Welcome to Alta Moda Bridal’s Blog

There really is something special about Liancarlo wedding dresses. From the moment we got them in, our brides have fallen for their delicate details and fresh feeling.

Come join us this weekend for our big Liancarlo trunk show. We’ll have so many new gowns in-store, you wont want to pick just one!

So many new, beautiful things are in-store, we almost don’t know where to start. So, here you go – a chic as can be, cap sleeve beaded dress has arrived just in time for the Valentine’s Day engagements coming up. One Utah bride already said yes to this beautiful dress, and we couldn’t be happier for her.

She goes by Lilia, she exceptionally flattering, and unlike all those pins you’ve been seeing.

Welcome our newest Lea-Ann Belter wedding dress to Salt lake – she’s called Ruby and she has secret layers of sequins. Yep, you read that right, secret sequins. Sounds intriguing, right?
The gown is a slimming mermaid cut that if for the girly girl at heart.

Callie Tein, the talented designer (and a rather charming gal), will be flying into Salt Lake City to help our brides each put their personal stamp on their wedding dress.

Her 2014 collection will wow you with a range of shapes (think: dramatic mermaids, simple sheaths, romantic ballgowns) and personalities (think: BoHo, Vintage, Classic).

One of the ways (there are many) that Callie excels is in helping us customize her creations into uniquely modest wedding dresses. Check out our modest wedding dress gallery, as well as our Pinterest board to see just a sampling of what we’ve done together!

The clutches are generally special order and take about 8-12 weeks. Let us know how we can help keep your wedding-day must-have tidy and sparkly.

Ashley’s summer wedding was a perfect reflection of her impeccable personal style, from her stunning beaded Jenny Packham wedding dress to the classic ivory chiffon bridesmaids dresses (from Lily & Iris), to her beautifully neutral and classic bridal bouquet.

But we’ll let the wedding photos, by the fantastically talented Britt Chudleigh of Chudleigh Weddings, speak for themselves…

Hello, we’d like you to meet our beautiful bride Mahala. This gorgeous gal (who bears her lovely name from her grandmother) wore an exclusive modest wedding dress with 3/4 sleeves made from an Italian lace. It was so soft…almost swishy, and perfectly graced her figure.

Her vibrant fall bridal bouquet was created by Utah wedding florist Val of Flower Afternoon. Her now husband Ian, who, might we add, is a rather snappy dresser himself, looks extra sharp with his boutonniere and gold tie bar. We love a man who know how to subtly play up his attire! All of which shows up spot on perfectly in their images by Alixann Loosle.
