@Miss Stella: Try Shabby Apple for Bridesmaid’s dresses. Though those are on-line too….

I liked some of the selections on prettybridesmaids.com …you do need to order through a bridal store, though.  We ended up going with the infinity dress, which can be very modest with correct wrapping and a modesty piece underneath.

Where was this when I was searching. lol.

I ended up making my own/using a doner. Inspired by 3 dresses; Grace Kelly/Vogues 2979/Justin Alexander.

I do have a 2nd dress I’ll be using for the recpetion from Casablanca, but that will be modified soon to cover my shoulders! Right now I’m searching for the right material and design.

Wow! Great idea!

I am also in a similar boat. The priest wants shoulders covered. So I have decided to pay a visit to David’s Bridal and buy the sleeves which can be sewed on. (Or you can pin them in yourself to remove easily later.) Though expensive, but they look very nice and get the job done. I don’t know yet if the Canadian store carries them so I have to call. Gaah!

I live in Las Vegas, so our idea of modest is a strapless long gown lol. But my veil has so much thick lace that you barely notice my gown is strapless so I am well covered…
