My daughter was married in 2014 and she shopped every bridal shop from Gulfport to Mobile looking for the perfect dress. I finally talked her into driving to Mimi's in Laurel where she found the perfect dress. I just had another daughter get married and we went straight to Mimi's. She found more than one perfect dress there and couldn't make up her mind. Everyone was so patient with her while she tried both of them on at least three times. The girls were so nice in assisting her and letting her take her time in deciding which one was 'her dress'. They understood the importance of making the right decision. We finally went home with the perfect dress and she received so many compliments on how beautiful she looked in her Allure wedding gown.

While I have bought a few pageant dresses from Mimi's before, since we live out of town, we decided to try wedding dress shopping closer to home. What we found was that the drive was WELL WORTH IT!

We went to a bridal shop in Mobile, AL. I found THE dress and was to the point of handing the lady my credit card. However, when she told me the minimum charge for alterations would be $399, I saw that as a major red flag. My mom and I immediately decided we'd would "think" on it and call the girl on Monday.

We went to discuss over lunch. Because I have always been beyond impressed with Mimi's, we decided to give them a call. It turns out, we could get the same dress for about $200 cheaper and the alterations started at... drum roll, please... $40. HELLO! Obvious choice.

Before purchasing my dress, I did go up one Saturday and make sure that I had made the right decision. Elizabeth was more than helpful in helping me choose dresses that not only did I love but that were also flattering for my figure.

The fact that their seamstress has been there close to 40 years is not a bad thing either.

I would recommend Mimi's Bridal and Formal Wear over any other shop any day!

Our consultant, Jill Richards, welcomed my mother and I with open arms and southern hospitality. She had patience and took the time to not only to find the perfect dress but to play dress up as well. We never felt pressured to hurry up or buy a dress we weren't happy with. I ended up loving a dress that was completely different than the idea I had originally went in with so we took a few snapshots to remind myself and decided to try out a few other chain dress shops. It only cemented my view on the dress and I called Jill the next week to buy the dress. In the same day my mother also found the perfect dress and we never had a moments regret. If we did, I'm sure Jill and the rest of the Mimi's crew would help us out. It was well worth the drive to Laurel from Biloxi!

I didn't have a dream dress picked out before I went bridal gown shopping, but I found the perfect dress for me at Mimi's! The service and alterations were wonderful, and I never had a worry about my dress in their hands. The only downside is that I did have trouble finding a selection of dresses in my particular size. Overall, however, I was very pleased with my experience at Mimi's!

I am sorry you were not able to find what you were looking for. Our website does show every dress that all of our designers have. We have approximately 1000 dresses in the store. Even with that, we are not able to have every dress made by every designer that we carry. I hope you found the dress you were looking for and that your wedding was beautiful!

I purchased a beautiful Allure bridal gown, along with 7 bridesmaid gowns, from Mimi's in June 2012 for my February 2013 wedding. The selection and quality of dresses they carry there are wonderful. The dress consultants were very pleasant and helpful. The only complaint/advice I have from my experience at Mimi's is to NOT use their alterations lady. TWO weeks after my first fitting I went to try the altered dress on. IT WOULD NOT ZIP. Turns out, the alteration lady took 2 inches off of the side seams of the dress instead of taking up the bust area. She then told me "You must have gained a little weight." I was furious.
This was not the last problem I, or my bridesmaids, had with the alterations department at Mimi's. Thankfully, after a couple tries, they finally got it right a week before my wedding. However, they did not give me a discount for the mistakes.
My advice is if you buy your dress there, PLEASE take it elsewhere for alterations.
