Hi ... I'm Linda Ruckdeschel, the owner of The Bridal Connection and L'Emporeia Fine Gifts, located in Syracuse, New York.
Welcome to our website. We hope you'll find it informative and helpful.
Our mission is to offer you the best in planning services, decorating and one-stop shopping (at great prices) to help you create a perfect day. Whether you're planning an intimate event for family or for half the town, you can count on us.
You'll find everything you want in one place, from A-Z .. gowns, lingerie, accessories, decorating ideas, rentals, favors, invitations and more, saving you time and money.
You'll receive nothing less than attentive, personal service -- whether you're here in town, or miles away. Short orders for items on our website or Pinterest boards are welcome, and we're often able to provide same or next day shipping on in-stock merchandise.
CONSIGNMENTS: A limited number of bridal gowns and formal wear are accepted for consignment sales. Gowns must either be brand new w/tags still on, and/or once-worn, and in immaculately clean condition. Please inquire.
You'll love our convenient, flexible evening and weekend hours (posted elsewhere on this site). If you get the answering machine, it may mean that we're with another customer at that moment. Know that YOUR call is important to us. PLEASE leave a message, and we'll call you back as quickly as we can!
