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.
