While we do not require facemasks, we want to make everyone is comfortable as possible when they are in our store. If you are interested in having your consultant or seamstress doing your fitting to wear a face mask please let us know!
Is there a limit of guests I am able to bring?
We are currently allow 3 guests per bridal appointment, and 1 guest per fitting appointment. If you are interested in having more guests, please inquire about scheduling a private appointment.
What is a private appointment and how can I book one?
In order to accommodate customers who wish to include more than 2 guests for their appointment, Mira Couture is now offering private appointments! Reserve for you and up to 5 guests for 2 hours to leisurely shop for the gown of your dreams. Sip champagne and be surrounded by the ones you love most to help you find the one! Reservations are $250 and are non-refundable and non-transferable. Call today to book your private shopping experience as space is limited!
Where is the best place to park?
There are a few options: our building offers valet parking for $15 (cash, Venmo or Zelle), street parking, or parking at the 900 N Michigan building!
Where are you located within your building?
When walking into the front door of 70 E Walton, go toward the right of the front desk and take the elevator to the 2nd floor.
What sizes are your wedding gown samples?
Most of our gown samples are size 8, 10, and 12, however, keep in mind they do run small. We have only one sample of each gown with the intention of showing the fabric, style, and design. The samples do not fit anyone perfectly, whether they are too big, too small, too long, too short, too straight, or too curvy; every woman has a unique shape. For this reason, wedding gowns are ordered according to your measurements and alterations are important so that your dream gown will fit every curve and inch of your body like a glove. Don’t worry—we are very experienced in clipping, pulling, pinning, tucking and doing our best to show you how it will look when the dress does fit you!
What is the price range of your gowns?
The price range of our wedding gowns to order range from $2,000-$15,000, with the greater majority falling between $2,500-$5,500. The majority of our formalwear designer collections start at $1,800 as well, with a large selection of them falling within $2,400-$5,000. Our custom garments are priced based on each unique style, silhouette, fabric choice and design details. Each project is one of a kind and requires a personalized quote once the design process has been finalized. In general, most custom wedding gowns are around $10,000, and custom formalwear around $5,000.
Are all of your bridal gowns custom made?
While we do offer the option of custom designing and making your dream dress, most of the bridal gowns you will see out on our salon floor are samples available to be ordered from a wide range of designers. Our evening wear and cocktail collections are a mix of styles that are custom made in-house, as well as styles featured from designers we carry.
Are samples available for sale?
Although not all dresses are available for purchase as a sample, we have an extensive collection of sample gowns available for purchase. Purchasing a sample gown refers to buying the dress here in the store, as opposed to ordering a custom sized gown. There are many benefits to purchasing a sample, such as availability and price. If your wedding date is soon, you may not have 4 to 6 months to wait for a gown to be custom-ordered. The option to have your dress immediately to start alterations right away may be the perfect solution for you.
Most samples are discounted, some samples can be discounted as deeply as 70% off. Because we are a smaller boutique and are looking to constantly refresh our collections, you will find many of our samples are in excellent condition and are newer than samples found in other bridal stores.
Keep in mind, wedding gowns are typically sampled in sizes 8, 10, or 12 and run small. It is never a problem for us to alter a dress smaller, even down to a size 0, but expanding a dress sample is sometimes limiting. For more information regarding a sample gown, please give us a call to talk to one of our knowledgeable consultants.
What should I bring with me?
You may want to bring a strapless bra to wear while trying on gowns. Also, many women feel more comfortable trying on gowns with a shaper, such as Spanx. You may bring heels if you would like, but it is not necessary, as may be more convenient to step on our pedestal to get a better look and feel for the gowns.
Do you offer in-house alterations?
Due to high volume and demand, we are currently only accepting alterations for events November 2021 and beyond.
We offer alterations as a convenience for our customers and only for garments purchased here in our store. You are not required to have your garment tailored here at Mira Couture, however many of our customers appreciate the value of high-end alterations and feel privileged to take advantage of this specialty service.
To find out more information about our currently alterations policy including minimums and rush fees, reach out to a Mira Couture team member.
Do you take walk-in appointments?
In order to ensure the best customer service, we do work by appointment only. We are happy to accommodate walk-ins when there is availability, however, this is often not the case.
