When a bride begins her search for her wedding dress, she may be feeling excited and nervous about choosing the right gown. At The Brides' Shop, we make it possible for her to find the dress and then add her unique touch to it. Our tailors are skilled in their craft and are here to help you create the perfect dress.
Our bride Megan was able to redesign the entire bodice of her gown. With her tall, slender figure, our tailors designed lovely sleeves and rebuilt the bodice to custom fit Megan.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Thank you for including us in your day!

Local Vendor Spotlight

As many of you might know, The Brides' Shop has been serving brides since 1965! We feel such gratitude for the continued support from the community and from the wonderful brides that choose to support our locally run business. In a day and age where the internet is at the end of everyone's fingertips, we find it more important now than ever to invest in the local economy and support small business. 

Our number one focus is always the bride, but we know there are many other details that go into planning  a wedding day. As customer service is our number one priority, we want our brides to be treated with care during their whole wedding planning process. We would like to introduce you to some of the fine, local retailers that are just waiting to make your wedding planning experience a delightful one. 

Dress Code.

We know that getting your groom to gather his groomsmen and plan a day of shopping is more easier said than done. Luckily for you, Dress Code offers a new way of shopping. Allowing the suit to come to them and eliminating hours of "painful" shopping. 

Dress Code is unlike other retailers, in that they do not sell their garments online and do not have a brick and mortar store. Instead, they offer a highly personalized clothing experience by sending style consultants to meet with you at your home or office. Here they are able to narrow in on your style preference, take exact measurements, and offer fabric choices. They even offer personalized liners with names and dates to add important details to your groom's wedding day attire. Because of their low overhead costs, your groom will not only receive top quality customer service, but also a custom suit at an unbelievable price. 
Suits range from $300-$400, but look like a million bucks!

Antoinette's Antique Jewelry.

If you are a bride that wants an engagement ring that is beautiful, unique, and tells a story, then look no further than  Antoinette's! This lovely little shop established in 1977 is located on one of the trendiest streets in Salt Lake City, 239 East and Broadway. Don't be alarmed if you walk up to the door and it is locked, just simply ring the doorbell and a friendly consultant will let you right in. The pieces at Antoinette's will make you wish that you could get an engagement ring for every finger!

Events by LMG

Now that you are engaged, you might be hit with sudden fatigue when you begin to think of all the things that need to get done. That is where an event planner can step in and take a lot of weight off your shoulders. From full on event planning to day of coordination, the experts at LMG personalize their service around you!
There focus is to create unique events that highlight the bride and groom and offer a warm and inviting environment for all guests. If you want your wedding day to look like it popped right out of a magazine editorial, then look no further than Events by LMG.

Blossom Sweet

Flowers are such a fun way to create your wedding day style. In fact, I recommend working with a florist first before planning any other decor. An artistic florist, such as Blossom Sweet, will offer creative and unique ideas for your overall color palette. They will help direct you to the best flowers to use for the season, and what colors work best together. We highly recommend Blossom Sweet as each of her lovely, floral creations leave us awestruck and excited to see what she will come up with next!

Layers Cake

As if cake wasn't already our favorite treat at a wedding, Layers Cake takes this delicious confection and turns it into an incredible work of art. Layers work with their brides one on one during a complimentary consultation and cake tasting. During the consultation, they will work with you to create a unique and fully customized idea to reflect your wedding day style.

Steven Robertson Hair

If there was ever a day to pamper yourself from head to toe, I think your wedding day is it! We definitely suggest hiring a stylist to take care of you and relieve that added stress of looking "perfect". If you want a true professional and the stylist of the stars, than Steven Robertson is your guy!
You have to book months in advance to get Steven to amp up your look but trust us, he's worth it! Steven is a multi award winning hair stylist and has worked for big name clients throughout the country. His wonderful talent alone is worth the wait, but when you meet him, your day will be all the more bright.

Elizabeth Taylor Frandsen Photography

There would be no point in taking so much time designing your wedding and paying attention to all the little details without an amazing photographer to preserve your amazing day in photos. We promise that the money you invest in your photographer will continue to pay off for the rest of your lives!
Elizabeth Taylor Frandsen is one of our favorite photographers. She has the natural ability to capture beautiful candids and creates lovely stories using images. Her pictures truly are worth a thousand words!

We promise to bring you more amazing vendors in the future, but these customer service oriented businesses are there to make your planning experience a wonderful one.

If you are still looking for your dress. We would love to dress you. Please call to book your appointment.

Lauren: Bridals

When a successful fashion blogger wandered into The Brides' Shop, we were beyond excited that we passed the test of great taste! Lauren runs a popular fashion blog and knew her followers would be eager to see what she would be wearing for one of the most important days of her life; her wedding day! 
Staying true to her unique and trendsetting style, Lauren chose a gorgeous Pronovias gown featuring ruffles and lace. Our in house tailoring team created a custom sleeve for the dress. With the addition of a beaded veil and glamorous accessories, Lauren was a stunning bride!
