Low Back Wedding Dresses
There is just something about seeing the tanned skin and bare shoulders of brides in low back wedding dresses that is both elegant and undeniably sexy. Whether the dress is truly a low, plunging, open back or made of illusion tulle, wedding dresses with this design feature really make a statement. Let’s face it – as you pass down the aisle on your wedding day, every one of your guests will be looking at your back for sometime during the ceremony so it makes sense to have something interesting, unique and gorgeous on display!
For destination weddings, beach weddings or idyllic Greek island elopements, the low back wedding dress is the perfect timeless silhouette. Which style works for your body type and your wedding? Read on about our top ten low back wedding dresses to find a style that perfectly shows off your best feature.
1. Andalucia Bridal Gown
First up is the Andalucia wedding dress from our Emanuella Collection with it’s beaded lace plunging v-neckline. Swirls of dramatic, pearl beaded lace adorn this low back opaque matte organza wedding dress for a unique silhouette. The bodice boats a sexy, low-cut neckline with thin lace straps and continues to the low-back. The front of the skirt boasts an optional front split to reveal tanned legs and designer shoes. A chapel length lace train sweeps down from the back and finishes in a classic lace cut out hemline for added drama. If you are having an evening wedding or a cocktail wedding, this style is perfect. If you are tying the knot for the second time or you are a keen dancer, the front split and low back combination is a winner.
2. Belaire Bridal Gown
Next up is the Belaire bridal gown from our Emanuella collection with it’s open cut out back creating a sleek and sophisticated look. For the bride in search of a unique and breathtaking wedding gown, this couture, open-back wedding dress is like a dream! The sophisticated bellagio crepe skirt creates the perfect low-back silhouette, showcasing your curves before flowing into an elegant train. The sheer cut out panels in the bodice of this gown show off the detailed graphic lace, creating a unique and romantic look. The same graphic lace pattern continues through to hug the hips and highlight a small waist. This long sleeve wedding dress is both elegant and refined in detail.
3. Havana Bridal Gown
Number 3 is the Havana gown from our Emanuella collection which has an illusion low back! It is the perfect compromise allowing a striking low back scoop whilst still being covered with a sheer tulle and lace with a run of covered buttons down the centre back. The Havana gown features a delicate chantilly lace over comfort stretch lining in either ivory or nude colourway, which creates a sheath silhouette. The dramatic back is perfectly complemented by the plunging front neckline, also covered with an illusion mesh. It is the unique low back and incredibly beautiful cathedral length lace train that is the showpiece of this dress. Finished with a scalloped lace hem, the gorgeous train floats down into an illusion finish to highlight the delicate lace. If you are busty or curvy, this button up back gives support while still appearing sheer from the back.
4. Seville Bridal Gown
The Seville wedding dress with racer back is a modern and fashion-forward take on the low back gown. One of our Emanuella collection designs, the Seville is a plunging back wedding dress with back lace detail, an absolute showstopper! High sheen luxury stretch satin forms a very sleek and chic silhouette that is embellished from behind with guipure lace and shiny pearl beading. Each element of this backless wedding dress adds to the drama. The sexy skirt features an incredible floating train which flows into a chapel length train. If you are having a destination wedding in a tropical location, the Seville will travel easily and you will feel cool, glamorous and elegant on the day.
5. Madagascar Bridal Gown
So far we have seen open low back wedding dresses to show off a tanned back and sleek shoulder blades and we have seen illusion low back wedding dresses where the effect is the same but with some coverage of tulle. Well, the Madagascar gown is the best of both worlds! The back is open and low in a scoop design, which is then appliqued with a stunning guipure lace which flows over the shoulder in delicate lace straps. The guipure lace panel is see-through and extends over the back of the dress by several inches and gorgeous covered buttons run through the lace panel.
6. Ecuador Bridal Gown
And back to an open design for number six with the Ecuador bridal gown in soft dreamy chiffon. This low back wedding dress is cut down to the waist with a delicate lace scallop finishing off the edge of the neckline. The back features a criss cross design of beaded shoestring straps which offers an interesting view point.
7. Vera Cruz Bridal Gown
The Vera Cruz wedding dress shows off an open bare back in a plunging v-neckline. This gown is perfect for beach weddings with the floaty chiffon layer combined with the snug fitting lace bodice. The straps are very narrow over the shoulder allowing your back to shine!
8. Trieste Bridal Gown
The Trieste bridal gown features a low scooped back with a sheer lace feature. The centre back covered buttons run through the sheer lace and down into the skirt section, which has a dreamy tulle skirt overlaid on a sheath design.
9. Angel Bridal Gown
The Angel wedding dress is a soft and simple design, perfect for travel and beach weddings. The low back design on this bridal gown is very unique with an open cut out at the small of the back. Soft chantilly lace covers the middle of the back which is embellished with a heavily beaded motif in pearls. This gown truly has all the action at the back!
10. Canggu Bridal Gown
And last but by no means least, we have the Canggu wedding dress which is a knockout from the back! Lace is secured at the nape of the neck with a couple of buttons creating a halter-neck silhouette from the front. But turn to the back and the lace splits in two to leave your centre back bare. The details don’t stop there with a stunning lace cut out train with sheer panel.
