It's that time of year again!!!  Alta Moda Bridal's Annual Sample Sale - and it's AMAZING!!!  Here's more info from Alta Moda:
12341525_10153796178410477_4617878840268070133_n
We do this once a year. That’s it. One day only, killer deals, beautiful gowns, and high energy to get your wedding planning off on the right foot.
When & Where December 12th, 10 am – 2 pm at Alta Moda Bridal First Come, First Served (Only 8 brides at a time) *Brides have lined up well before opening the past several years. Since it’s first come, first served, it’s your call on when to arrive. What Our sample sale is when floor model wedding dresses are highly discounted. Nearly 80 of our gowns will be included in the sale. Bridal gowns marked down as much as 50% – 85%. Yep, designer weddings dresses (the dress-of-your-dreams type of dress) with prices starting under $1000, over half the selection under $1500, and most everything under $2000.  Who & How Whether you have that ring on your finger or know it’s coming soon, plan on saying yes to your dress at this sale. The sample sale is a playful, energetic day. Our gowns will be extremely low priced, but for one day only. Come prepared to make a quick and confident decision, and have your mom/friend/significant other ready to say yes along with you. Each bride will get her own fitting room and consultant for 40 minute. No rat race, no mad dash, no going it alone. Only sale gowns will be available that day. No accessories or non-sample gowns. Shhh…. As with every year, our staff (aka #AMBgirls) won’t know which gowns are on sale until the night before.
 
Helpful Hints:
  • Doors open at 10 am – December 12th ONLY
  • No appointments/No Previews – First come, First served
  • Once we unlock (just before 10 am) to go over details, you’ll get an estimated time you’ll be in a fitting room. Then, you’re free to go and come back before your estimated time or wait inside – no fuss, no standing around for too long
  • Only guests whose names have been called can go upstairs (where the gowns and fitting rooms are), but we’ll have a comfortable waiting area downstairs (Capacity limits)
  • You’ll get 40 minutes with a consultant and a private fitting room – No going it alone – We’re here for you!
  • Each bride can only have 4 gowns at a time, then wave through more as some are ruled out
  • No holding onto gowns after your 40 minutes is up
  • Most gowns are suited for street sizes 2-12, with some size 14+
  • The majority of gowns can be seamlessly altered for modest brides
  • Gowns are sold as is
  • Alterations not included
  • No holds and all sales final – Come ready to buy
  • Cash and credit card only (If you’re out of state or have a daily limit, get pre-approval from your card issuer beforehand)
  • Gowns will be lovingly bagged and must leave with the bride that day
  • We only do this once a year – So, now is the time
  • Space is limited; only one or two key decision makers/guests per bride
*If you think you’re not ready to say yes, this sale might not be for you. The prices are as amazing as the gowns, so we simply want you feeling confident when you say yes to your dress. Make sure to check this sale out if you are in the market for a STUNNING wedding gown!  Happy hunting, everyone!

Western Union Inspiration Shoot: The Venue

By

Some of you may remember this FABULOUS vintage ranch shoot that Culinary Crafts did last fall (see it here), but now that it's been out in the magazines, we wanted to focus more on each of the individual vendors who helped make this day sheer perfection.  Up first, we have the venue, LDW Ranch, which is located in Springville, Utah and really set the tone for this GORGEOUS shoot.  Here's what Mary had to say about LDW Ranch: "People often ask me, 'Where do you find these amazing venues?' I am always on the lookout for those one-of-a-kind exclusive venues that may perfectly fit the vision of a bride. LDW Ranch is a hidden gem that is destined to be one of Utah’s more unique and beautiful venues." Check out some of the breathtaking views of this beautiful property! LDW_Ranch Love the lush landscape at this property!  It's like being in your own little Eden. LDW_Ranch2 How gorgeous is this lakeside ceremony?  Just stunning! LDW_Ranch3 I love the mix of the romantic fabrics, rustic wooden accents, and natural beauty that we used.  This locale just lends itself to one-of-a-kind events. LDW_Ranch4 Plus, you couldn't ask for a better place for your wedding portraits.  It's SO PRETTY! LDW_Ranch5 LDW_Ranch6 You might also run into some new friends at the ranch too! :) LDW_Ranch7 We just LOVE LDW Ranch and are so excited for all of the fabulous events we'll be doing there in the future and it made for the perfect place for this magical inspiration shoot.  So, if you are looking for a unique ranch venue, DEFINITELY check out LDW Ranch!  You won't be disappointed!  Happy planning, everyone!

By

destination-appointments-graphic

Well, we know that the vendors here in Utah are AMAZING, but we are constantly thrilled to see the new and innovative things our local industry experts come up with - and our friends at Alta MODA are no exception!  We are ecstatic to announce Destination Appointments from Alta MODA!  This is a service for those brides who LOVE what this exquisite bridal shop has to offer, but may not live in Salt Lake City.  This is ESPECIALLY great for all of those gals searching for a modest dress and may not have a local source with a staff as experienced in these types of alterations and build-ups, but it's also just a great option for ANY bride who just wants a personalized, high-end experience with the crème de la crème of gown selection.  And, in true extraordinary fashion, this is no routine appointment, but an experience!  Their destination appointments will include:

  • Airport pick-up
  • A post-flight refreshment pack. Your choice: sweet or savory
  • Tailored appointments based on consultation calls and emails with you
  • Connecting you with the stylist that best suits your style and knows everything about your needs
  • Complimentary ground shipping of your gown to your home should you not wish to travel back for alterations

We love this new service that we can offer to our out-of-town brides!  And, kudos to you, Alta MODA, for this genius inspiration!  Happy traveling, everyone!
