Our Bride Carly

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Carly.

This stunning bride looked amazing in her modest Pippa gown. Pippa is part of the Blush by Hayley Paige collection. Hayley Paige is known for her quirky takes on romantic classics, and the Blush line is no different. Pippa originally features a low back with criss-cross details. However, Carly worked with our alterations team to fill in the back to be modest and temple-ready.

She built up the neckline and added a few more appliqués on the sleeves to round out this look. The horsehair trim on the tulle ballgown gives a full and lively look, that paired perfectly for Carly’s bridals.

Here is how this beautiful gown originally begins.

Our Bride Taylor

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Taylor.

Our bride looks radiant in “Winston” by Kenneth WinstonKenneth Winston Couture does a beautiful job with multi-layer detail. The longer you look at this dress, the more detail shines through. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline and a sheer back with exposed boning. The heavy beading slowly tapers out below the waist and gives this gown a look that screams royal. Under the top tulle layer on the ballgown skirt, is a layer strictly of sparkle. This gown glimmers in any light setting! The pattern on the bottom of the skirt helps tie the whole look together and is perfect for a bride who wants a jaw dropping gown.

Taylor paired this gown with a beaded belt and bling hair piece. Winston compliments added sparkle very well, or will be stunning on its own. Take a look at how amazing Taylor and her gown look in her southern wedding.

Our Bride Paola

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Paola.

Our gorgeous bride looked stunning in her Blush by Hayley Paige River gown! Blush by Hayley Paige reflects the whimsical look that we know and love from Hayley Paige, but at a price that your wedding budget will thank you for.

Created with silk dupioni, this fit to flare gown is one of the more classic looks in the Blush collection. Silk Dupioni is a type of heavy silk fabric that gives the gown a structure, similar to taffeta. Following the elongated bodice, the tiered tulle skirt is edged with a horsehair trim and keeps the structured look from top to bottom. Paola decided to wear the detachable beaded bolero on her special day. This crystal accessory gives a pop of sparkle to an otherwise elegantly clean gown.

Take a look at how beautiful Paola and this gown are at the Utah State Capitol.

Our Bride Kaestle

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Kaestle.

This gorgeous bride looked stunning in a Mikaella gown made modest. Mikaella is constantly impressing us with the simple elegance found in every design, but Kaestle enhanced this beauty with a custom build up. Many of our designers can begin the alteration process while the dress is still in production.

Kaestle took this opportunity to fill the back with Mikaella before it arrived. Our very talented in-house alterations team worked with the bride to get a matching lining and to finish making this gown temple-ready.

Originally, this gown features a keyhole back and side inserts. Kaestle opted to fill in the back with the original Guipure lace and used a nude underlay stretch satin lining to give the look more dimension. She kept the Swarovski buttons look and extended them down the entire back which we 10,000% agree with her design choices.

Take a look at the breath-taking detail captured by Duke Moose Photography during her bridals.

Mikaella Duke Moose Mikaella Duke Moose

This gown is stunning in its original state, or built up!

Mikaella gowns are made with high quality fabrics and all made in Canada, and this dress is no exception. The crepe material will flatter your best curves and is comfortable enough for all day wear. Kaestle was able take her gown up to Moraine Lake in Alberta for these photographs and stay comfortable and radiant throughout.

The simplicity of this gown allows it to be flattering in any setting. From a mountain hotel to a backyard wedding! Check out how stunning Kaestle and the gown looks in Canada.

Our Bride Elaine

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Elaine.

Elaine wore a ballgown from Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston. Ella Rosa is the little sister collection to Kenneth Winston. This line has the same design integrity as Kenneth Winston, but is friendlier to your wedding budget. We are proud to be the exclusive retailer for both of these collections in Utah.

The beaded bodice features an illusion back and matching neckline. The scalloped detail along the edges gives the beading a softer look. In addition to the bodice, this ballgown skirt has a delicate lace edging that compliments the simplicity of the tulle material.

This gown originally has a layer of crinoline to give the skirt a fuller look. However, Elaine opted to remove this layer with our in-house seamstress to show a more relaxed look.

Here is the gown originally.

Our Bride Jacey

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Jacey.

This beautiful bride wore a gown by Mikaella that blends classic and edgy. This ballgown skirt is made with an English netting, a softer material than tulle, and a two inch horsehair trim. The handkerchief style gives this gown a lot of movement and enhances the edgy vibes. The bodice is made with Guipure lace, which gives this daring look a romantic feel. The ruched bodice is made from the same skirt material and ties the look together.

When we think of Mikaella, clean and classic tends to come to mind. However, this gown shows how versatile of a collection this designer has.

Our Bride Lexi

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Lexi.

Our brilliant bride Lexi wore Idella by Kelly Faetanini on her special day. Lexi worked with our in-house alterations team to create a flutter sleeve on this typically sleeveless gown. She added extra beading throughout the bodice and sleeves to bring the look together, but left the back low and open. Lexi and our team left the fitted Chantilly lace skirt untouched, which does a fantastic job at tying the romantic look together. This gown is just one example of the amazing sleeve work our alterations team can do.

Lyndsey Kaye Photography did an incredible job at capturing this custom-made gown.

Our Bride Julia

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Julia.

This radiant bride wore Viv, by Nouvelle Amsale. She then customized it with our seamstress to make it modest. The original gown featured a lace appliqué bodice with spaghetti straps.

To make this gown temple ready, Julia changed the neckline from a scoop-neck into a higher v-neck. She also raised the back to follow the front. Julia then extended the lace into a full sleeve, but left this unlined to give dimension to the look.

Our seamstress does a beautiful job at turning any gown into a modest masterpiece. She left the original silk organza skirt untouched, which enhanced the beauty of the altered top.

Our Bride Shelbi

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Shelbi.

Our beautiful bride Shelbi wore Kim by Tara Keely on her special day. Tara Keely is designed by Lazaro, and his attention to detail still shines through in this budget-friendly collection. This gown features an Alencon lace bodice on top of a full organza skirt. The ribbon sash that sits around the natural waist, gives this airy gown a touch of feminine beauty. In addition to the sash, the Venise lace appliqués subtly tie the look together. Kim comes in mocha or ivory, either one of them complimenting a wide range of skin tones. This gown is a perfect combination of comfortable and classic.

Dezember Photography captured the stunning couple at Homestead Resort. This venue is a personal favorite of the staff of Bitsy Bridal! Both our manager and I picked this venue for our weddings.

Our Bride Katina

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Katina.

Our stunning bride Katina wore an equally stunning gown by Nouvelle Amsale. This line is made with the same craftsmanship as the Amsale collection, but will allow you and your wedding budget to say “yes” to that floral arch or dessert bar.

Myka is constructed of a crepe material that creates beautiful and clean lines down the fit to flare skirt. The sheer lace bodice compliments the sweetheart neckline and adds a touch of romance to this timeless gown. Similarly, the matching lace appliqué on the train makes us swoon.  Katina turned this show-stopper into an East Coast dream in her Virginian venue.

Our Bride Stephanie

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Stephanie.

Our gorgeous bride Stephanie wore a long sleeve silk crepe, modest wedding dress by our favorite Canadian designer, Mikaella. This high-quality fabric does an amazing job defining curves and makes this incredibly comfortable to wear all day.

Although this gown is typically an open back, Stephanie decided to make it modest wedding dress. This designer is very bride friendly and is able to send gowns already built up and customized. Stephanie ordered the back filled in, so we could get right to work on molding it to her figure.

Here is a peek at how elegant this gown looks in its original form.

In addition to the bateau neckline, this gown features crepe fabric buttons that run the length of the train. These features, along with the jeweled belt and long sleeves, make this gown radiate a timeless and classic look.

Our Bride Katya

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Katya.

This stunning bride from BYUI wore Idella by Kelly Faetanini. Her gown is one modest masterpiece. The delicate lace skirt was left untouched, but the top is a customized work of art.

This gown began as sleeveless with a v-neckline and matching back. The mesh back of the gown is left unlined to give a natural skin look and the intricate beading tapers off just before the straps begin.

Take a look at how this gown started.

Katya lined the entire bodice with matching ivory satin and created a small cap sleeve to create a temple-ready look. She raised the v-neckline and matched the back, but kept the integrity of the original wedding dress design. We added more lace buttons on the back to follow along the raised bodice. We hand-beaded the new additions to the bodice to finish the look.

Alisha Hammond did an amazing job at capturing all of the beautiful and seamless detailing we used in her photography!
