Welcome to Alta Moda Bridal’s Blog

When a bride craves a little sparkle and a little glam, she turns to Hayley Paige. The latest of her gowns to roll into Utah is called Houston; she’s trademark Hayley with an open back, sparkle strap, and a soft, swing-y skirt.  And, as if we weren’t already smitten, she’s in a soft and warn blush tone – perfection!



Lily & Iris is closing its doors. Though we’re sad to see our sister store retire, their closing sale is one not to be missed.

Head there this Saturday to score unreal prices on bridesmaids dresses, decor, fixtures, merchandising displays, and jewelry.

Welcome, welcome to the hip, stylish, and sweet designs of Leanne Marshall. We couldn’t be happier that her gowns are now in-store at our Salt Lake City boutique.

Widely known for winning season 5 of Project Runway, this NYC based designer loves lace and flirty silhouettes as much as we do. We simply know Utah brides will adore these designs.

You know those people you work with who are a light every time you see them? Well, that sums up Abbey and her mom. We wish they could have stayed around the shop forever (we’re hoping the pop in for a visit soon), so, we’re extra grateful for the few months that let us get to know them and let us be a part of Abbey’s wedding.

The bride wore a custom Augusta Jones modest wedding dress.

Happy Labor Day and may you savor the last days of Summer.

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.
