Pomona, New Jersey or Pomona, California? I live near Pomona, NJ and didn’t hear about it so I was curious.

This happened in MA a few months ago. The company had a simliar name too.

@SoontobeMrsA: The people in MA got caught and shut down though; probably would have been hard to pull off another scam.

@bunnees: That is odd. That does not show on their dates page. I take it back, they don’t seem so legit now.

It’s odd that there aren’t any local vendors connected to the show. I also think it’s odd that someone would do a show in Pomona in the summertime much less the weekend of the 405 shutdown.

http://www.herecomethebrides.net/index.html Call the number, it is some woman named Cathy….not a Bridal Expo. Scam!

On another webpage it mentions that they are proud members of the AFWI. I sent an email to that association, lets see what they say.

Just an update…I emailed the link they have on their website for the AFWI and I got some random and very unprofessional response from a guy stating he was out of the country and couldn’t respond, but that he “nows” (I am assuming this was supposed to be a “Knows” about that bridal company. He didn’t state if they were reputable.

Seems a little fishy and I highly doubt it was someone from the AFWI, probably a hijacked link.
