stunning wedding dresses for a traditional ceremony cover

Finding the right dress for a classic wedding ceremony in a chapel, church, synagogue and other religious places has its difficulties. The choice is kinda limited because you can’t let yourself to show up there wearing a dress with a short skirt or a gown with a deep plunging neckline with bare shoulders as covering up is one of the main conditions to enter such a place. But even though it seems puzzling to find a dress that would be a fit in such a case and would still look fantastic, we’ve gathered a whole bunch of such gowns that are sure to inspire you, take a look!

Wedding Dresses For Church Ceremonies

The first and most obvious way to go is to rock a beautiful wedding dress that would cover the whole body or almost the whole – with a high neckline, a maxi one and with long or half length sleeves. Cutout backs are questionable, if there’s not much skin seen, they can be allowed (consult your church first). Now, what can we rock? A gorgeous lace and fully embellished wedding dress with long sleeves and a high neckline – such bold detailing doesn’t require anything else, cutouts, deep necklines or slits. A refined vintage or modern wedding ballgown with a full skirt, a lace bodice and illusion sleeves or short ones, a refined bateau or just high neckline will be a great idea here. A romantic lace fitting or semi-fitting wedding dress with long sleeves and a turtleneck plus some train – a trendy and chic idea. A vintage silk or lace wedding dress with a modest neckline and long sleeves, perhaps a train. A modern plain or boho lace wedding dress with a front slit, short or long sleeves and a high neckline – I can’t name all of them, take a look at them below!

Wedding Capelets

One more solution if you still want a strapless, low back or plunging neckline wedding dress is a capelet. Consider wearing a trendy beaded and lace capelet or even a bolero over your wedding dress, and then the number of options will be even bigger. Your capelet can be a super long one with a train, so you can easily skip a veil and stick to something edgy. If you don’t want a large cover up, prefer a small sheer one with embellishments or a lace one to cover up the skin you need to hide, and it will be a beautiful addition to your outfit. Get inspired!
