Your wedding is a day when you should look splendid in every way. While you may have chosen a great wedding dress with fantastic detailing on the bodice and skirt, have you paid attention to what is on the back of the dress? If you haven’t, you simply should! After all, your guests will be facing your back for quite some time, during your wedding ceremony..
Gone are the days when the back of a wedding dress was a simple corset or a closed zipper. Today, the trend is to look dramatic from every angle, including the back. Don’t worry about your veil getting in the way of looking glamorous from the back. Either keep it short, avoid it altogether, or take it off after the ceremony, so you can flaunt the gorgeous details at the back of your wedding dress.
As the TLC website mentions, wedding designers have been creative with crafting dramatic wedding dress backs, as this is what brides are after.
So, here are some of our favorites from the collection at Best for Bride, to inspire you. Get ready to swoon!
Mon Cheri Sophia Tolli Y21519
This masterpiece from the Sophia Tolli collection uses a simple element to add drama to the traditional wedding gown. A generously cut out keyhole back flaunted by floral motifs allows the bride to show off her sexy back, when she styles her hair in a pretty up-do, or when it falls to shoulder length.
Mori Lee 2719 Spring 2015
Spectacular Alencon lace motifs span the back of this majestic wedding dress from the Mori Lee collection. Sheer cutouts at either side join to form a strand of fabric buttons at the center and springs of floral clusters border this line. If there is a design that your guests won’t mind staring at throughout the ceremony, it has to be one like this.
Jasmine Couture Spring 2015 – T172011
Don’t you feel comfortable exposing your back with an illusion design? Don’t let that keep you from looking great, for here is a fantastic choice for a modest look that is still stunning. Beautiful fans of Venice lace dance in rhythm throughout the back of this beautiful gown, culminating in a strand of silky satin buttons at the center. Simplistic, yet elegant, it is a perfect choice for the bride who aims for an elegant wedding day look.
Mori Lee 2684 Tulle Wedding Gown
There are few dresses that get all the details perfect, as does this Tulle wedding gown from the Mori Lee Collection. Enhancing the illusion neckline effect of the splendid wedding dress, is a back that has a rich scattering of sparkle. The sheer lace illusion is spectacular and the contrasting shimmer adds extra pizzazz to the striking ball gown.
Weren’t these dresses gorgeous? The good news is that this is only the icing on the cake. We have many more fantastic dresses with exquisite back details in our collection at Best for Bride. Visit our online gallery and find the one that is your favorite.

Everyone seems to forget about the back of the dress. After all, at the alter, what part of facing the crowd?
If you are going to go all out and spend some good money on your dress, why not just get one that is 100% custom and you can design the back the way you want it?
I don’t really like my back, so I am going to be going with a regular back design. Is that a bad thing?
I like the design of a full, covered back on my dress. Adds a little touch of unique, but does not show skin.
