From the Neck Down

One of the most exciting perks of a bride-to-be is trying on those gorgeous dresses!  I know I dreamed of the day I would get to see my daughters choose THE dress. I thought it was fun. We set aside a Saturday when all three of us could go. Yes, without sister, there can be no cheering section. After five or six gowns, it gets old for the tryer onner.  In fact, it can get frustrating.  So here is my suggestion.  Try on different types of gowns in very broad categories and narrow what appeals to you or looks the most fabulous.  Think neckline, skirt line, fabric, embellishments, and train.  Here are some real brides in real dresses.  Let's start with the neckline. Yes, there are other dresses besides strapless!

All of the dresses pictured are available at The Green Hanger Shop.  Now, what neckline have I left out?  Please tell me your favorite.

Thank you! You are so right! I found one halter dress and it is a very popular choice. I added it to the post. What others did I miss?

Hi, I am visiting you from SITS.
Beautiful Dresses!
And yes, everyone who has a sister cheer leading section needs her along for every important life decision. :) I know that my Sis is always there during those times. SUCH a blessing- Mommy's too, because Mom's are the Best cheer leaders of all.

My favorite is the halter. So pretty. I also like that off the shoulder one too. Just glanced at the other answers and I see halters are very popular in your poll! How interesting!

Visiting from SITs.

I had a different neckline than these you have shown. It was sort of scooped but with a higher collar. Not sure what you call that!
