Welcome to Alta Moda Bridal’s Blog

Of the many fabulous trends happening in bridal-land right now, it’s no secret we’re loving the trend of long sleeves on bridal gowns. They seems to fit in any time of year (think of the groom in a suit – long sleeves are timeless), yet have a special mark for winter weddings.

Classic. Timeless. Stylish. And, quite actually, figure flattering.

Here are a few of our brides who donned long sleeves with beautiful success.

It’s been a good year…and it’s only July.

We moved to a shiny new home.

We brought in several new lines, including Hayley Paige, Leanne Marshall, Watters, and Claire Pettibone.

And now, in just over a week, we get to introduce you all to our sparkling new store manager. Combine that with a few other thick we have up our sleeves, we’re simply brimming with excitement.

It’s kind of fun writing a small, reflective, and grateful post mid-year. You should try it!
