Fall 2014 Sample Sale



Sample Sale Tips

How the sale works:

Upon entering the salon, we will ask you to sign in for a try-on time.  Each Bride will be given 30 minutes to try-on dresses, allowing no more than 3 dresses in the room at a time.  You will have a consultant to assist you with selecting gowns, trying-on, etc. but please remember, this is a fast-paced event so appointments will not be as personalized as a typical day.

Here's a few important points to note:

1) Sample sales are cash & carry events, your gown MUST be paid for in full the day of the event for the discounts to apply! (We accept Visa, Discover, Mastercard, Cash, or Check).

2) We do not recommend attending the sample sale as your first try-on experience.  Brides who have tried on before & have a good idea of the style they want will have an easier time finding the perfect dress at this event!

3) Since sample sales are standing room only events, we do not recommend bringing a large group along.  Try to limit guests to no more than 2-3 people.

4) Sizing is key to finding the perfect gown.  Wedding gowns tend to run small, so we recommend looking at gowns 1-2 sizes larger than you would typically wear.  (If you were an 8, shop size 10 & 12).

5) There will be sample jewelry, veils, headpieces, bridal belts, and other accessories available. (Please note that we will not have any bridesmaid or mother's gowns in the sale, and tuxedo/suit rentals are also not included.)

Fall 2014 Bridal Trends

As our new Fall Stock continues to arrive in the salon daily, we are seeing some beautiful new trends emerging this season!  From Bridal Gowns to Color Palettes, here's a little hint of this seasons most wanted looks:

Bringing Sexy Backs Back!
This season, it's all about dramatic back details.  Gowns with beaded illusion backs, keyhole openings, tattoo lace, and low plunging backs are a great way to make a bold statement!  Here's a couple of our favorites:
From left to right: #2679 by Mori Lee, #2146 by Casablanca, and "Melanie" by Maggie Sottero
 Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeves
Capsleeves, flutter, 3/4 length, and full length....all straps & sleeves are here to stay!  Already have your dream gown but it's strapless? Bridal jackets are also a great way to incorporate the trend into your wedding day look!
From left to right: "Anastasia" by Sottero & Midgley, #1420 by Bonny Unforgettable, #2379J by Alfred Angelo (jacket is available by itself or with gown as shown!)

True Colors
As we move into the fall season, we are seeing a variety of beautiful color schemes both bright and subtle.  Through-out the Spring & Summer seasons, shades of Mint and Coral were everywhere, and they are carrying into Fall as well!  Simply pair these bold shades with a dark neutral such as Charcoal, Navy, or Mocha.  Blush also transitions well into fall when paired with varying shades of gold and other warm colors!

Brides Beware! You get what you pay for!

Mia's Bridal & Tailoring is a licensed salon with established relationships with all of our designers.  If you order a wedding gown here; you will receive a beautiful, quality designer gown you can be proud of!  Nothing breaks our hearts more than seeing a bride or prom-goer who has been taken advantage of by ordering online.  Recently, we've found a great Facebook page, International Ownership, who is advocating against counterfeit & knock-off gowns, and we want to share a few of our tips with you for red flags when online shopping.
Here's an example of a knock-off gown: the original on the left is by Mori Lee #1612, the reproduction on the right is a counterfeit gown.  You can clearly see the difference in silhouette, fit, and materials on the gown.

Another common trick of counterfeiters: on the left is the original image of Maggie Sottero's "Meredith Rose" from the Sottero & Midgley collection.  On the right, you see the same image, with a different model's head & a solid background photoshopped in.  The problem? Not only is this theft of the designers original image, but you really have no idea what the gown they produce will look like!

Our final piece of advice is when in doubt, just remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for!"  If a gown seems to good to be true (a $1500 dress online for only $150?!), it probably is!
