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.

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.

Blushing Valentines Day Bride

Yona’s rose-blush tone is enough to make a girl swoon.

Hello Gorgeous!

Happy Valentines Day! At a bridal shop VDay means lots of pictures of our brides’ themed nuptials and participating in Valentines style shoots.  One of my all-time favorite shoots took place at Thanksgiving Point and is perfect inspiration for a Valentines Day wedding.  If you are considering getting married on or around
February 14th in the future, these pictures featuring our Kelly Faentanini gown, Yona,  are a great place to start.


I can’t decide if I prefer the up-do or the flowing curls with this gown. They’re both GORGEOUS! Thoughts??

You don’t need over the top decor for a VDay soiree. Flowing linens and flowers in hues of red and pink will do the trick nicely.

The Dress

Kelly Faentanini is an ulta chic designer who has been taking the industry by storm since 2012. She is a Bitsy favorite because she adds amazing modern
twists to the classic feminine silhouettes. Her designs are dreamy and elegant. Yona, with her layers of soft tulle and petal detailing on the waist, is no exception. Kelly Faentanini even has a large collection of pink gowns.  Perfect for a Valentines Day bride.

I love how all of the
elements in this shoot compliment the gown (as it should be! It is YOUR day after all).







The flowers pull outthe deeper hues in the dress. The draping of the tent is a nod to the whimsy of Yona’s tapered ballgown silhouette. Even
the cobblestone throughout the entire venue, with it’s vintage charm, seems to be made specially for this shoot. As I sit
here writing, I keep getting distracted by the photos because they are absolutely perfect.
