A button back wedding dress is the ideal mix of elegant sophistication and practical styling. A chic row of covered buttons looks stunning and will help to highlight your curves. It’s also a stylish way to secure the back of your dress and it creates a pretty focal point as you walk down that aisle.

Below, our expert stylists have picked four of their favourite designs and each button back wedding dress has something different to offer. Andrea is a stunning sheath, Holly has a flattering illusion neckline while Antoinette is all about elegant modesty. Finally, there’s Presley, an on-trend halter neck. Enjoy!

Illusion lace

Andrea is a stunning sheath style featuring a flattering illusion neckline and a lavish train with an intricate lace hem. It’s just breathtaking…

Curve-enhancing style

The elegant illusion bodice has an on-trend, dipped neckline that’s overlaid with graceful embroidered lace. It’s also fantastically figure hugging and skims the curves in all the right places.

Pretty wow

At the back, there’s, even more, wow factor. The pretty illusion straps frame the shoulders just so while the row of chic covered buttons will help to highlight your curves.

Catwalk styling

The plunging sweetheart bodice is offset by the higher illusion neckline, so it’s attractively revealing while still offering plenty of coverage. The full-length sleeves decorated with pretty appliqués are truly stunning and help to give this design its contemporary edge.

Magical organza

The softly flaring organza skirt doesn’t disappoint either. It’s a perfect princess style that flatters every figure. Wear it with our 163 underskirt too to give the skirt even more bounce. For a similar button back wedding dress with sleeves take a look at Camilla too.

A regal feel

Antoinette is the perfect blank canvas for your accessories, whether that’s plenty of sparkle or just a subtle touch of glitz. We love it styled with our Leonie belt, which will draw attention to your nipped in waistline. Then our regal Perla tiara will add a final touch of royal style.

Beautiful buttons

One or two accessories

With lace this striking you can keep it simple with your accessories. Our lace-edged Willa veil will complement this design perfectly. Then a stunning focal point, like one of our sparkling belts, is the only other finishing touch you’ll need.

Turn up the volume

And then there’s that skirt. Made from layers of soft tulle, it looks even more fabulous worn with two of our underskirts for maximum volume. And, if you love a button back dress with an A-line skirt, you might like Destin too.
