One-shoulder Wedding Dress

One-shoulder wedding dresses feature a diagonal neckline that can be flattering on brides with broader shoulders and a bigger bust. The asymmetrical design will draw your guests’ eyes to the top of your dress, creating visual interest and helping to show off sculpted shoulders.

Wedding dresses featuring a one-shoulder design offer a memorable design element that can be both sexy and sophisticated across a variety of fabrics and silhouettes. Sophia Tolli has struck just that balance with the understated style of this breathtaking ‘Sissy’ organza wedding gown. Silky organza, draped asymmetrically across the bodice, adheres to a crystal hand-beaded single strap to create a one-shoulder design that becomes a gorgeous design feature on the rear of the dress.

This Morilee by Madeline Gardner organza mermaid gown even offers the best of both worlds; a removable ruffled shoulder strap sits atop a delicately beaded asymmetrically pleated bodice, giving brides versatility throughout the day and into the evening.

Brides who have already decided on a side-swept hairstyle for their big day will also find that a one-shoulder wedding gown is a fantastic option as it will balance out the asymmetric style of the hair and dress without covering any of the all-important design elements.
