Meet our real #BitsyBride, Annie! For her wedding, Annie wore a sweetheart neckline wedding gown from our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her gown is a belted, lace fit and flare, which she chose to pair to with a horsehair trim cathedral veil.

The sweetheart neckline is a very flattering shape on all body types, so it is very popular. When a bride wants to show off her shoulders, stylists often recommend a strapless sweetheart neckline, line Annie’s wedding dress. If a bride wants to show off her figure, as well, then stylists will also recommend a fit and flare silhouette.

Annie showed off her horsehair trim veil in the show, then she got cold and threw on a cute jacket for this candid shot. Photography by Lyndsey Kaye.

In her sweetheart neckline wedding gown, Annie took adorable bridal photos in the snow. These photos showed off her long cathedral veil and her sparkly bridal belt. Belting a wedding dress helps draw attention to the bride’s waist. This is especially important in a fit and flare wedding dress.

Our Bride, Tasha.

Meet our real #BitsyBride, Tasha. She found her perfect wedding dress at our shop, Bitsy Bridal, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her dream wedding dress was a beaded cap sleeve ballgown. This specific gown is by the designer Ella Rosa, which is a more understated, sleek line from designer Kenneth Winston.

This wedding dress features a cap sleeve, an illusion neckline and an illusion back. As a result, this gown offers optimal coverage for a bride who wants to be more covered. Then, the bodice of this perfect wedding dress also features beading, which adds glamour. The full ballgown skirt has lace trim on the hem for an added designer touch. Because of this ballgown skirt, the wedding dress draws attention to the bride’s waist, which is very flattering.

Tasha’s perfect wedding dress takes our breath away because of the long train and lace. Photography by Jessica White Photography.

Tasha’s wedding dress offers a level of modesty for brides who want to be more covered up, without sacrificing style. The term “illusion neckline” means that there is a strong, high quality, sheer tulle that covers the neckline or backline. Because of this, there is an illusion of a lower neckline or lower backline, without losing support.

We love Tasha’s dress because of the beading and attention to detail. Photography by Jessica White Photography.

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.

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. 😉

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.

Our Bride Courtney

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Courtney.

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.

Take a look at this gorgeous bride in a few of her wedding photos by Jacque Lynn Photography.

Our Bride Jill

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Jill.

This magnificent bride wore “Wendy” by Kenneth Winston. This designer does a brilliant job at classic sparkle, and Wendy’s detail is tribute to that. With the help of our alterations team, Jill was able to wear a beautiful beaded modest dress.

This gown began as a sleeveless sheath gown with finger-width straps and a low rounded back. Wendy’s neckline mimics a sweetheart look, but has a mesh detail that gives it more of a v-neckline. This stunning gown is beaded throughout in a diamond pattern and radiates a Gatsby feeling. The entire look is finished off with a small train of the same gorgeous beading.

Take a look at how Wendy began.

Jill worked with our alterations team to turn this beaded beauty into a modest piece of art. Our seamstress needed to do a complete rebuild of the bodice to turn it into a modest wedding gown. When a bride needs a complete rebuild, we start by drawing out a design that works with her vision. Then, we build a rough model of the new bodice, once the bride approves we can begin attaching it to the skirt and adding the necessary embellishments. For Jill this meant creating a scoop back that sat high on the back and a v-neckline. Finally, Jill went with a small cap sleeve to complete this brand new bodice. The new creation was beaded with the same design and detail that the skirt has. With the help of our alterations team, Jill was able to wear a stunning beaded modest dress.

Tamara Jennings Photography did an amazing job at capturing Jill in her custom gown during her bridals.

Our Bride Hannah

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Hannah.

This wonderful bride wore Renee by Ella Rosa. Kenneth Winston designs the Ella Rosa collection. Similarly, this collection holds the same design integrity as the couture collection. Renee shows the beautiful work Kenneth Winston does. Hannah added to the beauty of this gown by adding modest long lace sleeves.

Renee begins as a column gown with a floral lace pattern throughout. The v-neckline is edged with a floral scallop that continues up into the sleeves. The cap sleeve is created on a see through mesh, which follows into the back. This same mesh is used to give the illusion of an open back. The beautiful floral lace edges the back opening. Buttons finish this look, and run down the length of the back to the middle of the skirt. In addition, Renee comes with an optional belt, that adds a bit of sparkle to a classic gown.

Take a look at how Renee began.

Hannah worked with our in-house alterations team to build up this gown to be temple ready. Firstly, we began by filling in the see through back with ivory lining. The beautiful floral lace and buttons were still visible with this change. Our seamstress reconstructed the cap sleeves to compliment modest long lace sleeves. We added floral lace to the shoulders, which trickled down and throughout the sleeves. Finally, to finish off these lace sleeves, our seamstress added lace edging around the wrist bone. Hannah opted to wear the beaded belt during her bridals, which added a beautiful sparkle to her photos.

Our Bride Kaitlyn

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Kaitlyn

Our stunning bride wore Style 7704 by Ti Adora. This designer is in the same design house as Hayley Paige and Lazaro, and follows the same attention to detail, and certainly the attention to detail shines through in this gown! Kaitlyn worked with our seamstress to create lace sleeves and turn this beauty into a temple-ready gown.

Style 7704 begins as a sleeveless trumpet gown. The beautiful cashmere lace is embroidered with a subtle design that gives this gown a dimensional look. The sweetheart neckline is trimmed with lace detailing, which continues on into the back. The spaghetti straps on Style 7704 give a dainty feel and make the open back a focal point. Eyelash lace edges around the hem and train. This detail finishes off the feminine aspects of Style 7704.

Take a look at how this gown looks before alterations.

Kaitlyn worked with our in-house alterations team to create her modest dream dress. Firstly, we began by building up the neckline to fit garment lines. Meanwhile, we filled in the open back to make this gown temple-ready. Finally, we created customized long lace sleeves to turn this gown into a modest piece of art. We used the same cashmere lace to create a sleeve that hit at Kaitlyn’s wrist bone. The lace sleeves were completed by adding the same eyelash lace detail that can be found on the train. This small detail finished off the build up and created a cohesive look throughout the gown.

Our Bride Bayley

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Bayley.

This amazing bride wore “Mikey” by Mikaella. This Canada-based designer does a spectacular job at creating looks that radiate timeless and elegant. This modest bride wanted to step up the elegance and worked with our alterations team to customize this gown and create long lace sleeves and a modest bodice.

Mikey originally starts as a V-neck bodice with gathered mesh tulle around the bust and a sheer Guipure Lace midriff. Spaghetti straps support this gown, and meet in a near V-shape down the open back. The gathered multi-tear skirt is made up of English netting and edged with a two-inch horsehair trim. A small fabric belt is cinched around the waist to give a sense of transition between the bodice and the skirt.

Here is how Mikey began.

Bayley worked with our seamstress during alterations to create her customized modest look. She kept the look of the gathered mesh, but built it up into a temple-ready neckline, that mimics the original neckline. Then, our seamstress created long lace sleeves using the same Guipure Lace as the bodice. We also took this lace and filled in the back. Finally, the bodice was lined with an ivory lining to cover up any of the sheer aspects, but the sleeves were kept exposed to give more dimension to the gown. Bayley removed the fabric belt and replaced it with a small sparkle belt. This belt adds a little bit of flair to this look.

While the photographer is unknown, they did a fantastic job at capturing Bayley in her stunning one-of-a-kind wedding gown. Take a look at her photos to see the amazing work and her jaw-dropping backdrop.

Our Brides Caitlin and Lauraine

Meet our Bitsy Brides, Caitlin and Lauraine.

Both of these stunning brides wore gowns from Ella Rosa by Kenneth Winston. Ella Rosa is designed by Kenneth Winston and includes the sparkle and attention to detail found in his couture collection. Lauraine wore “Riley” and Caitlin wore “Rosalind”. These brides came in separately to pick their gowns to keep them a surprise from one another. However, they both unknowingly decided on the same designer!

Riley is a ballgown that features a sweetheart neckline and ruched bodice. The satin belt sits around the natural waist to emphasize the smallest part of a bride. This belt is accompanied by a beaded floral design. The English Netting gives this gown a romantic feel and allows for a lot of movement. Buttons down the length of the gown finish off the look of Riley. Lauraine chose a light gold color, but Riley is also available in traditional ivory.

Rosalind is a fitted gown that features a double layer of lace. The top layer is an Alencon lace that begins heavy in the bodice and trickles down the skirt. The next layer is a Chantilly lace that brings a sense of romance and delicacy to the look. Rosalind’s v-neckline has a sweetheart lining that will flatter all bust sizes. The stunning low back shows off a see-through layer of lace that gives the illusion of a larger open back. Finally, Rosalind has some incredible detail to finish off the look. The beading throughout the gown allows for a little bit of glimmer without being too overpowering. Also, the buttons down the back give a similar feel to Riley, but stop mid-skirt to compliment the fit of the gown.

Jadie Jo Photography did a fantastic job at capturing these brides in their gowns on their special day.

Our Bride Katherine

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Katherine.

This lovely bride wore “West” from the Blush by Hayley Paige Collection. This show-stopping gown features Blush by Hayley Paige’s unique Marrakesh beading throughout the entire silhouette. This mermaid cut features a sweetheart neckline and low rounded back.

First, this is how West began.

Katherine worked with our in-house alterations team to create the details on her gown and make this a unique piece of work. She opted to keep the same structure that West originally starts with. However, our seamstress removed the original spaghetti strap and added a tulle off the shoulder wrap to give this gown a special touch. This gently covered Katherine’s arms and scooped across the top of her back, giving her a soft and delicate look. Katherine purchased an overskirt out of town and wanted to incorporate this into her wedding day look. Our seamstress added hooks to the waist of the gown, so the skirt could easily be added or removed as needed.

Our Bride Morgan

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Morgan.

This stunning bride wore “Kate” by Tara Keely. Lazaro designs the Tara Keely collection, and his attention to detail continues to shine through in these gowns. Kate is an excellent example of how well Lazaro does a glitter gown! Morgan added a modest flutter sleeve, which gives this gown a custom spin.

This gown first began as a strapless beauty that features a gorgeous sweetheart neckline and low back. The beaded floral and chevron design shimmers and dazzles in the light. This sheath gown hugs all the right curves and shows off a bride’s beautiful shape, then delicately hangs off the thigh. This fabric and design is complimented by a sweep train. Kate includes an optional tulle overskirt that gives this look a longer train and more volume.

Take a look at the original gown.

Here is a peek at how Kate looks with the overskirt included.

Our seamstress worked with Morgan during our in-house alterations to create her modest vision. First, she built up the top with a v-back and high neckline using the same shimmering fabric. During build up alterations, we carefully construct new bodices and necklines to ensure every bride is seeing their idea come to life. Finally, this classic look was complimented with a whimsical modest flutter sleeve. We used the same fabric that edges the bottom of the dress to create a beautiful and cohesive look.

Shameless Photography did an incredible job at capturing the beauty of this bride and her gown in her outdoor garden-type venue.

Our Bride Jaden

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Jaden.

This magnificent bride wore “Rowan” by Ella Rosa. Ella Rosa is the little sister of Kenneth Winston, and offers the same couture look at a friendlier price. Rowan captures this designer’s well-known subtle design look perfectly. This gown originally includes an illusion back and beaded straps. However, Jaden worked with our in-house alterations team and made this gown a strapless beauty. She elected to keep the beaded bodice and clear beaded buttons that follow the length of the back, but turned the neckline into a classic sweetheart.

Our Bride Taylor

Meet our Bitsy Bride, Taylor.

Our bride looks radiant in “Winston” by Kenneth WinstonKenneth Winston Couture does a beautiful job with multi-layer detail. The longer you look at this dress, the more detail shines through. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline and a sheer back with exposed boning. The heavy beading slowly tapers out below the waist and gives this gown a look that screams royal. Under the top tulle layer on the ballgown skirt, is a layer strictly of sparkle. This gown glimmers in any light setting! The pattern on the bottom of the skirt helps tie the whole look together and is perfect for a bride who wants a jaw dropping gown.

Taylor paired this gown with a beaded belt and bling hair piece. Winston compliments added sparkle very well, or will be stunning on its own. Take a look at how amazing Taylor and her gown look in her southern wedding.
