Our Bride, Skylar

Meet Skylar, our real #BitsyBride. Skylar chose a lace fitted wedding dress, Rosalind, from our designer Ella Rosa, a favorite here at Bitsy Bridal. Rosalind is a traditional style wedding dress that features corded Alencon- style lace on tulle over a layer of Chantilly lace. This layering of lace creates a multi-dimensional look on Skylar’s perfect wedding gown. Many brides picture themselves on their wedding day in that traditional sparkly, lacy wedding gown and we are so happy that we achieved that vision for Skylar. Click here so we can do the same for you!

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!)

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!

Our Bride Sheridan

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Sheridan.

This stunning bride wore Style 3662 by Lazaro for her special day. Lazaro is well-known for doing a spectacular job at glamorous and glitzy wedding gowns. This particular gown is no exception! Sheridan worked with our seamstress to create her customized vision by making her Lazaro modest.

Style 3662 began as a sleeveless ballgown. The v-neckline gives a plunging illusion with the sweetheart lining underneath. This beautiful gown has a show stopping low back that tapers off into a V at the top of the waist. This entire gown is made up of signature Lazaro glitter fabric. A thick horse hair trim edges the hem of the gown to give a polished off look. Any bride is sure to feel like a princess in this beautiful fabric and silhouette. Sheridan opted to wear the classic ivory on her big day, but this gown is also available in champagne.

Take a look at how this gown began.

Sheridan worked with our seamstress, which is now our in-house alterations team to create her customized modest vision. First, we began by removing the bodice to create a new pattern that fit the idea of what she wanted. We then created a raised neckline and completely filled in the back. Next, we created long sleeves out of the same glitter fabric, that stopped at the wrist-bone. This was more complimentary to Sheridan’s wedding season. Finally, we hemmed the gown to her height and added bustles.

Take a look at how beautiful Sheridan looks in her photos by Gina Marie Photography.

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.

We have been looking forward to this for weeks, pouring over dress pictures and painstakingly picking the gowns we think you will love the most.

The gowns will be coming in one at a time over the next weeks and months so we are introducing them as they arrive. First on the list is this little number: her name is West.

 

The Skinny:

Silhouette: Fit to Flare

Fabric/Finish: Cashmere lining and Marrakesh beading

Waist: Natural

Neckline: Elongated Sweetheart

Straps: Spaghetti

Back: Low scoop

Shine level:  4/5

Boho level: 3/5

How can you not love this? Seriously.

But for real, if you had an answer for that question, just go away… I’ll wait.

That’s right, it’s AMAZING. Say it with me now…. Marrakesh Beading……. from top to bottom!

With the stellar fit,  low back and the perfect amount of sparkle, I’m not sure how Miss Hayley Paige could have improved upon this design.

West is a phenomenal design. Not just because she is drop-dead gorgeous but because she is such a universal design. She appeals to the “princess” brides who are looking for drama, sparkle, and a little more drama.  She also has such strong bohemian elements with the off white coloring and abstract beading that trendy brides are losing it!  West is perfect because she walks the line between classic and bold.

As for me, my favorite part of the entire gown is the cut. I love the neckline, where it hits the legs to flare out into a perfectly rounded skirt, and most of all I love that back. I am a sucker for a low-back gown. But for real, who isn’t?
