Hey bees! So i keep seeing/hearing horror stories about dress alterations at DB. Did anyone have a good experience with their alterations there? i am getting nervouse, but i dont like the idea of trusting a random tailor shop with my wedding dress either. Please tell me someone has had a good experience!!!

I was thinking the same thing…I saw another thread about this…I got my dress at DB this weekend and now I am reconsidering having my alterations done there…

I got my dress there, but I’m taking it to someone else who also specializes in wedding dresses. I feel more confident using her than hoping DB doesn’t ruin my dress, which they no longer carry. Good luck, either way!

Not all David’s Bridals are going to be the same, I suggest looking up your local DB store online and see if they have reviews.
My local one has 7 reviews, all of them are bad lol
But I didn’t have a problem at all when I went, a couple of the consultants were snobby but I got the same consultant each time I went even when they put me with someone else haha
and I met with 2 of the alteration women and both of them were extremely nice and even showed me things they could do on the dresses

I would suggest NOT taking a David’s Bridal dress to them for alterations. Not because of price, but because of cost. Instead, other seamstresses from other bridal shops are normally a better bet.
My wedding dress was NOT a David’s Bridal dress, but I used the local David’s Bridal seamstress. I took my dress to her house and she did everything it needed. It was BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT! She only charged me $150 for everything: hem (it was complicated), some beading removed, taking in the hips, and a 5 point bustle. She said that if I would have gone through David’s Bridal, they would have made her charge $400. On top of that pricey charge, the seamstress only makes about $100 of that. David’s Bridal pockets the rest.
