I went to website www.AllureBridals.com
website sometime on June 24, 2013 and found my dream dress Style # C208. On this website there is a tab "Where to Buy". I clicked on that tab and type in my zip code. Then a list of bridals boutiques appeared. I called all of them to see if they had the dress Style #C208. Judy from The Wedding Dress Bridal called me back and said that she can order the dress and sell it to me for ONLY $1000 and I would receive it in two months! I thought my dream came true!
I couldn't believe it! I went ahead and agreed to meet her at her office which was at the time in Temecula at address 42072 5th St. 105A Temecula, CA 92590 and 28545 Old Town Front Street Temecula, CA 92590. Her Office was seperate from her "so called" Bridal Boutique which was so small that it looked like a closet.
She only had like 3 wedding bridal dresses and 10 boxes of shoes and a couple of veils... There was probably a few more accessories but that was it. I wasn't impressed but i thought she was so nice and helpful and since she said that she can order my dress for cheaper beating the other wedding boutiques asking price which was the retail cost was around $1750.00 I believe.
I wrote Judy Nickles a check the same day as the 1st visit on June 27, 2013, because she said she didn't accept credit cards and she gave me a written receipt. The next day she cashes the check. The night before she cashed the check and when I got home I decided to look up her reviews online. Some clients were complaining that they never received their wedding dress or veil and some said that they received a knock off.
Immediately, I was concerned and consulted with my husband that same night. The next day I decided to call my bank to stop payment on the check but it was already too late. She didn't waste anytime cashing the check in. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt so I called her and text her and she ensured me that my dress will be authentic and by allure and I will receive it in two months.
Two months went by and so I call and text her again sometime in August to find out where my dress is. She said that it will take three months instead of two months. Then I text her in September and asked her when I should expect my dress. She said two more months.
It's January 2014 and I still haven't received my dress! I found more reviews on Yelp, Rip-off Report and etc. That I just confirmed my doubts about her and her business.
As I am writing this I went to the Allure Bridals website again and The Wedding Dress Bridal website is still on their page as a recommended bridal boutique that is close to my zip code, however, The Wedding Dress Bridal has moved to a new location. The address is 119 N. Main Street #D Fallbrook, CA 92028. New phone number 951-834-3174. Im writing this to report her and her fraudualnt activities. This is not the way to run a business stealing peoples money, being deceptive and moving once they figure out she is a FRAUD!
