Mrs. Avocado had a watters dress altered to add more sleeve onto it, and I second Mrs. Glitter’s amazing dress as well. Also, Avo’s sister Shay had a pretty cool dress too. Good luck in your search!

I think if you search Pronovias (2010 collection and Manuel Mota), you’ll see some really beautiful gowns that are modest but very classic and stylish.  I’ve drooled over Pronovias gowns for years now. 🙂  They also, being a Spanish company (and therefore, catering to some Catholic brides) have plenty of pretty lace overlays and boleros to keep things modest.  Seriously, check it out.

I didn’t think you were being offensive when you said that about LDS dresses. They are, in my opinion, on the extreme end of ‘modest’ and i just got the impression you wanted something in between.

I’m not LDs but since you put my response in quotes, just letting you know how i interpretted that! There is a very wide range of modest gowns available. =]

The Justin Alexander 9552 was my second choice. I would have reccomended that one, but I also know it’s in the $2500-2800 range :-/ It is completely gorgeous however! It would have been worth the splurge. You can see all the images of me in it IRL on this thread 

After 2 years of waiting… I tried it on! MANY PICS!

Stephanie Allen has some as well… 

Kelly was my fave….

Glenda from sottero and midgley

Or, maybe this Jasmine one? There’s a lot of modest one shoulder dresses… would that work?

I second those who have said Pronovias. My dress is Pronovias and has beautiful lace cap sleeves that don’t look overly covered up.

Mine was Anjolique #921.  I think it was very modest, no cleavage and it had 3/4 sleeves.

I ordered a strapless dress (after kicking and screaming about NOT wanting one) and had the store owner order extra fabric.  Her seamstress is going to make cap sleeves for my dress out of the fabric.  Woohoo!

I LOVE this Amy Kuschel dress. It is very modest, but also very sophisticated. I probably would have chosen it, but it would be too hot for my wedding.

@cakegal – I am pretty sure a friend of FH’s wore this dress for her wedding last month, esp. because she lives in San Francisco.  She looked amazing!

If LDS dresses are TOO modest for you, then you can always design your own and have your grandmother sew it for you. That way you get the exact look you want.

Definitely love the idea of a strapless gown with a bolero over it, I think it would really compliment it, especially for the religious aspect of it, along with your family members beliefs.

Thank you so much for this thread, ladies!!  I’ve been looking for a modest wedding dress and the links and suggestions you’ve all provided are so much fun to look at!  I’m not LDS, but I’m looking for a modest dress to cover up the tattoos on my back, and also to be respectful of my rather conservative family.
