If you've found that a halter-style top suits you, feel free to wear the cut on your big day. Leaping out of your comfort zone is great and all, but there's definitely value in knowing what looks good on you and what makes you feel most like yourself! A quick scroll on Pinterest will reveal that there's a bridal gown in virtually any style, so it's just a matter of lurking around long enough to find a design that speaks to you. Plus, even after you've found that, you can still head over to a trusted designer to customize your look even more. That said, you can totally co-opt your love for halter tops for bridal purposes—scrap the proverbial sweetheart neckline if it's not your thing. Just figure out the silhouette, fabric, and embellishments that you'll want, then you'll be good to go!
We've done some clicking around on Pinterest for you. Here, 13 gorgeous halter-style wedding frocks you'll want to wear for your wedding:
1. For a clean, immaculate look, go for a smooth sheath frock with an elegant lace bodice. Notice how the patter of the lace doesn't swirl around in blooms: The simple, linear pattern keeps the dress simple and understatedly regal. The cuff around the neck also adds a lovely touch.
2. Tulle, organza, and all other sheer fabrics are still all the rage, and for good reason. They can instantly make a gown appear ethereal and dreamy, no matter the volume. This bridal gown features a sultry halter top in floral lace, and a ball gown skirt voluminized with princessy S-wave ruffles. It's dramatic and fashion-forward.
3. Good news, you don't need to decide between a flattering v-neckline and a halter-style cut! Go for a triangular top that curves all the way down to your waist. Balance out the sharpness of the bodice with a classic full skirt.
4. Not a fan of lace and silk? Consider frosted tulle, a crinkly, slightly glittery fabric that is sheer enough to yield a sultry finish. Hit refresh on the usual neckline and opt to have a massive frothy ribbon around your neck. Cinch the dress with a subtle belt.
5. Ornate and vintage-inspired, this dress is unique without going overboard. The busy lace details are not gaudy, because they bloom against nude lining that suits the model's skin tone. So, if you want a highly-detailed lace gown, consider a nude undertone; such details in true white may tend to appear stuffy. The nude lining, however, gives a fairy-like sheer effect.
6. No frills here, just impeccable tailoring. A flawlessly constructed dress devoid of embellishments and ornamentations can be just as stunning as an extravagant gown. This particular dress will accentuate your collarbones and give you a lithe look. So classy!
7. Aiming for a bit of Old Hollywood glamour? Try a smooth fishtail dress that abruptly cuts into crystal-studded illusion netting. That perfect diagonal where the two textures meet is the focal point of this dress—you won't need fancy jewelry anymore.
8. This dress has pockets, and that should be all the convincing you need! A deviation from the others on this list, this frock has a deliberately off-kilter silhouette, making it akin to a comfy pair of aladdin pants. If you'd like a unique, never-before-seen style, consider this fashionable look!
9. Go back to the classics with an old-timey mermaid silhouette lace frock. This one, however, is given an edge by the plunging cut out, and the sheer finish of the skirt from the knee down.
10. Channel a Greek goddess and don a hybrid gown. This particular frock combines a jumpsuit and a gown, as well as lace and chiffon. It's a reworking of the traditional elements into an edgy shape.
11. Don't forget about the back details! This lacy number boasts of a sultry open back, framed by semi-sheer lace straps and a slim bow. It's reminiscent of a dancer's costume, which gives the dress more personality.
12. Maximally bohemian, this gown toys with the idea of a halter neckline by way of a lace neckpiece visually joined to the bodice by way of gold jewelry. You could also opt to merge the two with embellished illusion netting. The attached bell sleeves add drama to the whole look.
13. Last but not the least, we have this traditional ball gown with a big frothy skirt. You have classic floral lace, plenty of tulle, and a modest halter neckline. You could add your own spice to this look by way of a customized backless cut, or even separate sleeves.
