Whether the cutouts sneak around to an open back (above) or are strategically arranged in all the right places (below), this trend has been catching our eye on the 2016 runways. With a dress that speaks for itself, remember to keep your accessories to a minimum so that you can let it steal the spotlight when you walk down the aisle.

Are you getting married next summer or eloping to a tropical destination? Opt for a cutout wedding dress that gives you a little movement. You know, for when you're dipping your toes in the ocean and taking those long walks on the beach. The casual look of the wedding dress above is a great choice for laid-back brides who want to incorporate their boho style into their wedding day look. If you want to show some skin but still love the look of a traditional wedding dress, the fitted gown below gives you the best of both worlds.

If you want the look of a cutout wedding dress but aren't ready to bare it all, the illusion look is a great alternative. From embellished illusion necklines and cutout sides (above) to nude netting that hugs your curves (below), these dresses will make your guests do a double take.
