plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

The very first dress I added to my favorites list when searching for *the gown* had a dramatic back.  One that, as you walked down the aisle, guests would be surprised (in a nice way).  It’s a great statement to make, especially if you are not afraid to be bold.

This particular dress is not one I tried one, but the back really caught my eye.  It is a gorgeous gown to begin with, but the open back really gives it a touch of sexy.

  1. Oh my gosh, I love it! I’m partial to lace dresses anyway, but the back on that is breathtaking.

  2. I was instantly drawn to dresses like this too…but ultimately I picked something completely different.

  3. I looked at a couple like this too… but ended up going with strapless even though I was TOTALLY planning not to!

  4. Love gowns like this. So pretty

  5. Stop it. You are forever making me want to push up the whole vow renewal. That gown is gorgeous!

    What wedding dress is this? I’ve been looking for almost the exact same dress for months now.

    This is my dream dress. I am going to search their site and ask the photogs if they someone magically know where its from. Everything about this is perfection!
