Gowns for All Shapes and Sizes!

Size Inclusive Bridal!

Bridal Sizing is Crazy! Let us Help!

Let’s get right to it! Bridal sizing is tricky and unfortunately for everyone, more often than not a gown will not fit you perfectly when you try it on.  This is true for small brides, tall brides, brides with curves, and brides without. We do our best to be size inclusive so we can help you find the gown of your dreams, but sometimes we can fall a bit short.

At Bitsy, we try to keep a wide range of styles and designers for every bride, but unfortunately we cannot carry every size of each gown in our salon.  We understand the frustration of the gown not zipping, or having to look beyond the numerous clips. Its rough. As a store we are trying our best to accommodate more brides of all sizes. This includes bringing in our new designer Rebecca Schoneveld and her inclusive bridal line!

Rebecca designs all of her gowns with all sizes in mind to ensure everyone looks amazing on their wedding day! All of her gowns are gorgeous in person and have an amazing quality!

Slowly but surely the wedding industry is becoming more inclusive for brides of all shapes and sizes, because everyone deserves to feel beautiful on their special day!  Unfortunately there are still some hurdles to jump through for some brides. Here are a couple tips to make your bridal experience as stress free as possible!


For “Plus Sized” Brides:

Keep in mind that some shops, especially those with a higher price point, might not have your size in stock of a specific gown. At our boutique if a gown catches your eye that too small for you we will do our best to give you an idea of how it will fit on you when it comes in your size. We know its difficult to imagine sometimes, but we will try our best!

Don’t settle! Your dream dress is out there and don’t just settle for a gown you hate simply because the sample fits. You deserve your dream dress just like every other bride!

Understand how designers work. Some designers may have to alter the pattern of the gown to accommodate a larger figure. Sometimes they have to charge extra to do this. This is purely because it takes some time and they want to make sure the proportions are perfect for you so you look your best.


For Tall Brides:

Keep in mind that most wedding gowns are sized on 5′ 8″ models, so if you are that height or taller know that the proportions aren’t quite right in any sample by any designer.

If you want to wear heels, let your stylist know! Sometimes a designer can add a couple complimentary inches to your gown, but other times they might charge for a extra length. We want to help you find the gown of your dreams in you budget and will take the desire for extra length into consideration.


For Petite Brides:

The problems that plague tall brides also plague shorter and smaller brides as well. Again, this is because gowns are sized on 5′ 8″ models it brings problems for those who are significantly shorter than that size.  Hems can get expensive especially if the dress has an intricate pattern or lace.  Designers and seamstresses have a solution though called hollow to hem.

Hollow to hem is much like when you have a picture online and you drag the corner in to shrink it, keeping the proportions; but for a dress! It can be beneficial for both tall and short brides, but much like all problems a bride will face it will cost a bit extra.

Talk to your stylist and let them know if you are planning to wear heels or are concerned about losing patterns in the dress due to hem. They love to help you out and will do their best to show you how amazing you will look!

Modest Gowns

Making it Modest!

Awesome Alterations!

So, you are a bride who needs her gown modest. Everywhere you go you see the same thing over and over, and think to yourself “Why does it all look the same and why can’t being modest look awesome?”

Well, I am here to tell you that we make it awesome with our fabulous alteration team! Let me show you!

This gown is called Idella by our beloved Kelly Faetanini and it is absolutely stunning, but for those who need it modest its not exactly ideal. Our fantastic alteration team did a fabulous job at building up this gown to keep is gorgeous nature with just a bit more coverage.

Who says modesty can’t be dazzling!? We brought the hand beaded detailing up through the back and into the cap sleeve and filled in the more see-though front of the gown. Alisha Hammond did an amazing job at capturing all of the beautiful and seamless detailing we used in her photography!

This is just a one example of the amazing work our alteration team has done for modest brides, and what they can do for you! If you’re loving Kelly Faetanini and her fabulous gowns we have highlighted in our recent blog posts, like the one about wedding colors, then don’t worry about modesty! Kelly has decided to design and create modest tops just for us and our beautiful brides!

Give us a call or schedule an appointment here so we can help you find a gown you absolutely adore! While you’re there, check out our fabulous collection from amazing designers! Don’t forget to check back here for some more tips and tricks to help you on your bridal journey!

See you soon!



Wedding Dress Colors 101

What Colors are There?

What do they look like? And which one is for me?


One of the first things we mention to brides when color is a concern is that we don’t carry white. For clarity’s sake, the white that most people think of is purest of white colors as Bright White. Bright White has a blue undertone, which is what gives it such crispness. It also causes a blue hue in photographs so be aware of that.

Knowing the difference between white, ivory and other gown colors will make your shopping experience easier.  So we’re going to break it down for you!Let’s keep it simple and break it into 4 categories: Ivory Family, Blush Family, Nude Family, Adventurous Colors.

**note: Bright White is not in any of these families, it is a family all its own and we do not carry these gowns at Bitsy Bridal.

Ivory Family

Ivory is a “catch-all” color. Anything that is white or off-white to the naked eye but isn’t actually white.  Most often, ivory will have a warm undertone of yellow or brown which is what makes it so much more appealing than Bright White.

Rachel Lauket
Elyse Alexandria 
Kenzie Victory

Other names that designers will use for their ivory gowns include: natural, off white, soft white, beige. Some designers will have a dress available in ivory and beige – both are versions of ivory just with different undertones or in a darker/lighter shade. These photos feature gowns by Christos and Alyne by Rita Vinieris.

Blush Family

Technically, blush is the lightest of pinks- almost undetectable and very light. But lately blush tends to describe any dress that looks pink. There are a numerous color names for various shades that really just boil down to being called blush.

Stephanie Lorraine
E+E Photography

Many people are afraid that blush doesn’t look “as bridal” as something from the nude or ivory family, but rest assured it photographs beautifully and is a fantastic way to make a statement while still being a bride! Check out our recent post featuring the color blush! In these photos we’re featuring (from the top down) Sareh Nouri, Tara Keely, and Saphia Blue.

Nude Family

Within the nude family we have Mocha, Champagne, Nude, Cashmere, and Cafe. Essentially these all have a brown or tan tone to them. Similar to ivory but much more saturated so there is no way they can be considered “off-white”.

Kristina Curtis
Brooke Bakken
Duke Moose 

Cashmere, Mocha, and Cafe are essentially the same color just different names used by different designers. This color is a bit darker than  Champagne but still holds on to the soft “milky” quality. Nude is the darkest and is meant to look like tanned skin.  We showcased the first photo in a post here, the second gown is one our favorite Tara Keely gowns, and of course Lazaro brings up the rear with his dazzling piece that we took up to Park City.

Adventurous Colors

These are gowns that are anything but ordinary! From black, to lavender, to gold and grey, and the now trendy blue! These colors will really make a bride stand apart from the crowd without looking like she is going to the prom!

My current favorite is our beautiful Star by Kelly Faetenini! Grey and blue are hot colors for bridal right now, so if you’re a bride with a bold side come and try on our Star! The other gowns showcased in this post are also by Kelly Faetenini and Sareh Nouri  who are a part of our exclusive collection.

Hopefully this helped break down the confusing world of bridal fabric colors. Don’t forget to check back with us for more info to help your bridal experience! If you want to make an appointment to try on some gorgeous gowns of all colors call us or make an appointment online!

March: Dress of the Month

Is This Your Dress?

Showcasing a one of a kind gown from Elaya Vaughn!!

Welcome Back Ladies!!

This month we are showcasing a dress that really stands apart from the rest! We say that about every gown, I know, but this one is definitely one of a kind. This beautiful shoot was done by Kristina Curtis. 

This gown has a gorgeous mocha color that makes it stand a part from your standard ivory dress. This gown also reminds me of a Greek Goddess, and this look is elevated by the addition of gold jewelry and headband. It’s exotic nature really separates it from your standard look.

The asymmetrical off the shoulder is so chic and dynamic and adds to the exotic look of the gown.  I really admire the risks that this gown takes and how it pushes boundaries on what is standard for wedding dresses.

White is alright, think pink!

Industrial Elegance

Hello Lovelies!

Time for another styled shoot! This particular shoot was for Utah Bride Blog and featured this lovely gown from Mikaella Bridal.   The addition of a mid-century lounge space, metal accents, and a bright backdrop made the perfect combination for this industrial wedding.

We love Mikaella gowns, and they fit so well for an industrial style wedding! This lovely gem, named Margo, is a crepe dress with an  a-line fit and amazing train. It’s simple elegance really makes this bride shine. Check out some more of our Mikaella gowns if you are drawn to the chic simplicity of this beautiful piece.

We love the simple geometric style this couple used in their wedding! The shapes really bring a modern glam and industrial feel that compliment the gown so beautifully.

Even their cake looks like it is cut from a beautiful slab of marble!  From the lighting to the decor and, more importantly, to the dress, this couple knocked it out of the park as far as the industrial style is concerned!

If you’re loving this look and want to find a gown of your own to compliment this elegant style give us a call or schedule an appointment here and we can discover the gown to elevate your industrial wedding! Special thanks to Jalene Taylor for the amazing photography!

Hope to see you soon darlings!
