You know you want to look fantastic when you walk into your wedding, but during the ceremony, most of your guests will likely be looking at the back of your gown. This is part of why dramatic backs are a growing trend for bridal gowns.
An excellent way to wear a dramatic back is through a backless gown. With a plunging line, these show off some skin in a romantic and sexy way. The best way to wear this trend is with a detailed backline. Look for a skin-hugging lace or loose cowl back as a way to add interest and style.
If you want a dramatic back without baring all, consider an illusion back. Much like the illusion neckline, this style offers the appearance of being bare, but with the comfortable feeling of full coverage. Illusion backs also give the look of floating accents and details across the back for a very romantic style.
Another big trend for designers is the racer back. This is a fabulous style if you want a bit of bling, too. With a line of detailed decorative elements running along your spine, you get a fantastic look that is elegant and modern.

Wedding designers have been showing off their Spring 2015 collections and pearls are taking center stage. They are being added to gowns in the same way that crystals have been. This gives a soft, feminine style that is perfect for any Utah bride.
Pearl embellishments aren’t the only way to wear this trend, though. Pearls can also be an excellent accessory for your wedding day. The classic string of pearls is perfectly matched with an illusion neckline gown or sweetheart neckline.
Simple pearl stud earrings are an elegant choice for any bridal style. A pearl cuff is an excellent addition to a vintage style wedding dress, too.
You can also look for pearl accents on your other accessories. A veil clip or tiara can use pearls instead of or alongside crystals. You can even look for pearl-accented shoes to wear under your gown.
Of course, pearls are also perfect for your bridesmaids. A long string of pearls can be worn in a variety of ways to allow each maid to express her own style while keeping a uniform appearance.

The New York International Bridal Market finished this week, and the world’s top bridal designers were showing off some big new trends. Along with some that have been favorites for a few years — including pink hues and vintage inspiration — we got to see some great new styles that are sure to inspire you.
- The best neckline: The big trend this year wasn’t strapless or illusion necklines. Instead, halters grabbed the spotlight. This is the perfect choice if you want bare shoulders with a more modest neckline. Halter-neck dresses show some great variety, too, including satiny high necklines as well as soft sheer fabric over a sweetheart neckline.
- The best accessory: This is set to be the year of the veil. Designers took things to a new level in this year’s shows, combining delicate veils with crystal-covered headbands. Many of the headbands also incorporated a floral style to bring together several great styles.
- The best cover-up: Say goodbye to the demure jacket and say hello to stunning shrugs. This year’s trend is statement cover-ups made of faux fur or feathers. Paired with a clean-lined dress, these cover-ups offer a bit of drama to a bride’s look.
