FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions to help prepare you for your experience and expectations at Mimi's Bridal.

DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?

Yes! We do require scheduling an appointment for bridal and bridesmaids. At Mimi's Bridal we set ourselves apart by quality, not quantity, and therefore our Bridal Boutique has a limited number of dressing rooms. When you schedule an appointment you will have a private fitting room and personal bridal stylist reserved just for you to make sure you recieve the Mimi's Experience! Weekend appointments, especially, tend to book up in advance. Be sure to book early to get the date and time you want. Appointments are alloted for 90 minutes.
We do NOT require appointments for Prom or Homecoming.
Mimi's offers a variety of appointments, you can learn more and request an appointment here:

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BE LOOKING?

We recommend ordering your wedding dress anywhere from 10-12 months before your wedding date. This leaves time for any alterations needed or customizing.​​
Don't be discouraged if you don't have that much time! There are rush fees that can be added to your dress for it to be delivered faster and we also sell wedding dresses directly off the showroom floor. 
 
For bridesmaids we reccomend 5-6 months before your wedding date to allow sufficient time for them to arrive and have alterations completed. 

HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOULD I BRING TO MY BRIDAL APPOINTMENT?

We recommend bringing your closest, most trusted group of people. Our boutique can comfortably fit 4-6 guests. We do advise to keep this a tight knit group of people, we find that this helps you not to feel overwhelmed, but supported in your decision. No matter who you choose to bring or how many people remember this is your wedding day and your  opinion is our number one priority.

​Although we love children, a bridal boutique is not a fun or safe place for kids. We have countless mirrors and there could be loose pins or beads on the floors. If you do bring a child they must be supervised by an adult at all times and are not allowed access to certain areas of the store.    

WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE OF YOUR DRESSES AND DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT
OPTIONS?

Our bridal gowns range in price from $900 to $2800 with the average gown costing $1200-1500. We do offer a payment plan of a half down deposit initially on your dress with payments from there.  
​We accept cash, mastercard, visa, and discover. No checks.  ​​
We advise you to set a budget for your gown before your appointment so we can find a gown both beautiful and affordable for you. 
Two times a year we will have a sample sale on our gowns that range from $99 and up. To stay up to date with sales and other events you can visit our event page.

WHAT SHOULD I  WEAR TO MY BRIDAL APPOINTMENT?

We ask that our brides wear appropriate undergarments when trying on wedding gowns.

DO YOU PROVIDE ALTERATIONS IN YOUR BOUTIQUE?

​​We do not have a seamstress on staff at our Boutique. We have compiled a list of reputable, independent seamstresses that will be able to tailor your dress needs to give you your perfect fit. We recommend calling a few seamstresses to check price points and to make sure your personalities and schedules match up. Once you have selected your seamstress, you should also call and schedule a fitting with them. Alterations are not included in the price of your gown.  
 
 

DO YOU OFFER PLUS SIZE DRESSES?

Our bridal gown collection ranges in size from 4-30. All of our gowns can be ordered in sizes ranging from 0-32W.

DO YOU PRESERVE OR CLEAN WEDDING DRESSES ONCE THE WEDDING TAKES PLACE?

Yes, we do offer wedding gown preservation to clean and preserve your wedding dress after the wedding. You can add up to 3 additioinal pieces along with your gown, such as; veil, garter, belt, headpiece, etc. This preservation is guaranteed up to 100 years.
