Over the past few years, wedding dress designers have paid more attention to making your back look sexy in their dresses. So get your sexy on, enjoy looking at these sexy backs and take advantage of that all angle mirror when you go dress shopping!

We partnered with John Ciciora Photography and some local dress shops for this photo shoot a little over a year ago. And while some of these dresses are no longer carried by the bridal shops featured, if you see one you love, they are likely to carry something similar!

Special thanks to these MIM Family Bridal Shops for their continued support of Married In Milwaukee: Amelishan Bridal, Miss Ruby Bridal Boutique and Stone Manor Bridal. Be sure to visit them! [Read more…]
