Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Sample Sizes in store – Bridal Size 14 to Bridal Size 18

(Street Dress Size 12 to 16)

In measurements – Bust 39-44 , Waist 32-36, Hips 42-47

Price Range – $2200 – $2900

Designers – Vera Wang, Madi Lane, Justin Alexander, Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston

Our plus size collection only ranges from Bridal Size 14 to Bridal Size 18 for in-store try ons. We apologize for not having size 20 and above ahead of time. We can order up until Bridal Size 28. We just don’t have size 20 and above in store to try on. They are all hand-selected by our owner/manager Pam. How this work is that Pam would go to market and watch the plus size models or try on dresses and she will only bring back the gowns that’s flattering on her body.

Funny story: Check out this photo. Pam was trying on this gown couple of years ago because the plus size model is not at the New York Bridal Market yet. When she came out of dressing room, buyers from bridal boutiques all across the country were snapping photos because plus size models in New York are rare and hard to come by. She was so uncomfortable and thus the face. She was only trying it on to bring back to Bitsy Bridal. Pam loves behind the scenes more. She can cross out modeling on the list of careers she can fall back on.. ha ha..

They told her to SMILE! 😀

We will be posting and updating here all the plus gowns we have in store and their designer price ranges. As the plus size bride herself, Pam feels that transparency and the fit is the first priority here.

Thank you so much for keeping us in business.

Best Bridal Shop in SLC Award

You guys! We won in June 2020 and I was busy having babies in 2020 and then again in 2022 that I forgot to blog it. Today I am looking through my web page for my website guys and then… I was like.. how come I never blog it?

So we got an email in April/May 2020 that we were nominated. It was in the smack dab in the middle of pandemic. I didn’t think too far since my first baby is due in June 2020. So I was like “Grool”…

And then we got an email again that people voted for us and that we won. Gosh… I was super excited. Our little business suffered in the middle of pandemic just like any others’. In that same year, we had a customer using multiple accounts and asking her friends/clients/family and fiance` to write multiple one-star reviews for us. So our average rating plummeted from 4.8. (We are still suffering as of today.) Luckily, our revenues didn’t hurt once we are out of shutdowns. Our brides are able to look past that this is just simply wanting to take down a freaking business. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?

We didn’t pay for this award. Heck we didn’t even spend $200 to nominate ourselves like how “Best of State” nominations requires. I am just so glad that there is the selection committee who understands why and gives us a chance to be the best version of ourselves in the heart of SLC.

In my humble opinion, I don’t think we need to be “best in SLC”… We simply just want to be “the best” for brides who book appointments to try on dresses with us and then “the bestest” for the Bitsy Brides who purchased. We just want to make sure we are available and resourceful for them until their big day.

Check us out: https://www.bestofslc.com/business-awards/2020-winners/ . Also other two nominees are super chill and super cool too.

XO,

Pam

Evie Young Designer Debut & Madi Lane Trunkshow

Here’s the pretty little PSA for the event:

About: Guess what? Madi Lane has a little sister. She’s called Evie Young. They both are designed by Liz Young in Gold Coast Australia.

We picked up the line back in February 2020 before the whole covid thing happens via private showing from the designer. We are so grateful because both Chicago Bridal Market in March and New York Bridal Fashion Week were canceled and the new line business was halted.

We were supposed to do a big giant debut with fashion show and everything at our shop during the 2020 summer but looking like crowds are a bad idea right now…. 😀

So why not call in the gowns and do a little roll out. We truly are very excited about this designer. As you know, Madi Lane’s quality and designs are impeccable. So it’s only fitting to bring in her little sister who is a boho babe at heart.

All the Evie and Madi new gowns are arriving in August 2020 for 2021 brides but we couldn’t wait. We wanna show them to 2020 brides to do a little promotion since we get to reopen the shop on May 1st.

What: Evie Young Designer Debut & Madi Lane Fall 2020 Trunkshow

When & Where: May 14th – May 25th at Bitsy Bridal (by Appointment only – covid sanitization guidelines apply.)

Ship Dates: Normal Ship dates are at 16-20 weeks but we have rush options (additional cost) and designer in-stock inventory. Select dresses can arrive as fast as June 22, 2020 so that we can still host our 2020 brides.

Price Range: $1899 – $2499 on both lines

Promotions: 15% off all ML and EY gowns + $100 Accessory and Veil Credit during first visit with purchase (Normally we only do 10% off for the trunk show but why not have a little bit more fun this time with the new designer debut)

Modest and Temple Ready options: We order the fabric straight from the designer to make the dress modest with our in-house alterations and custom design team. Please check our previous brides on our blog and our website for our team’s talent and inspo. Our modest build up works start at $500, not including the gown and fabric.

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 Hannah

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Hannah.

This beautiful bride wore “Gigi” from Enchanting by Mon Cheri. This collection has a variety of styles that are able to meet the needs of brides from classic to boho, in a great price point. Gigi is a beautiful example of a style with a little bit more edge. This beautiful nude bohemian wedding gown is perfect for an outdoor location.

Gigi looks stunning as a fit to flare gown that features a plunging v-neckline. The halter-like straps allows for some bust support and coverage. The straps button in the back and transform into a gorgeous keyhole back. Gigi’s bodice is kept unlined for those brides who are looking to show more skin. If you are not one of those brides, this can be fixed within alterations for those who want more modesty. The focal point of this gown is the floral appliqués and 3D flowers. This beautiful detail is concentrated around the bodice, and then trickles down the skirt. Finally, Gigi ends with a sweep train, perfect for an outdoor venue.

Here is how Gigi begins.

Photo by Mon Cheri.

Hannah opted to keep the majority of Gigi the same as the original during alterations. However, she did work with our in-house alterations team to add a few personalized details. She decided to close the neckline up a little bit to give more support and coverage. Then, our seamstress did a few adjustments to have this gown fit Hannah perfectly. Visit our alterations page for more!

Take a look at how amazing Hannah looks during her Moab wedding in these photos captured by Angela Hays Photography.

Our Bride Courtney

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Courtney.

This radiant bride wore Amanda by Nouvelle Amsale. This collection stems from the well-known Amsale brand, but sits at a lower and more budget friendly price point. Both Nouvelle Amsale and the Amsale name are well known for their simple wedding gown designs. They do an incredible job at capturing timeless and classic beauty within their gown. Amanda is a beautiful example of this clean and simple look.

Amanda is stunning as a sheath gown that features a deep v-neckline and floral lace sleeves. The crepe fabric elevates the cleanliness and simplicity of this gown. The princess seams sewn into this fabric and the plunging v-neckline allows a bride to show off her best curves. The hand appliquéd floral cap sleeves are a breathtaking addition and add a bit of personality to this gown. The lace clasps together at the base of the neck, and creates a brilliant keyhole back.

Courtney opted to keep this gown nearly to its original form. However, she did work with our in-house alterations team to create her perfect fit. She simply needed a few nips and tucks, as well as a hem. Although Courtney only used our services for simple alterations, we can transform wedding gowns into customized pieces of art. To talk to any of our stylists about our services and alteration options, please contact us.

Courtney decided to pair her gown with a simple one-layer veil to complete this classic style. However, Amanda can be easily glammed up with statement jewelry, or a long veil.

Take a look at this gorgeous bride in a few of her wedding photos by Jacque Lynn Photography.

Our Bride Maiya

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Maiya.

This beautiful bride wore “Pepper” from Blush by Hayley Paige. Blush expresses the same designs that Hayley Paige is known for, but at a more cost effective price point. Pepper fits the mold of being edgy, but with classic bridal vibes.

Pepper features a bodice made from Hayley Paige’s gorgeous Marrakesh beading fabric. The sweetheart neckline and low back have a scalloped detail that gives a feminine look. The straps are a delicate spaghetti strap that run into the low V-shaped back. The ivory Marrakesh beading stops at the natural waist and then is followed by a full tulle skirt. This tulle is cut into cascading layers and edged with horsehair trim.

Maiya decided to keep Pepper in its original form. However, the sample gown she purchased was several sizes too big for her. She worked with our in-house alterations team to resize this gown and have it fit her perfectly. During this process, we needed to take in the bodice by several inches. This task required our seamstress to bring it in and rematch the beading patterns. This gave the gown a finished look, and masked the fact that this gown was once too large. Once the bodice fit her correctly, we were able to focus on hemming the gown to her height. Maiya opted to not add anymore details to her gown.

Maiya had multiple photographers capture her beautiful gown, including Shaylei Halling Photography during her Arches shoot and Madison Rogers Photography during her Oregon shoot. Take a look at how incredible both of these locations are and how stunning Maiya looks.

Our Bride Maci

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Maci.

This beautiful bride wore Calais by Aire Barcelona. Aire Barcelona is a designer who does an excellent job at taking classic details and adding a Spanish flair to it. Calais showcases this attention to detail in a wonderful way. The illusion back on this gown is a show-stopping addition to this dress.

Calais features a large illusion back that is the focal point of this gown. Lace appliqués were placed over the illusion tulle, which gives a tattoo-like effect. This illusion back ends just above the hips and mimics a large open-back feel. The sweetheart neckline sits atop an illusion tulle, therefore, it gives the opportunity for appliqué placement across the chest and up the shoulders. Calais’ lace bodice stops about mid hip, and then trickles into subtle lace placement. The flared skirt of Calais is made out of a tulle material to give movement to Calais. The buttons down the back give a beautiful finishing touch.

Maci opted to keep this stunning gown in its original form. She only needed a few minor touch-ups to make this gown fit her like a glove. However, our in-house alterations team can modify any gown to turn it in to your dream wedding dress. Whether that be a simple nip and tuck or a full modest build up.

Take a look at how amazing Maci looks in her gown during her bridals with the salt flats as background, done by Emli 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.

Kendra Bird Photography captured Lauren and this stunning modest Lazaro at the Salt Lake Temple and The Grand America Hotel downtown.

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.

Tamara Jennings Photography did an amazing job at capturing Jill in her custom gown during her bridals.

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.

Mikki Platt Photography did a fantastic job at capturing this beautiful bride and her modest lace gown. Take a look at some of her photos.
