The boat neck wedding gown is undoubtedly probably the most sophisticated, timeless neckline of all of them. Also called the bateau neckline ('bateau' is French for 'boat'), a ship neckline looks instantly elegant on any bridal gown silhouette. It sits high on the chest, having a wide opening to skim your collarbones and also the tops of the shoulders. The boat neckline was very popular throughout the '40s, '50s, and '60s, therefore we especially like it if you're right into a demure, retro-inspired look. Boat necklines in many cases are paired with streamlined satin wedding gowns, tea-length styles, cap sleeves, and ball gown silhouettes.
