Martine Loves: Backless Wedding Dresses

There’s just something about backless wedding dresses that is both elegant and undeniably sexy. Whether the dress is truly a low, plunging open back or made of illusion tulle, wedding dresses with this design feature are really making a statement this season – and I can’t help but love it! I’ve designed so many amazing backless wedding dresses –  but lately, as they grow in popularity amongst brides, I’ve turned my eye to making these open back gowns fresh, unique, with amazing couture finishes and that classic Martina Liana style brides love.

My designer open-back wedding dresses take a timeless silhouette and turn it into a modern masterpiece while showcasing an elegant hairstyle. Think dresses with plunging backs for an exit down the aisle that will make your guests’ jaws drop, or a racerback gown for something more modern and fashion-forward. Any way you do backless, you’ll be making a style statement in your wedding dress. An illusion back with placed lace or intricate beading gives an extra pop of glamour to any gown while a scooped, cowl back is timeless and romantic. I know you’re going to love how sexy, sleek and sophisticated you’ll look in a backless wedding dress. So say ‘Yes’ to the daring and decadent open-back trend!

One of my very favorite designs, this plunging back wedding dress with pearl details is an absolute showstopper! Bellagio Crepe forms a very sleek and chic sheath silhouette that is embellished with laser-cut lace, sparkling Diamante and shiny pearl beading. Each element of this backless wedding dress adds to the drama. The sexy skirt features an incredible laser-cut lace hemline and delicate beading, which elevates the chapel length train. Thin lace and Diamante beaded straps come together at the low, open back. The plunging back is highlighted by illusion lace cutouts and pearl details.

For the bride in search of a unique and breathtaking wedding gown, this couture, open-back wedding dress is like a dream! Sophisticated Bellagio Crepe creates the perfect low-back silhouette, showcasing your curves before flowing into an elegant skirt and train. The sheer bodice of this gown is detailed with graphic French Alencon lace that has been hand-embroidered with a lattice pattern, creating a unique – and romantic – look. The same graphic lace pattern continues through the hips, complemented by hand-embroidered seaming that elongates the body and adds dimension to the skirt. The front of the skirt is detailed with sheer cutouts, giving this style a windowpane effect. This same pattern is featured down the side of the skirt and has a peek-a-boo effect on the back of the train.

This illusion back wedding dress is simply magnificent and one of my most classic designs! Lace over satin creates a fit-and-flare bridal gown featuring a low sweetheart neckline and stunning lace illusion back. The unique low back and incredibly beautiful cathedral length lace train are the showpiece of this dress. Finished with a scalloped lace hem, the gorgeous train floats down from the illusion back and sweeps across from side-to-side, bringing all the drama! Choose from lace shoulder straps or long illusion sleeves, to make this open-back style completely your own.

Swirls of dramatic, Diamante-beaded lace adorn this low-back tulle over matte-side Lustre satin wedding gown for a unique silhouette. The bodice boasts a sexy, low-cut neckline with thin lace straps and continues to the low-back. A very long lace train sweeps down from the back and finishes in a classic lace hemline for added drama. The back of this open-back wedding dress features delicately placed illusion lace and is embellished with classic Diamante beading.
