When brides are looking for their wedding dress, so much attention is placed on the front – but what about the back of a design?
The back is the part of your dress that your guests will see most of so it's really important to pick right.
A lot of stunning wedding dresses have the most amazing backs and we have a gorgeous selection to inspire you with everything from lace patterns to open back dresses.
Heidi Elnora – Georgia Bourgeois
This gorgeous mermaid wedding dress by Heidi Elnora is a really modern design that any contemporary bride will love. The satin bodice and sheer illusion neckline is gorgeous but the real beauty of this dress lies at the back. We love the rigid lines and sheer style of the back of this design, it is so chic.
Anna Campbell – Madison
Beach wedding dresses are at a whole new level with Anna Campbell’s creation, Madison. The scoop back is covered with embroidery that is out of this world. We love the beachy beads and the way that they have been put together to create such an outstanding Grecian wedding dress.
Badgley Mischka – Dolores
What a gorgeous tulle wedding dress designed by Badgley Mischka. The back of this dress is beyond stunning. The intricate buttons and embroidery on the back of the dress are beautifully paired with sheer material to accentuate the detail.
Elio Abou Fayssal
This high end design by the amazing Elio Abou Fayssal is so exquisite. The caged back detail is unique and perfectly executed for such a grand ball gown wedding dress. We absolutely adore long sleeves on a wedding dress because designs like this are the result. It’s truly fit for a princess.
Rosa Clara – Naia
Any bride looking for a dress which flows beautifully and has subtle hints of glamour, this Rosa Clara gown could be everything you have ever dreamed of. We love the splash of silver colour, it makes it so perfect for a winter wedding.

It’s very rare that we are lost for words here at hitched, but this Justin Alexander fishtail wedding dress had us speechless. The back of this design is spectacular and the work of a true genius.
Claire Pettibone – Silverlake
This Claire Pettibone wedding dress must be what lace heaven looks like. The flared cap sleeves and illusion neckline are the perfect marriage for a design like this. The back of the wedding dress is where so much beauty lies as a result of the unique pattern.
Pronovias – Olmedo
The back detail on this stunning Pronovias wedding dress is beyond amazing and we love the silver waistband which ties the glamorous embroidery and ball gown shape together.
Allure Bridals – Style 2907
It takes a strong woman to turn down a lace fishtail wedding dress, especially when it looks like this design from Allure Bridals. The heavy lace pattern is carried onto the back to add the most elegant detail. The dress looks gorgeous from every single angle and that is why we love it.
Alfred Angelo – Style 2530
The gorgeous thing about this Alfred Angelo dress is the way that the one shoulder floral detail is carried over onto the back of the dress to create a stunning design. We love the crisp white colour, it is perfect for bringing out every inch of detail in this beautiful tulle wedding dress.
Claire Pettibone – Bel Air
What’s not to love about this amazing lace wedding dress? The back detail is so beautiful, and will really make a statement on your special day. The simple shape is the perfect choice as all of the attention will be on the detail.
Elio Abou Fayssal
Elio Abou Fayssal has designed an elegant empire line wedding dress with so much attention to detail. It exudes class and sophistication and has so many feminine aspects to it. The neck material is so sheer it’s almost invisible which makes the pretty button details stand out so much, almost like an illusion. The designer has thrown a modern twist into a classically styled wedding dress and the outcome is magnificent.
Justin Alexander – Style 9839
This dress is a vision of everything we love in an embellished wedding dress and more. The attention to detail is out of this world and the sheer back is beautifully feminine.
Heidi Elnora – Dylan Darling
Brides who want a simple wedding dress that still has loads of character need to see this. The open back is so flattering and such a unique style for a wedding outfit. The flowing material will move so beautifully for anyone who walks it down the aisle.
Anna Campbell – Adelaide
If you want a unique and feminine look on your wedding day, this could be the dress for you. The strapless style is met with a gorgeous sheer overlay that wraps over the back to create such a desirable V shape. The embellishment which can be seen is to-die-for, especially with the small satin bow to finish off the look.
Alfred Angelo – Style 2535
Fish tail wedding dresses are so flattering and this is no exception. The triangular lace shape on the back is exquisite and creates such a nice shape. This is so unique and brides who want to wow their guests on their wedding day should definitely consider this luxurious wedding dress.
Pronovias – Orsola
This gorgeous simple wedding dress is brought to life with some dazzling embellishment and a sultry low scoop back. The minimalist design lacks nothing in style or elegance and we wouldn’t change a thing about it.
Heidi Elnora – Cameron Darling
Nothing screams festival wedding more than this understated design. The maxi dress style is so beautiful and perfect for summer weddings everywhere. The cross style on the back of the dress is crazy-pretty and should be worn with serious confidence. We love the modern element to this wedding dress and cannot wait to see brides rocking this look.
Justin Alexander – Style 8873
Winter weddings and winter brides need this dress, now! The champagne colour couldn’t suit this design more and the way the tulle skirt falls is so graceful. The back of this dress has so much embellishment and detail which equals the beauty of the front – who could say no to those sparkles?
Alfred Angelo – Style 2565
The back of this beautiful wedding dress is so detailed and perfect for any bride planning a glamorous wedding. We love the lace applique detail and how it is spread out over the train. Having lots of detail on the back of your wedding dress means you will look beyond stunning from every angle in your wedding photos.
Claire Pettibone – Santa Monica
This lace creation would be the perfect wedding dress for a destination wedding somewhere sunny and beautiful. The spaghetti straps are the ideal choice for this design because they are so delicate and feed into the breath-taking love heart shaped sheer back.
Elio Abou Fayssal
Wedding dresses can hold a lot of glamour, but this style is in a whole realm of its own. It’s a simple wedding dress with a huge twist. The full embellishment over the entirety of the dress gives it the ’wow’ factor and modern brides will love the batwing sleeves and open back aspects.
Justin Alexander – Style 8855
The racer back shape on this pink wedding dress is a new trend that has been used to create a classic and timeless look. The special thing about the design is the difference in detail between the back and the front. It gives brides the opportunity to wear a modest wedding dress with it’s very own twist at the back.
Every bride needs an elegant wedding dress to wear on their special day, whether it's a feathered wedding dress or one with a beautiful back!
