Have your eye on glamorous strapless wedding dresses for your best day ever? We totally get it. This flattering and feminine silhouette made iconic by Hollywood royalty like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly—is an ultra-romantic way to show off your bodice and décolletage while still looking polished and formal. Keep scrolling for our rundown of trends and styles!
Why are strapless wedding dresses so popular?
An elegant strapless wedding gown is designed to show off your neckline and décolletage. It also keeps focus on your face and flatters curvier body types such as apple, pear, or hourglass. Plus, it’s one of the most versatile necklines in bridalwear.
Dress it up with statement jewelry, long gloves, and a cape or shrug. Or, keep it soft and effortless with delicate flourishes and a minimalist hairstyle. Either will make you feel like total royalty.
How do I accessorize a strapless wedding dress?
Because of their simple bust and neckline, strapless bridal gowns are easy to style with a headpiece, necklace, veil, statement earrings, jacket, or cape. Hair-wise, you also have plenty of options. Wear it up to feel polished or loose for a romantic bohemian vibe. The strapless neckline makes virtually any style look chic and intentional.
The only specialty item you’ll have to pay attention to is your bridal undergarments; you’ll need the perfect strapless bra, corset, or shapewear to make everything look smooth and impeccable.
