Have you found a gown yet? Try:
They’re based in Sandy, Utah (about 25 min from SLC airport) and have trendier dresses that don’t look like a cookie-cutter style dress that you see on several LDS brides, being LDS myself I thought several temple-ready gowns lacked style but this Bridal Expressions is great. I also hated the idea of wearing a bolero with a strapless, I think some boleros kill the look of strapless, since there are so many beautiful strapless styles. I also did not want to pay an extra $250+ on altering a strapless gown to make it temple appropriate and risk having the gown look like patchwork!
I wanted to look stylish but also dress in a manner that He respectfully deserves in a house of worship. BX has two locations in Sandy, one having all their latest and greatest merchandise (starting at about $700 and up to $2000) and their other store is their discounted stock from last season ($99-$450) but very beautiful and not dirty or ripped like other on sale gowns. I bought mine at their outlet and I couldn’t be happier! I will need to post a picture of my dress at some point. They do carry some strapless styles

If you want custom made dress and have a huge budget for it check out Jessica May. She’s based in UT so you will need to budget for travel as she will only do fittings in person.
Alta Moda is a bridal shop in Salt Lake carrying brands like Vera and Monique. They cater to alot of brides that request sleeves and the designers work very well for these type of requests from their customers. Also check A Bride Beautiful and Avenia Bridal.
Maybe make a trip to Utah instead of New York to purchase a gown?
