There are some wedding dress collections that are absolutely gorgeous, but would take a supermodel to pull off. There are other wedding dress collections that are super stylish, but aren't really practical in real life.
And then there are the wedding dress collections that are beautiful, wearable, flattering, romantic, chic, and beloved by real brides, all over the world.
And Maggie Sottero is one of those kind of collections.
So today, we're working with Maggie Sottero, to share some of our very favorite wedding dresses from their collection.
Endlessly pretty, the designers at Maggie Sottero have a serious eye for detail. With the most intricate beading, slightest ruffles, and elegant lace, every last touch is carefully thought out to make dresses that are both unique and timeless.
But you'll see from the gowns we've chosen below, that there's one wedding dress trend that we've fallen hard for, it's all about beautiful backs!
From sophisticated embellishments and delicate sheer panels, to edgier open backs and plunging silhouettes, these dresses will appeal to brides with both classic tastes or bold style.
These are the kind of gowns that make a real entrance as you walk up the aisle, and ensure all eyes are on the bride as you make your vows.
Ellison is a wedding dress for hopeless romantics.
While its deep back and sheer sections add a touch of grown-up glamour to the gown, the intricate appliqués and scalloped detailing lend a vintage feel and a sophisticated polish.
Definitely one to pair with a loose upstyle and dramatic earrings.
Ettia is another Maggie Sottero wedding dress that takes its cue from vintage designs.
From the pretty capped sleeves to the flowing texture, and the alluring beaded design all over, this gown wouldn't look out of place at a Great Gatsby themed soirée.
Pair with art deco peep-toes and long drop earrings for a glamorous ladylike look.
The back detail on the Phyllis gown is just divine. Imagine the gasps behind as you walk up the aisle with an illusion back as show-stopping as this one.
We just love how it's paired with a soft, yet voluminous tulle skirt to add a touch of playfulness and whimsy to the ornate bodice.
If you're looking for a princess-worthy wedding dress, Phyllis might be ‘The One'.
Chesney is such classic laced gown, that would be just perfect for a bride who wants understated elegance on her wedding day.
The glistening beaded bodice adds just the right amount of sparkle, while the off-the-shoulder sleeves are ultra flattering.
This one would be stunning with minimal jewelry and an ornate headpiece to really highlight the Swarovski crystals on the dress.
Melanie is one of our very favorite gowns in the Maggie Sottero collection. It shows off your back beautifully, with a sheer illusion panel and gorgeous floral appliqué.
With less beading and sparkle than other designs, this gown has a more organic feel, making it a stunning choice for a boho bride or a rustic wedding.
We love the idea of this dress with a foliage crown and a loose hand-tied bouquet.
And last, but most certainly not least, Vaughn is a super gorgeous Maggie Sottero wedding dress that's come straight off a 2016 catwalk, it's so current and chic.
With a crochet effect illusion panel that continues down the sleeves, it's entirely unique, without being too eccentric.
Beautifully fitted, this is one of the most romantic in the bunch, paired with some side swept waves, this gown would just ooze laid-back glamour.
It's hard to pick a favorite, right? I think mine has to be Vaughn or Melanie. How about you?
Hopefully this trend for wedding dresses where the back takes center stage, sticks around, because these dresses are seriously stunning.
