I recently went to “Blush Bridal Boutique” in Gainesville, VA… I would not rec them for one moment.
They have great designers and great gowns. The business is plain awful!
They knew I was driving 3.5 hrs to come see one dress. Obviously I really really like it, and being a Justin Alexander know it’s in the $2,000+ range.
–They wouldn’t quote me a price, period. Unless in person.
– They could’t give directions! Seriously, the girl I was speaking too changed her mind 3 times for a one street one turn way to get to the store, then told me it was across the highway from a hotel. Well, it’s on the same side of the highway as the hotel. That’s only the beginning of how the employees are completely space cadets.
-Every dress in the store contained a tag, including designers name and price. They had the Justin all ready to go for me… without a price tag. When I asked for a price she went to the register to look and came back with a price $200 higher than any other store I’ve talked to or heard of (including Kleinfields).
-Since only the High School age employee’s where there, they had to leave me to go call the owner to negotiate on “my” behalf.
-The dress came with an ornate, hand beaded, lace long sleeve jacket. They were only going to give me a $100 discount to not order it.
-They told me the color of the sample was the ONLY color the dress came in. It was a dark toffee color. According to the JA website and others who have bought the dress in IVORY… that’s not the only color.
Considering the level of the dresses they sell, the store is completely un-professional and un-ethical. I’ve seen reviews mentioning how bad the alterations process is there, but I didn’t think much of it as i would just be buying the gown. If I end up with this dress, it will NOT be from this store.
