Religious doctrines impose brides follow- Mormon Wedding Dresses
To choose your bridal outfit doesn’t have any strict imposed rules. But when it comes about the religious ceremony there are a few things that must guide a bride. Plus it is about one’s respect towards its values, towards its religious dogmas. Not even a priest will allow the bride to enter in the church if the look is not an adequate one for this place. But it is more about the fact that brides follows there instinct in this way and being raised in such limits they just stay in line with their decision, without passing the border of shrill, indecent view.
If we consider for a bride having a strapless corset enough decent Mormon wedding dresses totally exclude these. They have even stricter rules in this way, more like unwritten cod about this. The difference between modern view and Mormon wedding dresses is one as the most important, around which everything is related: having as much as possible covered body parts:
- Mormon wedding dresses can’t be about strapless corset, not even with simple straps. The obligatory fact is for the dress to have covered neckline plus arms and shoulders. As a consequence they have sleeves, with possibility to be short or long at your wish.
- Mormon wedding dresses can’t be short as length. Under no circumstances a bride can wear a tea length or short skirt of the dress. The obligatory request is to cover the legs and be long.
- At the neckline part Mormon wedding dresses can’t be about a too deep cut. Again we speak about the necessary request to cover as much as possible so excluded from the scheme are halter style, backless dresses, v shape, even sweetheart neckline or the off the shoulders style. What will remain is boat neckline, square or round, high neck.
- At the skirt part Mormon wedding dresses follow the same decent way but more than this not to be too tight on the body; it is considered that in this way the bride accentuates its shapes, so it is a sin. A straight line or larger is the best choice. Consequently, no mermaid cut of the dress.
- As design of the dress Mormons don’t have such strict rules again. It is accepted to be in no matter what style as long as it keeps the wedding dress as cut with the references mentioned above, with no decoupages.
What for us may be a too strange cod of rules for others it is a normality; what we see as obsolete and with too many no ways they take it as single options. But in fact the only thing changed is the lack of accent on femininity, on the sensual parts of a woman.
