I would say a halter. I have always heard that girls with bigger shoulders should avoid strapless and thin straps. Idk how accurate that is, but I know my cousin just got married and she has very big shoulders and is very tall, and the halter looked GORGEOUS on her. Good Luck!

I would just try on different styles and see what you like best and feel most comfortable in. I’m sure whatever you pick will be beautiful! I’m a sucker for wedding dresses! I love them all, just not on me!

I think most halters tend to not flatter girls with broad shoulders.  I think it tends to emphasize them, because you are basically covering up the middle part of your chest and showing only your shoulders.  I think strapless or thick straps would be best (not spaghetti)…you could maybe even do a thicker one shoulder strap dress.

@Mimi: those are GORGEOUS!!!

I agree with the halter making your shoulders actually look larger.  The front and back deep V line is a great idea, I think.

I am also a broad and muscley bride and I found that sweetheart necklines were the best on me – Halters, straight across strapless and speghetti straps make me look like a tank!

Try on different necklines and you will see what works best for you very quickly!
