Always A Bridesmaid

Now, this is what you call pretty maids all lined up in a row.

Lily & Iris, a new boutique for bridesmaids and moms, has made its way to Utah — and wedding parties will never be the same. 

Opening JANUARY 4, this charming store in downtown Salt Lake (brought to you by the equally charming folks at Alta Moda Bridal) will have the most important women in your life dressed to the divine on your wedding day. We're talking designers like Cynthia Rowley, Amsale, Lela Rose, Ivy & Aster, Watters, Lynn Lugo, Dessy, Fancy, Sarah Danielle and Anna Elyse.

Oh, and did we mention there are grand opening promotions? Because there are so grand opening promotions.

For the first 25 brides to visit on Jan. 4 ...
Buy five gowns, receive the sixth gown FREE. Receive a sixth gown of equal or lesser value for free when you purchase five gowns at full price. Buy gowns for your five bridesmaids, or get a party dress for yourself! Or get the value of your most inexpensive dress toward a reception gown for yourself. The options are endless!

For anyone shopping in January ...
Receive 10 percent off your entire order if you place your order during the month of January (Jan. 4 - Jan. 31).

Utah Valley Bride is counting down the days to Jan. 4. Are you?

Marry Christmas

Now, this is a gift.

The 2011 Utah Valley Bride sauntered (yes, sauntered) into our offices this week — and we can hardly contain our glee. After months of gloriously gorgeous hard work, our 164 glossy pages request the pleasure of your perusal.

Below you'll find a glimpse at our four covers for the year — one for each dearly beloved season. (You'll find the Winter issue on newsstands after you've given your honey a New Year's kiss.)

So be of good cheer, engaged ones. It's here.

Here's The Deal

It's the most wonderful time of year, indeed.

Alta Moda Bridal is hosting its annual sample sale — a gorgeous gathering where gals and gowns "meet cute." It's THIS Saturday, Dec. 11.

You. Can. Not. Miss. This. Event. 

Like, for real. 

At last year's gathering, the Alta Moda staff arrived to a couple dozen brides anxiously lining up outside their wintry doors. And that fact alone warms our wedding-loving hearts. 

The deets ...
