Meet our real #BitsyBride, Andrea. Andrea chose to a wear a custom lace bodice ballgown, on her dreamy wedding day. Because she chose to utilize Bitsy Bridal’s custom in-house alterations team, her gown was perfect for her. Her gown is by the designer Mikaella.

Andrea’s perfect custom wedding dress features a handkerchief hem and a long sleeved lace bodice. The handkerchief hem is part of the original design of the dress, but our talented Bitsy Bridal alterations team created the bodice from scratch. (Click here for a blog post all about alterations!) Creating a custom bodice is a hefty task, but our team of talented seamstresses specialize in pattern-making, which is crucial to getting the perfect fit in your custom wedding gown.

First, in a custom alterations appointment, our talented seamstress will ask you what you want to change. Then, the seamstress will sketch her vision of what you explain to her. After you agree that she has captured your vision perfectly, then she will begin work on your gown. You will have at least three alterations appointments to make sure that your custom lace bodice ballgown, for example, is perfect.

Meet our real #BitsyBride, Abby. Abby found her perfect wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salk Lake City, Utah. She wore a lace tulle wedding dress on her special day. (To see more Bitsy Brides, click here)

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.

Our real Bitsy Bride, Charlotte, chose a modest lace crepe gown to wear on her wedding day. Her gown is from the designer Mikaella and features a cap sleeves, a full lace back, and a crepe fit and flare skirt. Her gown is from our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Charlotte custom ordered her lace crepe gown from Mikaella. Her custom order included the fully lace back and cap sleeves to keep the gown modest. Mikaella is a wonderful designer to make custom changes. Their customizations are reasonably priced and impeccably done. Our in-house alterations are another option for brides, but because she lives in California, it was easier for Charlotte to do the customization with Mikaella.

The skirt of Charlotte’s wedding dress is made of crepe. Mikaella’s crepe is lightweight and molds to the body beautifully. Then the skirt is fit and flare shaped. This further highlight’s the bride’s figure. The gown is very flattering because of this lace and crepe combination.

Are you looking for a custom wedding dress? At Bitsy Bridal, we can customize gowns in-house, and can custom order from many designers, like Mikaella. If this is you, then click here to make an appointment!

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, 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.

McKenzie, our real #BitsyBride is holding hands with her new husband and is turned towards him, looking over her shoulder. McKenzie paired and English net veil with her perfect wedding dress from Bitsy Bridal.

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.

Our beautiful bride, Becca, chose Star by Kelly Faetanini as her wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Click here to make an appointment!) This ivory, low back wedding gown features a beaded bodice, spaghetti straps, a flowy tulle ballgown cut skirt, and a horsehair hem. This gown floats beautifully around our bride because of the many layers of tulle in the ballgown skirt.

This photo shows the beaded, embroidered, V-neck bodice.

Here is a little bit about Kelly Faetanini gowns:

Kelly has a dress for every bride! She has a flowy, low back wedding dress Star. (Star is also available as a blush wedding gown or a blue wedding gown). However she also has a sleek and sexy low back wedding gown like Tamora (another favorite here at Bitsy Bridal). And she has every dress in-between! We love Kelly Faetanini because brides love her!

Here are the alternate colors of the Star gown:

As you can see, Star is beautiful in any of these colors. The beaded, embroidered bodice really compliments the low back and flowy skirt on this gown. Star in Ivory is more traditional and classic. Star in Blush is sweet and romantic, and Star in Blue is moody and modern. Oh and did I mention? IT HAS POCKETS! Make an appointment at Bitsy Bridal and fall in love with the Kelly Faetanini gown of your dreams. ❤

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.
