If the Wedding Gown (1) is Modest, (2) Allows the audience to focus on the Wedding Program, sit in reverence and contemplate on Believers' wedding being a shadow of the marriage between Christ & Church and (3) Brings glory to God, then why not?

God Bless!

Not trying to be disrespectful here, but modesty means something different in different places.

Some may think showing the stomach while wearing a saree is immodest, some may think that showing the shoulders while wearing a gown is immodest.

Use common sense.

i agree with what varghese said, let me add a little. here God knows our motive, a good dress is always welcomed. but it should not be something to show our pride or luxury or to compete with worldly marriages. also we should avoid something which exposes body or body shape in such a way to lead others to lust/sin).A spl dress for marriage is good and fair, provided if it is not an hinderence to testimony of believers in the society. i believe 'simplicity' is what we should follow than, luxury. may God give us discernment.

I wore a gown on my wedding which was very modest..1 reason i wore gown is because i got it stitched cheaper than a wedding saree (in bombay)2nd reason..I'm not comfortable in saree coz i not used to wearing a all my focus will be on maintaining the saree & not the ceremony & finally 3rd reason, to me saree looks a lil sexier than a gown.My gown covered my whole body tiop to bottom whereas a saree wouldn't as posted by llcj..But it actually depends on individuals interest & comfort & most importantly modesty

Dear Sisters,
Whether Gown, or Saree or some other dress as far as it is appropriate to the Spiritual Sanctity of the occassion is ok.
One disturbing thing i have found in many places especially in Kerala is that, immediately after the marriage ceremony, Bride will disappear for a change of dress. usually it takes 30 to 60 minutes. They say gone for 'manthra kodi' change. ALL the invitees will have to waith impatient. This manthrakodi also will be modest, but is it needed? I understand Manthrakodi is a Hindu practise = A saree with a crore 'manthras' done on it.

whether it is saree or gown,those who wants to expose know how to do that by manipulation. Ratherthan the spiritual atmosphere in a wedding, more sginificance is given to the vedeo viewing. Even our evangelists,the forebearers of the scriptures are ready to conduct the marriage without uttering a word.
