Modest Style Wedding Dresses
Tradition often plays an important role in a wedding, influencing everything from how the ceremony is performed to what the wedding dress should look like. Despite the popular opinion, many brides are excited to wear a wedding dress that honors the tradition, customs and their religion. Trends come and go, but demure and sophisticated bridal gowns never go out of style. You do not have to lower your dress standards just because all the wedding dresses available seem to be backless, strapless or with plunging necklines. For our conservative and religious brides we have handpicked a selection of wedding dresses that balance style and tradition.
This Marys Bridal Moda Bella MB2010 fitted wedding gown features a lace bodice, with lacy straps edging the plunging sweetheart neckline and open V-back. The long satin skirt flares with an off-center slit, finished with covered buttons trailing along the center back toward the court train. Faux crystals embellish the sheer modesty insert. Available in sizes 2 to 24.
This Jovani 54789 white formal dress begins with an asymmetrical neckline, edged with cut-off sleeve on one side and a butterfly sleeve on the other. This slim-flare prom gown is fashioned in neoprene, with a slightly ruched bodice and sweep train.
Made of hand-beaded lace, this Mon Cheri 117179 wedding slip dress features spaghetti straps and a plunging sweetheart neck with a criss-cross back. The plunge falls beneath a beaded modesty panel, while the lacey spaghetti straps round the shoulders. Fitted through the hips, the gown has a slight flare and falls to a scalloped hem with a sweep train. The back is open with criss-crossing straps to finish.
The sweetheart bodice of this Marys Bridal tulle 6520 wedding dress is overlaid with Venice lace, creating an illusion V-neckline and three-quarter sleeves. Sequins accent the lace and covered buttons adorn the back with an upper illusion panel. Lace appliques embellish the layered A-line skirt below the waistline and a chapel train completes this gown.
This Mori Lee Voyage 6888 Karolina allover lace beach wedding gown features illusion long sleeves, framing the illusion V-neckline and open V-back. This slim fit and flare destination bridal dress fits through mid-thigh, and flares softly to a scalloped hem and semi-chapel train. Available in sizes 0 to 28.
A floral-embroidered sweetheart bodice meets with a chiffon skirt in this Mori Lee 6861 Mina wedding dress, with spaghetti straps going into the corset back.

This Jovani 55247 white prom dress features a tonal-beaded sheer corset bodice, detailed with a sweetheart neckline, exposed boning and cold-shoulder straps. Layers of novelty tulle comprise the gathered skirt, flaring off the basque waist to a full-length hem.
Modesty does not mean compromising style. On the contrary, it means embracing a classic look that transcends trends and passing fashion. It's fun to look at the current dress trends, but you want to make sure that your dress is something you will proudly show to your grandchildren someday.
Even the bridal designers are picking up on this. On the latest Bridal Fashion Week in New York, we could see that modesty has become one of the distinguished trends in wedding wear. Every major collection features covered-up gowns with long sleeves, high necklines and long A-line skirts. And ever since Kate Middelton rocked a chic Alexander McQueen lace, V-neck bridal gown, all the brides to be were on the lookout for less revealing wedding dresses. Vintage inspired lace bridal gowns became the most sought-out item in bridal salons and luxurious fabrics like silk and charmeuse.
Conservative Wedding Dresses with Sleeves
Choosing to wear a more conservative gown doesn’t mean that you need to look frumpy. Take a look at the fully covered styles that flatter your shape, but are still appropriate for religious ceremony in a church or a temple. You can look stunning even with your arms, shoulders and back covered. With details like accentuated waist, satin or delicate lace motifs you can add a touch of glamour to a demure style. Pick from long sleeves and ¾ sleeves, or cap sleeves for warmer seasons.
If you are planning a religious ceremony you should make sure that your dress satisfies your style as well as the standards of modesty. That can be challenging, but you might have more options than you think. At Madame Bridal we carry designs created with LDS or conservative brides in mind that are perfect for a Mormon, Catholic or an Orthodox Jewish ceremony. You will also find wedding gowns inspired by white temple dresses with full-length skirt and simple, crisp and well-tailored silhouette.
Browse through our selection of modest wedding dresses and find your dream dress. Filter by neckline, length or silhouette amongst other options, to find a dress that fits your personal style and adheres to the religious guidelines.Plus-sizes and additional lengths are also available.
