For many wedding dresses these days, they are often better from the back! Whether you choose a gown with a statement back or just happen to like its buttons or skin-baring neckline, giving your guests something to look at while you recite your vows at the altar is never a bad idea.

Here are four of our favorites:

We loved bride Deena Decker's gown, seen above. The keyhole back is having a big moment right now, and this is total evidence why. Especially striking is the way the scalloped lace trimming her veil accents the back. It's romantic and daring at the same time.

Bride Courtney Gabelbauer's wedding dress is the epitome of ladylike — Audrey Hepburn would absolutely approve! Brides planning a sophisticated, uptown affair with retro touches should consider a similar bow-adorned look.

We're utterly obsessed with bride Jessi Dodson's boho look. Her low-backed lace look was completed with a simple bow and a trendy flower crown.
