Modest Wedding Dresses
This article is for the modern bride who wants to focus on a simple and chic look for her wedding. Not all women are interested in going sumptuous and elaborated on their big day. The princess bridal look is still on, but statistics show us that more and more brides-to-be are choosing the simple natural look. It’s easier and more affordable to go for a modest wedding dress instead of a large extravagant design.
After all, if we are to consider the budget, the wedding dress is a one-time outfit that you will lock away in your closet and never wear again! Do you think that it’s a wise decision to purchase an expensive elaborated gown that you will never be able to wear again? Budget-conscious brides think not and we agree with them. Everyone is free to interpret the wedding dress the way the want and make their personal choice. Today we would like to focus on modest wedding dresses and their benefits.
When we say “modest” we don’t mean cheap or traditional. Some women identify the modest style with the long evasive sleeved dress designs that were popular in the old days. Others confound modesty with affordability and think that all modest wedding dresses are supposed to be cheap and easy to purchase by any bride. But this is not always the case. We’ve seen many charming modest silhouettes in our designer’s collections that looked ad beautiful as other sophisticated styles at the same price. So it’s not only about the price tag, but about the taste and style.
Not only those who are on a budget can purchase and wear a simple modest dress at their wedding but also those who care for something more discreet, nonchalant and minimalist adorned. When we say “modest” we refer to the blushing bride of today who wants to play soft, innocent and natural. We love the modest silhouettes created today by our fashion designers because they look very feminine, lightweight and pure.
The fluid lines, the clean surfaces and the delicate cuts can make any delicate bride fall in love with this style. Modest doesn’t mean bashful but refined. You don’t have to wear a high neck gown to obtain a modest look. Even a strapless dress can look decent and fit a casual or semi-formal wedding. But it’s true that the neckline is something important to consider when selecting or creating a modest gown. Boat necklines look indeed more elegant and stylish than bold cut sweetheart necks. If you care for something more revealing, choose a scoop neck of about an inch below the collar bone. You can wear a sleeved gown or long gloves to cover your arms for a more elegant and formal look.
