Square neck wedding dresses have been trending for a few seasons, and for very good reason: they flatter any figure (hello, collarbones) and add a dose of romance thanks to their Renaissance roots. While a square neck wedding dress can definitely look vintage—especially when paired with puff sleeves or an empire waist—it is actually one of the most versatile necklines around.

Square neck gowns with spaghetti straps and full tulle skirts are perfect for a black tie ball of a wedding, while fit-and-flare square neck frocks cut from floral lace are a boho bride's dream. In the market for a minimal and contemporary silhouette? You'll also find no shortage of modern dress styles with square necklines.

Model Nicola Peltz caused quite the buzz when she sported a custom square neck column gown by Valentino for her 2022 nuptials. For brides who loved this look, the good news is that thanks to designers like Savannah Miller, Justin Alexander and Olivia Bottega, you can capture that same iconic style for your own big day. Keep reading to discover 18 of our hand-picked favorites, then head to your local bridal salon to try on for yourself.

How to Choose the Best Square Neckline Wedding Dress For You

Ready to take your search for the perfect square neck dress to the next level? Here are a few of our top tips:

First, focus on the silhouette.

Because square necklines are available on so many silhouettes, it's easy to find an option that checks off all your boxes. We recommend finding a fit you love first, to help narrow your search. Don't worry, we've got a guide on that.

Sleeves or no sleeves?

Ah, the age-old question. While the decision to opt for a dress with sleeves or one without comes down to personal preference, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to help decide. For instance: Am I planning to spend a lot of time outdoors during the wedding? Will it be cold? Am I comfortable having my arms on display for all or part of the day? Regardless of your responses, there are plenty of square neck options to choose from.

Consider your desired amount of coverage.

Square neck gowns are known to highlight your collar bones (and even a bit of cleavage), so you'll want to think about your desired level of coverage while shopping. If you're looking for a more modest style, consider an option with a higher neckline or talk with your stylist about alterations that can be made to the bodice.
