Thanks for the suggestion and yes, I have been on Allure with no luck.
And, yes, I did write the salon a very direct e-mail letting them know I would tell all my friends about their level of honest to upstate NY brides….hope they got the hint!
I’ve been told by other birdal salons that this salon might have bought the dress from some random manufacturer in China for 100 bucks and lied so they could sell it for $1600. If that is so I’ll never find this dress…

@Brose: I’m from Albany as well. Could you PM me with the name of the salon? I’m interested to know which one it is.
Also, I bought my dress from a great bridal shop and I’d be happy to PM you the name if you would like to know.

Thanks for the help! PL by G confirmed it was not there dress, though I might by one from them if I can’t find this one and its not an Allure.
I tried to google the salon but it just listed many advertisements. Good idea though, I’ll keep trying!

I tried to find this dress but I had no luck. However I did find some that are similar by private label! Good luck finding your dress. I hope I have helped.

They rip the tags out? Ew!! I am totally behind you in your boycott! Make sure you post a review on yelp.com too.

Yelp them and also, you ought to report them to the Better Business Bureau. This is terribly dishonest and horrid.

Prettylady – THANKS SO MUCH! Great choices!
Cheerful and Maisymay – I posted on yelp.com and I would like to BBB her ASAP! Anyone know if you can get sued by sharing your true experiences???

Can’t be sued for telling the truth. It’s not slander, it’s truth. They need to know because the salon is breaking the law.

Not that this would happen, but . . .
Technically you can be sued for liable or slander; however, truth is an affirmative defense to the claims for defamation.

You can get it recreated by Milly bridal. Send them the piccture of it. They might of got it made in china and torn the tag off to sell it for more.

sorry you have to deal with this. It is a beautiful dress.
i guess i am perplexed WHY they lied to you about the designer – they gain nothing from it. If they didn’t want to give it out, they should have just said so. You could always go to the store, ask them to try it on, and find out the designer from the dress that way, and not purchase from there…

It could be a 2be dress. My dress is 2be and it is not listed on the website. I discovered it at a trunk show. I actually cannot find a picture online anywhere. But it is from a VERY reputable bridal salon and I saw the tag and everything. It seems that the 2be website isn’t updated that frequently. See if you can catch a trunk show. It could be there. How long ago did you see it?

I kinda think it looks like a casablanca dress but i’m not an expert!

To answer some questions:
Miss. Skinner – It’s not a 2BeBride – I e-mailed corporate and they told me so. PLus, I did attend a truck show and they confirmed it as well.
Ellenphant – Going there to try the dress on doesn’t work since the owner rips the original tags out, giving you no idea who makes it. They do gain something from lying – if you don’t know who makes it you are not able to comparision shop, and I don’t know about you, but in this economy I have to… This salon owner just thought she wouldn’t get caught.
Mrscingle2be – I checked with Casablanca and no luck! But thanks!
This experience has shown me the underbelly of the bridal world – I hope you all have better experiences then I.
Thanks again for all your help!
