Martine Loves: Dramatic Backs

On-trend and with just a subtle hint of sexy, low back and backless wedding dresses are making a statement this season. With signature laser-cut trains paired with illusion lace and stunning beadwork, I know how to make a low back wedding dress stand out. From double beaded back straps to tiny tie-ups and shoestring straps, these dresses offer a unique take on bridal. Flirty micro straps add a touch of boho, while dramatically beaded bands give off a hint of glamour.

I’m really loving shoestring straps this season and this dress is no exception. Beaded shoestring straps extend to the back of this gown, creating a blinged-out strappy back, while sheer side cutouts extend to a sheer bodice on the back of this gown. A breathtaking train, complete with romantic lace motif hem, completes this look.

This beaded crepe gown is sophisticated, minimalist perfection! A V-neckline adorns the front of this simple and chic Belle contour crepe gown, accented on either side by visible feature seaming that curves along the body, showing off a bride’s shape effortlessly. Rich beadwork begins at the front of both straps and extends to the back of the gown creating a bold, geometric-inspired strappy back – something I’ve really been loving lately.

Martina Liana Charli Corset

A completely romantic, glamorous style, the Charli Corset is one of my absolute favourite new pieces. This corset has rich, silver-beaded lace adorning the V-neckline of its bodice with luxurious lattice detailing is mixed in, creating a unique look that’s full of dimension. A strappy, racerback highlights the back of this rich statement piece.

For the bride in search of a unique and breathtaking gown, this wedding dress is a dream! Featuring a sheer bodice detailed with graphic lace with a hand-embroidered beading, this backless wedding dress creates a unique – and romantic – look. I really love how unique this back feels, too. It’s unlike anything I’ve created in the past and I know brides will love how exceptionally designed it is.
