Baby got Back – 30 Showstopping Statement Back Wedding Dresses

The statement back has become the focal point of beautiful wedding dresses in the last few years, and designers are certainly continuing the trend well into 2016. Whether delicately embroidered, blinging with beads, a sheer illusion or completely bare, brides are searching far and wide for wedding dresses with the most beautiful backs. Which makes sense, in a way, the first (and some would say most important) part of your day will probably be spent with your back to your wedding guests – so why not give them something stylish to gasp about?! Today we’ve chosen our favourite wedding dresses with statement backs from real brides and designers to give you just a hint of what magical designs are possible for your Big Day dress. Get ready to swoon!
