Wedding dresses designed to look divine from behind set the standard this season. Watteau trains, transparent tulle, and plunging drapes star on gowns destined to leave a lasting impression.

Stunning back view? Consider this utterly romantic almond silk-taffeta ball gown. A bountiful cabbage rose and fan pleating accent the Watteau train, while ruffles create a crisp collar on the halter neckline.
