Mia Celebrates the Anniversary of Jessica and Bojan!

If we had to dream up the ultimate elegant wedding, Jessica and Bojan's would have to be it. And with event extraordinaries, Two Be Wed, behind you, it's guaranteed to be a beautiful affair.

The couple exchanged vows at the beautiful First Methodist Houston Downtown. Jessica exuded grace in a taffeta, a-line gown by Austin Scarlett. Her accessories included a crystal belt by Rivini and a double horsehair veil that framed her silhouette perfectly.

Guests then moved to the Petroleum Club where they dined and danced the night away alongside Houston's beautiful skyline.

"Bojan has always liked skylines and cityscapes so being in downtown Houston atop a 43-story building was the perfect setting for our special day, " says Jessica. And what a special day it was!

Plus Size Gowns at Mia Bridal Couture

Our mission at Mia Bridal Couture is to find the perfect gown for our brides. Gowns that make them feel beautiful, comfortable and confident.

We praise women of all shapes and sizes. Since we can't carry a full size run of each gown, we have to choose gown sizes strategically to make sure a wide range of brides can get a good idea of what the gown will look like in their size. But of course, we understand it's not always easy. So to alleviate the issue of sizes, we are happy to say we are adding extra sizes to some of our favorite gowns!

Here are few gowns we have in our store and a few gowns we'll be adding to the collection in sizes 14-20.

Together. Forever.: Martina Liana Bridal Separates

One thing we can't stop obsessing over at Mia is Martina Liana's bridal separates line, Together. Forever. This line is unlike any other. The concept behind Together. Forever. is for the bride to be able to create her dream gown by mixing and matching bridal separates. Many other designers have included separates in their collections before; however, Together. Forever. is unique in that it is presented as an entire collection. With it being a dedicated collection and not a handful of pieces, it ensures that you, the bride, will have a wide variety of pieces that allows you to curate your own look. So whether you're the sexy, boho, elegant, destination, or traditional bride, these separates will have the perfect combination for your bridal vision. 

With so many pieces to choose from, it's a perfect way to create different looks for your wedding day. Imagine a fabulous beaded top with a fitted crepe skirt for your walk down the aisle then changing into a fun tea-length skirt with the same fabulous beaded top for the reception!  Not to mention, these pieces are re-wearable so a great reception piece can be worn again for the honeymoon.

Mia Celebrates the Anniversary of Courtney and Chase!

A couple that has fun together, stays together! After going through these photos from Jonathan Ivy Photography, we can see that this is definitely the case for Courtney and Chase. Every picture just exudes happiness, and the smiles are contagious.

Courtney walked down the aisle in an Alyne by Rita Vinieris mikado, modified a-line gown. Bridal buttons trickled down the back of the gown, starting at the top of the bodice to the end of the train. Her simple, cathedral length veil was the ideal compliment to let the gown shine. Courtney added a Blossoms Swarovski belt for the perfect hint of sparkle.

The couple said "I Do!" at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockport, TX, and The Matchmaker Band kept everyone dancing all night at the Rockport Country Club for their reception.

During the night, Courtney changed into a custom reception gown that she created herself. The strapless, crystal and tulle short dress was simply perfection!

Happy Anniversary to Courtney and Chase! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. May your many years ahead be filled with everlasting joy.

Designer Spotlight: Atelier Pronovias

We don't like to pick favorites at Mia Bridal Couture, but it's hard not to give Pronovias the credit it deserves this season. Every gown that walked down the runway was absolutely jaw-dropping. From the mixtures of laces, to the sparkle, to the extravagant trains... I'm not sure any of us took a breath during the entire show. With over 50 years of experience behind the company, it's not surprising that Pronovias's craftsmanship sets itself apart.  Here, we want to give our faithful readers a little background behind the Spanish company. Also, scroll to the end to see their recent fashion show!


The Pronovias company presented its first prêt-à-porter bridal collection in 1964, thus taking an important step that would propel the company into the 21st century by combining the bridal and prêt-à-porter concepts in a single, innovative project. Years later, in 1968, Pronovias opened its first specialist bridal store in Spain, a single location where brides could find the dresses and all the accessories they needed. The following decade saw Pronovias open 80 more shops in Spain and the start of its international expansion in Europe. It entered the American and Asian markets in the 1990s. It now has more than 3.800 sales points in 75 countries all around the world.

The company's in-depth experience filters through to all its decisions, a tradition that has from its origins in "El Suizo", an establishment that opened in 1922 in Barcelona specializing in lace, silk and embroidery for brides. This savoir faire is the result of the almost 100 years during which the family has been specializing in satisfying brides and making their dreams come true. A spirit that has lasted through the years, surviving changes and fashions in the manner of a real house style.

Mia Celebrates the Anniversary of Katie and Phil!

Can you imagine something as simple as wishing a former love "Merry Christmas" would bring you two back together? Well, that's the beautiful story of Katie and Phil. The two met at Vanderbilt University and although they moved on to successful careers and different lives, destiny wouldn't keep them apart. After that not-so-simple "Merry Christmas," the couple had been inseparable. On May 5, 2013, Phil proposed to Katie in Prague.

Katie and Phil said "I do" at St. Paul's Methodist Church and guests were able to show off their dance moves to a live band at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice Hotel.

At Mia Bridal Couture, we feel so honored to be apart of such a special day in our brides' lives. Happy Anniversary to Katie and Phil!
