Wedding dresses that are even more gorgeous from the back

Illusion

A huge trend for 2016, wedding dresses with low-cut illusion backs really are this year’s big thing. We’re seeing lots of lace, 3D embellishment and hand-embroidered detail paired with mesh or other lightweight sheer material.

Backless

Put all those hours in the gym to good use and show off your figure in a revealing backless or plunging wedding dress.

Complice-Stalo Theodorou’s gown show how backless doesn’t have to mean overly sexy, their dress featuring a rose pink ribbon paired with pretty cut outs and lace embellishment is innocent and feminine, a row of buttons down the back completes the look.

Drama queen

Bold pattern, colour and the Watteau train can create quite an impact as the bride makes her way up the aisle.

The Daalarana Couture halterneck wedding dress is without doubt a show stopper with it’s full floral ball gown skirt finished off with a dramatic oversized bow.

Pretty as a picture

A pretty back can have the same impact as a dramatic one.

Show off delicate lace backs, cute ribbons, bows, and floral detail with a messy updo – perfect for a boho bride.

Beaded

Probably the biggest trend of the year beading, bling and gemstones can be seen right across the board on bridal wear collections.

The beaded crisscross back in the Rosa Clara gown is beautiful way to show off your back while keeping quite covered up at the same time.
