Backless ball gowns are one of the biggest trends in fashion at the moment, so it was only a matter of time until the trend hit the bridal world, too.
These beautiful gowns with open backs see inches of soft fabric fall almost to the waist.
The look defies the traditional conservative wedding dress, and reveals just enough skin to show a more sensual side, but still maintain a classy, modest look.

The awards season has seen hundreds of celebrities embracing the backless look on red carpets worldwide.
With semi transparent lace to partially (or totally) cover the skin, these wedding dresses are great for ultra feminine brides, who aren’t afraid to embrace their sensuality on their wedding day.
This trend has become one of the biggest surprises of the season, especially on the bridal catwalks of New York.
Designs are vaguely reminiscent of Bella Swan’s dress in one of the most talked about on screen weddings this year, Twilight Breaking Dawn. With a silhouette of fluid lines and low veils the look is chic, elegant and ensures all eyes will be on you.
If you do reveal your back on the big day remember to exfoliate, moisturise, apply SPF and perhaps treat yourself to a massage or two in order to avoid spots, blemishes and sun damage.
