I cannot praise the owner and staff at Simply Terrie's enough for how they helped me with my wedding gown. My fiance and I are having our wedding in northeastern PA, but we live on the West Coast. I bought my gown at a David's Bridal, had it shipped to his sister-in-law's house, and planned to have alterations done at Simply Terrie's so we could avoid the 45 minute drive into New York where the nearest David's is. The first night of fitting was a disaster. For some reason, my undergarments were the wrong size. Terrie told me, rightly so, that she could not do anything with my gown until I had the right undergarments. My future mother-in-law thus drove us up and back from New York to exchange the undergarments. The next day, I tried on the dress and saw what I believed to be armpit stains in the dress. I went out to show the dress to Terrie and her seamstress, who proceeded to find a nail polish stain on the dress, dirt on the bottom, the bustle already pinned, holes in the dress, and the inside of the dress already pinned. Someone else's dress had been shipped to me! Once again, we made the trek to New York where I complained to the staff at David's about this very inconvenient and ridiculous mistake. I finally received a replacement dress at 5PM which is usually past store hours on a weekend. The seamstress at Terrie's, however, waited until I received the new gown and made alterations on it that evening. If you live in the Troy area and you are looking for a gown, please go see the ladies at Simply Terrie's. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and, as the title says, they saved my sanity and my gown!
Pros: friendly and knowledgeable staff
