Illusion necklines!


Subtle, sweet and sophisticated, its no surprise that illusion necklines have become SO popular over the last couple of years and this elegant trend isn’t going anywhere. Often decorated with lace or beading, an illusion neckline helps maintain an ounce of modesty while keeping your gown delicate and mature. Illusion necklines will also add either straps or sleeves on to a dress, giving you extra support without adding unwanted bulkiness.

For a very natural look, you’ll want a ‘nude’ coloured illusion piece, or for slightly more contrast between your skin and the gown, go for an ivory coloured piece. Either option adds an elegant feature to any wedding dress.

Since a picture speaks a thousand words, let’s get right into some of our favourites…
