Dawn Strong

Every bride wants to make a statement - and, trust us... there's no better way to do that than with your wedding gown. This year, we're all about showing off a little skin and hopping on the plunging back bandwagon with six stunning gowns from Sottero and Midgley of Maggie Sottero Designs. One part totally chic and one part seriously sexy, these are dresses that will most definitely leave all of your guests talking. We promise. RAQUELLE BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEYWhy we love it: Fashion-forward brides, this one's for you. A Shavon Organza wedding dress that definitely lives by the mantra that more is more. From the modern bateau neckline to the romantic beaded lace motifs to the Swarovski crystal-adorned cap sleeves, the Raquelle is a red-carpet worthy style if we've ever seen one. And that back + skirt combo? Amazing. WINIFRED BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEY

Why we love it: We're calling this one "traditional with a twist." A lace sheath beauty that combines classic elegance with sexy detailing, the Winifred is perfect for those of you who want wow-inducing detail, but don't want to step too far outside the box. Good thing Sottero and Midgley know everything there is to know about fusing bold style into each of their gorgeous gowns, because this one's a show-stopper. And, bonus - it has a short delivery date.

CELINE BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEYWhy we love it: For brides who are planning a more relaxed, yet sophisticated affair - the Celine is perfect. All gorgeous lace and tulle, this is a dress that flows flawlessly from garden locale to beach celebration. We obviously love the V-back, and those spaghetti straps are more than ready for that dance party with all of your friends and family. ARLEIGH BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEYWhy we love it: With its long sleeves, illusion open back and embellished jewel neckline, the Arleigh is definitely bringing the sexy. We absolutely adore the crystal buttons that run the entire length of the train and the silky smooth Talin Stretch Crepe fabric. Old Hollywood glamour, meet the 21st Century. NOAH BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEYWhy we love it: Oh, Noah... how we love thee. From the Swarovski crystal-embellished lace motifs to the modern crepe silhouette to the jewel neckline, we can't wait to see you real brides rock this one down the aisle. And that train? The cutout detailing is everything. PRESCA BY SOTTERO AND MIDGLEYWhy we love it: Sottero and Midgley call the Presca an "elevated boho" beauty, but we're just calling this lace and tulle wedding dress perfection. Think illusion straps, a stunning scoop back and a fit and flare silhouette to show off those curves. This is the definition of high glamour, you guys... and it's most definitely making a statement. Sottero and Midgley's lineup of couture wedding gowns is basically everything you've ever wanted - especially if you're on the lookout for styles that highlight a breathtaking open back.
