When we ask our brides what their ideal wedding gown would look like we often hear them describe an open or sheer low back bridal gown. A dramatic back on your bridal gown is not only very on trend for 2017, but it is a fun and flirty addition to your look especially if the front is more conservative. Remember your back is often what most of your guests will see during your wedding ceremony so it is an element that should not be overlooked.
There are multiple ways to incorporate a dramatic back into your bridal gown and we have listed some of our favourites below!
A plunging, open low back bridal gown is the height of bridal fashion at the moment! Even if a gown is free of all other embellishments this feature will ensure you wow your guests as you make your way down the aisle. Showing off a lovely toned back can be quite sexy and is a great contrast to a gown with a higher neckline. This look can also be very feminine and romantic when done in a lace pattern. The outline of lace trailing down a bride’s back is simply gorgeous!
Creating the Illusion
While some brides feel completely comfortable exposing their backs in an open low back bridal gown, others may not. This doesn’t mean the latter should forgo a dramatic back! Many bridal designers are incorporating a sheer mesh into their low back bridal gowns. This is usually done when the designer has made a feature out of buttons on the back of a bridal gown. Most often these buttons will be crystal or pearl style adding to the elegance of the overall design. Mesh backs provide extra coverage but still give the illusion of a exposed, low back.
Dripping With Detail
Illusion lace is a high-fashion, bridal trend that has lasted throughout the seasons! In this style, lace is positioned over a sheer mesh, low back to give the illusion it is floating on your skin. Exquisitely detailed, a low illusion back wedding gown has it all. Not to mention this style looks beyond incredible in wedding photos.
The keyhole back is a growing trend in 2017! It is a different way to show off your back and makes for an interesting feature. It is a softer, more refined look than a plunging v-back. While still sexy, this more subtle open back would work well in a conservative setting.
As you can see the dramatic back is a style that every bride can feel fabulous in! This style allows for gorgeous wedding photos and ensures you look fantastic from every angle.
