Meet our real #BitsyBride, McKenzie! McKenzie got married at the Bright Building in Provo, Utah and wore the Juno wedding gown by designer Wtoo from our shop, Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City, Utah. Juno is an A-line wedding dress with a floral lace illusion neckline.

McKenzie, our real #BitsyBride is holding hands with her new husband and is turned towards him, looking over her shoulder. McKenzie paired and English net veil with her perfect wedding dress from Bitsy Bridal.

Juno’s floral lace illusion neckline is beautiful on many shapes and sizes. The plunging V-shape flatters a small bust, but because of the illusion tulle, a bride with a larger bust will felt supported and held in. The term “illusion neckline” means there is a strong tulle that covers and supports the shape of the neckline. On this wedding gown, the illusion tulle comes up to about the collar bone, but it is barely noticeable.

The illusion tulle and floral lace continues through the tank-straps and onto the back, giving the appearance of a backless wedding gown. The back also features covered buttons over the zipper closure. Juno comes in Latte, which is a cool toned nude, and Ivory. Latte is the color of our shop sample and the preference of the Bitsy Bridal staff because the contrast between the latte lining and ivory lace causes the lace to stand out more than ivory lace on ivory lining.

A sweetheart strapless ballgown is a favorite style of our stylists here at Bitsy Bridal because it is a universally flattering silhouette. The sweetheart neckline accentuates curves and flatters the shoulders. The fitted bodice and fullness of the skirt draw attention to the smallest part of the bride’s waist.

Normally at Bitsy Bridal, we recommend in-house modest alterations to be done by our talented staff, however Lauren already had a seamstress in mind, so she chose to use them. That’s okay with us! We still ordered her new fabric directly from the designer to match her skirt to make sure that her flutter sleeves on her A-line modest wedding dress looked perfect.

Our Bride, Elise.

Meet our real-life #BitsyBride, Elise! Elise chose a modern crepe wedding dress, style 2105, from our ever-chic designer, Mikaella, here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City. In order to fit within LDS temple standards, Elise chose to customize her wedding dress with the designer to make it more modest, and keep it just as beautiful.

How did we make this modern crepe wedding dress modest?

Mikaella‘s style is chic and simple. Their quality is nearly unmatched for the price. Because of this high quality production, our shop trusts the Mikaella design team to do customization for our #BitsyBrides. Our extremely talented and experienced in-house alterations team is skilled at these extensive alterations as well, however sometimes it is best to let the designer do it for us. Sometimes this saves the bride time and money! This was the case for Elise and her modern crepe wedding dress.

Elise said yes to her dress at Bitsy Bridal. Photography by Sarah Meyer.

The original design of 2105 features a wide boat-neck and a plunging V-back. With the help of Mikaella, we seamlessly brought the neckline in on either side, and raised the back. This honored Elise’s religious standards beautifully.

Check out how the dress started:

Here you can see the major change made to the back of Elise’s dress:

Ella Rosa is the little sister of Kenneth Winston. Kenneth Winston offers their main line, Kenneth Winston Couture, and Ella Rosa.

Our Bride Berkeley-Custom Dress Spotlight

Many Utah brides need their perfect dress to be LDS temple modest…

And that’s why so many Utah Brides choose to be a #BitsyBride! Here at Bitsy Bridal, we help those high-fashion brides wear the high-end wedding gown of their dreams. Every bride has dreamed of getting married in a legendary Lazaro wedding dress. 😉 He doesn’t make his wedding dresses modest straight off of production, but fortunately for our #BitsyBride Berkeley, we are able to source fabric directly from him. Every piece of fabric is a perfect match. This way, we made her wedding dress (and the wedding dress of countless other brides) an LDS temple modest Lazaro wedding gown. (Click here to make an appointment to discuss your custom modest needs!)

LDS temple modest customization of Lazaro 3810

Where do we start with custom LDS temple build ups?

Lazaro 3810 is a beautiful “Blush shimmer tulle bridal ball gown, strapless sweetheart neckline, draped bodice with natural waist, box pleated skirt with side pockets, chapel train. Berkeley opted to keep the skirt pleated, raise the neckline to a clean scoop and add a cap sleeve. She also raised the back and removed the draping in the bodice. The result looks like Lazaro himself sewed it, but in reality it was our highly talented team of in-house seamstresses and alterations specialists. Take a look at how Berkeley’s modest Lazaro wedding dress started:

And here is a closer look at the final LDS temple modest Lazaro wedding gown, altered and designed by our talented in-house alterations staff. As you can see, this modest wedding dress ended up being comfortable, fun, and mom approved!

This photo shows the gorgeous train of the dress.

Our beautiful bride, Becca, chose Star by Kelly Faetanini as her wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Click here to make an appointment!) This ivory, low back wedding gown features a beaded bodice, spaghetti straps, a flowy tulle ballgown cut skirt, and a horsehair hem. This gown floats beautifully around our bride because of the many layers of tulle in the ballgown skirt.

This photo shows the beaded, embroidered, V-neck bodice.

Here is a little bit about Kelly Faetanini gowns:

Kelly has a dress for every bride! She has a flowy, low back wedding dress Star. (Star is also available as a blush wedding gown or a blue wedding gown). However she also has a sleek and sexy low back wedding gown like Tamora (another favorite here at Bitsy Bridal). And she has every dress in-between! We love Kelly Faetanini because brides love her!

Here are the alternate colors of the Star gown:

As you can see, Star is beautiful in any of these colors. The beaded, embroidered bodice really compliments the low back and flowy skirt on this gown. Star in Ivory is more traditional and classic. Star in Blush is sweet and romantic, and Star in Blue is moody and modern. Oh and did I mention? IT HAS POCKETS! Make an appointment at Bitsy Bridal and fall in love with the Kelly Faetanini gown of your dreams. ❤
