Every bride wants to feel like a queen on her big day and theres no better way to achieve this than to wear a gorgeous wedding dress with a Queen Anne neckline. This stunning wedding dress neckline style first became popular thanks to Queen Anne, who ruled in Great Britain in the 1700s. According to the legends, a Queen Anne neckline was her favorite for her countless gowns and both royals and non-royals love this neckline style to this day. For instance, such icons of style as Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, wore Queen Anne wedding dresses on their wedding days.
If you watched the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, you already know what the Queen Anne neckline looks like. For centuries, Queen Anne neckline dresses came with a high collar in the back and a sweetheart, scoop or V-neck neckline in the front, but today brides have much more flexibility and the neckline looks a lot more modern. Additionally, today it is common to embellish Queen Anne wedding dresses with side panel cuts, drop waistlines and 3D appliques.
If you want your Queen Anne wedding dress to look flawlessly stylish, pair the famous neckline with a form-fitting silhouette. This way, the open neckline will balance out the curves in your figure to create a stunning look. Mermaid silhouette dresses are perfect for achieving this goal, although you can also choose other dresses that closely hug your figure. If you want your wedding dress to look a bit more modest, look for a style with long sleeves, as this will instantly add class to your look and make you look like a member of the royal family.
