Hi All, I live in Syracuse but we are having a destination wedding. Anyway, I just wanted to let others know of my experience with SpyBaby Bridals in Syracuse.
I went there to try on dresses and found one I liked, but found it for less at a different store. I told them I would buy the veil from them and the dress if they could match the price but they wouldn't so I just got the veil.
They charged me 50 dollars for being measured and had me sign a contract. When I got home I read the paper and it said that if you do not buy a dress from them and just get measured it is 15 dollars. I called them and first they acted like they didn't know what I was talking about, it is in their contract's fine print! Then said that bridal was 50 and others were 15, even though on the contract it says 15 for bridal. They didn't change it and I wish I had read the fine print before I left the store!
While I was there, some women were there for bridesmaid dress pick up and alterations, and they had quoted them one price and then raised it again with some excuse that the price before didn't take into consideration the lining layer of the dress! And the prices were crazy!
Anyway, I have a wonderful seamstress and I am using her for my dress, I wanted to let other knotties in the area know in case they can save money, unlike me, to read the contract and be careful of multiple, different price quotes from them. Also, if you want the name of the seamstress I use in Syracuse, PM me.
Happy Planning Syracuse and CNY brides!
