Finding a Modest Wedding Gown Fit for a Princess


How does one find a modest bridal gown that still makes you feel like a princess?

In brief:
• Don’t be afraid to go international with your modesty search. Browse the online galleries.
• Ask the bridal salon if they are willing to adapt a design to your specifications, such as raising the neckline of styles like these from www.MaggieSottero.com in Australia.



• If they say no or are too expensive, right click on the picture you like and save it.
• Contact a local designer/seamstress and ask her to bring your picture to life.
• Found a nice pattern in a sewing store? Grab it. Fashions vanish away…it will be gone next season.

In the past 3 weeks I have spent hours surfing online bridal stores in several countries. Mountains of dresses, very few modest gowns. I did find a handful of sites, details of which you will find in the Modest Bridal Collections post, but Boutique Narelle needs someone to do a comprehensive regional search in this high demand area of modest dressing. Would you like to be a Bridal Specialist for Boutique Narelle? Check the application details in the Job Vacancies post.

Another way you can help prospective brides is to share how you found a modest bridal/formal gown. Did you purchase a ready-made gown, buy a pattern and make it yourself, or find a picture and a designer? Send your picture and/or photo of your gown to BoutiqueNarelle@xtra.co.nz and tell us about it.

This is Andrea. She lives in Australia. She and her sisters Danielle and Lauren had a huge hassle finding modest bridalwear when they were planning her wedding. They found a lot of the Latter Day Saint bridal stores helpful for ideas, but of course they're in the US. Andrea and Lauren ended up finding a picture of one they loved and then drafting the pattern themselves. It turned out BEAUTIFUL, Danielle says.

I'm sure your fiancee has a good idea what she wants. =)She'll at least know what she doesn't want, and that's just as helpful. Knock out the Not Wants one at a time and one day you'll be left with the one she does want. There are lots of modest bridal options promoted on Boutique Narelle. Have a browse through the Bridal and Formal sections. All the best!
