Sticking with my last post’s theme of modest dresses… I’m sharing 15 STUNNING modest wedding dresses today. You can even order them online if you wish!
Now, my wedding wasn’t the most conventional affair. I had just a few days to get a dress and get my butt to the courthouse! So, needless to say… I never had the beautiful white dress experience! My husband and I always love to talk about one day doing a renewal of vows ceremony to make up for it. So, I’m always looking at wedding dresses for “someday.”
15 Gorgeous Modest Wedding Dresses You Can Buy Online
Below are 15 of my favorite modest wedding dresses that you can buy online. (I’m allll about online shopping, especially with the way this last year went!) These modest wedding dresses range from traditional and vintage-style to modern and trendy and beyond. Some of these wedding dresses are also less than $500 (but there are a few in the thousands, too). I would love to hear which of these dresses is your favorite in the comments section at the end!

2.) Melissa Sweet Embroidered Illusion Mock Neck Wedding Dress
Ornate lace and floral applique are layered atop illusion mesh and tulle to form this modern heirloom wedding dress. This dress is one of my favorites because of its beautiful high mock neckline and A-line skirt.
3.) Rara Avis Boho Wedding Dress With Long Train
Looking for the perfect boho wedding dress? Look no further! This handmade wedding dress is an absolute stunner. Although, the open back maybe a bit too risque for me, personally. (I think this could still be modest with leaving your hair down in the back, though.)

The perfect princess wedding dress – Cinderella would be jealous! This handmade dress features a lace bodice with long sheer lace sleeves, buttons in the back, tulle + lace skirt.
