The Iris modest wedding dress... I love this dress, and I know there are many happy brides out there who have chosen and loved this dress as well :) Where do I begin, there are so many great things about this dress (no, I'm not biased at all)! This is probably my most "fun" design yet, and it is a style that looks good on pretty much everyone, no matter what your body type. This style of modest wedding dress is perfect for a wedding in spring, summer or fall (or if you are lucky enough to live in a place that is warm all year round, anytime). The tea length and short cap sleeves keep you cool during those hot months, and allow for comfort AND style on your big day.
The skirt has eight (yes, eight) layers of chiffon, satin, organza and crinoline; it just makes you want to twist and twirl. The skirt is so flowy and comfortable, you won't have to worry about whether or not you will actually be able to sit or move in your wedding dress.
The bateau neckline is an elegant classic; it is not so modest that it is stifling, but gives you peace of mind so that you are not worried about having anything show that shouldn't. The sleeves are the perfect length of cap sleeves; long enough so that lds temple garments can be covered if necessary, but short enough that your arms won't be completely restricted in movement.
Even though the dress itself is so flowy, the bodice is still structured with boning and lined with bra cups. The sash around the waist accentuates a small waist, or creates the appearance of a small waist.
The chiffon covered buttons along the zipper line, the rouched sash and bow, and the organza peep underskirt come together to create a unique blend of vintage, modern and classic elegance for today's beautiful bride!
One more thing... the Iris wedding dress is named after my adorable niece, Iris!
