When looking back at wedding dress trends, we saw beautiful back details really come to the forefront of bridal design in late 2016.  Looking forward, we are so glad this trend seems firmly set to stick around well into 2019 (and hopefully beyond). Due to back details being such a long-standing trend, designers are getting more and more creative with their bridal back details, as we can see from the new 2019 collections.

You may be wondering why this particular trend is proving so popular and standing the test of time. Well as a bride-to-be, picturing that iconic moment – that long walk down the aisle, all eyes on you, settling at the alter with your new husband/wife to be – the back of your dress is what is visible to your guests for the majority of the time. 

This combined with the development of more creative wedding photography (think dreamy shots from behind of couples holding hands etc.), means more and more brides are carefully considering the back of the wedding gowns when selecting their dream wedding dress. back details are taking centre stage more than ever.

With that in mind, we have selected a few of our favourite designs from the new 2019 wedding dress collections, featuring incredible back details, that we currently have in the boutique, ready for you to try! Simply pop over to our appointment request page to secure a time to come in and see these beautiful gowns up close and personal.

This back detail is like no other gown we’ve seen before and we are in love! Delicate, feminine, and just a little bit sexy – what more does a bride need?!
