Brin worked with our alterations team to fill in the top to make this gown temple-ready. Our seamstress followed the scalloped pattered to fill in this neckline. Then, we extended the sleeved by a few inches to keep the modest look. Brin opted to keep the crystal buttons that follow the length of her back. She added a wider belt with a few more jewels to bring more sparkle to this look. The completed look made for a stunning modest wedding gown.
This beautiful bride wore “Remington” from Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston. Ella Rosa is the sister brand of Kenneth Winston, and reflects the same design integrity. However, this brand is much more wedding budget friendly.
This gown originally features a beaded and lace bodice with a cap sleeve and sweetheart neckline. The illusion mesh on the back gives an open feeling, while staying covered. The lace bodice scallops along the edges and ends with eyelash lace details. The ballgown skirt is made of tulle and is edged with a delicate lace hem. Altogether, this gown has a fairy-tale feeling to it.
Here is how Remington started.
Nicole worked with our seamstress and our in-house alterations to create a beautiful sleeve. Our seamstress extended the illusion tulle out to Nicole’s wrists and then placed matching lace appliqués throughout the sleeve. Next, the appliqués were beaded to match the bodice and finally, the same eyelash detail was added to the end of the sleeve to finish the look. Nicole’s custom lace sleeves added a sense of elegance to this beautiful gown.
This lovely bride wore “West” from the Blush by Hayley Paige Collection. This show-stopping gown features Blush by Hayley Paige’s unique Marrakesh beading throughout the entire silhouette. This mermaid cut features a sweetheart neckline and low rounded back.
First, this is how West began.
Katherine worked with our in-house alterations team to create the details on her gown and make this a unique piece of work. She opted to keep the same structure that West originally starts with. However, our seamstress removed the original spaghetti strap and added a tulle off the shoulder wrap to give this gown a special touch. This gently covered Katherine’s arms and scooped across the top of her back, giving her a soft and delicate look. Katherine purchased an overskirt out of town and wanted to incorporate this into her wedding day look. Our seamstress added hooks to the waist of the gown, so the skirt could easily be added or removed as needed.
This radiant bride wore Lainee by Christos. This collection is an extension of Amsale and has the same breathtaking designs that capture the simple elegance look of Amsale.
Lainee began as a delicate, silk chiffon gown with a plunging neckline and matching back. The neckline and back are covered with corded lace, which extends down to a lace flutter sleeve. Lainee has the option to tie a silk chiffon ribbon around the waist.
Here is the original gown.
The structure of this gown already has a conservative feel, but Olivia worked with our seamstress and our in-house alterations to make this gown temple-ready. We started by filling in the back and part of the neckline to allow garments to stay hidden. Then, we extended the beautifully delicate sleeves to make them a bit longer. Finally, we added a touch of lace around the waist to finish the look. Olivia opted to tie her ribbon around the back rather than the front like the model.
This incredible bride looked stunning in her modest build up version of Halo from the Blush by Hayley Paige collection. Hayley Paige is known for her edgy and whimsical designs, and Halo is no exception.

Kate is an excellent example of how well Lazaro does a glitter gown! Morgan added a modest flutter sleeve, which gives this gown a custom spin.
This gown first began as a strapless beauty that features a gorgeous sweetheart neckline and low back. The beaded floral and chevron design shimmers and dazzles in the light. This sheath gown hugs all the right curves and shows off a bride’s beautiful shape, then delicately hangs off the thigh. This fabric and design is complimented by a sweep train. Kate includes an optional tulle overskirt that gives this look a longer train and more volume.
Take a look at the original gown.
Here is a peek at how Kate looks with the overskirt included.
Our seamstress worked with Morgan during our in-house alterations to create her modest vision. First, she built up the top with a v-back and high neckline using the same shimmering fabric. During build up alterations, we carefully construct new bodices and necklines to ensure every bride is seeing their idea come to life. Finally, this classic look was complimented with a whimsical modest flutter sleeve. We used the same fabric that edges the bottom of the dress to create a beautiful and cohesive look.
Shameless Photography did an incredible job at capturing the beauty of this bride and her gown in her outdoor garden-type venue.

However, Shanelle worked with our in-house alterations team to build this top up into a fantastic modest wedding dress. Below are pictures of how this gown started.
Shanelle decided to keep the v-neckline, but raised it to a modest level. She then extended the cap sleeve into a full-length sleeve. This full Marrakesh beaded sleeve is perfect for any season, and amplified the beauty of this gown. Shanelle finished off her modest alterations with filling in the majority of the keyhole back. She opted to leave a small opening, just between the shoulders. Our seamstress added a beautiful touch to this opening by following the look of the neckline and detailing the edges. Shanelle topped off her look by pairing her gown with Hayley Paige’s matching veil.
