Ribbons, Sashes, and Bows: Bows in Back

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2004

During the ceremony, a bride's back is the center of visual attention, so this view will captivate. The blue taffeta sash and bow of Reem Acra's satin ball gown are embellished with Swarovski crystals, as is the bodice. Gloves by Carolina Amato.

Ribbons, hand-dyed in tea leaves, drift down the back of an A-line organza gown by Bonaparte-NY. Its delicacy recalls the fragile beauty of vintage lingerie. Citrine necklace by Robin Woodard; hair comb by Erin Cole Design.

Carolina Herrera's strapless duchesse-satin gown elegantly blends the romantic with the modern. The blush-pink silk taffeta sash that cascades down the back guarantees a grand exit.
