I LOVE lace sleeves and coverage, looks so romantic.  It’s one thing I kinda wish I had done with my dress.

Search for Mormon bridal shops, they have dresses with sleeves and without those plunging necklines.

You could also consider your strapless dress idea and put a lace bolero over it. You could even attach the bolero if you’re worried you’ll be tempted to take it off.

Oh i LOOOVE Ivanka Trumps dress. So gorgeous.

But i do think a strapless dress with a bolero is probably your best option since you find LDS dresses to be “too modest”.

@Sweetbride….what sites were you looking at the LDS wedding dresses?  I got mine from a LDS store and hate to think mine lacked any style. lol  I saw someone included some links to latterdaybride.com.  I would check them out.  There were some gorgeous dresses and varied alot in style as well.

@ SweetRose, I love the mcbrides dress and the maggie dress.  Either of those would look great, but my favorite is the mcbrides dress.  Good luck both of those are beautiful!!!!!!!

What do you think of Mrs. Glitter’s dress. I think it looks modest and she’s one of the most gorgeous brides I have seen.

My wedding gown is an Eternity Gown.  They sell them at bridal shoppes, so you won’t have to order them online.  I drove two hours away to a shop that sold the brand and in the end they had some modest gowns to try on, but not the one I wanted.  What I ended up doing was researching different cuts of wedding gowns and trying dresses of that cut to see what cut look best on me.  When I was confident that the cut would look wonderful, I ordered the gown I wanted from the bridal shop.  Nice thing was that they added length to my exact specifications so I didn’t need to get a hem.  I also read that you can special order the dress to have different sleeve options.

Bonny also has a modest collection called “Bliss.”  I only found one store that sold them and the only dresses they had to try on from that collection were plus sized.
