Okay, so I know what I am not looking for in a dress. I am not interested in a strapless or "poofy" dresses (no offense, they are LOVELY just not my style). I am also fairly certain I want something with a lot of romantic lace.
But more than anything else, I am looking for a dress with this style back, just a peak of skin, with lace. The problem with the two dresses below is the front is VERY plain, and I wanted just a little more "umph" on the romance factor. Has anyone found backs similar to these in their dress searches?

How about this one?

I know ML has a lot of dresses with backs like this, plus lots of detail and romantic lace on the front. Check this one out: http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/7717/Monique-Lhuillier-Fall-07-Size-2.html

Yeah, Monique Lhuillier is definitely the designer for you. She has lots of dresses with those kinds of backs. It’s hard to find pics of her stuff though so I’d suggest going to a shop that carries her dresses. Where are you? Her stuff is not carried everywhere, but she is definitely the designer you are looking for. You can find some on preownedweddingdresses though, as the previous poster mentioned. Good luck!

Check out Jim Hjelm and Alvina Valenta. They both have a few dresses similar to that!

My dress has a similar back! It’s the Nora by Priscilla of Boston (the Vineyard collection). The dress is all lace, but it doesn’t have any extra embellishment – not sure if it’s what you’re looking for.
They don’t have a picture of the back on the website, but if you google it you can find pictures. I found this on DC Nearlyweds:
Also, the lace collar is removable so it can be strapless, like this girl wore hers:

Have you looked at Ella by Essense? They have a really pretty one that’s very affordable!

You bees are great!
I am VERY familiar with Monique Lhuillier’s collections, somehow they just aren’t "it". I suppose the best way is to go to the bridal boutiques and try on a bunch, and when I know, I know. But Thank you for passing on in formation on designers that are similar.
