Deciding the best wedding dress may seem daunting sometimes—especially if you want a more covered gown. It is, in fact, really okay not to feel comfortable with strapless or off-the-shoulder dresses that show more of your skin. However, these modest wedding dresses are not very popular, making them underrated in society.
Princess Diana’s Pouf-Sleeved Gown
Designed by a team of designers who happen to be husband and wife, David and Elizabeth Emanuel, Princess Diana’s ivory gown was made with taffeta fabric and intricately embellished with beautiful lace, sequins, as well as around 10,000 pearls, making it cost $115,000. Many modest wedding dresses nowadays are copycat dresses of Lady Di’s.
Pouf sleeves and 25-foot skirt train are the most interesting elements of the gown. Even more impressive was the super-long tulle veil attached to Princess Diana’s tiara. The veil is 153-yard long—much longer than the skirt train—adding a regal touch to the whole look.
Duchess Kate Middleton’s Victorian-Styled Gown
Created by another Alexander McQueen’s designer, the Duchess Kate Middleton’s dress is a combination of modernity and traditional style. The sweetheart neckline bodice was designed based on an inspiration of traditional Victorian corsetry while interestingly adorned with gorgeous laced long sleeves with V-neckline.
The most impressive parts about Kate’s ivory tulle gown are the nine-foot-long skirt train and the fact that the lace all over the bodice and skirt is a handmade product by the Royal School of Needlework.
Rose “Ygritte” Leslie’s Vintage-Styled Dress
As an actress who starred in one of the world’s most popular TV series, “Game of Thrones”, Rose Leslie chose to be humble and modest on her special day. She picked a modest vintage-styled wedding dress designed by Elie Saab which happened to be one of the designer’s collections of the Bridal Spring 2017.
The classic ivory fit-and-flare dress is covered in soft lace with a high sweetheart neckline and long sheer sleeves. Rose also wore a flower crown attached to a simple, long tulle veil. Her dress is one of the most recommended modest wedding dresses.
