Planning on making a jaw-dropping statement on your wedding day? Forget the unusual venue and wild color palette and wear a shockingly low or even see-through wedding gown instead.
While there are plenty of Kate Middleton-inspired (read: modest) gowns available, there are also a large number of barely there numbers that will have the preacher blushing.
If you're not sure you want to be on dad's arm in a racy design, opt for a more traditional look for the ceremony and transform into the sexy women your fiancé married for the reception or after party with a high hemline, low back, and sheer fabric.
Here are a few of the (almost) X-rated numbers you'll soon be spying in stores:
<a href="http://www.jlmcouture.com/">Hayley Paige</a>’s Edwardian-inspired sheer tulle overlay with silk bias finishing “covers” a ‘50s style bustier set underneath. The retro lingerie design features hand-cut floral embellishment and alabaster stonework. This one-of-a-kind gown is only available at the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in Los Angeles.
A lace wedding gown usually brings thoughts of tradition and modesty, but <a href="http://moniquelhuillier.com/">Monique Lhuillier</a>’s Kayla design is far from conservative. The Chantilly lace illusion neck, long sleeve modified trumpet gown has a front split that will allow you to show off your sexy legs à la Angeline Jolie at the 2012 Oscars.
Pnina Tornai, exclusively available at <a href="http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/">Kleinfeld in New York</a>, is well-known for her plunging necklines, corseted bodices, and risqué designs. This off-white silk chiffon sheath with halter neckline features jeweled floral appliqués and a (very) low back.
Look and feel like a goddess on your wedding day in Perina by <a href="http://inesdisanto.com/">Ines Di Santo</a>. Made from metallic chiffon, the draped gown has an asymmetrical strap adorned with a floral beaded applique, and the skirt features a sky-high slit with laser-cut edges.
<a href="http://reemacra.com/">Reem Acra</a>’s Angel Kisses dress is reminiscent of the beaded and feathered fashions of the Art Deco era. While ladies of the Roaring ‘20s made sure that they didn’t reveal too much on the dance floor, this embroidered stretch illusion bodice leaves nothing to the imagination.
