Modest Wedding Gowns
A Jewish wedding is a joyous occasion, but it can be challenging for Orthodox Jewish women to find modest bridal gowns that adhere to the Tzniyus (modesty) rules that they live by. These rules, a central part of the ultra Orthodox Jewish, or Frum, culture require that the bride wear a modest bridal gown that only shows her face and hands.
Just because an Orthodox Jewish bride is shopping for a modest wedding gown, though, does not mean that she is not interested in a beautiful gown for a day that she will tell her children and grandchildren about.
Instead of low cut necklines and short hemlines, modest wedding gowns, though still white, have beautiful long flowing skirts that graze the floor. They also have long sleeves in different styles, which may be accented with rosettes or ribbons for a special effect. Far from plain, these wedding gowns are often heavily embroidered, accented with lace overlays or otherwise embellished, depending on the bride's taste, which makes the bride feel like a queen for a day.
Although an Orthodox Jewish bride may luck into a modest wedding dress in a mainstream bridal shop, she is much more likely to find a great modest bridal gown if she visits a store that specializes in this niche industry.
