Bringing Sexy Back | Spotlight on Backless Wedding Dresses

By, October 18, 2013

Today, we are literally are bringing sexy back…to the back!

We love when a bride goes a little non-traditional, and chooses a dress that highlights a great feature on her body, such as her back. So, this week’s spotlight is on sexy and daring bridal gowns that accentuate and elongate the back! If you’re looking for a unique backless dress that is glamorous, flirty and fun, you are sure to find inspiration in one of the six styles captured below.

1. Open Back

We absolutely love this long-sleeved lace gown with an entirely open back. Guests will see a conservative front, and as you turn around, their jaws will drop!

2. Keyhole Back

This design is very feminine and flirty, displaying the back through a large circle. Available on many different style gowns, this popular look is easy for a bride to find and rock!

3. Low Cut

Although we love daring low-cut dresses,what stands out to us most on this dress is the the oversized bow! Check out how dramatically it accentuates, and draws attention to the back.

4. Draped Back

This gown’s back is flowing and draped, and further embellished with rhinestones, pearls and florals. What a statement for guests to ooh and ahh over!

5. Strappy Back

This style of gown features thin straps that still allow the back to be the focal point. In the example below, the designer even included a delicate floral design on one of the straps, for added flair.

6. Beaded Back

This style is definitely for a bride who dares to be different, with colored beadwork draped across the back. This dress is a stunner, and one to remember long after the wedding is over.

The Midas Touch | A Gold Wedding Inspiration Board

By, September 17, 2013

If you’re looking to add a dash of elegance or extravagance to your wedding through color, gold is where it’s at! Historically, gold has been associated with weddings because it suggests prosperity, royalty and triumph. By using bits of this sparkly and prestigious metallic, you will set the mood for a glamorous evening, and surely make a statement!

One straightforward way to incorporate gold is through jewelry, such as your wedding ring or bridal necklace. However, you don’t have to limit your love of gold to rings and bling. Nowadays, just about everything is available in a gold sheen. For example, at your tablescape, you can rent gold sequined linens, shimmering chargers and tableware, chiavari chairs and shiny floral vases. Also, many bridal gowns incorporate hints of gold, and can be paired with glittering gold shoes!  From draping to flooring, and décor to fashion, it’s easier than ever to add shine to your regal affair.

For visual examples of this neutral color with a punch, check out the Midas Touch at these recent weddings:
