This place is terrible. In fact it seems that they have deleted their former reviews because they all said how terrible it was. I saw the reviews but thought that they must be exaggerated. As it turns out...they weren't.
1. Yes, you have to pay to try on wedding dresses. This was the first place I went to try on dresses after getting engaged, and while they told me that they would apply the money towards the price of my dress if I got it there, I had no intention on purchasing a dress at the first store I went to. However, since I was newly engaged and excited, I paid and started to try on dresses.
2. No pictures. I am originally from NY, and my parents and sisters still live there. Naturally, they wanted to see pictures of my first venture into a wedding dress. Nope! The owner came over, and even after explaining my situation she told me that I could not take pictures and that if I did I would need to leave.
Don't waste your time!
