with an exaggerated drape to your off-the-shoulder straps if you're getting married in the Spring or Summer.
To help you find the perfect gown with this ultra-romantic neckline, we've compiled a list of 9 of our favourite off-the-shoulder wedding dresses.
