One of our favourite wedding dress trends of the moment is the versatile illusion neckline, which manages to be both soft and feminine while also discretely sexy.

Illusion designs are super flattering because they add a little extra coverage. A great alternative to the classic strapless wedding dress, the sheer fabric also means beaded details or lace appliqués appear to float beautifully on the skin.

Limitless when it comes to style, an illusion neckline combined with lace details will add a romantic, vintage feel, can provide light coverage for arms and shoulders or give structure to a barely-there open back. Check out three of our faves below to see what we mean…

True romance

Bronwyn is a beautiful vintage-style design with a classic ballgown silhouette. The delicate illusion back is guaranteed to wow your guests as you walk down the aisle.

Well fitted

This dress's pretty lace illusion straps discretely soften the look of the figure-hugging mermaid design and plunging back.

A classic love story

Finally, the combination of a plunging illusion neckline and demure lace sleeves in this design is a subtly sexy combo. You'll fall in love all over again!
