There’s something indisputably chic and elegant about a high neck wedding dress. Versatile and flattering, a high neckline provides modesty and coverage when needed, making it perfect for a traditional church wedding or cold weather nuptials. However, it can also be incredibly stylish and alluring (hello, high-neck gowns that are made of sheer lace with dramatic keyhole backs).
Not totally sure whether you want a high neck wedding dress? There’s also plenty of in-between options to explore like an elegant boatneck or illusion neckline.
Whether you’re looking to channel your inner Meghan Markle with a halter neck style that hits at the collarbone (who can forget her second wedding dress designed by Stella McCartney?) or craving a dramatic high neck ballgown, there’s a high neck wedding gown for every bridal style – from traditional to fashion-forward. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites below.
