You said "I Do" to an incredibly sexy low-backed stunner. Your stunning wedding dress makes you feel confident and shows off just enough skin to make you feel like a bride while still leaving enough to the imagination. Your mom started crying, you had a beautiful bridal "glow" while wearing it, and you exude confidence in every cell of your body when wearing it.
But now that it comes to accessorizing it, and you are stuck! You don't want to cover up what you paid for but you still want the true experience of getting all done up with your bridal accessories. Read on to discover tips for how to best accessorize your open back gown.
Frame A Cowl Back Gown
Accessorize with: Graceful Circle Cut Mantilla Bridal Veil with Lace Edging
Echo the classic beauty of a gently draped scoop back dress with a circle cut mantilla made from the most see-through veil fabric. The feminine circular cut of this bridal veil reflects the organic draping of the bride's low backed stunner without covering it up. Keep the lace detailing around the edge of your bridal veil so that you have that sweet touch of embellishment without covering up the alluring scooped silhouette of your dress back.
Low Back V Wedding Gown
Accessorize with: Silk Bridal Wing Set
I'm loving the stylish restraint in the lines of this classic V back gown. A more modest low back proves that just a slight dip can be pure elegance. Lace appliqués whimsically gather from the sweet sleeves down to a delicate V back, and the bride clipped on oh-so-soft bridal wing separates in the gentlest of fabrics to frame her back without obscuring. She gets the drama of trailing silk fabric without any of the coverage.
Vintage-Inspired Strapless Formfitter
Accessorize with: English Net Bridal Veil for Coverage in the Church
The glam feel of this body-hugging strapless beauty speaks for itself. A bit more coverage was needed for her traditional church wedding, so the bride chose a more opaque English net veil that is known for being less see-through than other fabrics. It covers up her back and shoulders just enough while playing up the vintage feel of her beaded sheath gown.
Open Back Lace Dress with Spaghetti Straps
Accessorize with: Simple Raw Edge Wedding Veil
The effortless draw of this sultry bridal dress is in the ultra thin, dainty straps that pleasingly sweep down to an ultra low back. Less is more for this heavily detailed lace wedding gown, so she chose a raw edge veil for a hint of bridal femininity that still allows peeks of her gorgeous back.
Illusion Tulle Back Dress with Buttons
Accessorize with: Drop Royal Length Wedding Veil
A unique Illusion back on a wedding dress allows the buttons to magically follow the curve of a bride's spine while giving the appearance of a completely backless gown. The bride really wanted the elegance of a bridal veil without covering up the buttons, so she decided on a drop cathedral length two layer veil - the beauty of this style is that she can wear it over her face as she walks does the aisle, but it also doesn't have any of the bulkiness or puffiness of a traditional two tier veil that would cover up her backless gown.
Backless Wedding Dress with Sleeves
Accessorize with: Bridal Back Jewelry Necklace with Draped Wedding Cape
An opulent single gemstone back necklace enticingly sways as the bride walks, creating a hypnotically beautiful focal point for a long sleeved backless ensemble. Her low backed dress is pleasingly framed with a draped wedding cape that swoops just below the open back of her gown - accenting it without covering up any of her head-to-toe glam bridal style.
Ethereal Open Back Wedding Dress with Thin Straps
Narrow 54'' Width Single Layer Bridal Veil for Minimal Coverage
A romantic appeal for any whimsically-inspired bride, this low back gown has just the right amount of embroidery along the back-framing open scoop. The bride wanted to accessorize with discretion to stay true to her garden aesthetic, so she paired her gown with the thinnest 54'' wedding veil that falls gently down without obscuring.
Whether you are going all in with a totally backless charmer or adding just a peek of skin with a low back gown, there is a bridal accessory that will compliment the unique lines of the back of your wedding dress.
