I guess most of you are shocked because most beautiful open back wedding dresses are expensive, yes, it’s true that most of them come at a high price, but you can get a cute open back wedding dress with a small budget of around $200 – $500.
When it comes to color, white is my favorite and it’s quite traditional, however, you can always opt for electric blue, ivory, or red. I don’t recommend black, because it is associated with mouring / funerals (at least in western society anyway).

Open back dresses differ in style, some have straps while others don’t have. This time, i have featured a strapless showy dress which is gathered on the waist, its style will outline your waistline in an amazing way. It is a trendy open back wedding dress for young women of age 25 – 30. You can wear open toe high heel shoes with this type of dress because it’s not draping to the ground like most wedding gowns.
Comes in two colors, ivory & white, so you can select from those two. It’s soft and smooth silk material takes long to get dirty, so you don’t have to worry about dust especially if your wedding is going to be at the beach.

– When it comes to styling your bridesmaid, you need to opt for a color which is different from your dress. Let’s say you have opted for this white wedding dress, let the bridesmaids wear blue / pink, this will make it easy to differentiate you from everyone.
In my opinion, you should spice up your looks with some cute hair flowers, since the dress is white, you should accessorize your hair with a white flower.
- 5. OPEN BACK WEDDING DRESSES WITH SLEEVES:
Why don’t you try out something different? In most cases most brides wear sleeveless gowns, this time, change the trend and opt for an open back wedding dress with sleeves just like the one in the picture above.

On the other hand, these online stores have options for choosing both color & size. If you decide to shop from an offline bridal shop, I suggest you have someone go with you to choose the best open back wedding dress. In most cases, these stores have big mirrors in the fitting room, but you need a third eye to see what you can’t see.
- Take pictures: – This option will work if you shop from an offline bridal shop, while at the shop, try out different dresses and ask your friend to take pictures of you, this will show you a clear picture on how you will look in that particular dress and it will also help you make a decision very first.
- Define the length of the Dress:- Not every bride wants a floor draping dress, to best way of determining the this length is to try out different wedding dresses, walk around the shop to see if you feel comfortable in that dress, opt for a length which gives you freedom to walk around. Please, stay in control and make your own decision, most people are mislead by sales people and they end up buying very expensive wedding dresses which don’t look good on them.
- Consider the nature of your wedding: – We all get married in different ways, some have casual weddings, others formal weddings, beach wedding, winter weddings and so much more. A formal wedding will require you to go to the church, this will call for a floor length gown, yet beach weddings are casual, so you will look nice in a moderate length dress. When it comes to color, white is a default color, so choose a color basing on the circumstances and nature of wedding.
- Base on your Budget :- Much as you have done all the research and comparison, you will still have that rocking dress you die to have,, it might be beautiful, but do you have enough money to splash on the dress, remember, on your list you have pending bills to cater for, so spend money wisely and avoid falling into debt.
