One of the most distinctive wedding dress trends of 2022 is the high collar or mock necks, which offers a sophisticated and regal neckline to the bride-to-be. With a definite nod to modest eras, this neckline has been beautifully reimagined with a fresh and creative style that makes this trend reign supreme! 

plunging expectations
