Frequently Asked Questions
SHOPPING FOR A DRESS CAN BE STRESSFUL. GET ALL THE INFO YOU NEED TO MAKE THINGS AS EASY AS POSSIBLE.
If You Have Any Questions About Your Appointment Or The Dress Shopping Experience, Please Feel Free To Call The Store. We Will Do Anything We Can Give You All The Information You Need For Your Special Day.
We provide one-hour consultations at no charge which can be extended if time permits. However, if an appointment is canceled with less than 48 hours' notice there will be a $50 charge. A premier consultation is also available for a fee.
We suggest you wear a strapless bra and nude undergarments. If you have any special accessories you know you will be wearing, it’s a good idea to bring those as well. If you are getting a fitting, it's a good idea to bring the shoes you will be wearing on the big day.
Due to COVID-19 and its related restrictions, we are currently limiting the number of guests that each bride can bring to their appointment. If you are visiting our Sacramento salon you may bring up to 7 of your closest friends and/or family to help you select your wedding gown. Those visiting our Folsom salon may bring up to 7 of your closest friends and/or family members.
If you have additional people you’d like to include in your experience please feel free to include them via video chat (FaceTime, Zoom, etc.) so they don’t miss a thing! As things evolve in Sacramento County, we will continue to update our website to reflect any changes.
Finding the perfect dress is a special occasion that you will remember forever! Although we would love nothing more than to see you and your loved ones “Cheers” to finding THE dress, we are unable to permit any food or drink inside the salon at this time due to COVID-19. This is in order to ensure masks are being worn at all times to protect our guests and employees.
Because brides come in all sizes and shapes, typically alterations are needed. We take your measurements and order the size that is recommended from the designer’s size chart. When the dress arrives, we will provide you with an alterations estimate but we do not require you to use Miosa Bride for alteration services.
For the most enjoyable shopping experience, we recommend you start looking for a wedding dress at least 9-12 months before the wedding. Once ordered, wedding gowns take approximately 4 – 7 months to arrive not including shipping or any unforeseen production delays. If you have less than 6 months, we do have options that may work for you. Ask us about our In Stock Dresses, Sample Dresses, and Designers who can meet your timeline with rush fees.
Miosa has the largest selection of dresses in the Sacramento area and this allows us to carry dresses from all price ranges. Our dresses start at $900. No matter your taste, we can find a dress that fits your budget.
We do have a limited selection of sample dresses for sale.
Miosa does allow you to pay for your dress in several payments. We allow you to secure your dress with 50% down. The rest of the balance will be due when upon the arrival of the dress. You can make as many payments as you need to before receiving your dress.
Consultations to find your wedding dress are scheduled to last two hours. Please note that if you arrive more than 20 minutes late to your appointment we will have to reschedule you for another date and/or time.
