8 Interesting wedding dress features to inspire the modern bride

Weddings are a routine affair now, and a white wedding dress is expected norm at most weddings. There are so many splendid wedding dress choices in this serene color, and more ideas evolving by the hour. So, why should a bride be tempted to look elsewhere, when she is to choose a dress for the most special day in her life?

While white may be the typical choice, this doesn’t mean there is any dearth of exciting options in white, waiting to be discovered. So, if you want something unusual and interesting, albeit in pristine white, to wear on your wedding day, you are in luck. Today, we will take a look at some interesting wedding dress styles to inspire you, and give you more variety than the regulars on the wedding scene.

Romantic tea-length gown

Anything that ends above the ankles is immediately interesting in a wedding scene. As brides have forever been associated with long, traditional wedding gowns that extend into long overflowing trains, a short wedding dress is unexpected and hence, refreshing. The best thing is that you do not have to go too short either, as tea-length dresses are versatile and suit many wedding themes. They have the capacity to help a bride stand out from the wedding party and guests.

This tea-length wedding dress is a romantic stunner, that has all the elements expected in a wedding gown, except for the length. The mix of satin and net, ends in a beautiful scalloped hemline with floral motifs spanning it. The layered A-line skirt is a perfect way to show off a tiny waist, and the sweetheart neckline adds a romantic touch. Simple but stylish, this is the perfect dress for a vintage-style or casual wedding. We can also see many brides with their hearts set on a garden wedding, fall in love with this desirable beauty. This pattern is one you should certainly consider if you would like to look young and dashing on your wedding day.

Empire bodice with narrow draped skirt

The empire style waistline is usually expected to flow into a billowing skirt or at least one that flows away from the waist and hips. This is the reason that this style has always been favored by those with a heavier waist, and to camouflage thinner hips. However, the empire style would be just as attractive, and more suitable for brides with just the right amount of curves, when paired with a narrow and snug fitting silhouette. This would in fact be a glamorous and sexy dress style in this case.

This gown is the perfect example of the style we just discussed. The sequined bodice has a dramatic empire waistline fashioned in a draped design, with a stunning beaded applique in the center. From here, the A-line skirt falls to floor length, and also features a side front split. It is a gown that has enough going on to be a stunner. Nevertheless, it also features a chapel length train and a lace-up corset back that adds an even more ravishing finish.

Full-length illusion sleeves over sweetheart bodice

We have seen enough gowns with sweetheart bodices, and an almost equal number with full-length sleeves. While the former style is a wedding staple for brides who do not mind exposing their decolletage and shoulders, the latter is usually chosen by brides who strive for the exact opposite. However, it isn’t everyday that we see these two wedding dress features come together to create a sophisticated combination, like we will just see.

Here is a gown that combines both the dress features we discussed earlier. A dress artistically created with ample draping in the bodice and skirt with a classic sweetheart neckline. However, the addition of illusion sleeves of full-length gives it an unexpected twist, and this factor adds extra appeal to this dress. The sheer sleeves are adorned with specs of lace along the length, and these are very dramatic. The back of this dress is equally stunning, with the illusion sleeves closing in a keyhole design. Additionally, it has also been embellished with crystals and rhinestones to create a sparkling effect.

Tip: If you like the idea of adding sleeves to any other sweetheart gown for a similar effect, you can easily have this done by a talented seamstress, by using extra fabric. You can also achieve the same effect by pairing your gown with a full-sleeve bolero or jacket, fashioned in the same style as seen in this gown. This allows you to have a full-sleeve gown to cover up your arms, even while you can keep the sweetheart gown that you have your heart set on.

Off-the-shoulder neckline and long sleeves

The off-the-shoulder neckline is a style statement that is very sexy, and hence chosen by many brides today. However, we usually see it paired with thin shoulder straps or with cap-sleeves. Seldom is it seen with long sleeves. When it is, the effect is very attractive, and almost has a vintage style associated with it. So, when lace is also included in the design, it is time to end your search for the best vintage gown. Check it out.

Here, the off-the-shoulder neckline is combined with elbow-length sleeves for a contemporary take on a classic feature. This A-line dress also has elaborate lace work all over its length and scalloped details bordering the neckline and hemline. A sweetheart bodice plays peek-a-boo from beneath the lace layer, while crystal beading accents the lace motifs making it elegant and classic. Think of this gown as a choice that will be appreciated by the older generation, even while it is glamorous but very comfortable.

Plunging sweetheart neckline with illusion halter yoke

Plunging necklines are not for the faint-hearted, as they are a sexy element with a lot of risk. However, if you are a bold but practical bride, the illusion style neckline clubbed with the plunging bit can come to your rescue, in the form of a modesty piece. We think plunging necklines are statement pieces by itself, that a bride doesn’t need much more to make a dramatic statement. Look at this dress here.

This gown features a plunging sweetheart neckline, but in a safe manner that will support the bride’s bust. It has a barely there sheer yoke fashioned in a halter style, so the bodice is supported and held up in position without effort. Additionally, the illusion neckline is adorned with crystal beading that resembles a necklace. This eliminates the need for an additional neck-piece. Plunging necklines are usually paired with spaghetti straps, but this illusion-style pairing defeats that any day. The entire dress is in a single satin finish, with a full godet skirt. The absence of any other embellishments, aside from the necklace adds to its sophistication and style. The back is equally captivating, with the illusion neckline continuing into a band of encrusted crystal details that culminates in a low-cut V shape.

Sheath dress with A-line overskirt

Sheath dresses are a great choice for brides who want to create the illusion of curves. However, they do not have the flare or layers that make it as dramatic as a ball-gown or layered skirt. So, it may be figure-flattering for many brides, but it is not always a first-choice. However the simple silhouette that the sheath dress has can be elevated with a detachable over-skirt. The result is as good as having two wedding dresses, but at a single price. So, if you want a different look for the ceremony, and the reception, you can have it with this option. Take a look at this dress to see what we are talking about.

This two-piece lace and tulle wedding dress is the Y11562 from the Sophia Tolli wedding dress collection at Best for Bride. The strapless sweetheart sheath has been accented with lace appliques throughout the length, and they are employed in a beautiful shadow box effect. The waistline is highlighted with a waistband of ornate crystal beading. Brides can choose to wear this dress with or without the misty A-line overskirt, depending on the effect they seek to achieve. The back features a corset that fits it perfectly to the curves of the body. Additionally, this dress can also be used with halter straps or spaghetti straps for a novel effect. All these versatile features allow you to choose the style that is perfect for your overall look.

Fluttering sleeves with A-line dress

A simple A-line wedding dress with no other features that stand-out, can instantly be updated with the simple addition of fluttering lace sleeves. This wispy sleeve style can add plenty of feminine appeal to any wedding gown and it is perfect if you seek a simple enchanting element that can alter your entire look. Another good thing about these sleeves are that they add the required coverage and support, while not looking too modest, if you do not want to be drowned in layers of fabric. Here is a dress from the Jasmine wedding collection that features this style element.

The T162067 from Best for Bride features a snug A-line silhouette with a beautiful sweetheart bodice and lace details. The most noticeable feature of this gown, however, is the fluttering sleeves that form a V-neckline over a sweetheart bodice. The sheer sleeves have pretty lace motifs on it, which makes it all the more attractive. Although a simple dress, that isn’t too poufy, it is one with a statement style, and this makes it truly unique.

Dropped draped waist

Not all brides have the ideal figure to carry off a dropped waistline. It is usually the penchant of those brides with a perfect hourglass figure, or a slender waist. The dropped waist is not a style that flatters tall brides, as it further elongates the torso. So, this is not a regular on the wedding scene. So, when it appears, it is a welcome change, and one that is remarkable. While dropped waists can be done in various ways, draped dropped waists are striking. See what we mean here.

The F161054 is a dress from the Jasmine wedding collection, and features the dropped waist feature. Here, a sweetheart bodice is accented with crisp, draped details that end in a dropped waist on one side. Further the effect of the dropped waist is enhanced with additional styling using a sheer V-neckline with just the right amount of embellishments. The fact that this combination is attached to an A-line skirt makes it a simple silhouette that is both elegant and endearing. The drama of the entire dress extends to the back, where the illusion V-neckline is replicated, and is encrusted with necklace like details in concentric curves towards the central zipper. This is a classic beauty that is perfect for weddings held in houses of worship. It is also comfortable to wear and not too revealing.

Modest Modern Wedding dresses

Most modern wedding dresses are characterized by strapless necklines and fitted silhouettes. Not every bride feels comfortable in these typical dress designs, although they do not want a dated wedding dress style either.

While some brides personally prefer more coverage, others have to choose traditional features in their wedding dresses because of the setting in which they will be wed. Some religious places of worship require that brides avoid exposing their shoulders in their wedding dress.

However, having to dress modestly doesn’t mean that such brides shouldn’t look stylish or modern. There are plenty of dresses that provide sufficient coverage, even while they are stylish, and not matronly or boring.

Brides who want a wedding dress with a high neckline, covered arms and back have the following options.

  • Choose a dress from the available designer collections. Although many leading designers have designs that show off the neck, shoulders, back and arms, they also have dresses that have conservative features.
  • Customize an available dress with extra fabric by adding sleeves or raising the neckline.
  • Add an accessory like a bolero or jacket to alter the neckline and sleeves as desired.

Today, we will look at the first option in detail. Here, we bring you some fantastic dress choices from our extensive inventory, that are bound to fit the description of “Modest Modern.” Take a look, and tell us which of these is your favorite.

1.Mori Lee 5410

A beautiful lace gown with cap-sleeves and an illusion scalloped bateau neckline, the Mori Lee 5410 is a dress that is both modest and endearing. The modified A-line silhouette is a modern choice that makes it suitable for most body types. Although the silhouette isn’t too snug like a fit-and-flare dress, it still allows the bride to flaunt her beautiful curves without feeling uncomfortable. The ample lace appliques in the bodice add a luxurious touch to the entire gown, spilling into random clusters in the skirt all the way down to floor length. Behind the illusion style neckline is a sweetheart bodice. The back of the dress features amazing illusion details, created with lace appliques. Although it a dress that covers the entire body from neck to toe, it is still stylish and sexy. The vintage feel associated with this gown makes it a perfect choice for a rustic wedding fashioned after a vintage-era.

2.Mori Lee 5403

The fitted T-shirt sleeves offer ample coverage, while they still look mysterious and sexy. The lace overlay extends throughout the bodice and ends at the waist, from where a pleated skirt with layers of soft netting falls to floor length. The differentiation in the textures of the bodice and the skirt is so beautiful, that it almost looks like the dress is made of two different pieces. Illusion details continue at the back of the dress, over a V-neckline with a strand of fabric buttons at the center. The wispy skirt and the textured bodice create a unique look for this dress. This dress is a perfect balance of traditional and modern.

Although the dress doesn’t have sleeves, the high illusion bateau neckline gives it the modest touch it deserves. Princess seams run along the fit and flare silhouette, and are another classic element that define the structured silhouette making it even more endearing. The rich and tasteful elegance of the lace motifs, placed artistically over the entire dress, and the 3-D effect crafted out of the lace over the satin slip add to its charm. At the back is a rounded scoop neckline, that can easily be covered under a veil.

A modern fit and flare gown with a sheer illusion neckline that suppports and extends into an elegant capsleeve with lace motifs on the edges, the Y21512 is a ravishing beauty from the Sophia Tolli collection.

At the back, the illusion style continues, with the central zipper trimmed with diamante beaded buttons along the center. This is a dress that has elements of both contemporary style and classic elegance.

5.Sophia Tolli Y21442

This fishtail gown from the Sophia Tolli collection has a unique style for the neckline and sleeves.

The entire bodice is embellished with elaborate floral lace appliques, decorated with crystal beading and sparkling details. As the clusters grow sparse in the skirt, layers of fine tulle fan out to form a cascading train of chapel length. The V-neckline in the front extends in a similar fashion to the back, but it reveals no more than a little skin along the center.

6.Sophia Tolli Y11413

This dress is both glamorous and sophisticated, even as it looks and feel comfortable on a confident bride. The gentle floral details of lace frame cap sleeves and continue into a classic V-neckline framed by a sweetheart bodice.

The marriage of tulle in the skirt and embellished lace details in the bodice is interesting, and is done very tastefully.

Most popular wedding dress necklines for different body types

We have often talked about the importance of choosing a wedding dress that flatters your body shape. While you should make this a priority for an amazing bridal look, there are more dress aspects that you should pay attention to.

After the silhouette, the next most important factor that can make or break your wedding day look is the neckline. Since the neckline sits so close to the face, you should get it right. The right neckline will enhance your facial features and balance out the proportions of your neck and shoulders.

The dress neckline is a major style factor that determines the overall impact of a dress. Thus, you can easily tie your look to the wedding theme by choosing the right wedding dress neckline that complements it.

Join me as I take a look at the all-time favorites in bridal gown necklines for different body types, in the dresses from our collection at Best for Bride. As we explore this dress feature in detail in various dress styles, don’t forget to make a note of your favorites for when you go wedding dress shopping!

Trending and glamorous off-the-shoulder neckline

Immortalized in classic fairy tales like Beauty and the Beast, this timeless favorite has been an ongoing hit in the wedding world. It has a playful vibe, even while it is feminine and classic. This neckline bares the shoulders, as it extends across the bust and fits along the arms. The best thing about the off-the-shoulder neckline is that it looks good with sleeves of any length. Additionally, it looks amazing on most types of fabric including lace. Take a look at this article on the Brides website for more insight into this wedding dress feature. 

The off-the-shoulder neckline suits most body types, except the inverted triangle. The pear-shaped body has a heavy and broad upper torso, that is best camouflaged for a balanced look. Unfortunately, the off-the-shoulder neckline draws attention to this very area. Hence it is best avoided by brides with this body type. Similarly it doesn’t flatter women with thick and short necks, as it draws attention to this part of their body.

The dress seen here is from the Sans Pareil collection. The pairing of its off-the-shoulder neckline with cap sleeves and a thick ball gown skirt creates a silhouette that has signature fairytale charm.

Glamorous and stylish single shoulder strap

The one-shoulder neckline is an asymmetrical dress element that instantly enhances the glamour quotient of the dress. It features just one shoulder strap, while the other side has a strapless neckline detail. It reminds us of Grecian goddesses and it is a statement element in a bridal look. Dresses with single shoulder draping or straps are widely favored for destination weddings, as the impact of this element is just right for a beach wedding.

 

One shoulder wedding gowns can have a draped single shoulder detail, or it may present as a simple shoulder strap that is an extension of the strapless style. The asymmetrical nature of this style element doesn’t suit the inverted body type as it draws focus to the chest and decolletage. Since it highlights the neck, it is also best avoided by brides with thick necks and no distinct collar bones.

The dress in the image above is from the Sophia Tolli collection. Paired with a mermaid silhouette, this dress brings together many elements that look great in a beach ambiance. It is also glamorous, with its lush scattering of embellishments. This renders it ideal for an opulent theme as well.

Classic scoop for all body types

Simple but universally flattering, the scoop or round neckline is suitable for almost every body type. The depth of this neckline can range from high to low, and the effect it creates varies accordingly. The scoop is a naturally rounded shape, and according to the dimensions it takes can enhance the body features of the bride. While a low-cut scoop draws attention to shapely collar bones and the neck, a high scoop conceals this area. The scoop when cut low, will reveal a hint of cleavage and accentuate the sex appeal of the dress.


Featured in this picture is a Sans Pareil wedding gown with wide scoop neckline, that frames a sweetheart bodice. The rounded nature of the neckline creates a balanced look and draws attention to the collar bones, neck and chin. This type of neckline when combined with sleeves is naturally slimming. It diverts attention upwards from the waist and hips, hence making it a good choice for apple and pear-shaped brides. Scoop necklines with half-length sleeves can make a thin bride look very slim, and are best avoided by rectangle-shaped body types.

Never-fail V-neckline

The V-neckline may have risen and fallen in terms of depth over the years. However it is still going strong in the wedding fashion scene. There is a subtle sexy element attached to this neckline, whether it is kept high or low. This is probably why it is a favorite choice for many brides.

 

In recent years, the V-neckline has plunged low to reveal more than what can is a modest dose of cleavage. Many bold brides who want to show off their bold and confident style in their wedding dress choice have embraced this trend. Whether paired with long sleeves, straps or barely-there sleeves, the V-neckline is a romantic and feminine style element with few contenders.

Here is a Mori lee wedding dress with cap sleeves that continue into a splendid V-neckline. The textured bodice with heavily embellished lace extends into a V-neckline that is both charming and sexy.

Bateau neckline that works for all

Shaped like a boat, the bateau neckline is a universal favorite that flatters all body types. This style extends from one shoulder to the other, barely revealing the collar bones. Although the neckline is modest, it is elegant and sophisticated. The only issue with this dress feature is that it draws attention to the neck. So, it is best avoided if you have a thick neck area and your collar bones aren’t visible. Also the raised nature of this neckline enhances the bust area. Hence, you may wish to avoid this neckline if you have a large bust and do not wish to draw attention to this part of your body. On the contrary, this neckline is well-suited for brides with small or average busts as it emphasizes these proportions.

This Sans Pareil dress features a bateau neckline over a sweetheart bodice with T-shirt sleeves. The neckline adds a demure, feminine touch to the classic wedding gown, and it draws attention to the facial features. This neckline is also a good option to consider if you want to avoid a necklace, but draw focus to a pair of stunning earrings in your outfit.

All-time favorite—the sweetheart

The sweetheart neckline is feminine and romantic. It closely follows the contours of the bust and resembles the upper half of a heart shape. There is a dip in the center, and the depth of it determines the amount of cleavage that it reveals. Sweetheart necklines are a bridal favorite, and are popular in many bridal collections. This neckline detail may come with straps or hold up on its own. The final look is very different in either case. This style looks best on women with average bust sizes, as it is revealing on women with heavy tops. It doesn’t always sit well on women with small busts. Since this type of neckline reveals the neck and decolletage, it draws attention to the upper torso. However, the extent of embellishments will also determine the overall impact of this neckline.

Here is a Sans Pareil wedding dress which features a classic sweetheart neckline. You can see how the embellishments on it add to the texture and beautifully complements the fitted waistband. The upper half of the dress is just as appealing as the elaborate peplum lace details and the heavily layered skirt that it continues into.

Retro-inspired halter neckline

Although the halter doesn’t work well for all body types, it is a style element with no parallel. This dress style exudes confidence and is youthful and exciting. The factor that it offers modest coverage in the front, only to reveal an open back makes it unusually charming. In the absence of sleeves and shoulder straps, the top is simply held up by straps that fasten at the back of the neck.


This dress feature works wonders for hourglass and straight body types. However it is best avoided by pear-shaped women. This is because the neckline doesn’t look good on narrow shoulders. It further accentuates the effect of the hips and makes the rounded nature of this area very obvious. It is difficult to pair this neckline with a bra. Hence, you should consider this factor when choosing this dress style.

The beautiful Mori Lee dress in the image here has pretty illusion details on a halter neckline. The embellishments are very bridal and add a feminine touch to the dress style.

The elusive illusion neckline

There is an unbeatable charm for a sheer neckline embellished with scintillating embroidery and lace effects. Illusion necklines are very popular in the bridal world, for they have a soft charm and the embellishments add sparkle to the bridal look. Illusion necklines are often seen over a sweetheart or strapless bodice, and draw attention to the neck and decolletage area. Although they offer coverage, they are distinctly sexy and very feminine in effect. This type of neckline is universally flattering, and is suitable for women of all shapes and sizes. It can also come with or without sleeves, and the effect is dramatically different in each of the cases.

This neckline can take on any shape, including the bateau and scoop. The best thing about this style is that the simple presence of a layer or sheer renders a strapless dress suitable for a traditional wedding setting. Hence, brides who have church weddings often prefer this neckline over a strapless gown. Take a look at this article on the Bridal Extravaganza Show to understand why this style is huge in wedding fashion. 

Notice how the ethereal illusion neckline layer adds sophistication and charm to this beautiful Sans Pareil dress seen here! What could just look like another sweetheart ball gown receives a dose of modesty as well as sparkle with the simple addition of an illusion layer that extends into soft cap sleeves.

While the previous dress had simple illusion details, here is one that stands out. This dress from the Mori Lee collection features an illusion layer over a sweetheart bodice. The sheer fabric is richly embellished with a fine scattering of jewels. You can also see how the strategic placement of the details in the neckline eliminates the need for a necklace.

While there are more necklines like the portrait, Queen Anne, strapless and square styles, the ones we discussed here have been quite popular on the wedding fashion scene over the last couple of years. As the modern bride’s interests change over time, so does her choices in various dress features. Nonetheless, some trends stand the test of time, and these necklines we discussed fit the bill.
