Kristen and Tyler were married August 26, 2017. She is absolutely stunning in her low-back sheath beaded lace gown.  We love how Lucy Munoz Photography captured her beauty and their day.  

Kristen, in marketing as a Social Media Influencer, Tyler, now a Personal Trainer and Physical Therapy Aid, chose to keep their ceremony and reception close to home. Their source of inspiration came from their hometown church in Patterson, CA.

Their reception was held at The Century in downtown Modesto, just around the corner from Mira Bridal Couture.

As seen in Bridal Couture Magazine

We are thrilled to see one of our brides featured in the most recent issue of Bridal Couture Magazine. Jessica and Thomas were married last June. 

A cathedral in the forest created by Redwoods, and a glowing canopy of strung lights, allowed the couple to create a romantic backdrop for their closest friends and family to celebrate.

  “Thomas and I agreed from the beginning that this was our day,” explains Jessica. “We didn’t want high expectations to interrupt our joy and excitement surrounding our wedding.” 

“Thomas and I agreed from the beginning that this was our day,” explains Jessica. “We didn’t want high expectations to interrupt our joy and excitement surrounding our wedding.” 


Jessica wore our Elise gown in ivory. Exquisitely crafted with all-over Cybele lace, this stunning wedding dress offers glamour and romance in equal measure. A deep neckline with illusion tulle showcases your curves. Narrow, beaded straps give you all the glamour of a strapless gown with the effortless, all-night wearabilty of straps. Delicate lace falls over tulle and stretch poly-charmeuse for a show-stopping effect. In the back, we love the way the silhouette curves before flowing out into an elegant chapel train. To the bride who loves fine-point lace, we think we’ve found your match. Available beaded or unbeaded. Sizes 00-32.

Congratulations Jessica and Thomas.

Wedding: How to select the perfect bridesmaid dress with Watters

We love our new Watters social collections. They are perfect for Spring and Summer cocktail parties, prom, formal events, and of course weddings. Tanya posted a great blog for those of you getting ready to come shop with us for your bridesmaids. Booking your appointment is easy. Give us a call at 209.338.9333 or book through our website.



I’m back with another installment in the WEDDING series. It was very important to Taylor from the very beginning to make her bridesmaids and house party dresses special. As she says, the wedding day is about everyone feeling good and looking great in what they wear. We’re partnering with Watters to show you how to pick the perfect Bridesmaid Dress.


Remember how I said there are certain things you focus on when planning a wedding in my first installment? The bridesmaid dress is something Taylor started talking about from the moment she got engaged. Maybe it’s because she has been a bridesmaid several times before and knows the process. Fortunately for us, Watters is partnering with us for this story and we are thrilled to work with them!


While working with Watters on the selection of the dresses, we discovered that these 5 guidelines really help:

  • Plan in advance – Most retailers will tell you that 4 months is optimal
  • Be conscious of costs involved – Typically the bridesmaid pays for her entire ensemble (dress, shoes, accessories). This can add up quickly!
  • Consider all sizes and life stages of your bridesmaids – People come in many shapes and sizes. Be mindful of this and make sure that the style will work for everyone. An option is to use several styles and let your bridesmaids choose the one they are most comfortable with.
  • When choosing colors and styles think about how they will photograph – This is really important! Your wedding day memories will be captured by a photographer and videographer and those will be your lasting images for a lifetime. Does the color photograph well? Are there any wardrobe issues with the style you chose? Resolve all of this when selecting the dresses
  • Make sure the dress compliments the bride – A friend of mine once told me that the color of the bridesmaids dress should look good on the bride. Makes sense – they are all surrounding her in the pictures. A trick to help with this is have the bride try on the bridesmaids dresses too. Does the color look good on the bride?

While we are focused on bridesmaid dresses, I would be leaving out a huge part of the story if I didn’t tell you about their gorgeous collection of bridal dresses. When I say there is something for everyone, I’m not kidding. Be sure to peruse their beautiful collection hereWatters dresses can be found at all the best wedding boutiques across the country. For a listing of shops near you click here.

I can’t give away what we selected but I can assure you we have ordered the dresses and can’t wait for you to see them. There will be a final WEDDING blog post in the summer recapping all of our selections. Any guesses? A HUGE thank you to Sarah Kate and Camille for joining us so that we could see the dresses on them. This was so helpful in Taylor making her final decision.

xoxo – Tanya

P.S. We were thrilled that Xay Vongphachanh, Creative Director for Watters stepped in to our meeting and explained the design process to us. Bonus!

Styled Shoot with Tailor Made Events


The Perfect Blend.

Styled shoot designed by Tailor Made Events inspired by a real couple with a coffee lover spirit combined with the simple elegance of different metals; pewter and copper inspiration.  

It started very sweet, like two teaspoons of sugar sweet. Caleb  proposed to his girl Ellarose at the local Preservation Café.


There are a ton of great details, but some of which have fancy textures between the invitation paper and place cards handmade by Farmette Press to the scroll backdrop created by Holly Anna Calligraphy.  


The layered marble stunning and elegant cake by Sweet on the Inside. Even the small details matter, Celebration Party Rentals with their stunning sweet heart table with refurbished wood and metal and the Tuscan chairs made everything tie together.


Floral designer Blooms created a blushing bridal bouquet and centerpiece inspired by dusty blue and mustard tones that complimented the gorgeous brick on the wall of The Century in Downtown Modesto. Where the Venues lighting and design is just stunning.

"The shoot was inspired by the love of coffee, simplicity and true love shining through – the bride’s beautiful laced gown from Mira Bridal Couture was the perfect vintage look, while the groom wore a tux from Vito’s Tuxedo looking sharp and so in love with his Mrs," explains Marie with Tailor Made Events. "Every styling decision was based on coffee itself, with unexpected details: from the coffee and treat table with lovely cookies by Por Vida Cookies to the mid-century modern Espresso Bar setup by Wave Coffee Co.!" 

"The bride and grooms drive off into the sunset would have made you week in the knees, with the top down of a 1955 Convertible Thunderbird, owned by Don and Jane Wigle who are apart of Modesto Area Classic Thunderbird Club. Overall concept and design created by Tailor Made Events with the help of our friend Holly Anna Calligraphy."

The Best Way to Buy Your Wedding Dress


For many brides, one of the first (and most exciting!) wedding tasks they want to tackle is finding the dress. It's a magical moment and it's tempting to jump right in! We totally get it. But with so many shopping options, even figuring out where to buy wedding dresses can get overwhelming. Before you decide where to buy your gown, there are two key things to consider:

1. Your Budget. Once you know you've got, say, $2,000 to spend, you can figure out which stores carry gowns at that price point.

2. Your Venue. No matter how gorgeous the dress, what works at one venue won't necessarily work at another. A goddess dress on a sunny Cali beach? Perfection. A cleavage-flaunting fit-and flare in a Baptist church? Not so much.

Now that that's out of the way, it's a question of shopping style. Figuring out the best places to buy wedding dresses depends on how you like to shop. For some brides, online is the way to go, while most want the traditional experience of a bridal salon. 

At Mira Bridal Couture, we pride ourselves on being friendly and helpful with all of our brides, no matter how small their needs might be. There are no secrets here, just open, honest and caring professionals wanting to help you in any way possible. Come by and feel what the best service in the industry is like. You won’t be disappointed!

At Mira Bridal Couture, we think finding the perfect dress should be a warm and cozy experience. We want you to kick off your heels and stay awhile.  We’ve done our job if you leave our boutique feeling like you just met some great new friends, and found the perfect dress along the way.  We realize your dress is not the only part of your wedding, so although our gowns range from $900-$4,000, we do our best to keep our average price around $1,500.
