Meet our real #BitsyBride, Deidre! On her dreamy wedding day at the Tracy Aviary, Deidre wore a horsehair hem champagne wedding dress from our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah. This gown is by the renowned designer, Lazaro, and is a ballgown silhouette.
This gown also has a fully beaded bodice and a sexy low back with crisscross details. Lazaro is famous for the wow factor he adds to his gowns. In this gown, the crystal-beaded bodice is fitted tightly to the waist, and the full ballgown skirt contrasts with the tight bodice to draw attention to the smallest part of the bride’s waist. A ballgown wedding dress is flattering on many body-types for this reason.
The champagne color of this wedding dress is also a universally flattering color. This horsehair hem champagne wedding dress has a deep golden undertone to the lining that ensures the color of the gown and the bride’s skin tone will not be washed out in pictures.
The horsehair hem on the skirt is the approximately three inch long trim at the bottom of each layer of the skirt. This trim is a piece of stiff material that helps the skirt hold its shape. This is especially important on a wedding gown that features a handkerchief hem like this Lazaro wedding dress..
Meet our real #BitsyBride, McKenzie! McKenzie got married at the Bright Building in Provo, Utah and wore the Juno wedding gown by designer Wtoo from our shop, Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City, Utah. Juno is an A-line wedding dress with a floral lace illusion neckline.
Juno’s floral lace illusion neckline is beautiful on many shapes and sizes. The plunging V-shape flatters a small bust, but because of the illusion tulle, a bride with a larger bust will felt supported and held in. The term “illusion neckline” means there is a strong tulle that covers and supports the shape of the neckline. On this wedding gown, the illusion tulle comes up to about the collar bone, but it is barely noticeable.
The illusion tulle and floral lace continues through the tank-straps and onto the back, giving the appearance of a backless wedding gown. The back also features covered buttons over the zipper closure. Juno comes in Latte, which is a cool toned nude, and Ivory. Latte is the color of our shop sample and the preference of the Bitsy Bridal staff because the contrast between the latte lining and ivory lace causes the lace to stand out more than ivory lace on ivory lining.

If you’re from Utah then you are well aware that we’re famous for a high number of brides with short engagement times. Three to four months is a very normal engagement around here which means brides are starting to think about their Holiday Season weddings.
With the holidays come long weekends and semester breaks. For students getting married it means a convenient time to tie the knot without taking time off from school. for large families it means hitting two birds with one stone: family holiday and family wedding.
But, its a double edged sword.
Yes, all of your family is already there and you don’t have to ask people to make a second trip.
You probably will get more attendees since its become a double-affair (maybe this is a con – you tell me, I don’t know your family)
Reception venues are generally cheaper since the holiday season is the wedding off-season.
Decorations are on sale,
You’re wedding is in fact piggy-backed on the holiday and is no longer the main attraction. Which also affects your anniversary.
You won’t get to enjoy the holidays with your family because you will a) be prepping for your wedding or b) be on your honeymoon.
If you have piggy-backed on a major holiday such as Christmas then you only compound the stress and financial strain. Not only are you hosting a wedding but you have to buy presents and hostess gifts for holiday parties.
Making the decision really depends on what is the most important to you. But, my two cents?
Big wedding? Don’t do it!
Intimate wedding? Go for it!
If the event itself is very important to you and you want to spend time with your family doing wedding-related things, then I suggest having it at a dedicated time when it won’t be overshadowed by a holiday. Give your family plenty of notice. If the have to fly in then set the date a reasonable amount of time after the last date they are expected to be in town.
But, if you’re having a smaller wedding and don’t care as much about the dedicated weekend, a holiday wedding could be a great option. That way you’ll only have people there for the actual “I Do’s” but won’t have to do more elaborate wedding weekend.
