From a religious standpoint, should a Bride try to look sexy on her wedding day?

October 2nd, 2010

I watch bridal shows sometimes, and many women, when choosing their wedding dress, look for sexy dresses that show off their cleavage/waist/hips whatever. (they actually tell the people at the dress store they want to look sexy…)

Do you think it is appropriate for a Bride to dress like a sexy vamp on her wedding day?

(dressing sexy for her wedding night is an entirely different subject, lol)

    I think a bride should look pure. That’s what the White dress is all about. And the veil. Purity.

    Modesty is key, and that is actually dictated by some religions.

    It’s her wedding, not the bible’s.

    I think and believe it is the brides day and if the dress she chooses makes her feel like a million bucks, great, God Bless her. From a Christian stand point we generally only do this once and I can assure you i have enough sin in my life I have no business judging someone else.

    Interesting question. I suppose it might be one way for her to show the other guys what they are missing now that she is getting married. Most brides want to look beautiful on their wedding day but sexy and beautiful are two different things. Personally, I think dressing sexy for your wedding is in poor taste.

    “that show off their cleavage/waist/hips” – of course according to Islam, all that is wrong. Modesty should attained on all times. And yes, as you said though it’s an entirely different subject, there’s nothing wrong in being sexy in front of your husband. In fact, it’s encouraged.

    Use the “sexy” stuff for the honey moon!

    In my religion: modest and simple. That doesn’t mean the dress can’t be beautiful and she won’t be a princess on her wedding 😉

    No, Dressing like a harlot is never acceptable in the eyes of our holy God . Your cleavage is to be seen by only your husband and only in your bedroom. Women who dress like hookers and call themselves Christians are a disgrace to Jesus .. the Bible says this…Proverbs 11:22 As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. Dress modestly and let only your beloved see your loveliness.

    Depends on the religion. Now if like me you follow the Norse Gods then most certainly yes! I’m fairly sure that Firgga and Freyja would wholeheartedly approve.

    Should a rich groom show his cash at the reception?

    perhaps what they *mean* is that they want to look beautiful, but for some reason they do not distinguish between “sexy” and “beautiful”.

    a woman who looks beautiful will generally be sexy in doing so.

    but its possible to look beautiful without looking excessively sexual.

    I think on one hand its semantics, on another its using the wrong terms.

    theres nothing wrong with wanting to look sexy per se

    but its possible to look sexy and beautiful without looking slutty.

    maybe the question, is why is the culture and style developed to be such that wanting to look beautiful and all that, is so difficult to distinguish from overly sexual and exibitionistic?

    Ill try to make this short and sweet “being pure is sexy”!!! So if you white dress symbolizes purity then yes u are a very sexy bride… lol

    I’ve got no problem with it, but I don’t see why you would.

    You’ve got him in the bag, woman!

    No, I do not. A wedding day is a religious celebration. It should be about uniting two people with Jesus Christ. Modesty isn’t just appropriate, it’s an obligation.
    Instead of the bride thinking “I want everyone to be looking at ME, she should think, I want everyone to worship God today…”

    The wedding night is for the sexiness.
