Keyhole Bridal Gowns

With one of the trending styles in bridal gowns being the bare keyhole back, we just had to learn more about this trend. Donna Holland, owner of Party Dress Express, New England's #1 retailer for Prom dresses, Wedding gowns, Bridesmaids dresses and Mother of the Bride & Groom dresses, introduced us to three kinds of style for the beautiful, back baring Bride:
Convertible: bridal gowns transform from keyhole back to stunning strapless gowns

A “convertible” keyhole bridal gown comes with a bolero or a coverlet that converts a strapless gown into a keyhole back dress. “This is a terrific way to change your style from a little more covered at the ceremony to something a little more daring at the reception,” Holland told us.

Romantic: lace and style achieve this look

“Romantic keyhole bridal gowns usually compensate for the open back with a high neckline or perhaps, shoulders straps. The added lace makes for a romantic look,” Holland told us.

Dramatic: dare to be bare?

For the woman who doesn’t shy away from showing a little skin on her big day, there are plenty of dramatic keyholes styles! “If you love a bridal gown with drama, this is the year for you.  A dramatic keyhole bridal  gown has a wider and longer opening in the back. We love these gowns because they garner surprise!” Holland told us.
