Halter Wedding Dresses Basics and Recommendations


Aside from the groom, the wedding dress tends to be the most important decision for the bride to make. It is the one key piece to the brides dream wedding that will make her fairytale come to life. While you may know about the different silhouettes from an A-line to a mermaid dress, there are plenty of different fabrics, necklines and more that you will want to consider when choosing your perfect dress. In this article, we will cover all you need to know about halter wedding dresses.

Basic Things About Halter Wedding Dresses

The neckline can be one of the most remarkable details about your wedding dress and there are plenty of options to choose from. Sweetheart, scooping, V-neck, portrait necklines and more can all be designed with a halter top. The halter neckline refers to straps that wrap around the neck leaving a more open back. It can be more sexy with its deep armholes and almost backless design. Halter dresses are most often favored among fashion lovers and many celebrities.

The Straps

Straps of the halter dress can be thick or thin and can be considered formal or casual. They can be bare and straight or embellished with stones or embroidery. The shape of the neckline can mimic the cut of the straps, making the dress be the perfect fit for those with big or small busts.

Body Types and Embellishments

Those with more narrow shoulders will find that a halter style dress with a smaller space inside the neck and wide straps compliments their figure elegantly. Most halter dresses you find will be made from a satin fabric and the neckline is often decorated with pearls or beads and glittered details, adding a hint of glamor.
