Can a Wedding Dress Be Too Sexy?

December 12, 2016

We’ve all heard about Pam Anderson’s white string bikini wedding dresses, and many have seen the lists on The Knot and other top publications. This has left many brides questioning what makes a dress too sexy.

Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin Dress

Your best bet for choosing a wedding dress is to pick something that you feel comfortable in, while still showing your personal style. You want all eyes on you during your wedding day, not blushing and looking away. Wedding dresses come in all styles and shapes, so there’s always going to be the perfect dress, one that is sexy and classy all at the same time. If you’re not confident in your dress, don’t wear it! (Don’t mistake that to mean you shouldn’t wear a dress to your wedding!)

Does Sexy = Revealing?

There’s no such thing as being too sexy on your wedding day, you can however be too revealing. Neck lines lower than the great depression, deep V’s in the back, short skirts, sits that go up to the thigh and see through fabric can all make a wedding dress uncomfortably revealing. The trouble isn’t that the dress is uncomfortable for you, but it may be uncomfortable for your guests.


Dresses like this one are beautiful, but most brides can agree that the neckline was cut too low and is too revealing. The lacey, transparent fabric isn’t helping either!

Here’s the good news: your dress can be sexy without being too revealing! Strapless and sleeveless dresses can be a great way to up the sexy factor while still leaving your guests comfortable. Just make sure the neckline isn’t too low!

You Make the Rules, but Try to Be Considerate

Ultimately, you’re the queen of your wedding day. You make the rules and have the ultimate say,  but a good queen is considerate of her people. So at your wedding take your guests feelings into consideration. Do you really want to make your grandparents or other relatives feel uncomfortable on your special day?

Other Considerations

Certain wedding venues (think churches and other conservative venues) will require certain attire. You may also need to take into consideration, you or your significant other’s family tradition and religious practices.

So, Can a Wedding Dress Be Too Sexy?

Yes it most definitely can! However, there are some great dresses out there that will make you feel sexy while keeping things classy and elegant. Just keep searching until you find the perfect dress – you’ll know it you find it.
