When looking for a dress you hear a lot about the fabric type and shape of the dress. You hear about sweetheart necklines and A-line skirts. At the end of the day the part of the dress that your guests have spent the most time looking at is the back! Designers are realizing the desire for dramatic and eye-catching wedding dress backs, and creating artistic masterpieces!
While you are standing in the front of the church, or slow dancing to your first song, your back is the number one viewed part of your dress, so why not enhance it a bit! Decades ago, wedding dresses were strictly long sleeves and highly conservative. Now, brides are having more fun with their dresses and finding attire to truly reflect their personalities. You can find sexy and low backed wedding dresses as shown in the Jenny Packham dresses.
Don't think you have to go bare to have a dramatic back view- laces, jewels and rouching can add to an interesting design. If you know you are sporting a dramatic back I suggest focusing on this area when you are doing your bridal boot camp workout prior to the wedding. The fabric hangs just right, so you can't help feeling beautiful in these dresses.
While these backless designs might be a new idea for you I would encourage you to try one on, you will be surprised at the statement you will make! If you want to stay a bit more conservative for your church wedding, save this style for your reception dress! Change into it after the wedding and show your sexier side (preparing for the honeymoon of course!)
