In December 2018, Julia and her mother came in hoping to find the perfect gown for Julia’s wedding. Cristy showed her an all over lace fit & flare with a modified sweetheart neckline and stunning keyhole back. It was the one!

Julia recently graduated from California State University Chico with a Masters of Arts in Education. Kyle serves as 1st Lieutenant with the United States Air Force and is preparing to graduate from his training in Phoenix, Arizona. After Kyle’s graduation in December the couple will be moving where Kyle will be an F-16 Pilot with The 180th Wing in Toledo, Ohio. Julia will continue her career as a Junior High and High School English Teacher.

Let Love Bloom

With each new season brings a sense of change, renewal, and excitement for things to come … and the future is in full bloom with this beautiful new collection from Essense of Australia! Floral laces grow fuller, shimmering beadwork is elevated and simple silhouettes get a clean, modern update for a fresh look that will have brides seizing the days ahead.

Wildflower Inspiration: Large, abundant blooms in graphic laces and 3D florals take precedence in this season’s collection. Artfully placed along the body and over illusion tulle, these laces flatter the figure and create stunning floating lace effects that today’s bohemian bride will love. Also featured in elaborately shaped trains, these natural florals make a grand statement with a sense of refined elegance.  

Gossamer Details: As sheerness continues to trend in bridal, this collection offers a variety of figure-flattering cutouts around the waist and hips that offer a sense of dreamlike beauty and bridal magic. Delicately layered with traditional laces, these ethereal details offer a touch of updated sensuality for the ultra-romantic bride.

Shimmering Silhouettes: Fit-and-flare gowns are making an elevated style statement in this collection with dazzling mixed beadwork and shimmer fabrics. Layered with French tulle, these full, frothy skirts are illuminated in a natural sheen for the glamour-seeking bride.

Modern Simplicity: Clean, off-shoulder details and classic V-necklines with open backs pair with voluminous skirts of crepe and organza, while fabric-covered buttons cascade down the backs of full trains for the simple yet utterly timeless look for the modern, royally-inspired bride.

What an exciting weekend at Mira's!

We have finished off September with some amazing brides and just could not wait to share them with you!

Our Top Tips for Wedding Dress Alterations and Fittings

Congrats! You’ve found your dream wedding dress, but that doesn’t mean the process is over just yet—you’ve got to get that gorgeous gown fitted perfectly to you and your shape. Whether your wedding dress needs just a simple hemming, a bustle added, or a whole restructuring, we’ve got the expert tips for wedding dress alterations that you need to know. Not sure what these tips entail or what exactly your wedding dress fitting timeline should be? Don’t fret! We’re answering all your burning questions with our own tips for wedding dress alterations, plus the wedding dress fitting etiquette you need to know.


1. Yes, your gown needs to be fitted

Wedding dresses aren’t typically made-to-measure, so very rarely does a bride’s size match a designer’s size perfectly. After you select your dream wedding dress, the bridal salon compares your measurements to the designer’s size chart and orders the closest size of gown. Once it arrives, the dress must then be tailored precisely to fit your shape and form.

2. Schedule not just one, but three dress fittings

Bridal salons usually recommend that brides have three wedding dress fittings. Schedule your first fitting to take place two to three months before your wedding day, the second fitting about a month before your wedding, and your final fitting at the two-week mark. Typically, your gown goes home with you at the final fitting—hooray!

3. Bring the right bridal accessories

For your first fitting, bring the shoes and undergarments you plan to wear on your wedding day, as these can greatly impact the fit of your gown. Donning a pair of sky-high Badgley Mischka stilettos will require your wedding dress to be a different length than if you opted for a pair of sparkly Kate Spade bridal sneakers. Another pro tip for wedding dress alterations? To ensure your dress is tailored to the exact fit you want while walking down the aisle, wear any and all shapewear or undergarments you plan to sport on the big day itself.

4. Don’t freak out if your dress doesn’t fit right away

During your first fitting you get to try on your actual wedding dress for the first time (woo hoo!). But be prepared—it probably won’t fit. Be direct with your seamstress about how you envision your dress looking and feeling, and if there are any significant changes you want to make, such as adding illusion lace sleeves or altering the neckline. Also, don’t be afraid to ask your seamstress questions. One of our major tips for wedding dress alterations is to be open and honest about what you want in your bridal look.

5. Speak up if it still doesn’t fit right at the second fitting

Your seamstress will do everything in her power to make sure your dress fits, so speak up if something doesn’t feel right. Being vocal will help you avoid having to book more fittings, which will ultimately allow you to stick to that wedding dress fitting timeline.

6. Be selective when choosing your entourage

7. It’s proper wedding dress fitting etiquette to bring only one or two close friends or family members to get a second opinion. But just like dress shopping, don’t bring too many people—all those opinions will stress you out and make the tailor’s job that much more difficult. At the last fitting, bring your mom or maid of honor to get a tutorial in bustling your gown—they’ll need to handle this important task on your wedding day.

We’ve worked with some very talented seamstresses over the years. Arte at Sewing & More has been an amazing partner in helping our brides look their best for their wedding days. She is located in Roseburg Square, just a mile up the road from us. When you are ready to book your alterations appointment you can call her at 209-523-7189. Her hours of operation are Tuesday - Friday 12-5 and Saturday 11-3.

If you are unable to book your fitting with Arte, we also suggest Isabel at Creative Stitches. She is located on the corner of Sylvan and Oakdale Road. You can book with her at (209) 551-4315.
