Thank You Sister's Bridal for closing your doors. You have taken the orders & money from several brides and without warning you have gone outta a business. You have screwed up the plans for people getting married this summer. How do you expect girls' to get a new wedding dress & bridemaids to get new dresses 2 weeks before the wedding??

Lawsuit's are coming...that's a guarantee!!! I'm gonna make sure that it cost's more than just the replacement of the money that has been spent for just the dresses. You have left girl's scrambling and possibley ruining thier big day.

I was warned not to do business with you because of the crappy service and the attitudes your employees have given others.....but you had the dress I wanted & paid for and now do not have!!!

We can not let her get away with taking our money and dresses! i ordered my dress a year ago! and there is no excuse as to why i dont have it!

Yep...going in the mornin to the court house to get small claims papers to file also. Do it quick before she files for bankruptcy.
And we are not the only one's....I have spoke to someone I know that lives close to the shop and she has told me the owner has been seen leaving the buisness late at night. Hmmmmm is that because she knows she has screwed so many girls over that she's afraid to be there in the day time in case someone shows up and wants to confront her??

I am dealing with same thing today. My Bridesmaids dresses were paid for on 7/27/12. My seamstress, whom did work for Sister's gave me the heads up today on how she has not opened shop and not returned calls. She called me today to tell me that the owner had emptied the store and was gone.!!!! We need to do something about this because she has ruined my chance at getting the dresses for my girls!!!!!!!

Her home address has been written on one of the many notes attached to the front door at Sisters. I also bought and paid for my wedding dress in full (my wedding is less than 3 weeks away) and I never received it, up until early last week she had been lying to my face telling me not to worry that it would be coming in. I filed a small claims case today against the shop and her personally! My court date is set up for September. She also tried to convince my soon to be mother in law to buy a dress last week that could order/received quickly, however, her credit card machine was "broken" so she would have to pay in cash! thank-goodness we didn't do this....it was all just a lie to get more money before shutting her doors. I have left many voicemails for her and one day texted her continually trying to get a response, of course I never received any sort of answer. Make sure you contact Dunhill if you ordered tuxes thru her, as that order was never placed for my wedding...so we had to go through another store and have 11 guys remeasured!!! She is a thief, I would be happy to testify/provide information of my own issues for anyone elses cases if necessary to show all the damage this woman caused. I wish you all the best in getting things back on track for your weddings!

I would love to see about filing all together. It may be a long shot, but this woman knowingly took our money with no intent to produce a product!

I knew something was wrong when i ordered my dress LAST August! she has been giving me the run around for the last 4-5 months. like, really? it takes a YEAR to get a veil in? it's just tuile on a hair pin for christ's sake!!! I agree with Nightmare 1.....we need to band together and get this evil horrible woman for all we can get. Terry Bernstein should know that screwing with Brides is not a good idea! I honestly would love to ask her how she sleeps at night!

I was just married in May and I cant even imagine what each bride is going through. To any bride out there that is looking for something quick, I ordered a dress and decided that it wasnt the best fit for me and ended up getting a different dress, it is a $1200 Maggie Sottero dress. I am currently trying to sell it. Its brand new, never even been on someone. Absolutely beautiful and very flattering! I live in Valpo and I am selling it for a discounted price. I am sure the last thing anyone wants to do is spend more money, but hopefully each bride is able to get that scamming b*%#* and get their money back!!!! Good Luck Brides! Contact me at [email protected] if you are interested in the dress I have!! Maggie Sottero Adorae, size 10, Diamond White, never worn, never altered!
