Do I need an appointment to visit Mia’s Bridal?
Currently an appointment is required for all appointments at our store to ensure you have the safest and best experience possible. This also allows for us to gain the appropriate information to allow your consultant to be prepared.
Can I bring my family and friends with me to my appointment?
Please do, but we are limiting the number of guests due to Covid-19. Ask your consultant about how many guests you can bring. Remember, too many opinions can lead to confusion. Also, we are a smaller salon, so space is limited. Although we all love children, it is best to not bring them to protect the frailty of the gowns and to allow for a more comfortable try on experience. Exceptions can be made, of course.
When should I begin gown shopping?
It is never too soon to begin your search. Some brides start the day after their engagement. Usually, it is best to start looking 10-12 months prior to your date. This allows you enough time to narrow down your selection and order the gown with plenty of time for alterations or any delays.
Help! I’m a last minute bride. Can I still purchase a wedding gown?
Yes! Dresses can always be purchased off the rack and altered to fit. We can also check stock with our manufacturers to see if they have anything hanging or in transit to their facility.
How often do new dresses arrive in the shop?
For wedding gowns and bridesmaids, there are 2 seasons: Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. We normally receive new dresses every week. So if you don’t see something on your first visit, if you come back later, you may find the dress of your dreams. We also have many Trunk Shows throughout the year. Trunk Shows are when a designer sends us a sampling of their newest collection to preview before we receive our store samples.
What is the price range of your gowns?
We offer a full range of designer gowns to meet any budget. Informal dresses typically range from $900-$1200. Formal gowns range from $1200-$2500.
Can I complete my entire bridal look (gown, headpiece, veil, jewelry, bridal belt/sash) at Mia’s?
Yes! We have all the accessories to complete your look. Ask us about setting up a Finishing Touches appointment if you’ve already ordered your gown.
Do you offer alterations?
Our expert seamstresses provide alterations on any gown purchased from our store. We no longer alter wedding gowns not purchased at Mia’s Bridal, however, we will alter bridesmaid, flower girl and mother’s gowns not purchased at our store, depending on lead time allowance and where the gown was purchased. The cost of alterations is not included in the price of your gown. Please make sure you set up an appointment. Bridesmaids typically need to be fitted 4-6 weeks prior to the wedding date; Wedding gowns should be fitted 8-10 weeks prior. Please schedule your appointment accordingly. We do alter regular clothing as well. For any type of alterations, we do require an appointment.
Do you offer wedding gown preservation?
Yes! Wedding gown cleaning & preservation services is provided by Wedding Gown Preservation Co. Bring your gown into Mia’s, pay the cleaning/preservation fee, and 6-8 weeks later (10-12 weeks during peak season) you will receive a call to pick up the preserved gown. The typical charge is $299.00 + tax, however, adding additional items to the box can incur an extra fee. Silk gowns or intricately beaded or lace gowns may also incur an additional charge.
What form of payment do you accept?
Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, personal check or cash.
What are your store policies?
