Our gorgeous bride Stephanie wore a long sleeve silk crepe, modest wedding dress by our favorite Canadian designer, Mikaella. This high-quality fabric does an amazing job defining curves and makes this incredibly comfortable to wear all day.
Although this gown is typically an open back, Stephanie decided to make it modest wedding dress. This designer is very bride friendly and is able to send gowns already built up and customized. Stephanie ordered the back filled in, so we could get right to work on molding it to her figure.
Here is a peek at how elegant this gown looks in its original form.
In addition to the bateau neckline, this gown features crepe fabric buttons that run the length of the train. These features, along with the jeweled belt and long sleeves, make this gown radiate a timeless and classic look.
This stunning bride from BYUI wore Idella by Kelly Faetanini. Her gown is one modest masterpiece. The delicate lace skirt was left untouched, but the top is a customized work of art.
This gown began as sleeveless with a v-neckline and matching back. The mesh back of the gown is left unlined to give a natural skin look and the intricate beading tapers off just before the straps begin.
Take a look at how this gown started.
Katya lined the entire bodice with matching ivory satin and created a small cap sleeve to create a temple-ready look. She raised the v-neckline and matched the back, but kept the integrity of the original wedding dress design. We added more lace buttons on the back to follow along the raised bodice. We hand-beaded the new additions to the bodice to finish the look.
