Mira Couture far exceeded my expectations, and they were one of my favorite wedding vendors! Five stars just isn't enough to convey my appreciation of this bridal boutique. The first time my mother and I stepped into Mira Couture, we were overwhelmed with how warm and genuine the entire staff was. Courtney, my consultant, was so sweet and accommodating. It was the first store I tried on dresses, and while I loved the dress I would ultimately choose, Courtney didn't make me feel pressured to buy it on the spot. We returned the next day and I knew I had made the right decision, not only because I loved the dress, but because I felt so comfortable with Courtney and the rest of the staff. While the dress fit almost perfectly when it arrived, I worked with Mira Couture for the next few months to make some modifications to the dress. Each time I visited for a fitting, I was greeted with smiling faces, cheery personalities and warm hugs. I felt like all of the girls has become my friends! The month before the wedding, I lost a couple inches of weight. When I went for my final fitting a week before my big day, it needed to be taken in. They assured me it was no problem and quickly completed the alterations. My dress was perfect when they finished the modifications and alterations! I got so many compliments on the style, but I also got quite a few on how well it fit me. The alterations team at Mira Couture does top-notch work. I can't thank Mira Couture enough for making my dress buying experience exceptional and fun!
I felt like an absolute goddess on my wedding day and I know it is massively due to the incredible wedding dress I got from Mira Couture. I got married in San Diego, and needed a wedding dress that would work for my coastal wedding. I had a vision of wearing gorgeous lace, but also having the dress be open enough for a West Coast wedding. I worked with Courtney at Mira Couture, and she was such a positive and happy person to help me find my dream dress! I found a Martina Liana wedding dress that was EVERYTHING I was looking for -- style, feel, texture, movement... it had a train to die for and little details that were perfect for photos and memories. I also was lucky enough to get the dress during a trunk sale and it was super affordable. The alterations were on the higher end but the dress did have a lot of lace to work with, and they added in dress weights and boning to help the structure. I loved everything about my dress and can't stop staring at photos! Thank you so much to ALL of the women at Mira Couture. You all made me feel so welcome everytime I came in for a fitting, and were honestly like having new gal pals helping me find my dress. I would highly recommend this boutique for anyone looking for a stunning wedding dress - you will find it here absolutely!
Mira Couture is the only option when searching for your wedding gown. This is hands-down the best place to buy your wedding dress in the Chicagoland area. First - the staff is AMAZING. They are the best at what they do and they are SO NICE. There is an amazing selection of dresses at all price points as well. I ended up wanting to purchase the top of one dress and the bottom of another other and Courtney made it happen! We pieced together my dream dress and it's absolute perfection (& reasonably priced!!). I cannot recommend the team at Mira enough, don't waste your time anywhere else.
I came to Chicago from Michigan specifically to go to Mira, and they were great. I found my dress there, and they were very kind to let me facetime with my mom during the fitting since I came alone. They were great with shipping my dress to me as well. My only disappointment was that they ordered the dress clearly in a size up from my actual size. I know this is probably common practice, but they didn't tell me they were doing it, and the dress was too big when it arrived. I didn't have a huge alterations budget, so when I got it altered it was fine-ish but the dress did not fit as I'd hoped. It still bothers me that I spent so much on a dress that didn't fit properly in the end. So if you go here (or probably other places), check what they are ordering.
Had the best experience at Mira. Highly recommend you check it out. The staff is great!
I loved my experience with Mira Couture! They made the process of trying on dresses really enjoyable, and of course they had just the dress I was looking for. Even though my first fitting wasn't until eight weeks or so before my wedding, they graciously made time for me to come in for two other "try on" appointments in the months before, just so I could see how it looked on! The alterations process was very easy, and they did a perfect job with the alterations. I looked exactly the way I had hoped I would. Courtney was wonderful to work with, and I really appreciated her insight along the way. I wish I could buy another wedding dress!
5-star treatment all the way! If you’re looking for a gorgeous collection of wedding gowns and exquisite customer service-Mira Couture will not dissapoint. This is such a gorgeous and warm shop that caters to brides needs and desires. Their down to earth staff is fabulous! I was living in Detroit and traveled to Chicago to visit this shop-and I’m so glad I did. There were so many gorgeous gowns to choose from. I found “The One” and it was perfect. Julie and the entire Mira team were so easy to work with and their attention to detail was impeccable. I even got my alterations done at the shop. Mira Couture made it easy to coordinate my alterations schedule (since I was traveling from Detroit). My gown was packaged perfectly to bring it home for the big day, and they made sure I knew exactly how to care for it. The thought of dress shopping stressed me out, given all the horror stories I’ve heard from friends, but Mira Couture made the experience so fun. Their honesty and professionalism will never go out of style!
I said yes to my dress at Mira. I booked my appointment about 2 months in advance and read a few reviews that the store was hard to find. To clarify, it is on the mezzanine level. If you are standing at Starbucks the entrance is past the cupcake place and the dog store and down a hallway to an elevator. We went the afternoon before just to find it and met our consultant, Khrystyna. She was instantly very welcoming and made us feel right at home as did the other girls in the shop. They even let us look around and answered our questions. We arrived the next morning and she already was picking out the dresses we told her that we loved yesterday and let us look around more. Graciously adding multiple dresses to my collection in the fitting room. A few people from my party where running a little late due to traffic so we decided to start with a dress that wasn't my favorite but I wanted to try! khrystyna was very easy to talk to and was a great helper in the fitting room especially for my first time trying on dresses. She made me feel very comfortable. Needles to say I fell in love with the first one I tried. Mira was even in the store and chatted with us for a moment. I had two more appointments and being this was my first I didn't want to cancel them because I didn't know what else might be out there. We attended the other appointments and found a dress that was a completely different style that we liked but didn't have the same reaction as the first at Mira. I decided to call Mira couture and see if they could get me in quick the following day to try on the dress once more before I left town. They got me in within the hour that I called with Khrystyna my original consultant. She again greeted me with a big smile and hug and pulled the dress once I said I had to try it once more. We got right into the fitting room and slipped right into it. I only had the mother of the groom with me this time and walked out just as excited as the first time I had it on. An emotion that I didn't have with any other dress. Need less to say I was in the store for another 45min just wearing my to be dress and chatting about all the possibilities. Mira was in house again today and came to congratulate me with a hug! There isn't enough good that I can say about this bridal shop. I felt like a princess and everyone was extremely nice. My dress was even less than my $3000 budget. The selection is everything from simple to beads from head to toe. I cannot wait to go back for my fitting!
Mira Couture gave me the best bridal experience. I live in Michigan, and couldn't find anything here. The FIRST dress I tried on at Mira was the one! They were so helpful, communicative, and kind. I loved working with Addie, she made you feel like an absolute queen. My dress fit to perfection and it was so special and unique. Mira Couture truly goes above and beyond to assure you feel beautiful on the big day, thank you for everything!!
Mira is an incredible place for finding a bridal gown and a one stop shop. Every woman that works there is so friendly and invested in finding you the gown of your dreams. They do alterations, fitting and preservation so you don't have to stress about finding other places to do that for you. Would recommend them a hundred times if I could!
This review is long overdue! I got married 1 year ago almost to the very day. Looking through our wedding photos reminded me of how special I felt on our big day, which was in large part due to Mira Couture! Working with them from start to finish was seamless. The store had such a beautiful collection of wedding dresses and I found the perfect dress for me! I worked with Julie, the owner. She was invested and went above and beyond to make sure I found exactly what I was looking for! I got married on the other side of the country and the staff at Mira Couture were available and accommodating to the needs of my out-of-state wedding. Thank you Mira Couture for such a wonderful experience!!!
Wonderful experience! I have recommended Mira Couture and Julie to all of my friends! You can feel the level of expertise Julie and her team offer immediately from talks of custom dresses to modifications to their extensive array of wedding dresses. Location, customer service, and the array of unique gowns truly set this boutique apart from other boutiques!
I didn't end up purchasing my dress at Mira, but my appointment was so wonderful that I wanted to leave a review and encourage other brides to visit this salon. I went with my mom and my aunt, and this salon tied with one other for our favorite appointment and stylist (Addie Reese - highly recommend her!). Distinguishing factors for me were: (1) all dresses are out on the floor for you to search through; (2) you can try on as many dresses as you want without feeling pressured/rushed; (3) for the most part, we had the entire salon to ourselves; (4) my appointment ran over by 30-45 minutes, and no one made a fuss about it; and (5) Addie somehow made every single dress look like it was tailored to my large bust / size 6 body - INCREDIBLE. I left my appointment strongly considering two dresses but ended up falling in love with something totally different at another salon; if it hadn't been for that dress, I would've purchased a gown here. Based on what I experienced and saw, I have no doubt that their customer service and alteration services would've been stellar from now until my wedding.
they are so nice! they let me keep my dress there after alternations were complete until 2 days before the wedding day because I didn't have enough room in my apartment for it.
I just got my dress from Mira Couture a few days ago and cannot say enough good things about this cute bridal salon!!! The staff was absolutely amazing & my consultant (Addie) really made the experience one of a kind! She was excellent, seriously LOVE HER! The dresses are beautiful & they have a very wide variety! I will definitely be recommending Mira Couture to all the future brides I know because the experience was better than I ever imagined!!
My appointment here was fine, although I felt there were not enough options. Prices are a little higher. There is not a lot of space so it felt a little cramped.
The customer service and attention to detail at Mira Couture is beyond outstanding. I went to the store with some basic ideas about what I wanted my wedding dress to look like and they helped me to find the perfect dress that exceeded my expectations. I was so excited when my dress came in and I immediately went back with my Mom to try it on. Without realizing it I had gone down 2 dress sizes. To say that they had some work to do would be an understatement, but you wouldn't have even known it! My dress came out more beautiful than I could have imagined. They worked their magic and I felt so wonderful in it on the day of my wedding. The selection and service at Mira is beyond compare. I highly recommend this salon for all Chicago brides!
I am soooo pleased with my experience at Mira. I traveled all the way from Grand Rapids, MI and was nervous I was not going to find my perfect wedding dress. The second I walked into the bridal salon, I knew it was a perfect fit. Addie was my Sales Representative and she was amazing. Anyone that comes here should definitely try to work with her. She made me feel so comfortable and made it so much fun! Not to my surprise, i found my dream dress, and it was one of the best days of my life! Thanks again, Addie! <3
This shop is the perfect place to find the wedding dress of your dreams, do not waste your time going anywhere else! They treat you like absolute royalty and are unmatched in everything they do. The taste level of the dresses are so high. The owner herself pinned my dress and it is clear how well she knows not only fashion, but tailoring as well. Even for the most organized person, planning a wedding can be completely overwhelming, do yourself a favor and make an appointment here, you will feel so happy after you leave. I knew that no matter what happened at my wedding, my dress would be gorgeous, and that feeling was priceless. They can work with any price point and any style you can imagine. I had somewhat of an idea of what I wanted, but not quite, so I just started describing it and Julie sketched my dream dress in under a minute! My mom and I were floored! It was such a highlight of my wedding experience!
Just an amazing place, my friends and family were calling it girl heaven! Julie worked with me to find my wedding dress. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for when I came in so she helped me into several different styles, and really show me what worked best for my body type. We then found an amazing dress but the best part was how they tailored every bit of it to exactly what I wanted. We completely altered the top of the dress, and it was breathtaking. It also was within our budget, making it just perfect! It was by far the hit of the wedding, people couldn't stop complimenting me. I couldn't be more grateful for all the work Mira Couture did for the most special day of my life.
Excellent staff and friendly atmosphere! They are total professionals and made the whole process so easy. I would recommend them to everyone!
Mira Couture is absolutely amazing! The dresses are gorgeous and the service was great! Julie was so patient and kind as I tried on dress after dress. I could not imagine a better experience from the moment I walked in with my mom to the last dress fitting. When you have a million things to worry about during wedding planning, it is comforting to know that the dress will be perfect! I love this place and will recommend it to future brides!
I am so grateful for the help of everyone at the bridal salon! They made the experience of getting a dress so pleasant! The girls there were honest, helpful and so friendly! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a dress! Their prices were just right and they helped put me at ease throughout the whole experience!
Mira Couture made my wedding dreams come true! They have an incredible selection of the most beautiful gowns (and mother of the bride dresses, too!), better than any other store I visited. On top of that, they have customer service above and beyond! Their alterations were excellent, as promised, and I only had 2 fittings! I have heard the nightmare stories from my friends about alterations elsewhere, so that was a big worry for me as a typical girl with some body insecurities.....but not only were my fittings perfect, they were half the cost of what my friends paid at other places to only have their dresses messed up!! Mira Couture made the wedding gown shopping and fitting process a complete pleasure from start to finish!! I wouldn't waste my time any place else! Thank you ladies!!
