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.

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.

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.

Our Bride, Elise.

Meet our real-life #BitsyBride, Elise! Elise chose a modern crepe wedding dress, style 2105, from our ever-chic designer, Mikaella, here at Bitsy Bridal in Salt Lake City. In order to fit within LDS temple standards, Elise chose to customize her wedding dress with the designer to make it more modest, and keep it just as beautiful.

How did we make this modern crepe wedding dress modest?

Mikaella‘s style is chic and simple. Their quality is nearly unmatched for the price. Because of this high quality production, our shop trusts the Mikaella design team to do customization for our #BitsyBrides. Our extremely talented and experienced in-house alterations team is skilled at these extensive alterations as well, however sometimes it is best to let the designer do it for us. Sometimes this saves the bride time and money! This was the case for Elise and her modern crepe wedding dress.

Elise said yes to her dress at Bitsy Bridal. Photography by Sarah Meyer.

The original design of 2105 features a wide boat-neck and a plunging V-back. With the help of Mikaella, we seamlessly brought the neckline in on either side, and raised the back. This honored Elise’s religious standards beautifully.

Check out how the dress started:

Here you can see the major change made to the back of Elise’s dress:

Our Bride Becca

Meet our real-life, #BitsyBride, Becca! She wanted a flowy, low back wedding gown, and that’s what we gave her!

This photo shows the gorgeous train of the dress.

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. ❤

Dress of the Month: Pippa

Continuing our Hayley Paige reveal. Next up is Pippa!

Pippa is so amazing that we have decided to have it be the dress of the month! Read on to see why!

As you know, Hayley Paige is famous for her fabulous, flirty ball gowns and Pippa definitely fits that bill.  Layers and layers of tulle and a sheer lace bodice are what create her unique charm.

The Skinny:

Silhouette: Ballgown with tiered skirt

Waistline: Natural

Neckline:  Illusion

Back: Open with strap detail

Color: Ivory with nude lining on bodice (also available in solid ivory)

Sparkle Factor:  0/5

Boho Factor: 4/5 – Its unusual for a ballgown to have such a bohemian vibe but Pippa pulls it off by adding a sheer bodice with a combination of organic laces on top of a voluminous skirt.

The little details are where Pippa truly shines!

~The back has crisscrossing straps that are dainty and fabulous.

~The lace on the sleeves is perfectly placed to flatter and elongate the arm while still allowing for free range of motion.

~The skirt is accented with horsehair trim to add body and visual interest to the soft tulle.

 

 

Pippa is a gown that fits with the trendy vibe of the times but also has a classic style that will never go out of fashion.

We are getting down to our last few Hayley Paige gowns! Check back to see them debut.

Until next time!

Becca
