I used Prado Collection for my bridesmaid dresses and my wedding dress. My wedding was in April and I started picking out and ordering dresses in November. They were well aware of my wedding date, and never told me a time to get my bridesmaids to order dresses in order for them to be in town for the wedding. One of my bridesmaids ordered her dress (in November) so she could have it for a New Years party. Three days before New Years, when she hadn't heard from Prado, my friend called them. They had completely forgotten to order her dress, so she had to scramble to find a new dress and get it altered for the New Years Party.\r
In January, I went into Prado for a fitting for a friend's wedding. While I was there, they told me that if I didn't have all of my bridesmaids order their dresses by Monday (it was a Thursday that I was there), they wouldn't be in on time. All of my bridesmaids got there by Monday and ordered their dresses. About a week later, I got a call from them saying that I was going to have to pay $15 per dress for a rush order shipping fee for the dresses to be in time (for all 9 dresses, although 3 had been sized and ordered since November).\r
They were very rude and short. My friend also got her wedding dress there, and when we all went to see her try it on, they told her to come back some other time because they were helping prom customers. \r
I spent extra money to get the dress steamed, and when I got it, it was horribly wrinkled. My maid of honor said that Prado had told her that it was impossible to make the dress not wrinkled because it was made of silk. There was absolutely no silk in my dress. I was extremely upset about that, and ended up steaming my dress with an iron minutes before I walked down the aisle.\r
Between my bridesmaids and myself, we spent around $2,600 at Prado for my wedding. Wedding planning is stressful enough, so there is no reason to go to spend a bunch of money just to be treated rudely.
Pros: Carry Maggie Sottero (but so do places in Cleveland and Dalton)
Cons: Rude, Sleazy, Unprofessional
