Our Bride Berkeley-Custom Dress Spotlight

Many Utah brides need their perfect dress to be LDS temple modest…

And that’s why so many Utah Brides choose to be a #BitsyBride! Here at Bitsy Bridal, we help those high-fashion brides wear the high-end wedding gown of their dreams. Every bride has dreamed of getting married in a legendary Lazaro wedding dress. ? He doesn’t make his wedding dresses modest straight off of production, but fortunately for our #BitsyBride Berkeley, we are able to source fabric directly from him. Every piece of fabric is a perfect match. This way, we made her wedding dress (and the wedding dress of countless other brides) an LDS temple modest Lazaro wedding gown.

Where do we start with custom LDS temple build ups?

Lazaro 3810 is a beautiful “Blush shimmer tulle bridal ball gown, strapless sweetheart neckline, draped bodice with natural waist, box pleated skirt with side pockets, chapel train. Berkeley opted to keep the skirt pleated, raise the neckline to a clean scoop and add a cap sleeve. She also raised the back and removed the draping in the bodice. The result looks like Lazaro himself sewed it, but in reality it was our highly talented team of in-house seamstresses and alterations specialists. Take a look at how Berkeley’s modest Lazaro wedding dress started:

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!

Dakota from Blush by Hayley Paige

Hello Lovelies!

Its time for another installment in our Hayley Paige saga. We’ve taken a detailed look at 3 Blush by Hayley Paige gowns and we are still waiting for our last one, Kingston, to come in. Today, we have Dakota, our second to last gown and the second gown featuring Marrakesh Beading.

The other gown in our inventory to feature Marrakesh is West.  As you can see there are many obvious differences such as silhouette, straps and amount of Marrakesh. But one that is not so obvious is the difference in lining colors.  West’s lining is Cashmere and Dakota’s is Nude.

WEST

DAKOTA

 

Dakota is from the most recent season of Blush by Hayley Paige. It has the very sought after demure skirt paired with a very princess-y bodice.

For Utah brides, this dress is an excellent option if you need a modest gown. We can very easily order the Marrakesh beading and make the bodice modest without losing the integrity of the design and without having it look like piecework.

The Skinny

Silhouette: Ball Gown

Neckline: V-Neck

Waistline: Natural – it actually falls just below the natural waist but not low enough to be a “corset” waist.

Straps: Cap Sleeves

Back: Keyhole

Fabric: Marrakesh beaded bodice and tulle skirt

Sparkle Factor: 4/5

The Marrakesh Beading is very obvious and the only way for it to be more sparkly is if it covered the whole gown.

Boho Factor: 1/5

This gown reaches clearly to the “princess” side of the spectrum. There is a little bit of a Boho vibe from the lace and relaxed silhouette of the ballgown but that’s about it.

 

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this gown. Now that it’s here… it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

I think it is such a fresh and flawless design from Miss Hayley Paige. What are your thoughts?

Until next time,

Becca
