When shopping for a wedding dress, there are many things to consider. That said, you can start narrowing the pool of options by determining the silhouettes, fabrics and necklines you like the best.

You'll find that off-the-shoulder necklines grace all different wedding dress silhouettes, from streamlined sheaths to dramatic ball gowns, in an array of fabrics like lace, tulle, crepe, silk and more. You can also take your pick from thin straps, cap sleeves, long sleeves and even billowing puff sleeve shoulder-baring dresses. No matter your bridal style, there's an off-the-shoulder dress for you.
