I hope this person’s business goes under. And is perhaps egged.

That happened in a city near me, but with flowers.  You should have seen the backlash!

I’m so sorry for that poor girl.

In my opinion, even if you disagree with something (ie someone being gay), your taking drastic actions, or singling them out and treating them different…that’s not going to make them decide to not be gay.  How dare she make one of the happiest moments of this girl’s life such a sad event?

This just sickens me.

This is ridiculous! I don’t even understand how, who your marrying should be a factor in your ability to book or purchase anything related to a wedding, let alone anything in life.

That just makes me so sad. 🙁

Good to hear that the bride has a very, very supportive and loving family, though! So many in the LGBT community do not have that support from family.

A better way to protest this, would be for EVERY bride buying a dress within a hundred mile radius of this store, to send them a letter with a copy of their wedding dress receipt from a competitors store, with a letter stating, “This is how much your close-minded attitude cost you. I took my business elsewhere.” I’d say a couple dozen of these letters, would change their minds real fast.

Wow.  Just wow.  

Besides the fact that I really feel for the bride here and am horrified for her, I totally don’t get the shop owner’s actions.  I understand she may have her own personal feelings on gay marriage.  But how is entering a legal civil union in New Jersey and a legal marriage in New York an illegal act?  And what small business owner turns away a paying customer? I cannot believe any business owner would not know that treating any customer that way is going to come back to bite her.  Smh.

If I lived in NJ, I would set up camp outside of “Here Comes the Bride” (creative name, btw *eye roll*) and protest. People like Donna disgust me and should not be allowed to work with the public (or breathe for that matter). I can only hope that someday she gets what’s coming to her, perhaps in the form of a kick to the face.

Ugh, this makes me so angry.  I hope that nobody buys anymore from her, and then realizes what a big mistake she has made.  It’s one thing to think these things, but to actually say it to someone…I can’t even imagine being so mean.

The article you posted said that they couldn’t find her last name but it’s clearly listed under the BBB page for the shop. Doing a google search also shows some interesting things in her background. It really is a shame what she has done.
