“ A must see for the bride who wants a designer modest dress. Contemporary styling, modest wedding dress with unique style and exquisite detail. „
I've been to a few weddings, though one stands out in my memory like a sore thumb. The reception was dressed with fancy ribbons, silk table clothes, fresh flowers and elegent centre pieces on the tables...the bride wore a tight fitting sleeveless down, white satin with red flowers along the train....beautiful. She moved with such grace and smiled serenely at the guests as she walked passed me. Then, to my horror, she stopped in her tracks, furrowed her brows and yanked her dress up to keep her gown from falling down to her waist....she repeated this every 10 or so minutes. The magical aura dissappeared...never to be reclaimed.
Why? Why do we put ourselves through this misery? The answer is simple: There's NO OTHER DRESSES TO CHOOSE FROM! Everything on the bridal market is sleeveless (unless you count the vintage dresses you can get in charity shops)
When It came to MY wedding, I was determined that I would NOT be another bride who would look back on my wedding video and cringe. I also didn't want my guests wincing as I ungracefully yank my dress up and I wanted a nice modest dress that was pretty as well. That is when I found Bridal Expressions!
Oh wow. This site is amazing. Hundred of beautiful dresses that actually have a top half to a wedding dress!! Short sleeves, long sleeves, lace, satin, silk, cotton, princess neck, square neck, scoop, v neck....SO many designs. The bodice designs are gorgeous. You can have darts, beading, emroidary, pearls, dimonte, stitching....the list is endless!
The dresses come in every size and the prices are incredibly reasonable! The only down side is that they are based in America. So if you are ordering from the UK, you need to factor in postage and customs costs. Plus, the delivery times are quite long.
I would reccommend this site to any bride. Even if you don't care about have a "modest" dress, it is nice to see some different designs and have a dress that will make heads turn and jaws drop.
EDIT: I thought I bought my dress from here - but turns out not. It's the similar idea though.
