Backless Dresses That Defy That Bridesmaid Gown Stereotype

By Kellee Khalil, Lover.ly

The bride is no longer the only person at the wedding who gets to turn heads all the way down the aisle anymore -- well, at least not if the newest bridesmaids dresses from the 2014 runway at Bridal Fashion Week are any indication. These dresses are truly bringing sexy back, with their lace-covered, sheer, or completely exposed backs. Does this mean an end to the traditionally dreaded bridesmaids dress? These fashionable and flirty frocks have left us feeling optimistic!

Beautiful cut-outs are elegant and dramatic.
