Our Bride Lauren

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Lauren.

This gorgeous bride wore “Elsa” by Lazaro. Lazaro does an incredible job with heavy beading and glitter fabrics. Elsa embodies this work perfectly. Lauren worked with our in-house alterations to create her very own modest Lazaro gown.

Elsa begins as a sleeveless ballgown in a stunning checkered net glitter fabric. The sculpted v-neckline and natural waistline together create a delicate bodice. This compliments the low scoop back very well. Finally, the spaghetti straps are detailed with crystal embellishments This look is finished off with a chapel length train.

Take a look at how Elsa began.

Creating a modest Lazaro

Lauren was wowed by the sparkle of this dress and knew it would fit perfectly into her princess vision. She began working with our in-house alterations team to make sure this gown would be temple ready. Firstly, our seamstress began by removing the bodice and recreating a brand new look. This included changing the neckline into a higher v-neck and completely filling in the back. Then, we added long sleeves to the bodice, which came to a point just below the wrist bone. Both the neckline and the sleeves were finished off with a pearl trimming. Lauren added a cummerbund in the same fabric to extenuate the smallest part of her waist. Finally, the entire look was tied together with crystal buttons that followed the length of her gown.

Lauren accessorized with a sparkle necklace and earrings. She decided to amp up her fairy-tale look by adding sparkle shoes and a matching tiara. Finally, she added a customized cathedral veil made out of the same fabric as her gown. Lauren truly looked like a princess come to life during her wedding day.

Our Bride Jill

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Jill.

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.

Our Bride Savannah

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Savannah.

Our gorgeous bride wore Juno from Wtoo by Watters. Watters and Wtoo’s styles range from clean and sleek to edgy and unique. Here at Bitsy Bridal, we carry both of these beautiful collections and have a variety of gowns to fit any bride’s budget or style. Savannah transformed this romantic gown into a stunning masterpiece featuring a modest lace bodice.

Juno began as a sleeveless gown with a plunging v-neckline. This illusion bodice is covered in floral lace appliqués that create an open back visual. Juno’s A-line skirt is multiple layers of English Netting. This material gives a soft and breathable look to this romantic gown. This gown is available in traditional ivory or latte. However, the latte color is one-of-a-kind and will stand out in nearly any venue. Juno also has the option of functional buttons to close the gown, or a zipper with decor buttons. If you like the sweetheart look, check out the modest version.

Take a look at Juno’s original form.

Savannah worked with our in-house alterations team to create her modest lace build up. We began by lining the entire bodice in latte fabric and then filling it in with floral lace appliqués. Because of this, we were able to create an entirely new scoop neckline. Finally, our seamstress created a cap sleeve. This gave the gown a chic look and made it temple ready. With the help of our seamstress, Savannah was able to create a personalized look for her special day.

Our Bride Allie

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Allie.

This beautiful bride wore Juno by Wtoo on her special day. Watters designs the Wtoo collection and features the same incredible quality, at a budget friendly price-point. Allie worked with our seamstress to create her modest version of this stunning gown with fairy sleeves.

Juno originally begins as a sleeveless A-line gown with illusion tulle on the bodice. The illusion tulle creates an open back effect that gives Juno an airy feeling, while still being covered. The lace on the bodice is concentrated around the bust and waist, and then trickles up the straps and down the back. The deep plunging v-neckline is a beautiful focal point of the bodice. The English Netting on the skirt allows for a lot of movement and contributes to the airiness. Finally, a small satin ribbon sits at the waist and ties the look together. Juno comes in traditional ivory or latte.

Here is a look at how Juno began.

Creating a modest gown.

Allie worked with our in-house alterations team to build Juno up and make it temple ready. First, our seamstress recreated the bodice to cover garments. We began by filling in the plunging V and creating a higher v-neckline. Next, we lined the illusion tulle back with latte lining. This closed up the back for modesty, but was still cohesive in the overall redesign. Finally, we created custom fairy sleeves to add. The fairy sleeves were covered with matching lace appliqués that began at the shoulder and trickled down the arm. Allie opted to add a little extra flair and had a custom slit added to the skirt of her gown.

Our Bride Pip

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Pip.

This beauty wore “Delta” from Blush by Hayley Paige. The Blush collection features the whimsical and edgy vibe that we love from Hayley, but at a budget friendly price point. Delta is an excellent example of Hayley Paige’s artistry. This gown is amazing in its original form, or with a customized keyhole back and straps.

Delta begins as a stunning A-line gown in complete Marrakesh Beading fabric. The gown features a deep, scalloped v-neckline with a small mesh insert for coverage. To complement this neckline, the spaghetti straps come to a T in the back. Finally, the back is finished off with a Marrakesh beaded butterfly at the clasps. This art-deco inspired gown has the color option of cashmere, or traditional ivory.

Take a look at how Delta began.

Pip worked with our in-house alterations team to customize the top and bring her unique design to life. Firstly, we began by raising the neckline to about mid-bust to provide more coverage. However, this new neckline still features the beautiful scalloped edging. Next, our team created a thicker strap. Like the neckline, the straps have been edged. This scalloped edge continues across the straps and down the back. Finally, we created a brand new keyhole back for Pip. This design flowed better with the new construction and highlights Pip’s stunning features. This new back ended just above the waist and featured a small clasp in-between the shoulders to close. Pip opted to keep the beautiful A-line skirt intact.

Abby Dell Photography did a stunning job at capturing this one-of-a-kind gown. Take a look at how radiant she looks!

Our Bride Brin

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Brin.

This gorgeous bride wore Mikaella for her special day. This Toronto-based designer does classic elegance with attention to beautiful detail. Brin worked with our alterations team to turn this gown into a timeless modest wedding gown.

First, this A-line gown features a full organza skirt and lace bodice with a sweetheart neckline and see-through back. The cap sleeves and neckline were finished with a light scalloped edge. A small beaded belt completed this soft look.

Take a look at how this gown began.

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.

Our Bride Nicole

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Nicole.

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.

Our Bride Katherine

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Katherine.

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.

Our Bride Morgan

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Morgan.

This stunning bride wore “Kate” by Tara Keely. Lazaro designs the Tara Keely collection, and his attention to detail continues to shine through in these gowns. 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.

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.
