Andrea’s perfect custom wedding dress features a handkerchief hem and a long sleeved lace bodice. The handkerchief hem is part of the original design of the dress, but our talented Bitsy Bridal alterations team created the bodice from scratch. (Click here for a blog post all about alterations!) Creating a custom bodice is a hefty task, but our team of talented seamstresses specialize in pattern-making, which is crucial to getting the perfect fit in your custom wedding gown.
First, in a custom alterations appointment, our talented seamstress will ask you what you want to change. Then, the seamstress will sketch her vision of what you explain to her. After you agree that she has captured your vision perfectly, then she will begin work on your gown. You will have at least three alterations appointments to make sure that your custom lace bodice ballgown, for example, is perfect.
Meet our real #BitsyBride, Melissa. Melissa found her perfect wedding dress at our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She wore a lacey beaded wedding dress on her dreamy wedding day. Melissa looked and felt her best on her wedding day because of her beautiful wedding gown.
This lacey beaded wedding dress is from the designer Kelly Faetanini, which is based in New York city. Kelly Faetanini is known for her beautiful, unique designs and sleek silhouettes. As a result, brides often choose her styles to wear on their wedding days.
This wedding gown is a fit and flare cut. As a result, this wedding gown is fitted through the bodice and hips. Then, the gown flares out into a long train. The lace and lining are also stretchy so this is a comfortable wedding gown.
Abby’s perfect wedding gown has an A-line shape, and means that the bodice is fitted and the skirt flows out at the waist. Tulle is a great textile to use for an A-line wedding dress because it holds its shape without being too puffy, closer to a ballgown. However, it offers a similar level of flattery as a ballgown because it draws attention to the bride’s waist. Abby’s lace tulle wedding dress did that while exemplifying elegance.
Abby’s lace tulle wedding dress is fanciful and graceful, but it is whimsical and fairytale like. It is her perfect wedding dress, and the perfect wedding dress for her woodsy outdoor wedding ceremony and her woodsy outdoor bridal pictures.
Charlotte custom ordered her lace crepe gown from Mikaella. Her custom order included the fully lace back and cap sleeves to keep the gown modest. Mikaella is a wonderful designer to make custom changes. Their customizations are reasonably priced and impeccably done. Our in-house alterations are another option for brides, but because she lives in California, it was easier for Charlotte to do the customization with Mikaella.
The skirt of Charlotte’s wedding dress is made of crepe. Mikaella’s crepe is lightweight and molds to the body beautifully. Then the skirt is fit and flare shaped. This further highlight’s the bride’s figure. The gown is very flattering because of this lace and crepe combination.

Meet our real #BitsyBride, Nikki! Nikki found her perfect wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City. (Click here to make an appointment! ❤) She chose an A-line, tulle skirt wedding gown to wear on her wedding day in the beautiful mountains. Her wedding gown is by designer Tara Keely, which is a line designed by Lazaro, but at a more budget conscious price-point. Tara Keely is a great option for brides who are looking for a glamourous wedding dress, but want to keep the price a little more comfortable!
An A-line shaped wedding gown is a very flattering cut on every bride. A-line wedding dresses are comfortable because they are not tight through the hips and legs like a fit and flare wedding dress. They also draw attention to the waist of the bride, which is her smallest part of her body. Lazaro made this wedding gown for his Tara Keely line very airy and flowy in the skirt using tulle. A tulle skirt wedding gown is very light weight, adding to the comfort of the A-line shape.
The bodice of Nikki’s dress is made from a beautiful lace that is perfect for her outdoor wedding. The lace is an abstract floral which looks lovely with the mountains and trees in the backdrop of her ceremony.
