Southern Bridal Registry

Wednesday afternoon I got a phone call from a rep from Southern Bridal Registry telling me that I won a free Honeymoon package and my fiance and I have to attend the Bridal Show they are hosting this weekend in Lafayette Louisiana. She gave me a confirmation number and told me this was my 'key' to get in. She also told me that 'Mike' would call to confirm my reservation for the show at the Holidome in Lafayette. I did a little research on them and couldn't find a website for them, but found this website instead and I am sooo glad I did. I have all the information for the times they will be in town this weekend, so PLEASE CONTACT ME AT tiffanyg_sbbq@bellsouth.net if you would like to go and confront them about orders never received and such!! Thanks to all of you that posted comments and stories to prevent me from being screwed.

you know what i totally disagree. I have had the same calls and i even attended the show, and it was real. I got my trips and the hotels were all five star hotels. And when i attened the show everyone was real nice, the food was awesome. It was everything that they said it would be. Everything was great. THAT COMPANY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! why would you even say something bad about that company, when you guys didn't attend their? Have you guys ever heard you can always believe what you hear, thats the same way with the internet.

I think "Karen" probably works for the company because i got the same call, researched it online, and all I found were people complaining and saying it was a scam. "Karen" is the only one i ever read say anything good about it. i never heard "You can always believe what you hear" and the internet is full of scams! The only thing I heard is "Don't belive everything you hear" ... oh, and "If something sounds too good to be true, well then, it probably is".

I got a phone call from 'Amy' saying that I won a honeymoon for my fiance (I don't have one) and myself. I had never even heard of Southern Bridal Registry before. I don't know how they got my phone number - they must have bought it off of some other website. I don't trust them.

Ok you know what I dont work for them But i wish i did they probably make good money probably better than what i do here at Walmart on harding place in nashville tn. Why would you even say i worked for them? Just cuz i said good things about them? Well everything that i said is true And i am enjoying my Toasting Goblets and my Checkered silverware and my Blue flowered Crystal plates. They are so great.And I think that ya'll need to stop saying stuff about them when ya'll didnt even attend their show. They are trying to do something good for everybody out there. And you dont have to buy any of their products that was a choice. Me and Bob wanted to. THANK YOU SOUTHERN BRIDAL REGISTRY!!! ME AND BOB ARE SO HAPPY WE GET THE HONEYMOON THAT WE NEVER HAD!!! THANKS YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!!

My fiance and I recieved a call from Southern Bridal ( Amy ) saying that we were seclected to recieve a HONEYMOON but we had to attend a Bridal Show to get them. So of course we thought that we were going to have to buy something to get them. So I talked him into going with me.
The show was actually alot of fun. We spent maybe a hour watchingthe presentation.We didnt buy any of the cookware, because we have everything that we need already. So we thought we were going to leave there empty handed, but the salesmen sat us down and went over everything with us.
We just recently took one of there complimentary trips to Las Vegas and stayed at the Excalibur Hotel. It was a dream vacation and unbelievable experience for us. The hotel staff was very kind and courteous. Check-In was very easy and it did not take long. We got back our 50 deposit back that I had forgotten about and got to us it toward our trip. We enjoyed the idea of being on the strip without any alternative travel to reach it.
I just recently went to a bridal expo and recieved a simular travel offer through Simplicity Gourmet. It said it was a All-Inclusive . You have to send 59.50 per person per night and it does not state how much for extra night. It will automatically cost you almost 500.00 total to spend 4 nights and 5 days... WOW...
Truly enjoyed Las Vegas and will travel again in the near future due to given the initial experience from Southern Bridal Registry ( Royal Prestige ). We are goiong to us our All-Inclusive package to the Bahamas for our 1 yr anniversary. If you happen to get the opportunity to go to the Bridal Registry Show PLEASE DO SO...

I got a call today saying my fiance and I won a honeymoon, toasting glasses, and some other things. They said I had to attend the show this weekend in Johnson City, TN. We are going, because I read some of the good things on this board and I think that this isnt just a scam. If it is, I will report back and let ya'll know. If it is a scam, oh well. Its only a short trip to Johnson City for us. It would be bad to blow this off as a scam and lose a basically free trip and other goodies! The lady on the phone was very nice and my friend got a trip to Cancun from this company a while back and said it was real and the company is so nice. I will let ya'll know if this is real or not. I think you have to go to the show to claim your prizes!

I went to this show last night and it was great. The guy was really nice and we got our trip package. My fiances mom went with us and they even gave her a package. The food was great and the atmosphere was friendly. I feel sorry for all yall that lost your trip cause you thought it was a scam.

I received my call this morning and was kind of wondering if it was scam so I came here to read up on it before I drive all of the way to Mobile, AL. So far I am hearing great things and I will take my chances. What do I have to lose! Thanks for the help...I will let you know how it goes.

I don't know yet what to think about the company, I'm pretty sure it's a scam...I ran into these people at the local bridal fair and they called me today to tell me I had "won" two vacations for me and my fiance. I'm supposed to go to a presentation Friday night. I'm iffy about it. Especially since after reading this board and another message board complaining about the company, the majority of the "happy" comments I've read are from the same Karen and Priscilla that on the other board said they worked for the company and very colorfully blasted another "former employee" who admitted to the scam. So I'm up in the air about it, but chances are, I won't go to the presentation. I would normally take my chances on it, like Kelly, but that's my date night with my fiance, and if it's a scam I'll just be ill that I lost that date night. Thanks for everyone who was honest.

You are the one that missed out on the trips. Now you & your fiance Are going to have to pay for your whole entire honeymoon or just not have a honeymoon. And there are more than 1 karen & 1 cilla in the world.

My name is Sarah and i worked for them about a year ago. Everything they say is true. They allowed me to go to the show and my fiancee and i got the toasting glasses and the trips. i was skeptical of the trips even when i worked there but after checking them out, they are completely real. the resorts have a deal with southern bridal. they hope you enjoy your stay to the point where you purchase more days. good company and nice folks. do some real research and youll find the truth. just listening to people who havent even really looked into it except googling it is ridiculous. do the work for yourself...

It's a bit funny, I just received a call saying that I won some free champagne glasses and that I need to call back, so I did a reverse phone number search and the company is based out of Nashville. Same place this Karen chick is from...
