Alta Moda Bridal Boutique
I really don't usually give 5 stars, but Alta Moda is a fantastic shop and I highly recommend them.
They are professional and friendly- Planning a wedding is a crazy and hectic time in a brides life, but the girls at Alta Moda guided me well and made it simple and easy.
They truly know what they're doing- I ended up landing on a dress that was recommended by the owner that I would have never expected I'd like!
I feel like I don't have to worry about anything when it comes to my dress and I love being an Alta Moda bride. That feeling is priceless. :)
Alta Moda makes dress shopping a wonderful experience! Every bride wants to look stunning in a unique gown. You won't find more beautiful unique gowns anywhere else. The staff at Alta Moda can not be matched. Even if its a busy day they make you feel like you are the only person in the shop. Everyone there has such great taste and style that you trust their instincts and opinions when trying things on. I would suggest Alta Moda to anyone looking for the perfect gown!
Worst bridal gown experience ever! Owner is very rude and pushy. They were not flexible in resolving my dress saga at all!!! If you are wanting a positive bridal gown shopping experience, definitely go elsewhere...anywhere but Alta Moda!
From the first visit to Alta Moda, I felt the way every bride-to-be should feel- special! The staff is attentive and thoughtful. Hilary, the owner, is an absolute delight to work with! Very professional and kind. I found my dream dress, and they helped me arrange alterations right there in the shop. I also found hairpieces and stunning earrings for my wedding day. Friends joined me on various visits for fittings, etc.- occasionally with babies- and that was never a problem. After my wedding, they let me know that they could assist in cleaning and preserving my dress, as well. The whole experience was easy and stress-free- and I felt like a princess on my big day.
I loved every minute of my dress experience with Alta Moda. At first, I thought that I would have a hard time deciding on a dress because there were so many good choices and I loved a lot of different things. However, when I put on my dress I knew it was THE ONE.
My dress came in on time and was even more beautiful than the sample I had tried on. Alterations were quick, easy, affordable and perfect. I couldn't have asked for a more stress-free process.
Brides, do yourselves a favor and make Alta Moda your first and only dress shop. Thank you to the Alta Moda team for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!
We absolutely LOVE Hilary and Justin and all the ladies that work at Alta Moda. My wife purchased her wedding dress from Alta Moda for our 10 year wedding anniversary and she looked absolutely stunning in it. Hilary and Justin are two of the nicest people ever and we would recommend everyone to shop for their dress at Alta Moda. Thanks for everything guys, you guys are the greatest :)
Alta Moda was fabulous to work with! The entire staff was very helpful and I absolutely LOVED my wedding dress :)
Very pushy. Two employees cornered me in dressing room to pressure me to buy dress.
Hillary and her staff are wonderful. They have such a great relationship with all the designers they stock, and it shows in the alterations that the designers will do for them. My dress was by designer Augusta Jones, and they altered the pattern to rebuild the top of the dress so it had sleeves and a Queen Anne neckline. Everything about the dress and the service at Alta Moda exceeded my expectations.
I purchased my wedding dress from Alta Moda last year and have recommended them to other brides I have worked with.
Their sales people are very friendly, professional, kind, and take the time to get to know your style. They compassionate help steer you through the exciting and stressful dress hunting process. They make every bride feel beautiful and special.
They are also very creative and can help you customize your dress with the help of their excellent alterations recommendations. They helped me make my dress convertible, creating a detachable bottom half making for a very flapper look to fit my 1920's style wedding.
They also have unique style selections and designers that you can't find anywhere else in Salt Lake City!
The biggest compliment I heard during and after my wedding was how amazing my dress was. Everyone, from the women to the men could not believe how amazing my dress was. My brother, who was surprised himself at how awed he was at my dress, couldn't believe how pretty I looked.
Alta Moda did an amazing job making the dress exactly what I wanted. We had to do a lot of alterations to make the dress suitable for the wedding ceremony and they not only met all of the specifications, but they made the dress a fashion statement. It was amazing! I have to thank their seamstress, Sarah, for her unmatched vision and talent. She is truly...
I was very happy with my wedding dress experience at Alta Moda Bridal. I am a very particular person and actually had a designer dress already in mind when I went to try on dresses. I called ahead and they ordered in a sample of the dress I wanted. I was the only bride in the store when trying on dresses, and had 2 people helping me and felt very taken care of. I think they pulled about 12 different dresses for me to try on. I ultimately ended up getting the dress I had originally wanted, but they were so good at pulling dresses for my taste that it was a hard decision ;) (which just means to me they are very good at what they do).
I did their temple ready service, and their seamstress, Sarah, was amazing. She was very attentive and great at listening to my input in building the sleeves and top for my dress. They made sure everything fit to a T. I was very happy with them.
They even will press your dress for you before the wedding (ie. after bridals and before the wedding). My only suggestion is that they include basic alterations in the price of the dress.
Be prepared to add 10-20% to the cost of your dress for fabric and alterations. The seamstress thought she was wonderful and my dream dress turned out terribly. I had appointments canceled on me and they talked about me when they thought I couldn't hear them. Once you pay, the staff is rude! Alta Moda was the worst part of planning my wedding.
I loved working with Alta Moda! They found the perfect dress for me and help we cut the cost to almost half...they are truly amazing. They also set me up with a florist to help me out. I felt like I was the most important person in the store. My dress turned out perfect and Alta Moda is to thank for that!
Alta Moda was wonderful to work with. They had intimate knowledge of their product, provided great events for wedding preparation and choose beautiful gowns to sell.
Excellent service!!!!Very professional and great sales !They have beautiful dresses there... After going to several places, I found my dress there, and it was not hard to fall in love with it... Really nice place to pick your dress and very friendly people...
Alta Moda Bridal should be your first and last stop when choosing a wedding dress. From the moment I stepped into the boutique, I was given all of the attention and time that a bride searching for the perfect dress needs. The designer lines that Alta Moda carries are superior in the wedding gown arena. Not just any store can sell a certain designer's dress. Alta Moda carries certain lines because the designers know that the store's and its employees posses a high level of professionalism, sophistication and education on the in?s and out?s of couture wedding dresses. I don't know how she does it, but the owner Hillary remembered my name every single time I walked through that door. We had planned for an early 2008 wedding, but due to a move and job changes, our wedding was in the summer of 2009. Still even after months had past from when I had dropped in the store, Hillary still knew my name, my wedding details, etc... She is AMAZING!!! The selection is great and I strongly advise you to TRUST the consultant's advice. I didn't even want to try on my Atelier Aimee wedding dress, but Melody asked if I minded just trying it on. After I put it on, it was clear that it was the one for me.
Alta Moda is the pink of perfection!!!
Of course, expensive.. but worth it!
Everyone was so great to work with at Alta Moda and they really made you feel like you were special and their only bride. They gave great suggestions for my dress and accessories and they are just a fun group of girls!
I didnt buy my dress from here but the dresses here were gorgeous!! They girls there were super helpful and made you feel like a princess. They made sure all the dresses fit perfectly and were tightened. They were very knowledgeable. This place is awsome because you can pretty much make your own dress. The designers are very flexible.
Alta Moda maintains one of the finest selection of unique and varied gowns of anyplace I traveled to. Living in California, but getting married in Utah, one would think I would have an easy time finding a dress in the bay area. I went to four stores and a special Etergie, and was still unsuccessful - until I found Alta Moda, and its owner, Hilary Anderson. I was simply blown away by her exquisite taste. Dresses from all four corners of the world, in every price range - and yet the selection is not remotely overwhelming. I came twice, from out of state as I mentioned, and they were lovely. I was having the hardest time finding a dress and then suddenly I put the last one on and wallah! They got it to me on time, had it sized correctly, and we had to do very little alterations to the dress itself. My only complain would be that at least one of the alteration hemming pins stayed in the dress and it got caught on my shoe after my ceremony - that took a little while to get untied with. I have some health issues that require particular fabrics and dress structures to manage comfortably, and they took the time to really listen and address all of the issues, including taking out 7 pounds of the fabric/train so that I could carry the dress on my body without straining my neck - and the dress looked perfect, as if that extra fabric had never even been there in the first place So, overall, a lovely experience, and a dress that I cherished. Thank you Hilary and the Alta Moda staff for everything.
Absolutely the best bridal shop in the Salt Lake City area. The staff is very responsive to your requests, and they do an excellent job at helping you select the dress of your dreams. The inventory is exceptional as well. Want a designer gown? Go to Alta Moda.
This was the best vendor I used. I cannot recommend it enough.
I loved the staff! I had 2 appointments to finally decide on my dress - and I think 4 fittings to complete it. The staff even allowed me a final fitting the day before my wedding! Everyone was so kind and helpful - it makes me want to find additional reasons to go back to the shop - even though I'm already married!
I wanted no other store to be involved with my wedding dress. At the time I found the dress I lived in Salt Lake. However, I then moved to CA. Although stores in CA carried the dress, I flew back and forth to Salt Lake to purchase and alter my dress. The people at Alta Moda are amazing- they truly want to make your experience with them perfect. I lost 40 pounds between the time of purchasing the dress and the wedding- they worked with me to fit my dress and were always flexible with the times/dates to see me. I would reccomend anyone to Alta Moda and it was an honor working with them throughout my wedding preparation. They made me feel beautiful like every bride should!
Thanks to Hilary and Alta Moda I received the most beautiful dress in the world! It was an Atelier Aimee dress, just gorgeous. Once you go to their showroom, all the rest look so blah!
Very happy with my dress.
Great selection of dresses and very helpful staff. They were able to answer all of my questions and helped me pick the perfect dress.
Alta Moda is always the first place I send brides after meeting with them, sometimes even before booking the wedding, because I know that they will have a great experience there. Hillary and her staff have a knack for finding the dress that brings out the best in any woman that walks in their door. Nothing can make my job easier as a photographer than a bride that feels confident and beautiful in her dress!

If you are looking for the best selection of gorgeous luxury gowns, you need to visit this boutique in Salt Lake City. I was lucky enough to do so, and I left so inspired I illustrated two of Justin and Hillary's favorite gowns. Having spent a little time in a design room myself, I am a bit of a fabric and trim snob- Hillary's taste in design and detail is superb, which makes for a lovely collection of gowns!
Alta Moda's gowns are amazing! Many of the Brides I shoot wear gowns from Alta Moda. Classy, sophisticated, unique, and cutting edge! I highly recommend them to any of my brides that walk through my doors!

I recently went into Alta Moda to help one of my friends find her wedding dress. We are both wedding photographers and knew that Alta Moda is the best in their industry. The staff was so kind and professional and we found her the most perfect dress and were able to even stay in her budget!
The "Chic"est boutique in Salt Lake City. We get to meet many brides on their wedding day; we compliment a bride on her dress and many times we hear the dream wedding dress was found at Alta Moda. Very professional owners and staff that are pretty much in tune with their clients' needs and the ever changing trends of the wedding industry. Should be on the top of your list.... Cheers!!

Homework: Collect those ideas you love. Gather together the images and print outs of styles that inspire you. Keep in mind, you might not love the styles in person or on you, but your ideas are the best jumping-off point.
Timing: Special order gowns take an average of 4 months to create and another 2 months to alter. Many options are available for quicker service, and so may places will happily help you find something off-the-rack, but time is your friend. You can save money and stress by ordering early.
Budget: It is important to have a general gown budget before you go dress shopping. Wedding dresses come in many budgets and categories. Having an idea of what you can spend will help keep you from having your heart broken.
Appointments: Though not all bridal boutiques require appointments, it is a good idea to call ahead. First, make appointments at those places requesting them, then get the hours of operation for the other salons. This can be a big time saver and insure better, more personal service.
Friends and Family: So many people want to share in your joy and there are definitely ways of including them all. However, for your gown appointments, consider bringing along only one or two of your most trusted confidants. More opinions can hinder then process and, inadvertently, hurt feelings. Perhaps your second string can attend accessory appointment, fittings, etc.
Being open minded: Try on a gown or two out-side of the box. You never know what you'll find from trying something new. It may either show you the path to the perfect ensemble or reassure your current opinion.
Finding THE one: Be prepared to fall in love. When you find the right dress, get it! Imagine if you waited a few months and the style was discontinued? Or, what if another bride were to buy the sample later that same day? Let's be honest, so much of the focus is going to be on you...make sure you LOVE what you're wearing.
