For the last year, my life has been all things wedding. Looking for a dress was something I looked so forward to. I had a girls weekend in Chicago with my Mom and Sister and we had appointments at 6 different bridal stores. Mira was my first appointment of the weekend and they single-handedly created the most magical experience, the other stores could not top it. My stylist - Lizzie - was the nicest person on the planet. She knew it was my first appointment..let me pick as many gowns as I wanted to try on...never once rushed me...let us take over the store for an hour. It was just such a wonderful experience and Lizzie made it so positive and special. There was no push for sale. There was no time limit she kept me on...she was like one of our family enjoying the special moment. The third dress I tried on..was the one! Every dress I tried on afterward was just not as special as that third dress. She let me put it on again at the end..and we just all knew it was the one. There were hugs when we left because it was such a wonderful experience. Every other store we went to over the weekend couldn't touch Mira. Beautiful dresses everywhere yes...but pushy and rude sales people, overpriced dresses and accessories, the experiences just did not live up to Mira. Lizzie let us come back at the end of our bridal tour to try it on Again and purchase it! Throughout EVERY fitting, every store visit...Lizzie made the experience wonderful. It was one of my most favorite parts of the wedding experience...the dress, the fittings....It was like going to see my best friends every time I went into the store. I could not recommend this store or the people who work there enough. THEY MAKE THE EXPERIENCE and all of the sales specialists were wonderful....But I would personally ask for Lizzie!!!
Best Bridal Store in Chicago...I wouldn't even waste time going to others! Thank you Mira for making my wedding experience and my dress something out of a dream!!!!!
Very fortunately, I had the experience of ordering a gown, buying a sample, and having a new custom gown made in Mira couture. Julie is always so helpful, and her suggestions are very professional. The sample I bought is a red gown. When Julie first recommended it to me, I didn't feel very sure. But I'm so happy that I gave it a try. All my families and friends loved the red gown on me very very much! And all of the three gowns fit me perfectly. I highly recommend Mira Couture :)
I was blown away with what Julie did for me at Mira Couture! She designed a custom gown and veil for me that fit me and my style perfectly! I live in Brooklyn, and she was able to accomodate me whenever I was able to fly in to Chicago for fittings. Mira Couture will take of you, and make you feel totally secured in the dress that you choose for your big day! I could not be happier with my whole experience there!
Mira Couture is a charming store with lots to offer. If it's your first time looking for a gown or if you've tried several on, you are bound to find the one at Mira. I felt extremely comfortable even though I walked in without a clue about what silhouette I was looking for. The staff was extremely friendly, patient and super helpful. They allowed me to see all the gowns they had available. I loved being able to hand select the dresses I was interested in trying on, unlike other stores where they keep the gowns behind closed doors. At no time did I feel pressured to make a quick decision or to try on dresses I knew I did not like.
Mira Couture was amazing during the wedding planning process. Mira couldn't do enough to ensure that I was happy and taken care of and her staff was unbelievably accommodating. The staff was so helpful and nice and fun and I looked forward to each time I went there.
Her selection is beautiful- it is where I found my dream dress. I would recommend Mira to everyone looking for bridal or formal gowns!
I found my wedding dress at Mira Couture by chance. I had already been at the store & left, when Julie called me to say I had to run back because she just got the perfect dress in for me. She was right! It was the perfect dress & I loved working with Mira & Julie. Julie was so bubbly & great to work with. She knew what she was talking about & consulted my mom & me since she is a designer herself. Since they also design dresses, I knew my alterations were in good hands.
My experience visiting Mira Couture was so nice! I got to meet the owner of the shop, my stylist was so sweet! She was very helpful in picking out dresses. Their selection had many different styles. Their store also offers custom design. The store has great lighting and is well laid out. I would definitely recommend shopping at Mira!
I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day, and I owe it to my experience at Mira Couture. I had a custom dress done and the staff at Mira's listened to everything I wanted. My dress was exactly what I had dreamed of my whole life. Everything from the design, fit and quality was extremely well done. If you want to work with a very talented and knowledgeable group of designers and seamstresses go to Mira Couture!
I grew up watching shows on TLC like Wedding Story and thought how fun it would be to plan a wedding! Well, it's actually quite overwhelming especially when working full time! I had gone to several dress stores prior to Mira's and none were comparable to my experience at Mira's. I was fortunate to be scheduled with Julie and she is the absolute best! She is so easy going, but very well aware of how the bride is feeling and thinking when trying on the dresses. She knows her gowns in the store and truly gets to know her brides to make the best match with bride and dress. I did not know what I wanted, I was going in with an open mind, but that proved to be harder...until Julie came to the rescue!!! After a few I picked out to try, she suggested one and when I put it on it was so beautiful! I mean that's the hard part all the dresses are beautiful, but this one was it! Mira and Julie were so flexible with their times for fittings and truly made this the easiest and fun part of planning my wedding!
On my wedding day so many people complimented how elegant and timeless my dress was, but most importantly how comfortable I could move when dancing!! Julie, thank you for going over and beyond to make my wedding experience beyond perfect and special!
This place was amazing. The showroom was beautiful and you really got the feeling that the staff wanted you be happy. They altered my dress until it fit like a glove. I would recommend them to anyone!!!
I can't say enough positive things about my dress shopping experience at Mira! The staff (including Mira) are knowledgeable, helpful, and very accommodating. They made the experience fun and easy. They carry unique dresses that you can't find elsewhere in Chicago. I was able to purchase a gorgeous designer dress off the sample rack for an incredible deal. I had two rounds of alterations, although the second round was very minor. The seamstresses have decades of experience and know exactly what they're doing, and the cost of alterations was true to the estimate they gave me. I loved my dress and would recommend Mira Couture to any bride!
Mira is the absolute best. My mom had gotten her wedding dress here 27 years ago and it was very special to get mine there as well. The girls as Mira are incredible. So honest and helpful! They really want you to look your absolute best and make you comfortable. Mira personally styled my dress herself! Everyone LOVED my dress and kept saying I have never seen anything like that before which is exactly the reaction I wanted! They were extremely helpful and open to any ideas I had about changing some details on my dress! Alterations were reasonable and I could not be happier. I wish I could wear it again because it was perfect and I felt so beautiful!
Dress shopping did not come as easy to me as I had expected. After multiple stores and much distress we came to Mira. I tried on a few dresses but was so overwhelmed I felt as though I would never be able to find my "dream dress." I did however commit to a dress at Mira that day and felt a huge feeling a relief. However, that was short lived as the next day I got cold feet this was made worse by the fact that I live 6 hours away from Mira. However, Julie and the rest of the staff at Mira took time to talk to me long distance to calm my fears and make the alterations to the dress that truly turned it into my dream dress. Once the dress was finalized and I put it on I never wanted to take it off. Two months after the wedding I still wish I could put it back on. Thanks to Julie, Mira, and the rest of the staff for warming my feet and helping me create the dress of my dreams.
Wonderful customer service, I didn't think my budget would allow for me to shop at Mira Couture, but I was pleasantly surprised that it did! Keep an eye out for sample sales, and save up for the cost of alterations!
Mira was the first bridal boutique I visited to try on wedding gowns. The shop is small, but beautiful. The consultants are all very friendly and helpful and made me feel comfortable. Unlike other bridal salons they seemed genuinely excited for me and did not make me feel rushed while I was deciding on my gown. It was also nice to be able to browse the racks to pick out gowns that I liked. The bridal consultant pulled a gown for me that I tried on first that ended up being by wedding dress! Although I went to 6 other bridal shops to confirm that the dress was the one (including a shop in the suburbs that had the same dress), I returned to Mira to purchase the dress because of the great experienc I had here. Mira was no question the best bridal shop I went to. I particularly liked that they carry smaller sample sizes so that I did not feel like I was swimming in the sample sizes. I had two dress fittings and the dress fit perfectly. I picked up my dress the day before the wedding, and although there was a mixup with my bustle, they quickly fixed it righ away. I highly recommend Mira Courture and can't wait to go back with friends for their wedding dress shopping.
I loved my dress! I looked at tons of wedding stores in the Chicago area but as soon as I walked into Mira Couture I knew this store would be where I find my dress. They are so helpful, sweet, honest - which is so important - and know what they are doing. Plus the dress was very reasonably priced. I also got my veil, purse and belt/sash there as well.
I made appointments throughout the day for my mom and me to go to all of the high-end wedding boutiques in Chicago. Mira was our first stop, and truthfully nothing else compared to this experience. They listened to what I wanted and brought out the dress of my dreams. The even better part is that it was a sample, and I ended up paying far less for my dress than what I thought I might. Mira is a true designer and knows what works and what doesn't. She is absolutely honest, which I respect in anyone who is trying to sell me something. I would recommend Mira Couture to any bride. Go there even if you don't think you want to spend a ton of money. You might be surprised with what you find! They have gorgeous stuff.
The dresses available are great quality. If you want to try on a dress that they don't have- they will get it from the Designer for you, for a small fee (which would go toward your price for the dress if you buy it). I ended up purchasing a very expensive dress for a discount because it was a Sample. If it was tried on more than once I'd be surprised, it was in perfect condition. The staff, and Mira were always helpful at each of my appointments. The seamstress did a wonderful job listening to my alteration wishes and the dress was exactly how I wanted it when I went for my final fitting. It is a small store, and I would recommend not going on a Saturday. There are 3 dressing rooms, so you don't want to be there when it's crowded.
I was on the hunt for a Paloma Blanca dress I had seen online, so I went to Mira on a mission. The dress I had my heart set on looked quite different on that what I had imagined (of course!) Julie selected some other Paloma Blanca dresses for me to try on and about the third one in I found the one- no questions asked it was perfect! Julie was very kind and helpful throughout the entire process. She was supportive and helped me select a veil to go with my dress. I loved Mira Couture- which is small but perfect. When I was their shopping and for fittings I never felt crowded or like I was being rushed.
I can not tell you how happy I was working with Mira Couture. Their dresses are amazing, expensive but amazing. The staff their, including Mira herself, are awesome. They could not have been more knowledgeable, professional and they really know how to make you feel special. The only thing that was slightly bad was the cost for the alterations (over $400.00 on top of paying an extra $150.00 for a custom fit dress from the designer). Also, they recommend that I did not take in my dress any further around my bust even though I felt it was too loose. The day of the wedding I was constantly pulling up my dress..but that may have been because I was basically drenched with sweat all day. If it hadn't been 106 degrees that day I don't think it would have been sliding down so bad and you can't blame Mira for that...I do wish I had followed my gut though.
All in all, Mira Couture is amazing and I would highly recommend them to Brides and MOBs!
