Back Necklaces: The perfect accessory for low back wedding dresses

The back of your wedding dress is just as important as the front, especially as it’s on show to all your guests as you exchange those special vows. This is why many of our dresses have sumptuous low backs. And what better way to highlight them than with a gorgeous back necklace.

What is a back necklace?

A back necklace is designed to be worn on the back, rather than the front, of the body. It typically features a chain or pendant that drapes down the spine, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any outfit.

Back necklaces are especially popular for low-back wedding dresses, as they draw attention to this often-overlooked area and create a stunning visual effect.

Some back necklaces are worn around the neck – providing a shorter necklace at the front – or are attached to the back of the wedding dress directly.

How to choose the right back necklace for your wedding dress

When choosing a back necklace to complement your wedding dress, consider the style and neckline of the dress.

A delicate chain with a small pendant works well with a simple, elegant dress, while a bold, statement piece can add drama to a more elaborate gown.

Also make sure you get the length right. Many back necklaces come in various lengths – and obviously the lower the back, the longer you can go!

From back necklaces with pearls to those with sparkling crystals, if you’re looking to add something special to your big day look, here are our favourite adornments to decorate your beautiful back...
