Brides wish to be stylish on their wedding day, but they also have to follow a dress code if they're getting married in a conservative venue. To address the situation, a common option for brides is to wear a more modest gown to the church--this look is usually achieved by wearing a gown overlay.

A gown overlay is a thin, soft, see-through layer of fabric which is sewn over the bodice of a wedding gown. Common fabrics used for gown overlays are lace, tulle, chiffon and organza. A sheer overlay can be adorned with intricate beadwork or elaborate embroidery. Some overlays are detachable, so brides can remove it to reveal a sexier dress for the reception.

Browse through our gallery of wedding gowns with overlay and see how you can channel a look that goes from conservative to daring.
