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.

Our real bride, Chelsea, found her perfect wedding dress here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City, Utah. This #BitsyBride chose a beaded backless wedding dress which features an A-line skirt and key-hole back. Then, Chelsea chose to do custom alterations with our Bitsy Bridal in-house alterations team. Her wedding gown is the Dakota gown by Hayley Paige.

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. ?
