The vast selection draws a lot of women to the store to find the one that works for them without having to bounce around every bridal shop in Utah. Well, it’s either their variety or the fact they sell Disney’s Fairytale Collection by Alfred Angelo.
4. Fantasy Bridal
Fantasy Bridal makes the list for their specialty in customizing strapless wedding dresses and crafting beautiful bolero jackets. They match the fabric to the dress so you’re not stuck with an awkward-looking “modesty piece”. They alter the dresses at the store so you won’t have to worry about the dress getting damaged in the travel process. Since they don’t do internet sales, you’ll want to stop in and talk with them in person.
