Yeah I've heard the same rumor last Fall from Lori's Bridal, This Side of Heaven's competition. The day I walked into Lori's and told them i found a wedding gown at This Side of Heaven they told me not to buy from there since they were going out of business. If you ask me, that is the most pathetic way to compete with others, to spread rumors is horrible business practice. Girls...don;t you think that the doors would be closed already if they were going out of business over a year ago. I bought everything there. Bridal gown, bridesmaids, tuxedos, gifts, mother's gown, flower girl dress, jewelry, my shoes and accessories and they are doing my flowers and my decorating. I have gotten everything in earlier than expected and have had a wonderful experience. It is sad that the Bride in Distress has heard this rumor, because it is not coming from a reliable source and the ones that are spreading rumors are in fact the ones that are causing the bride to be stressed, not This Side of Heaven. I wouuld and plan to highly recommend This Side of Heaven to everyone I know getting married. While planning a wedding is truly stressful, keep in mind that rumors very rarely have a lot of merit behind them, and falling victim to them is only going to cause you to be more stressed. Good luck ladies planning your wedding.
