If you can find Alfred Sung dresses for a good price, they have some options with sleeves.  They are v-neck, but I am sure you could get a little modesty piece sewn in.

I really like these ones (and I know at least the first one is super cute on):

Here are my girls in the charcoal AS’s.  I know they paid quite a bit more, but stuff is expensive in Canada and you could probably use an online, no-frills retailer.

@tangerine357:  Here’s an Alfred Angelo with cap sleeves. But here’s an idea — maybe pick a good length in spaghetti strap or strapless for everyone, and then do a cute litte bolero, cardigan or shawl in a matching or coordinating color for the more modest maids? Beyond charcoal, what are your colors?

Both Venus and Allure carry modest lines that I’m sure would coordinate with their regular lines. You can also go into pretty much any bridal shop in Utah and find what you’re looking for in terms of sleeves/length. ๐Ÿ™‚

You can’t actually order dresses from dessy.com. Dessy is the group that makes Alfred Sung, Dessy, and After Six dresses. You can buy accessories and swatches and stuff from their site, but must visit a retailer to buy the dresses (or order from an online retailer like netbride.com or houseofbrides.com).

I like village_skeptic’s idea of letting the two modest BMs wear a cute bolero. Yellow would be really cute, to match your groomsmen.

Maybe all of the BMs could agree on a one-shoulder style like this one? http://www.billlevkoff.com/style/bridesmaid-dress/189

It covers up on top for the more modest brides (maybe not their shoulders, but there would definitely be no boobage) but is also a cute style and doesn’t give off an “I’m modest” vibe, so the other girls might still like it.

these are from nordstrom, they are around 140, but maybe you can find a coupon to get them for less… They are both Adriana Papell and come in the color “smoke”

If you do want to go the Alfred Sung route – i found the prices on netbride.com to be quite reasonable.  Good luck!

@tangerine357:  You’re welcome! I’m excited that their dresses are all on super sale — might have to splurge a little myself. ๐Ÿ™‚
