Browsing through the beautiful bridal collections of JLM Couture, we were particularly taken by how many gowns in the Spring 2014 collections featured stunning back designs. From illusion lace to bejeweled keyholes, there were so many pretty styles we couldn't resist sharing a few of our favorites.

Weddings come in all shapes, sizes, and styles these days. And while we love a casual backyard celebration as much as the next gal, there's something to be said for getting (way) dressed up to say 'I do'. So we've whipped up a supremely elegant, Art Deco-inspired ensemble fit for the fanciest bride on the block. Pops of deep crimson paired with sparkly statement earrings (and a belt!) amp up the glam factor of this sultry halter gown, and a maribou purse is equal parts playful and chic.
Where to Buy: BCBG Ooversized Rhinestone cocktail earrings ($88) • Ann Taylor Maribou Feather Clutch ($135) • Nicole Miller embellished satin bridal sash ($330) • Chanel matte lipstick in L'Exquise ($34) • Badgley Mishka 'Ginnie' peep toe pump ($130) • Giambattista Valli Twisted Crepe Gown ($2395)
