I sort of had the same issue. I had a really specific image in my mind, and I couldnt find it anywhere. I ended up with a Casablanca dress that has lace, straps, a small train, etc. Casablanca is great because they are one of the few designers that will alter their dresses-so I am having the shape of my dress completely changed. I suggest you check out their line 🙂

Allure M484? I think this is really beautiful for a bride going for a modest look.

I had a similar issue when I was looking for my dress. I wanted something simple and classic. I found that bigger stores carried way too many similar styles. Everything looked the same, and wasn’t my taste. Have you tried looking at independent designers and smaller boutiques? I obsessively scoured the interet for styles I liked, and then tried to find stores that carried similar styles to dresses I liked and came across local boutiques that felt more my style. In this crazy search, I came across the Dusk dress by Elizabeth Dye and fell in love with it. It comes in a full length as well, but sadly it wasn’t meant to be for me. If you’re willing to take a leap of faith, try browsing Etsy as well. I ended up purchasing my dress on Etsy (Ouma) and I can’t wait to get it.

It takes some research I can tell you!!!!  I wanted a specific style that YES had sleeves!!!  Shock Horror…… lol… I ended up finding a designer over in Scotland that will be making my dress..

I found that the more modest versions of dresses seems to be over in Europe.. but designer and more expensive!  🙁

you can always add a bolero for more coverage.  That’s what I’m doing.
