Wedding Dresses with a Sweetheart Neckline

When you imagine a trendy, yet classic wedding dress for your big day, what do you picture? Chances are, it somehow incorporates a sweetheart neckline. This style dominates whimsical and sensual dresses alike. It can take many forms but, in general, mimics the curves typically found atop a heart shape.

Highly flattering and versatile, the sweetheart look is sometimes referred to as a princess neckline because of the royal aesthetic it delivers. A traditional approach takes over with Moonlight's Style H1524, but it can also become a bit more daring with an illusion plunge, as seen with Style H1482. A modest option known as the semi-sweetheart is also available. All three looks are stunning sleeveless, strapless, with spaghetti straps, or with cap sleeves.

About Our Sweetheart Neckline Wedding Dresses

Few necklines are as flattering or as alluring as the classic sweetheart look. This is an especially popular approach among brides who want to highlight their décolletage. It also appeals to those who want to create the illusion of a fuller bust.

Straps can be added to provide extra support and make brides feel confident while walking down the aisle — and hitting up the dance floor. Some sweetheart wedding dresses even have long sleeves or just one shoulder.

At Moonlight Bridal, we are pleased to offer a wide variety of gorgeous gowns with sweetheart necklines. Some are simple and elegant, while others are downright extravagant. Our favorites include:

  • Style T936. Sleek and sensual, this flirty number is sure to turn heads. This regal crepe gown pairs a sweetheart neckline with an illusion open back, all while hugging the bride's curves with a mermaid silhouette.
  • Style J6831. Straight out of a romance novel, this A-line wedding dress highlights the power of the illusion neckline. Off-the-shoulder floral lace sleeves, a tulle skirt and a stunning sweep train add to the head-over-heels effect.

  • Style H1490. This ethereal look takes the mermaid wedding dress to the next level. It's designed to hug every curve — and the sweetheart neckline plays an important role in this endeavor. Other highlights include 3D lace appliques, a cathedral train and an illusion open back.

If the sheer range of dresses highlighted above is any indication, the sweetheart neckline is one of the most versatile bridal gown features available. Hence, its enduring popularity.
