Modest Wedding Gowns For The Modern Bride

So, I guess we can thank Kate Middleton for ushering in the trend of the modest bride, cuz honey child, sleeves are in! More and more wedding gowns are coming with sleeves already attached (novel idea, no?), and it's making it easier and easier for modest women everywhere to get bridal gowns that don't need to be completely altered to meet modest specifications. Gone can be the days of choosing a strapless, sleeveless wedding gown and building it up--makes me kind of happy that I have yet to get myself one of these bad boys! With  these fresh-off-the-runway gowns from Monique Lhullier, Oscar de la Renta, Theia, Temperly London, and Marchesa, I see a bright and modest future in your bridal dreams. Now all of these are not necessarily perfection in the way of full on modesty, but hey, we gotta start somewhere.

And now for some real brides (that I found on Pinterest) who totally and completely rocked the modest looks at their wedding--and they're not even on OnlySimchas. See, real women do like sleeves!

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post; I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    B"H Debbie - until 120! Your blog is a stellar concept and for one, I am REALLY PROUD OF YOU for promoting tznius as the timeless glamour that it is!!

    That having been said, it would be great to see some more input (spoken or unspoken) from guys... there are some women in the workplace who are consciously modest all the time - and I'm talking about Jewish AND non-Jewish! - Meanwhile, a lot of women who dress with the current revealing styles don't understand that whether a woman is attractive or not, to a lot of men, may have nothing to do with exposure... some women with guys buzzing around them always dress up to code (even though they probably never even HEARD of Shulchan Aruch). In fact, they make the uncovered women around them look so non-class.

    Your blog tells women they really HAVE a choice!

  6. I love your blog name! "Other Aron Ha'Kodesh" - hilarious! I'd never thought of that before. :) Being Jewish and speaking Hebrew it was quite humorous to me.

    And yes, I love the fact that Kate has helped to bring back sleeves into fashion. Besides the fact that you might catch pneumonia in a strapless gown if it's winter, and besides the fact that you may have a hard time keeping a strapless dress to stay in place, it just makes everyone more comfortable (and it's infinitely classier) when you show more fabric and less skin. ;)

    Keep up the good work!
