The One Shoulder Dress…

One-shoulder trend is definitely up to its popularity and it’s ‘in’ right now for a modern fashion-forward style brides. It has modest appeal, it creates a sense of glamour, and also highlight your bone structure around your décolletage.

We love this trend as it gives a certain flare to the classic white long dress. The whole point of a wedding dress is to make you look outstanding and one of a kind. One of the many qualities or advantages we can find in one-shoulder gowns is the comfort factor.

Classic and elegant choice, Pronovias Emporium – such a lovely detail!

Neckline flatters most body types to showing off the shoulders and collarbone in a brilliant way.

If you're a fan of strapless wedding dresses, we recommend trying on a few one-shoulder styles on as well. It's a similar, but more modern, look, and provides a bit more flattering coverage than the standard strapless. Plus, it's available on a variety of wedding gown styles, from A-line to ballroom.

The style of one-shouldered dresses remains a beautiful style for wedding dresses since the age of ancient Greece togas

We normally advise our bride-to-be the beautiful way to complement the asymmetrical neckline is with a soft chignon, pulled off centre to the opposite side of the single shoulder strap. It creates a subtle pleasing visual balance to the dress and also ensures that your hairstyle will not hide the cut of the dress. Keep your bridal hair jewellery simple and modern with this style; a beautiful crystal brooch tucked into the chignon will be perfect.

The dramatic asymmetrical necklines can also be softened with pleats which is commonly known as the 'Grecian Goddess' style. One  important tips to wow your guests - wear a one-shoulder dress with a large flower on the shoulder: it’s asymmetrical, yet all the components work together harmoniously. On this particular dress, chiffon is a budget friendly option.
