Welcome to Alta Moda Bridal’s Blog

Over the last year and a half we have gotten to know and love Chantel, a seamstress with which we and many of our brides have worked.

Chantel has always been a designer, a creative, and this last fall she launched her first full-on collection – Chantel Lauren Designs. Think: great laces, flirty shapes, and flattering cuts. So now, we have the honor of being the first (exclusive to Utah) bridal shop to carry her darling designs.

We can’t wait to introduce you to season after season of her design evolution.

Who doesn’t love a good exit? That concept is one of the things we best love about low back wedding dresses.

Welcome the fabulous miss Houston by Hayley Paige.

This dress now joins us in a size 20 and is a part of our delightful size 16-22 collection. We’re not sure who is or isn’t fond of the phrase ‘plus-size wedding dresses’, but either way, we have a selection of couture, fashionable, and flattering plus size gowns in store that we’re sure the Utah bride will adore.


A couple of months ago, we got to borrow this beauty named Devoted from Anne Barge. We fell so in love with it, we had zero recourse but to bring in one just  for us and our brides. Happy to say that Devoted is now making a permanent home in Utah!

We are all kind of smitten with sparkle queen Hayley Paige. And now, we get to introduce you to Josie, our latest arrival.

Josie, with her grand but clean skirt, and her classically beaded bodice, becomes Dori’s sophisticated sister.

Come on in and meet Josie.

Meet Annie – the coyly beautiful gal who worked with us on creating her custom modest wedding dress. Maybe it’s her natural beauty, maybe it’s the darling groom in his  hip glasses, or maybe it’s her flutter sleeves – whatever it is, her gown, her hair, and whole her wedding look has already inspired us and many other brides. And her gorgeous images by Mandi Nelson pull you in even further….love what Mandi does!
