Wedding gown

Looks like modesty is in!

First it was long-sleeved wedding dresses, and now the wedding dress modesty trend has moved to covering up the neck and upper chest! While we can’t say that we were huge fans of plunging necklines or copious cleavage for the big day, we’re still trying to make up our minds on this trend. Like long-sleeved wedding dresses, gowns with higher necklines can lend a sweet and unexpected touch to a bride’s wedding day style. However, this style probably won’t be every bride’s cup of tea! Here are some of our favorite looks, with high necklines being worn by everyone from every day ladies to super models, actresses to president’s daughters (Lauren Bush looks fab below!).

 So what do you think, readers? Are modest dresses with higher necklines downright adorable, or more Downton Abbey?
