Illusion Wedding Dress

Wedding dresses with an illusion neckline feature a panel of sheer fabric on the bodice that often extends from the waistline or bust up to the collar.

The sheer fabric - usually lace, tulle or organza - is often decorated with lace, appliques, beading or a combination of embellishments that can give the illusion they are ‘floating’ or sitting directly onto the skin - check out this sexy Justin Alexander fit-n-flare wedding dress to see what we mean.

Illusion necklines work well on most styles of wedding dress and cover the spectrum from subtly sheer to super sexy and dramatic, making them ideal for achieving a strapless feel with as much - or as little - coverage as you like.

Confident brides looking for something daring but delicate should consider Enzoani’s illusion neckline wedding dresses, such as the full-length ‘Melinda’ mermaid gown. This jaw-dropping design features an unlined illusion bodice that has been skilfully adorned with intricate beaded lace embellishments, a low illusion V-back is accented and crystal buttons.

For a prettier option with more coverage, Maggie Sottero’s romantic A-line ‘Freesia’ gown features an illusion neckline adorned with delicate swirls of pearls, Swarovski crystals and beaded embroidery, balanced by a dreamy tulle skirt embellished with lustrous beading.
