I think it's the lighting. I looked at a few photos of myself in it, and couldn't find the line.

To me it looks a lot like a seam.

Well, I said yes to that dress! Instead of silk faille it will be dupioni. A little heavier for a fall wedding.

Not sure about veil, bridal belt, etc. But now I know it's barre and spin time!

I have to fangirl over one of my favorite custom designers, Nancy Barrus who works out of Avenia Bridal in UT.

More fangirling over Alta Moda out of Utah. They specialize in working with designers to create custom modest gowns for LDS brides but some of them are seriously beautiful (without that obvious modest and ugly look.)

Those are beautiful and graceful without looking frumpy. Also, I love a cap sleeve on a dress.

I've known brides (in the last few years) who had to go to a 'modest' designer because they don't want a strapless dress which is almost the only style they they could find in regular boutiques. A friend wanted a full ball gown (princess) skirt for her dress and had a hard time finding that. She did get one, but almost everything was a-line or mermaid.

It's funny that most people say that it is hard to find stuff with straps.

Outside of modest-specific boutiques, most designers will work with you to customize. Ex: If you find a Lazaro with no straps and you want straps, you/your boutique can reach out to them and if you give them enough time (and obviously pay customization fees), they can do it.
