I went to Fontana's Bridal Salon (Fontana Couture, whatever they want to change their name to so they can avoid bad reviews) because they were having a trunk show on the designer, Allure, that I wanted so I went without reading ANY reviews of this place. BIG MISTAKE. My wedding was mid-September and I was told that I would have my gown by mid-August. On 6/24, my card was charged $695 for "alterations" that I never had. When I called, I spoke directly to Nancy Fontana who told me they "pre-charge" for alterations of $695 when the gown comes in. . Yep, PRE CHARGE (how weird is that given that they didn't even know at the time I would be using their salon for alterations) but I was just happy they said my gown was in and made an alteration appointment for 8/23. Well, when I called myself to confirm my own alterations appt (yes, I had to call to confirm myself), I had to speak to at least 5 different people who kept HANGING UP ON ME until finally Cory Fontana, the "owner", got on the line to tell me MY DRESS WASN'T IN. Yep, I was getting married in three weeks and my dress "had not arrived" and no one had the guts to call me to tell me. So they charged my card without my consent, without the dress being in, and then promised me a refund for the $695 alterations. I even have it in writing that they would refunding me.

My dress didn't end up coming until TWO WEEKS before my wedding which was the scariest thing that ever happened and my mother and sister almost missed my fittings. How sad is that? This is supposed to be the happiest time of your life and they ruined that. On top of everything, I STILL HAVEN'T RECEIVED THE REFUND. A complaint is filed with the BBB and when we were in the salon, some poor woman was waiting for a refund she was also promised!

Bottom line: DO NOT SHOP HERE. Trust the reviews below - THIS PLACE IS A SCAM.

Fontana Bridal has a wonderful selection of dresses and they really do make every effort to partner with you on timing and pricing. Corey Fontana (one of the owners) was incredibly patient with me as I kept reaching out (and was nervous) about my dress coming in on time. I am planning a wedding for 6 months post engagement - so I was quite a nervous nelly when it came to waiting a few months for my dress.

I think part of my nervousness was not fully understanding the process. Every dress is custom made. Once the manufacturer makes a delivery commitment, there is little that the retailer (any retailer) can do in terms of finding out the status of the dress. They can follow up a little better around the time the dress is expected to arrive.

My dress did arrive within a week of when I was informed that it would. I showed up for my first fitting, during which Corey, and several other staff members (including Lulu and Ardianna) came to check in and help me out. Ardianna worked a miracle as I needed an additional piece for my dress to be more covered for my ceremony.

Fontana's customer service is fantastic - and they are really patient with nervous (and somewhat naturally impatient brides). They've been in business since the 1940s - and for good reason. They are a family run business, and they truly just want to please their customers.

I ordered my dress at Fontana Bridal Salon in January for my November 7th wedding. My nightmare started when July rolled around and the DEBIT card on file was charged for alterations. I contacted the store, hoping it was a mistake, seeing as the charge was unauthorized. Only once did I receive a call from the business and at that time I was told my dress would arrive by the end of August, with still no word on the alterations refund. After two months of waiting, and many phone calls later, my fiancé and I stopped in to attempt to resolve the issues. The sales associate could not give us a definite answer in regards to either issue. At that time I asked to collect the accessories I ordered with the dress in January. These were clearly the sample items I tried on the day I ordered the dress, very USED. I have reason to believe this business took my money and never ordered my gown.

DON'T GO HERE! Save yourself.

If you want to feel like a princess and feel that you are the most important person in the world not only on your wedding day but the day you pick out your dress then I would go to Fontana to buy your wedding gown. I first went New York City to search for my wedding gown. I went to Saks 5th ave, Kleinfelds and I felt rushed. My mom wanted to go to Fontana to look for the mother of the bride dress so I went with her. We went there without an appointment. Dana greeted us asked if we needed help and came up with dresses for my mom that she thought she would look good in. Even without an appointment we were given the royal treatment. They asked if I wanted to try on this one gown I had been staring at(I tried it on in the city and loved it but they rushed me out of it and never let me enjoy the dress)and I said no, because I didn’t want to be a bother. After awhile they said you have to go try it. I tried on the gown and I fell in love with it. I wanted to try on another dress to see if I had the same feeling, they gladly let me try on another gown and I knew it wasn’t the one, they said try on the original gown again. I put my dream dress back on and walked out of the room, I started to cry because I knew it was the one. They gave us champagne for me and mom to toast to. After about another half an hour walking around the store in my gown( that they never pressure me to take off) my mom said that’s it we have to get it. Meanwhile they were close to closing time and they never once pointed that out to me or rushed me. I felt as though I was with my extended family, they wanted me to have this gown, they shared the most special moment with me. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to purchase the most important dress in my life. Everyone at Fontana was so unbelievably genuinely nice and happy. They greeted us with warmth and compassion. Dana went out of her way for me, she had so much patience and was just genuinely thrilled to be helping me try on gowns.

Never in my life have I been treated so badly, especially by a wedding vendor. I started shopping in November, and went to numerous stores before I found what I thought was my dream dress at Fontana. I ordered the dress, and in March, I called the store to check in on the dress. They assured me that it would be in by early summer. Early summer came and went, so the last week of June I called and asked for an update again. The associate assured me, again, that it would be in by the first week of July. Early July then came and went, and I had tried multiple times to contact Fontana and get some information. Every time I called, they told me it would be in the following week. This went on for the entire month of July. Finally, I received a call that my dress was coming in the first week of August, and they scheduled a fitting date. The day of my fitting I received a message, that said that the dress was scheduled to come in, but never did. I was told I would be getting an update very soon, but I received no such update. I was told someone would call me to check in, and NO ONE called. My mother finally went into the store and demanded to talk to the owner. Cory Fontana came out, and assured her that the dress would be in the following Thursday. That Thursday came and went, and still no dress. I finally asked for my money back, since it was 30 days until my wedding, and they could not tell me where my dress was. I didn't even want the dress at this point, it just reminded me of this terribly stressful ordeal. The owner refused, until my father came into the store. He said the dress would be in the following Monday. Somehow he had the dress overnighted to the store to get out of giving us a refund. They showed no remorse and made no apologies. They told me that the "wear date" was September 27th (my wedding date), and legally, they only have to produce the gown by that date. DO NOT SHOP AT THIS STORE. You will be sorry, these people are crooks. Go somewhere else.

This was our fourth bridal boutique and finally we found a place where I felt like a special bride-to-be. It was such a special experience for my mother and sisters that my mother was brought to tears.

We went out in the snow storm and it was worth the trip! While everyone working there was attentive and friendly, the consultant who helped me specifically, Tracey, was incredible. I told her the style I liked and she patiently found dress after dress for me to try on. She was honest and that was something I definitely appreciated. Being yessed to death wasn't what I was looking for.

The hospitality was lovely, with nice touches like champagne for myself and my bridal party. By the time we left our group hugged included the consultant, Tracey. She had become an unofficial member of the bridal party!

Sure enough, I said yes to the dress! Their selection in dresses in various price ranges was great. Their prices were more than competitive and the service and attention was unparalleled.

My second trip to Fontana and it was as positive as the first one. Tracey and Dana were so accommodating. I had wanted to make sure about sizing on my beautiful wedding dress. The ladies gladly brought my dress up, answered all my questions and reassured my mother and me. I felt like my questions might have been silly but neither of the ladies ever made me feel that way. They were patient and honest.

I would highly recommend Fontana for any dress needs! Thank you so much Tracey and Dana!

I ordered (and paid in full) my wedding dress in July 2013 for my June 2014 wedding. At that time, I was told that my dress would arrive in January 2014. It is now mid-March 2014 and I still do not have my dress. I have called the salon almost daily for the last month and every single time I am told that there is a call into the manufacturer and that someone will call me back tomorrow. No one ever calls me back. I chose Fontana because the designer I wanted was having a trunk sale there. If I had known that the service would be this poor, I certainly would have gone elsewhere. I would not recommend this store to anyone.
