More Modest Wedding Dress Inspo
Ready to get shopping for your head-to-toe bridal look? When accessorizing a modest wedding dress, pay attention to how pieces like jewelry, flower crowns, veils, shrugs, and shoes elevate the demure charm of your look. For example, a gorgeous pair of statement earrings adds a contemporary flair to a simple and slimming modest style. However, they may clash with a voluminous princess silhouette or textured lace gown.
Likewise, a veil or shrug can give your look an air of formality and occasion, but the wrong piece can add bulk and unwanted clutter. Modest bridal gowns are timeless and classic, so it’s important to choose details that both distinguish and balance.
There you have it—our top trending modest wedding dresses with demure styling and gorgeous details!
