Wedding Dress Trends: All About The Back

Gorgeous backs are what many brides are looking for in their wedding dress. Brides are now looking beyond the bodice when choosing their perfect wedding dress. Whether it’s a sexy low plunging back, a stained glass illusion back, or a beaded embroidered back, these dresses do not disappoint in any given angle. I’ve chosen a few stunning designs to illustrate this trend.

SABRINA DAHAN is a California bridal designer who launched her debut collection this past October. With an impeccable design technique and precision stemming from her years as one of the lead designers at Monique Lhuillier, brides can look forward to beautiful, handmade couture options. The debut collection was inspired by her new love as Sabrina is a bride-to-be herself. The couture shapes and fabrications are exciting, romantic, and effortless, mirroring the experience from when she first fell in love.


CLAIRE PETTIBONE is known for her vintage yet modern signature style. Her couture collection, “The Gilded Age,” embodies her vision of vintage romance with an enchanted bohemian spirit. Claire’s gentle use of color, couture details, European laces, and graceful embroideries flutter and flow to make a woman look and feel like a goddess.


MOONLIGHT BRIDAL is one of the most prestigious names in the bridal industry. Since the brand’s inception in 1986, Moonlight has set out to create an experience that every bride fantasizes about, from the moment the gowns are put on to the day she walks down the aisle. Moonlight’s gowns are crafted starting with an incredible fit, the most luxurious fabrics, rich lace, and hand sewn Swarovski crystal details. Each gown sets out to accentuate the beauty of the individual brides.
