Meet our real #BitsyBride, Melissa. Melissa found her perfect wedding dress at our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She wore a lacey beaded wedding dress on her dreamy wedding day. Melissa looked and felt her best on her wedding day because of her beautiful wedding gown.
This lacey beaded wedding dress is from the designer Kelly Faetanini, which is based in New York city. Kelly Faetanini is known for her beautiful, unique designs and sleek silhouettes. As a result, brides often choose her styles to wear on their wedding days.
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.
Abby’s perfect wedding gown has an A-line shape, and means that the bodice is fitted and the skirt flows out at the waist. Tulle is a great textile to use for an A-line wedding dress because it holds its shape without being too puffy, closer to a ballgown. However, it offers a similar level of flattery as a ballgown because it draws attention to the bride’s waist. Abby’s lace tulle wedding dress did that while exemplifying elegance.
Abby’s lace tulle wedding dress is fanciful and graceful, but it is whimsical and fairytale like. It is her perfect wedding dress, and the perfect wedding dress for her woodsy outdoor wedding ceremony and her woodsy outdoor bridal pictures.
The Dakota gown that Chelsea chose started with a mostly illusion tulle keyhole back. This makes the gown look more backless, and still offers the support of a keyhole back wedding dress. Chelsea opted to have our custom in-house alterations experts fill the illusion tulle. We used the same Hayley Paige beading as the rest of the bodice. This accentuates the keyhole back as a stylistic feature of the wedding gown.
Our seamstresses specialize in making ever alteration flow into the wedding gown’s original design. This keeps the wedding dress from looking patched with alterations. This process is also applied to our LDS modest temple build-ups. We never want anyone to be able to tell that something has been changed on your gown. 😉
This beaded backless wedding dress with a custom keyhole back is a beautiful example of what our alterations team is capable of. For more information on our talented seamstresses, click here! And to have us find you the prefect wedding dress, click here!
Meet our real #BitsyBride, Nikki! Nikki found her perfect wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City. (Click here to make an appointment! ❤) She chose an A-line, tulle skirt wedding gown to wear on her wedding day in the beautiful mountains. Her wedding gown is by designer Tara Keely, which is a line designed by Lazaro, but at a more budget conscious price-point. Tara Keely is a great option for brides who are looking for a glamourous wedding dress, but want to keep the price a little more comfortable!
An A-line shaped wedding gown is a very flattering cut on every bride. A-line wedding dresses are comfortable because they are not tight through the hips and legs like a fit and flare wedding dress. They also draw attention to the waist of the bride, which is her smallest part of her body. Lazaro made this wedding gown for his Tara Keely line very airy and flowy in the skirt using tulle. A tulle skirt wedding gown is very light weight, adding to the comfort of the A-line shape.
The bodice of Nikki’s dress is made from a beautiful lace that is perfect for her outdoor wedding. The lace is an abstract floral which looks lovely with the mountains and trees in the backdrop of her ceremony.
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.
A sweetheart strapless ballgown is a favorite style of our stylists here at Bitsy Bridal because it is a universally flattering silhouette. The sweetheart neckline accentuates curves and flatters the shoulders. The fitted bodice and fullness of the skirt draw attention to the smallest part of the bride’s waist.
A sweetheart strapless ballgown is a very classic fairy tale wedding gown. This shape is timeless and won’t have you looking back at your wedding pictures the way you look at your mom’s dress from the 80s. 🤣 If you picture yourself looking like a princess on your wedding day, we highly recommend trying at least one ball gown wedding dress on to see if that is the look you are going for. Many designers choose to create these beautiful ball gown wedding dresses because they are flattering on all shapes. Our shop has a many ballgown wedding dresses to choose from. Click here to make an appointment! See you soon! ❤
Meet another wonderful #BitsyBride! This is Lauren. She purchased a beautiful A-line modest wedding dress from us at Bitsy Bridal (Click here to make an appointment! ❤) and had it customized with flutter sleeves. Her dress is from the designer Saphia Blue and the style is Emerald.
Normally at Bitsy Bridal, we recommend in-house modest alterations to be done by our talented staff, however Lauren already had a seamstress in mind, so she chose to use them. That’s okay with us! We still ordered her new fabric directly from the designer to match her skirt to make sure that her flutter sleeves on her A-line modest wedding dress looked perfect.
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!
About the designer of this lace, fitted wedding dress:
Ella Rosa is the little sister of Kenneth Winston. Kenneth Winston offers their main line, Kenneth Winston Couture, and Ella Rosa. Ella Rosa still features the traditional charm of the KW main line, but with softer features such as less heavy embellishments, and a lower price point. Some brides do not want heavy beading and crystals, and Ella Rosa is the perfect line for them.
Skylar’s pup loves her wedding dress as much as she does! The hem of this wedding gown features Alencon-style lace appliques that take this look to a whole new level! The appliques layered over the middle layer of lace creates a delicate wow factor. Look at that gorgeous hem on the train, and that cute doggy face!

(Click here to make an appointment to discuss your custom modest needs!)
Where do we start with custom LDS temple build ups?
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!
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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, we no longer carry the Enchanting collection. However, please schedule an appointment to see what new collections we have and to see our other bohemian wedding gowns.
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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, we no longer actively carry Aire Barcelona designs. However, we do have a few remaining samples and similar styles available. If you are looking for a lace fit to flare gown or a gown with a large open back, schedule an appointment to see our full collection and find your dream wedding dress.
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.
