I was completely duped by the owner of this store, Melissa. I visited her store on October 27, 2008 and received the best personal attention and found the perfect dress. I ordered the dress (and put down a 50% deposit) on October 31, 2008. My wedding is on June 20, 2009 (just 4 weeks away -- the date of this review is from an initial positive review I gave them that I am now changing) and I still haven't received my dress! It has been with the distributor (who I believe is the middleman between the designer and the store) for at least the last 6 weeks and they won't release it because A Bride's Storey is behind on their bills! Not only has Melissa put me in a terrible position but she has been incredibly rude throughout this entire process. No apologies, no empathy. In fact, she HUNG UP on me today when I explained my frustration to her.
Cons: You won't get your dress
