8 Wedding Dresses With Great Back Details

Business in the front, party in the back.

Long lace sleeves, plunging necklines, and tons of volume are all big trends for brides in 2017. One trend we think everyone can pull off this year: great back details. From intricate embroidery to cool shapes to lots of skin, we love the over-the-shoulder-photo potential of these gowns.

Bows were a big trend at bridal fashion week, and no one did it better than Oscar del La Renta with this gorgeous, low-back gown.
