As in nature, sometimes the most beautiful things are made so by asymmetry. These gorgeous gowns are, I think, especially eye-catching because of their single asymmetrical shoulder. For the bride who wants to be just a little bit different yet still wants to keep all the other aspects of a traditional gown, this look can be perfect. An asymmetrical neckline is also often very flattering to ones face, since our faces are rarely ever perfectly symmetrical. This look is also provides function, if you love a mostly strapless look but are worried about fit and want a little more security. Below are some of my favorite one shoulder gowns which range from a simple strap, to sculptural floral, to sheer lace, or a wide band of gathered organza. Which is your favorite?
