2 Bateau Neckline Wedding Dresses for a Sophisticated Celebration


When it comes to selecting your wedding dresses, finding a look that speaks to your style is of the utmost importance. And while there are a lot of different options to choose from, one bridal look that’s been gaining popularity is the classy bateau neck gown. You may remember this silhouette worn by Meghan Markle, who famously rocked the neckline at her 2018 royal wedding to Prince Harry. Markle’s history-making Givenchy ceremony dress boasted ¾ sleeves, soft silk fabric, and most notably, a sophisticated boat neckline.


The sleek neckline is more modest than a V-neck or sweetheart, and the style typically comes with sleeves which means more coverage. Even so, there's a bateau gown for nearly every bridal style. While the look wasn’t as popular a few years back, more and more brides are now opting for this silhouette due to its elegant and timeless aesthetic.


From Meghan Markle-inspired wedding dresses to unique looks boasting boat necks, check out 2 of our favourite bateau neckline gowns. Based on rave reviews and reputable sellers, we can’t get enough of these captivating day-of looks.
