Open back wedding dresses are bang on trend this season. It’s a seductive style that combines sexy allure with plenty of support and enough all-important coverage. So you can create a look that’s breathtakingly attractive but is still just the right side of revealing.
We’ve picked two of our favourite open back wedding dresses below, from our on-trend Signature Collection, to show you how to work the look…
If you want to stand out from the crowd then this sensational mermaid dress could be the one for you. Embellished with delicate pearls and intricate lace embroidery, this figure-flattering style is absolute perfection.
Tulle, lace and beading
The super soft tulle on the bodice is under-layered with cobweb lace and finished off with embroidered appliqués and delicate beading, giving it a sexy, modern vintage feel.
This open back wedding dress is a masterpiece of design. The illusion detailing on the shoulders and around the hips, frames the back beautifully. There are also flattering details, such as the row of elegant covered buttons and the stylish ruching above the train.
Layers of lace
Finally, the breathtaking train spills out from behind the dress in layers of gorgeous lace. What more could you ask for from a wow-factor wedding dress? If you love this look make sure you check out Wyatt and Galilea too, which both feature stunning open backs.
Archer is another wow-factor open back wedding dress from our Signature Collection. The figure-flattering crepe is perfect for showing off great curves, while the embroidered lace on the bodice is super pretty.
The perfect mix
The bodice is covered in a combination of cobweb lace and floral embroidered lace, giving it real depth. The dipped neckline is also perfectly offset by the wide straps, which are cut to flatter the tops of the arms.
The detailing in the lace is just exquisite and offers tantalising glimpses of skin while still giving plenty of coverage. We also love how the lace trails attractively down the top of the sleek crepe skirt, flattering the waist and the hips.
Turn around and there’s even more wow factor. This dress features a classic illusion back, framed with beautiful lace and with an elegant row of covered buttons. The lace is as pretty as a picture and continues down the skirt to beautiful effect. Wear this with our sparkling Solstice belt and our modern Deco comb tucked into a sleek updo, so you can show off the back in all its glory!
A sweeping statement
And did we mention the stunning lace cut-out train too? Sweeping majestically behind you, it will make a luxurious and contemporary statement. Pair it with our simple, satin-edged Loulou veil for the ideal mix of simple and intricate styling. For similar open back wedding dresses take a look at Atlas and Hayden too.
