It’s on: The Hunt to Find the Perfect Backless Wedding Dress

I’m the first to admit – I was never that girl who daydreamed of getting married. After Ben proposed 5 months ago (wow, has it been that long?!?), I tried looking for a wedding dress and gave up, deciding I’d just wear a bikini or something instead.

Nothing really grabbed my attention and I honestly had NO CLUE what I was even looking for.

I recently tried to start the hunt up again and feel like I might actually be getting closer to what I *think* I want.

A couple months ago I fell in love with just one dress – a satin sweetheart neckline ballgown with a beautifully long train – the Pacifica by Sophia Tolli.

And then I just sort of lost interest.

And then we attended a wedding in Maui and I thought to myself, a satin ball gown simply will not do.

For my beach wedding in the sand, I really needed something light and flowy.

And then I saw this picture. I was immediately hooked on it – a sexy backless wedding dress.

After searching and searching for its designer (it’s Wanda Borges – THANKS KATY!!), I did finally see the front and I hated it. So I was back to square one still not really knowing what I wanted.

I still haven’t gone to try anything on yet (maybe I should?!?!), but I feel like I’m getting closer to at least finding a general style I like.




And these are my favorites thus far…

  3. Really think last one would be gorgeous on you !!!!!!! Also thought criss cross back with gold tie stunning…happy for you ….your smart, beautiful, blessed…:)

  4. I know you said you hated the front of the dress, but I managed to find the designer in case you ever change your mind :) Her name is Wanda Borges, her website appears to be in Portugese so I’m not sure where she’s based.

  5. WOW!!! You found better ones that I did, that’s for sure!! We got married in Vegas and I had a hell of a time finding something I liked. Every one of these is stunning!!! Congrats and enjoy no matter what you choose. :)

  6. I was wondering do you have the front picture of that dress which you got hooked to, but once you saw the front you didn’t like it? I love the back of that dress as well but I can’t seem to find the front picture! :((

    1. Hi Carren,

      I’m sorry I don’t…but if I run across it again, I will add it to the post and let you know!

  7. I’m soo in love with the tiered ruffle dress. It was THE dress that I wanted but our wedding didn’t really work out the way anyone had planned.
