Utah's Most Impressive Bridal Gown Experience – Alta Moda Bridal is known for having the most beautiful designer and couture bridal gowns in Utah, so my expectations were high on my first visit. My first visit (and every visit thereafter) have been nothing short of perfect. The first time I stepped foot in their boutique I was dazzled by the breathtaking gowns and impressed by the knowledgeable, professional and amazingly accommodating consultants. The attention to client needs, one on one help and knowledge of the inventory can't be beat. For my wedding I wanted two wedding gowns, one long and one short. Samples of my gowns did not exist anywhere within the state, but of course Alta Moda had an existing relationship with the label and was able to order a sample of each of the two gowns I desired. The samples arrived on time as promised and when I was ready to order them for myself there was no question I could ask that their team didn't have an answer to. I was able to select from the colors available and customize my gown as I wished. When my gowns arrived my alterations process was easy and on my wedding day my gowns were pressed ad steamed to perfection. I've since had Alta Moda preserve my gowns so I can enjoy them forever.
I had a memorable experience myself, and for this reason I recommend Alta Moda Bridal to my friends and clients.
Cheers to Hilary & Justin and the team of amazing people who run the show, no better inventory or experience exists within the state!
Thinks she owns the Utah wedding industry. – Wedding planners, there are better places to send your brides for their dress needs.
Wedding bliss – After going to almost every other dress shop in Utah and not finding anything I liked, a girl at one of the other shops told me to call Alta Moda. That was so nice of another shop to refer me to them. Right when I walked into their shop, I knew I'd find my dress there. Maybe I am picky, but I didn't want my dress to be in a scratchy, loud fabric. The dresses everywhere else we stiff and cheap looking and I wanted something nice for my wedding day. I worked with Melisa and she was so helpful, even though it took me a few visits to make my decision. She always knew who I was and had my #1 and #2 gowns ready for me. I ended up buying a Monique Lhuillier dress that I totally love. It was so unique and Melisa even help me design it so it would be modest. I got so many compliments on my wedding day. I loved Alta Moda and can't wait to bring my sister there when she gets engaged.
Nothing but l.o.v.e. – Like a most of the posters, I loved every minute at AltaModa. I don't write reviews too often because I hate junk mail and registering, but each time I went into AltaModa I was welcomed with a smile and sometimes a hug. Kindof weird, but fun. They deserve it!!! Yes, their gowns are expensive, but worth it. I went on a diet before my wedding and lost alot of weight, but the seamstress Pamela took my dress in and made it perfect. My sister bought her dress in Nashville and spent about $600 for the same alterations I had but I paid less than half of that. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable, they even ironed my bridesmaids dresses I bought somewhere else. They didn't even charge me for it. The place where I bought them even wanted $25 each just to iron them. AltaModa was one of the best wedding decisions I made. My dress was perfect and its what everyone talked about m whole wedding day.
Dodged a bullet! – All I can say is, "Wow." Beautiful dresses, ugly attitudes! During our second trip to the store my daughter tried on a beautiful but costly dress, again, to see if she really loved it enough to justify the cost. When she was in the dressing room I overheard the owner, no less, tell her... "Listen, I've done this a hundred times... go to another store, just to appease them, and then..." she continued to explain to my daughter how to manipulate me into coming back to buy the dress. Only problem was, she didn't know that Mom was within earshot. I opened the curtain to the dressing room and told her I will NOT buy a dress from her or this store because I was NOT going to have my daughter manipulated, and I would not be manipulated, either. She, the owner, tried to put a spin on it and flat out lied to try to cover herself. Moral business ethics? Couldn't find any. Lies? Coniving? Manipulation? An abundance. Some people will do anything to make a sale. Is there a way to give no stars??
I'm sorry if anything we did seemed manipulative, but the accusations are unfounded.
On her 2nd visit she came w/a large group of friends to show the top gown, it was only then we were told it was over budget. We found others she liked at lower prices, but when shown to the group, they were negative & dismissive to her opinion. In the fitting room, I watched her eyes well-up. I tried to comfort by saying only her opinion matters, and that going to 100 stores would not satisfy all opinions. It wasn't intended to manipulate, but to keep her opinion from being overrun. Everything was said openly, honestly, and I stand by it. You then entered upset and accusing me of manipulating. As much as I tried to discuss this w/you, your opinion was already set.
Our goal is to make brides happy. It's her day and she should wear the dress she loves. I don't see how this can be considered a fault. I'm sorry I wont get the chance to work w/this bride, but hope she found a gown she truly loves.
They saved my wedding – I felt I should share my dress experience. Before visiting dress shoppes, I looked at a million dresses online. I fell in love with a Monique Lhuillier lace gown with lace sleeves. I called Alta Moda only to find out that the dress would be more than double my budget. So I went to another bridal shoppe and tried to match the dress but nothing compared. They showed me a catalog with a gown that looked almost the same, and promised me it would be just as good and half the price. Too good to be true? So I ordered in without ever seeing it. With less than a month before my wedding I find the dress arrive looking incredibly cheap being at least 5" too short. I'm all about shoes and had the perfect pair of 3" heels picked out way before the dress. But even with flats it would have been too short. In the stress and pressure I ordered a second dress I wasn't happy with. Brokenhearted, and with just two weeks to go, I went looking at other bridal shoppes, and gave Alta Moda another try. I knew it was cutting things close, but the staff was very helpful and friendly. I had assumed everything would be over my budget, but they showed me gowns I could afford, and I found one more beautiful than the original dress. Since it was too late to order, they sold me the floor sample, and later that same day I was meeting with the seamstress. The alterations were outstanding, and finished with enough time to still get bridal portraits taken. I felt beautiful, my wedding was saved and I couldn't be more happy. I'd recommend Alta Moda to any bride.
Amazing gowns, better service – Shopping has always been one of my strong points. So, when it came to finding a bridal gown, I though it would be easy. I though I could find a dress on a trip to LA or Chicago, but had no luck any place, until AltaModa. After having sales girls be so rude to me in LA, I finally started looking in Salt Lake and Park City. Going to AltaModa was instantly different. The consultant was funny and smart and listened to what I wanted...not just to what she wanted to sell.
I found a perfect Monique Lhuillier gown. It came out over my budget, but it was soooo worth it. The alterations were amazing. Pamela did a perfect job. The staff has a drink for me each time I came in for alterations and always asked how I was doing with my plans. They are the best place and the only place in Utah worth going.
I love it there – I have so much fun every time I go into Alta Moda for an appointment. I ordered my gown on the first day I went in, but had spent alot of time talking to a few of the employees over the phone first. This was so helpful. They told me what to expect, what to bring, and how long I'd have for my appointment....this made finding my dream dress easy and fun. My mom even got her MOB dress there. When my gown came in (early!) it fit so nice. I only had to have the length changed and ties put in to pull up the train. The seamstress I am working with is so sweet and knows her stuff. And she is being so sweet to get it done really fast.
My engagement is short, only 21/2 months, so I had to pay extra to get my dress faster. Does it really take 4 months to make a dress? Oh well, my friends say this happens at all the shops, so no big deal.
The owner or maybe one of the other girls will be coming to my bridals with me! This is so exciting that the owner would actually do this, because my mom wont be there for them. Now I don't have to worry about keeping my dress clean.
Alta Moda helped with so many things. I am so happy I choose to get my dress there. Don't waste your time going anywhere else.
so in love – AltaModa was the best part of my wedding planning! They were so attentive and fun. I worked on finding my dress with Katie. She was relaxed but still professional. I never felt any stress from her (even though my engagement was "short") she was able to bring me dresses that work with my small time frame and budget. She even gave me business cards of people she thought I'd like for my other wedding vendors. I choose my photographer based on her suggestions and really loved them too. Like one other bride that posted here, I bought an Augusta Jones from them and had changes made. I loved my dress. It did need some alterations when it came in, but everyone tells me most wedding dresses do. I got so many compliments at my wedding about my dress. It was totally worth it. My wedding day was stressful since it rained, but I looked and felt really good thanks to them.
Bad Idea – My dress came in very late- about two weeks before my wedding. I had to end up buying an entirely new dress a week before my wedding because it didn't end up fitting properly and looked awkward. Alta moda thinks they are the best and will treat you that way. The employees of Allta Moda lied to my face. They gave my rude looks because I was not satisfied with my dress. Do not go to Alta moda!
