Maternity Wedding Gowns

By John Jones

If it seems like most of the wedding gowns out there are either strapless, sleeveless, or just generally revealing, you are right. While a generation ago, bridal gowns were not marketed as being sexy, today many gowns definitely fit that description. Brides who want a more modest wedding gown, whether for reasons of religion, wanting to feel more covered, or simply personal style often feel like they are never going to be able to find the perfect wedding dress. But do not despair: modest wedding gowns do exist!

Choosing designer wedding gowns is no small decision. One way that you can greatly enhance your odds of finding the right wedding dress faster, is by choosing the right bridal boutique. A professional bridal boutique whether it is offline or online, should have a top of the line consulting team, and should be knowledgeable in the latest fashions. Your bridal consultant should be able to give you the inside scoop on designer gowns, letting you know off new trends that they are incorporating into their latest seasonal line.

For brides who simply prefer classic over sexy in a A-line Wedding Dresses, there are some very nice options available. A classic bateau neckline gown with a tulle skirt would be a lovely choice. Add some elegant pearl bridal jewelry to play up the 1950s inspiration of this style. If you prefer a gown with sleeves, it is a simple matter to add cap sleeves, three-quarter, or long sleeves to this neckline.

Designer gowns are not cheap. If finances are an issue, consider what it is about the designer wedding gowns that have you so hooked. If you can find a dress that meets your dream idea but costs less, all the better for you. Another option that you might consider is buying a designer wedding gown from last season. These dresses will often be discounted because bridal boutiques want to stock their stores with most current fashions. Just because the dress is from a previous season, doesn't make it any less lovely, and perhaps more in your price range.

Too much cleavage can be a major challenge for well endowed brides. If you want everyone to focus on your happy face rather than your ample bustline, a more modest gown is a must. But be careful to avoid dresses with very high necklines like bateau necks. Yes, they will hide your cleavage, but you will also look like you are nothing but bust from the neck down! A better solution is to choose a dress with a flattering neckline, and have the designer raise the neckline as needed to tuck everything in. V-necks are particularly flattering on fuller busted brides, as the straight lines are minimizing.
