This magnificent bride wore “Wendy” by Kenneth Winston. This designer does a brilliant job at classic sparkle, and Wendy’s detail is tribute to that. With the help of our alterations team, Jill was able to wear a beautiful beaded modest dress.
This gown began as a sleeveless sheath gown with finger-width straps and a low rounded back. Wendy’s neckline mimics a sweetheart look, but has a mesh detail that gives it more of a v-neckline. This stunning gown is beaded throughout in a diamond pattern and radiates a Gatsby feeling. The entire look is finished off with a small train of the same gorgeous beading.
Take a look at how Wendy began.
Jill worked with our alterations team to turn this beaded beauty into a modest piece of art. Our seamstress needed to do a complete rebuild of the bodice to turn it into a modest wedding gown. When a bride needs a complete rebuild, we start by drawing out a design that works with her vision. Then, we build a rough model of the new bodice, once the bride approves we can begin attaching it to the skirt and adding the necessary embellishments. For Jill this meant creating a scoop back that sat high on the back and a v-neckline. Finally, Jill went with a small cap sleeve to complete this brand new bodice. The new creation was beaded with the same design and detail that the skirt has. With the help of our alterations team, Jill was able to wear a stunning beaded modest dress.

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 wonderful bride wore Beaumont by Wtoo. Wtoo has the same design integrity of Watters, but at a price your budget will thank you for. Tatum took this gown and had it customized to make it modest with our in-house alterations team. This gown began has a strapless beaded beauty, but with the hard work of our seamstress we were able to make Tatum’s vision of long sleeves come to life.
Our seamstress created a custom neckline and sleeves for Tatum to build upon the strapless look. She then filled in the top with lining and appliqués to create a continuous look. She finished by hand beading all of the new work to create a one of a kind modest dress.
This magnificent bride wore “Rowan” by Ella Rosa. Ella Rosa is the little sister of Kenneth Winston, and offers the same couture look at a friendlier price. Rowan captures this designer’s well-known subtle design look perfectly. This gown originally includes an illusion back and beaded straps. However, Jaden worked with our in-house alterations team and made this gown a strapless beauty. She elected to keep the beaded bodice and clear beaded buttons that follow the length of the back, but turned the neckline into a classic sweetheart.
Here is a peek at how the gown originally begins.
The embroidered cotton lace is boho meets classic and is flattering in any setting, and the lace edging around the hem is a romantic dream. This gown is featured in light gold, but has the option for ivory.

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.
