Welcome to Alta Moda Bridal’s Blog

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!

We absolutely love bridal market. We love the appointments, the shows, the hustle, cabs and Uber, hotels, travelling, gowns, pizza, coffee, fabrics, friends, and energy – all of it!

This season led us clearly to some dominate, beautiful, new bridal gown trends. All of which will be welcome by Utah and Idaho brides with open arms.

Meet Amy & Jimmy. The charming couple was married this summer in Boise, Idaho.

We had the pleasure of dressing the stunning bride, which, lucky us, is the third sister in this  beautiful family we’ve had the honor of helping find her gown. Thank you to this lovely bride and amazing family for taking us along on your journey.

We just landed from New York bridal market … and we have big news:

Yolan Cris wedding dresses will soon be making their way to Utah!

Their gowns are hippie-chic at it’s best. Romantic, strong, glamorous, rock-n-roll, with a dash of the classic feminine-vintage. Yep, that’s a lot of adjectives, but when you touch and see these crafted creations, you’ll see why the words just keep coming.

Gown arriving in Salt Lake City early 2015!

Liancarlo wedding dresses, with their romantic lace touches and gorgeous beading and embroidery, definitely hold a special place in the hearts of Utah brides.

Here are just a few of our favorites from New York Bridal Fashion Week. We are loving their beaded wedding dresses, their beautiful sleeved wedding dresses, and of course all the unique lace patterns!

It’s our favorite time of year: Leaves are changing, energy is high, nights are long, and New York Bridal Fashion Week is almost upon us.

If you’re like us and cannot get enough of dresses, designers, and desserts (I wanted an alliteration there, and what better “d” than desserts), join us via our social media. We’ll be (over) posting on Instagram with runway footage, the newest gown styles, and all of our favorite NYC gems. We love that city, we love bridal market, and we love finding the best, new things for our brides.

Coverage starts Thursday evening. Chime in – we’d love to hear your thoughts about what we post!

Hello, lovely Brides. Thinking of heading to Utah to find your gown?

Read on…

After having the happy privilege of dressing so many out-of-state (Utah, that is) brides, we’ve made coming to Utah for your bridal gown even easier.

Our Destination Appointments are designed for our brides who travel into Utah to find ‘the one’. We’re offering services such as airport pick-up direct to the store, personal snack packs, and free gown delivery. What could be easier?!

Sure, the flight is still an investment (time to cache in those frequent flier miles), but it’s worth the trip, the tailored experience, and the lessened stress of finding a modest wedding dress outside of Utah. We’re here to serve.

Give us a call at 801.531.1215 with any (and we mean it!) questions or requests you may have.

Hope to see you soon.  Happy Travels!
