Their number is not theirs, they were evicted from their premises on the grounds of FRAUD, their website does not exist. They have taken their fraud show on the road. If you see them in your community, report them as they are next to impossible to track down. I paid for a veil six months ago and it still hasn't arrived- so I did some digging and it turns out that no one knows where they are now. They will take your money. Stay away. These details are correct as of 1/11/2013. If you don't believe me, ring the number they have listed as theirs (07 5667 9903) and find out for yourself. 'heavenly bridal' (a completely different business) are the people under that number now, and they have been trying to clean up the mess Jessica Leigh smith and 'Jonathan's bridal' have left. It is downright unaustralian, and they need to be brought to justice in a court of consumer law.

I have been trying to contact these guys for 2 months after my mum and I found them in a local shopping centre 'after a bridal expo' and ordered my dream dress and paid in FULL! Now after 6 months I have no wedding dress and no contact! Office of fair trading has been contacted!!

I was once a bride from jonathans bridal, I be-friended Jessica on facebook after her great service over 3 years ago now. thankfully everything went well with my dress and to my knowledge i was given the correct style etc. i am dissapointed that she has been gloating about all of her wedding plans and her crazy honeymoon plans when so many brides have now lost so much money from her, to possibly fund her over the top lifestyle. i am not friends on facebook anymore after she posted something that made me wonder where the justice is. jessica was lovely to me at the time of my purchase but i am sorry for all of the brides who are loosing money from her because of her bad business moves.

Jessica Smith has been running a bridal scam now for over 5 years, hundreds of brides have never recieved thier dresses, dozens of complaints to Fair Trading have done nothing - stolen from friends,staff , also went bankrupt in Nov 2013 after a $50000 wedding for herself to get out of paying shop leases and upset customers. Who would like her new address

NAME & SHAME. FINALLY! Even if she doesn't go to jail, the lifetime of embarrassment of being on THE FRONT PAGE of the Sunday Mail is enough to cause anyone some grief. To show your face in Brisbane again Jessica Leigh Smith or should I say Lakidis, you will be recognised. Me, along with the what seems to be HUNDREDS of brides (yes, thats right, not just four like the paper indicates) are finally getting some recognition for all we were put through by this greedy, egotistical mental case of a woman. My wedding may have been two years ago but those wounds of only just paying back $1900+ for a dress YOU ordered wrong are still deep. I can't drive past that Loganholme shop without my blood pressure rising. Enjoy your three month vacation because when you get home, things will still be fresh in all of our minds. Shame on you. You deserve whats coming. 2012 Bride, Kayla.

I've been following this story for years. i used to work in a cake store in southport. i would have girls coming in crying and distressed about their "missing dresses" and lost deposits. can't believe its all come out in the open in the sunday paper yesterday. a victory for brides all over. pity a scam artist like this has to ruin the rep of so many trusting businesses in the same industry. so young and so evil jessica lee......

Gaby said:

So even if she is bankrupt her husband is a director of the failed scam bridal company ,looks like he will be libel for rent not paid on the two shops,stolen deposits etc. The Lakidus name is going to be in the news alot in the next year thanks to Jess.

If she owes $8000 in restitution for only 4 brides, what happens when all the other customers that lost money make claims? Will they get money back? My sister got a dress from Jonathons Bridal at the end of 2012 but it wasn't what she ordered. It was what we believe to be the sample from the rack. My mum ended up paying $500 in alterations to fix it after Jessica told us my sister must have put on weight since she got her measurements taken. I feel sorry for the ladies who seemingly have lost their money and got no dress either. What is happening to the world we live in. Jessica is a disgrace to the marriage industry and herself
