I use to drive by Miosa all the time when I was in high school and always wanted to purchase my dress from here. Once it came time to dress shop, there was no doubt in my mind that Miosa would be one of the first few shops I would go to. Daniel was my consultant and lemme tell you, he was AH-MAZING! All the dresses he pulled were beautiful and exactly what I wanted and in my price range. Daniel was awesome... he was friendly, helpful, answered all questions and made sure the train was always fanned out as I was turning on the pedestal. First dress I tried on was perfect... exactly how I envisioned my wedding dress to be with a few tweaks here and there. All my bridesmaids loved the dress and even the bridal party sitting behind us was telling me to get it! But I wanted to keep an open mind and check out other bridal shops before I made my final decision, but as I was trying on other dresses at my next appointment, I couldn't stop thinking about the dress at Miosa. In my heart I knew it was the one. I cancelled the rest of my bridal appointments, called Daniel and I was back buying my dream dress. Daniel was so sweet to stay after his last appointment to help me with the purchase.The only thing I was sad about, was I didn't get my, "are you saying yes to the dress?" moment, but that was completely my fault for trying to explore other options.Another great thing about Miosa is that they have in house seamstresses, I will make a few alterations to my dress. Showed Daniel a picture of a dress I found on Pinterest and fell in love with and he said they can make it exactly the same way I envisioned it. My dream is purchasing a dress from Miosa finally came true! Thank you, Miosa, you have made my dream wedding even more perfect with the most beautiful dress I've ever seen. :)
Good Morning, My name is Kimberly. I was wedding dress shopping on 4/8/15 and found the perfect dress after only 10 dresses. I just wanted to say Thank you so much to Annie. Not only did she put me in all different types of dresses, she also tolerated my family (which can be a chore). Annie took her time, was extremely patient, kind, and I want to say that when I picked the final dress she actually jumped and clapped for me. Thank you Annie for everything that you did for us yesterday. All of the employees at Miosa are extremely caring and it really feels as if they truly enjoy their job. Annie made this process so easy for me. I came in not expecting anything. I did not have any clue as to the type of dress that I wanted. I went into the salon figuring I would not find the dress. I was preparing myself to look for possibly a month or so. WOW ANNIE - JUST THANK YOU SO MUCH. I think that our appointment even went over the hour and a half allotted time. I can not wait to come back and see everybody at Miosa again, especially Annie. My family and friends said that Annie was amazing. She complimented me and made me feel as though I was the only future bride in the salon. She was so caring about me that it felt as though she had been a friend of mine for years. I felt as if I was with family. Heck I didn't even care that she saw me partially naked and for me that is a huge deal. I just can't not thank Annie enough. I can't wait until the dress fitting in a few months. I will also be referring my family and friends to Miosa if they need a bridal gown or a dress for a wedding. This place felt like home. THANK YOU ANNIE.
I found my wedding dress at Miosa last month. Rachel was so helpful and understood just what I was looking for. I tried on several dresses but just couldn't find "the one". She listened to I what I liked and what I didn't like about each dress. Shortly after I left the store and was trying on dresses at another shop, Rachel called me saying that FedEx just delivered a dress that she thought I would love. I went back to Miosa to try it on, and sure enough that was "the one"!I finally got my wedding pictures from our photographer and wanted to share them! I had nothing but a great experience at Miosa at all my appointments...everyone was amazing. Rachel helped me find my dress, Susan and Michael helped me with my first fitting, and Sue and Sabrina saved me the week of my wedding! After my first alteration, I didn't realize that it mattered if I walked down the aisle on carpet or hard floor. When I tried my dress on at the shop, it was perfect. Weeks went by and I then I finally practiced walking in my dress at my apartment which is carpeted. I started panicking because my dress was dragging on the carpet, I was tripping over it, and my wedding was that following weekend! Miosa was so accommodating and I was able to get an appointment the next day with Sue. Sabrina in alterations was able to identify the problem and recommended that she take the dress in more to lift it up rather than shortening the hem. They also recommended the hoop skirt for me which helped raise the dress and made it easier for me to walk. Thanks, Miosa!
Every visit I've had to Miosa Bride has been exceptional, even when obstacles presented themselves. When I first got engaged, I visited 4 different bridal stores before eventually finding THE dress at Miosa's. Their gowns are absolutely gorgeous, the consultants are so knowledgeable, and my engaged best friend also ended up ordering her dress from here. When my dress came in, I had a lot of fun at my first fitting. Sue, the seamstress, is extremely talented! However, a consultant (who was later fired for other immoral behavior) tricked me into hemming my dress before I had my wedding shoes with the promise I wouldn't get double-charged for any further alterations down the road. My gut was telling me to wait, but this lady was very convincing. So fast-forward a couple months to my second fitting this past weekend... the dress was PERFECT but of course it needed another hem. I was shocked when I was told there would be another charge, and my new consultant seemed very confused by the information I was originally given. After a conversation with the manager (nearly in tears), they explained their policy but ended up being willing to fix the hem for me. I felt so terrible for wasting their time, but so grateful that they believed me and were willing to work with me through this awkward situation. Everyone at Miosa's is so kind and genuinely cares about helping to make your wedding day perfect. I can't wait to pick up my dress soon! I recommend Miosa Bride to every engaged woman I know.
"Soon after I got engaged I started the hunt for the ""perfect"" dress. I tried on everything from lace to tulle, strapless to halter and most everything between. I used to work near Miosa and recalled seeing a dress I loved in the window. I made a phone call to the owner and set up an appointment. I flew from Southern California Mother's Day Weekend 2011 with my fingers crossed that my hunt would be over. When I showed up at the salon with my herd of guests (mom, two sisters, best friend, her mom and my godmother) they were more than welcoming. I briefly described the gown I had seen years back and in 30 mins they had it out for me, they had to go down to the storage area to get it! It was everything I remembered and more. I put it on and my mom cried. I knew that was my dress. Being that I live 400 miles away, we have been communicating via email and phone and I have had the best experience. At my first re-measure I made some adjustments to the gown and added some custom beading. I cannot wait to wear this dress on my wedding day. It is more than I could have ever dreamed of.Thank you Michael and the staff at Miosa for all you have done and the beautiful work you create!"""
I originally went to Miosa for a trunk show showcasing Jim Hjelm's wedding gowns. I was thrown off because I was certain that I would fall in love with one of his dresses, but I ended up falling in love with a dress that was completely different than what I had expected. My consultant, Brooke, was fantastic! She was not pushy and did not make me feel rushed at all. I ended up not purchasing the gown on my first visit because I just had to sleep on it. Brooke did not mind at all! I returned the next week and said yes to the dress. Everyone there seems to know what dress you would look best in and, if you have an open mind and are willing to try on styles that were different than what you first imagined, you'll most likely find the dress of your dreams. The consultants here do not work on commission. At your request, they can help you into the dresses in the fitting room or they can give you the final zip/clamp up once you've gotten yourself into the dress. FYI, they can make custom dresses/accessories for you as well. The owners are definitely talented. Hands down, this is the best experience that I have ever had trying on dresses. I didn't think it would be this easy!
Gosh where do I start?! Brittany from Miosa was my bridal consultant was nothing short of amazing! All of the dresses were insanely beautiful and so different than any other place I have seen, but what made it great and special was how Brittany paid such detailed attention to the things I loved and the things I did not. While my family focused on the dresses- Brittany focused on me. She read my face and saw my reactions, she heard my thoughts while helping me hop into each dress. Brittany made sure she pulled everything I hinted that I liked about dresses and presented perfect options to me- I literally loved the dresses she was choosing and her and I were the FIRST to know the dress I chose was mine- she just paid so much attention that she knew when my heart had shifted and I knew with all of me, that was the one! Thank you Miosa for helping us create a stress free- fun and exciting special day! Brittany your service felt More like dress fitting with a close and dear friend, I am so grateful! As we closed she was thorough with payments and all that fun stuff and was so patient with me and my huge gang of family. Thank you Miosa!
I began dress shopping and hoped to get it all done in one day. I started here and went to a few other shops to make sure I saw everything I could. The third shop I went to was an absolutely terrible experience I had given up and didn't want to shop ever again! My mom convinced me to go back to Miosa and try on the dress I loved again. I call Miosa an hour before they close on a Saturday and they are completely booked, they said "of course we want you to come back in and try on your dress. It may take a minute but we will get you with someone tonight." There I was back in the store. They got me right in and put me in the dress I fell in love with. 30 seconds in the dress again and it was perfect! Brittany was amazing and so sweet and helpful in ordering and getting me dressed and looking fabulous. She picked the dress I bought as my first dress on my first try. That sounds crazy but it worked! I can't thank Brittany enough for everything she did for me and how sweet and amazing she was. Everything about this store was amazing. The selection was endless and the staff was oh so accommodating.
I went in for my first appointment 6 months prior to my wedding. Making an appointment was easy and when I showed up with mom, future mother in law, sister, and niece we were warmly welcomed and quickly taken to the fitting area. I wish I remembered the name of the girl who helped me out. She was friendly, asked questions about what I was looking for and she was on her way to find my perfect dress. I went with the 3rd dress I tried on and I was on my way. The dress came in earlier than expected, about 5 weeks prior to the wedding and they quickly scheduled me for a fitting. The fitting was a breeze, and Sue, their tailor, was so nice and easy to work with. She told me what changes she recommended and told me it'd be done in 2 weeks. I went in for my 2nd dress fitting today and it fit perfectly and was able to take it home with me.I had a great experience here. They have a large selection of dresses, they are very knowledgable, friendly and not at all pushy. I'd highly recommend this bridal shop to anyone looking for the perfect wedding dress!
I used to live in downtown Sacramento ...not that far from their boutique and when I would pass by them I used to say to myself that one day I hope to go in there and try on and purchase a beautiful dress from there. Well one day I did. when I walk in I already knew that my dream dress was there. It is the same feeling I got when I met my forever love. They listen to my ideas and added a few of their own, and they also took into consideration my price range. The ladies there were amazing and so helpful and made each detail perfect right down to the seamstress she to know exactly how I wanted my dress to fit. The dress I found was that of timeless beauty a dress that I hope one day I will see my daughter wear.I just want to say "Thank You" so very much. You made my special day that much more special. The dress was amazing and everyone loved it. I have had some of my friends ask me about you and I tell them this is the place to go for a dress, they are the best.
