wedding trend: low-back wedding dresses

as i read through the wedding blogs and peruse pinterest, i'm starting to see a new trend in wedding dresses: the low-back wedding dress. there are some amazing wedding dresses out there with either a low back or a sheer back. i love the look! i guess the only thing i'll say is pulling off this look requires a gorgeous back to begin with. not everyone can rock the low back wedding dress. what do you think? is this a style you like? will your wedding dress be low-backed? you can view more of the wedding dresses i've pinned on pinterest.

you've probably been wondering where i've been lately and why i have posted in a while. well, i've been very, very busy. i've been posting on facebook, twitter, and NOW on pinterest! if i didn't have a job and somewhat of a life, i'd be pinning ALL DAY! a bride told me that it's addicting and i believe she's right. it's all i want to do. but the doosey is that i'm in front of the computer at work all day so it's not very healthy to be in front of the computer all night, too, so i don't have many things pinned yet. but i'm getting there. 

here's something i've come to realize: i can look at wedding dresses as much as i want without feeling weird; like i'm-already-married-so-why-am-i-looking-at-wedding-dresses weird. it's part of my job! ha! this claire pettibone dress (above) photographed by elizabeth messina is just about the most beautiful thing i've ever seen. but i do have some other dresses pinned on my wedding couture pinterest board. and i'll be adding more daily (i'm sure).

by the way, if you want to be totally blown away by a pinner (someone who pins on pinterest) you've got to check out oh lovely day, she's amazing! clearly she's been doing this for a while. 

and who doesn't love a vera wang?!

ombre is all the rage right now. i've seen lamp shades, blankets, dresses, wreaths, nail name it. at first i wasn't so sure, but the more i see the move i LOVE the effect. above are just a few of my favorites. would you incorporate any ombre details into your wedding?
