Bolero jackets are a great way for brides to be modest without having to alter the original dress design.

The bride wore: a latte-colored Monique Lhuillier two-piece evening gown. “I did not want a typical white strapless wedding gown,” she explains. “I found a wonderful latte-colored gown with a golden sheen. I felt stylish, sophisticated and beautiful—not just bridal!”

  1. Wow these are all so beautiful! I honestly can't decide which one I like best, I like them all the same!! I love how "modest" doesn't necessarily mean plain or boring anymore with all the new options out there! Thanks for these finds Sarah!! Too bad I'm already married! haha.

  2. You're spot on! Modest doesn't mean boring anymore, it's awesome the direction things are going. These bolero jackets are AWESOME. I spent $200 to alter my dress, wish I could have just worn one of those. I tell ya, I look at these gorgeous modest wedding gowns and think, let's do it all over again! Same groom, different dress! :)

  3. I my goodness…..I ADORE the second dress….the latte colored one! I wanted to have color on my dress and my mother flipped out over it, lol. I think colored gowns or colored sashes, embroidery, whatever…is gorgeous! It just adds a lot of interest I think.

    BTW….I'm obsessed with weddings, too. I do custom aisle runners and other custom, hand painted wedding accessories. :)

  4. So cool that you're digging this latte colored dress! It's super unique. Love that brides are incorporating color into their digs. Of course something blue has always been welcome, but the bride in the latte dress had GREEN SHOES! Almost Tiffany's turquoise, they were awesome.

    Weddings are definitely fabulous. Cool aisle runners!
