One thing you must consider when shopping for your special bridal gown is what the back of the dress looks like and what features you would like to see there. Do not forget that as you walk down the aisle this is what everyone will be seeing! If you want to wear your hair down in a loose style, then do not opt for a highly intricate back design as the detail will all be missed, and your hair could get caught in the beading. Consider wearing your hair up high to make the most of your gown.
From our signature Morilee collection we love Blaire style number 2301, an embroidered net fit and flare gown. The back features delicate, sheer, bead lined cross-over straps with keyhole cut-out and satin covered bridal buttons.
From our signature collection again, we bring you 2174, Anastasia. A modern princess look with deep plunging neckline, long sheer sleeves, sheer side cut-outs and opulently beaded appliques. The back for us really is the showstopper here! It has a sheer back with embroidered appliques, satin covered bridal buttons and a double layered train that really will take your guests breath away.
A playful gown is Allegra, style 2178. It really has a surprise in store at the back with its detachable streamers! Definitely something for the bride who wants something different that no one has seen before.
Another sheer, embroidered back can be found on Adele, style 5867. We love this highly elaborate design which really stands out from the plain satin skirt.
Artemis, style 5871 is our soft, flowing net A-line gown with deep plunging neckline. What makes it stand out from other gowns is its highly detailed embroidered pebble straps, and cut-out back. We love it! Aisha, style 5868 and 6933 Alex are other lovely example of this detail.
Finally, we couldn’t do a feature on backs without introducing you to Amy, style 5875 from our Blu collection. Amy is a non-fussy Larissa Satin A-line with classic V-neckline and straps. To the back it has a massive detachable bow! Our brides love this dress, and it is a classic shape which works well on both small and larger sizes. Another great look with pebble straps is Brenda, style 2309 or if you like the idea of a keyhole back take a look at Annaliese style 2187. For more dresses featuring bows check out 6942 Brandy and 6931 Ava.
We hope this has reminded you not to neglect looking at the backs of dresses as you shop. Don’t forget to speak to your photographer about the details of the dress you love and want to capture in your photos. Good luck in your hunt for the dream wedding dress.
