When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, LDS temples shut down. Church leaders halted weddings and other temple ceremonies to prevent the spread. The shutdown had an enormous impact on White Elegance, who specializes in providing temple clothing and white wedding dresses for LDS brides.
To help their business survive the pressures of the pandemic, White Elegance turned to Bank of Utah to help them apply for and receive PPP assistance. Bank of Utah provided White Elegance with the guidance they needed to qualify to keep their business and employees afloat until the pandemic subsided.

Now, with temples and churches re-opening, White Elegance is still in business and ready to outfit LDS women with the elegant, modest white dresses they are renowned for. In addition to LDS temple dresses, White Elegance carries a selection of affordable wedding dresses, baby blessing gowns, baptism dresses and suits, pioneer clothing, white face masks, and more.
