Dozens of brides left without gowns when dress shop closes

(NBC) - Several Florida brides are feeling the wedding blues.

The women want their wedding gowns, but likely will not get them now that the Savannah Grace bridal shop near Waterford Lakes has gone out of business.

Brie Kaplan said she paid 60% on her dream gown, close to $800.

"I'm beyond upset. This is not on my wedding checklist, let me put it that way," Kaplan said.

Another woman said she went to pick up eight bridesmaid gowns that were completely paid for, but never got the goods she was promised.

Sherry Baker is the owner of Savannah Grace who also owns a bakery called Glacie Cakes. The bakery was closed on Monday.

Baker's relatives said her business was a victim of the economy.

"Generally it is not a crime to go out of business," Orange County Consumer Fraud Investigator Melissa Allums explained.

Allums suggests consumers use credit cards when making a purchase that will be delivered in the future so that you have time to dispute the charge.
