Wedding Dress Trends: The Back View

Posted by Jeffra on Oct 28, 2011

Remembering that most of your guests will see your back throughout your wedding (at the altar, on the dance floor) you may want to choose a wedding gown with detail on the back of the dress.

In seasons past the back detail focused on the skirt and train, but this year designers focused on the entire back – from the nape of the neck to the edge of the skirt’s hem.

Back detailing included tulle embellished with beading or appliques, an all lace back of the bodice or bridal buttons streaming down in bright bridal white (or ivory).

So when you go to try on wedding dresses remember to look at yourself from both the front and back to see what view your guests will have.  Here are the back views of some of our favorite Spring 2012 gowns:
