Begin Early

It’s never too early to start finding your perfect dress. At Occasions by Miosa, we understand the level of patience and consideration this process involves, and the last thing you want is to feel rushed or lukewarm about the gown you select. We recommend starting your search months prior to the ceremony, and leaving more than enough time for any last-minute alterations.

While your personal preferences should take center stage in your shopping journey, the ceremony’s setting can help determine many aspects of your dress, as well. For weddings in colder climates or with particularly fancy dress codes, you may want to focus on elegant, high-coverage designs, such as floor-length skirts or long sleeves. For destination weddings or outdoorsy occasions, lightweight fabrics and casual designs may offer more of what you’re after.


As a final note, each wedding comes with its own set of expectations. Tradition calls for avoiding distracting colors, bridal party colors, and of course, avoiding bridal white. However, to reiterate: each wedding comes with its own set of expectations. If you are ever unsure about your look, call on the bride and groom for advice! The lovebirds are sure to be grateful for the opportunity to help you feel your best on their special day.
