One of my most favorite current wedding dress trends has to be the illusion neckline. It is a very feminine look while also being subtly sexy and alluring. Many of the illusion neckline dresses have intricate lace detailing, so it can be easy to assume that they would break the bank. Yet I am happy to tell you that I have found 10 gorgeous wedding dresses with beautiful illusion necklines all under $1,500 (many of them being under $1,000).
Pairing jewelry with an illusion neckline wedding dress can seem complicated because large long necklaces are pretty much not an option. It is possible to have fun with soft small necklaces that are short and close to the neck, though you could forgo a necklace altogether and focus on earrings. Since you wouldn't be wearing a statement necklace you could wear large jeweled earrings that add a bit of sparkle to your look. This way you can still have fun with jewels without taking away from your gorgeous illusion neckline wedding dress!
