When searching for the perfect wedding dress, many brides tend to narrow down options by a desired silhouette, neckline, or sleeve style. However, in recent seasons, brides-to-be have begun to consider what the back of the gown looks like – above anything else – when scouring bridal salons for The One.

It's true that most of your wedding guests will be focused on the front of your gown throughout the celebration, but leaving a lasting impression as you walk up the aisle with your beloved can create a similar effect to the one experienced by guests when they see your dress for the first time at the start of the ceremony. With exquisite embroidery, illusion details, or striking low cuts, the back of the dress can really steal the show. 

The fall 2016 bridal collections showcased a number of gorgeous styles with breathtaking backs that made each of the gowns more memorable. If you love this wedding look, take a peek at some beautiful low-back, detailed-back, and illusion-back styles in the slideshow above. Be sure to rollover each image to learn more about the gown!
