Wedding dresses, as beautiful as they are, have been quite predictable in the past. Fortunately, those days are over. Designers have thrown out cookie cutter designs for wedding dresses with modern flair.

Modern day brides who are looking for a unique wedding dress design won’t be disappointed with these trends:

Illusion/Embellished Backs

Designers took advantage of the part of the bridal gown that is mostly seen during a wedding ceremony — the back. Wedding dresses with open, illusion and embellished backs are a big trend this season.

Gowns with open illusion backs and delicate embellishments are sure to keep all eyes on the bride.

Monique Lhuillier adds illusion backs with lace sleeves and sparkling applique to bring several trends together.
