In some high neck wedding gowns, the neckline stops before or at the middle of the throat, while some go higher to almost reach the neck, nearly like turtleneck tops.  One famous high neckline wedding gowns is the gorgeous long-sleeve dress Grace Kelly wore in her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco.

12. Off-the-Shoulder Neckline Wedding Gowns

Here, the neckline fabric stays below the shoulders. The cut of this neckline goes across and around the collarbone, so that the top of the chest, the neck and collarbone areas are exposed. This neckline shows off the collarbone by featuring fabric that hits the arms below the shoulders, the arms of the dress hang or fall off from the shoulder, by design.  Note that there’s also a type of sleeves called “off-the-shoulder” sleeves, and that is different from off-the-shoulder neckline.

Here, it is the neckline that is off-shoulder.  This type of wedding dress neckline can come in any style of sleeves – long, short, even off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Suitable for: Off-the-Shoulder wedding gowns show off skin of  top-chest, arms,, some back skin; and so not suitable for brides who are not comfortable with revealing those parts of their body.
