It’s all about the back of the gown & fabulous earrings

This season started a trend that is so gorgeous it is probably here to stay for at least a couple of years.  Bridal gown designers have created dress backs that reach beyond stunning.  Delicate laces, ornate beading and interesting back shape designs created through intricate strap details or unusual patterns.  The backs of these gowns display creativity on the designers’ behalf and are just visually pleasing.

It would be a crime to hide any of these works of art, so one must wear their hair up and of course a stunning hair accessory is required to balance your look.  A crystal bridal comb is perfect for a beaded back, and a soft bridal hair flower or bohemian chic bridal hair ornament works perfectly with a lace back.  Below are some of our favorite gowns with suggested hair jewelry and earrings.

Love how our Erin Cole earrings and hair clip work with this gorgeous Hailey Paige gown.  The white opalescent stones pick up the beading detail perfectly.

Not sure who this gorgeous dress is by and would certainly love to see the front.

The above gown by Angel Sanchez is so soft and flowing.  Tempting to wear gorgeous organza hair flowers in back and pearl earrings, but we think a bit of contrast and sparkle is the way to go with this gown.  The Debra Moreland dream girl bridal hair combs have the same ethreal flow as the dress, and our crystal stud earrings by Cheryl King Couture add sparkle and don’t interfere with the ruffles at the neckline.

Of course, however breathtaking the back of your gown, you will still first be seen by guests, your family and the groom from the front.  Nothing makes your face glow more than sparkling bridal earrings.  Below is our favorite back with bridal jewelry & accessories to create an entrance as dramatic as this gowns exit.

Absolutely gorgeous Claire Pettibone gown.

One could keep it very simple and just wear diamond studs with this unbelievable Claire Pettibone gown, however we discovered three perfect pieces to impress.  Cheryl King Couture vintage pearl & crystal statement earrings, Lorren Bell Art Deco crystal cuff and Hansel & Gretel crystal & pearl hair comb by Debra Moreland for Paris.  Wear one of these accessories or any combination of the three.  The look will be breathtaking.
