Sweetheart necklines show off an elegant neck
Don’t only consider your curves the main asset to flaunt when choosing a wedding dress. If you have elegant collar bones or a long, swanlike neck, these are two delicate areas you should highlight with your wedding dress. “Sweetheart necklines add a soft, feminine touch to gowns and are perfect for the bride who would like to subtly showcase her décolletage,” says Ericka Hanson, Associate Bridal Buyer at David’s Bridal. Here’s how to keep your neck looking great as you age.

Thick straps are must for busty women
If you have a larger chest, don’t stress about finding a dress that can accommodate your breasts—just choose one with thick straps. “Thick straps are a great option for brides who need support for a fuller bust, especially if they plan to dance the night away,” Hanson says. And what if you happen to fall in love with a sleeveless dress or one with spaghetti straps? No problem: It’s extremely easy for a tailor to add thick straps later. Don’t know if it’s OK to ask for alterations? Here are your wedding etiquette questions answered.
