Finding Modest Dresses for Weddings and Dances

Jul 12, 2008
Shopping for a prom dress, a bridesmaid dress or a wedding dress should be fun rather than frustrating, but fashion trends can make it pretty difficult to find a modest dress for any occasion in most stores. For a young woman who wants to show respect for her body and dress modestly, this presents a real problem leads to bitter disappointment. After all, they have waited years to go to the prom, become a bridesmaid or the bride herself, and now there is nothing suitable to wear.

Some girls are blessed with a mother, neighbor or relative who can work wonders with a sewing machine, but fewer and fewer women fall into this category every year. After all, making a dress takes a lot of time and effort and sewing seems to be a dying art in many communities. Not to mention the fact that the rising fabrics prices make even home-made clothes an expensive investment. As a result, many women simply have to spend hours and hours traipsing from store to store looking for a dress that meets there needs.

If you have had enough of searching for a modest dress, let alone the perfect dress, let me give you a few suggestions. First off, move beyond your geographical boundaries by using the web. You may not be able to try a dress on before you order it, but you can save a lot of time and money that would have gone into commuting and you'll have access to a much larger selection.

Second, focus your attention on Utah dress stores. Utah is a good state to hone in on for two reasons. First, there are more weddings performed in Utah every year than in any other state in the country and second, the predominant religion in the Utah is a big fan of modesty. These two facts make Utah the perfect place to search for modest dresses.

As you riffle through the pictures and prices online, you will find several trends in Utah dresses. For example, the prom dresses are usually glitzier and more expensive than the bridesmaids dresses. This is partly due to the different atmospheres at a wedding and a prom and partly due to the amount of material and embellishments in the dress; the more material in the skirt, the more expensive the dress. Whether you are searching for a modest bridesmaid dress or a modest prom dress, you will definitely find a large selection of colors, styles and prices though.

Utah's specialty in the dress department seems to be modest wedding gowns. There are literally hundreds of styles across the state that all manage to beautiful and modest at the same time. You can choose from A-line dresses, princess skirts, long trains, simple styles or fancy beadwork and lace that cover the bodice, hem and train. Many dresses come in several different shades of white as well, like ivory, champaign, bright-white and cream. With so many options to chose from, you're bound to find something you love.
