I don’t know about DB…but I went to one last week at a different store.  They let us roam and look at dresses and pull which ones we wanted to try.  She (the girl who was my consultant) just took them all from us and put them in dressing rooms and then helped to zip up the girls when they were trying them on and she also took them away if we decided it wasn’t an option.  She brought in a few of her own she thought we might like as well.  We tried on a lot of dresses…20 maybe?

Roam and pick. If you need a bra, they’ll let you try one. That was my experience, though.

@jersharocks:  As far as I remember, the consultant was availbale to zip up or offer other assistance as it was needed, but they didn’t go in the dressing room or anything.  We just grabbed several different styles of dresses, then the girls tried them on, some of them popped out to be zipped up, but it went very smoothly and was a piece of cake 🙂

We had a consulant at my BM apt for my girls. I came in armed with what I wanted to see. The consulant pulled dresses. My girls shared a room and tried on the dresses had picked

Mom can even zip you if you want! You get to roam and pick, but the consultant will help you find something. You can try a long line bra if you want.

The only thing I hate about DB is that they act like you have to order the dress that day or it won’t come in time. This is NOT true so don’t be pressured to make the decision that day. That is unless the wedding is in the next 4-6 weeks.

@kelseyallen: I second that. I’m in a wedding on August 4th and they told me I needed to order the dress by the end of February… really? I didn’t even order my wedding dress that far in advance.

@jersharocks: I just did this two days ago… The grooms had a dress chosen from looking online (which I recommend doing because it saves time), the consultant pulled it, and I tried it on. The whole process took maybe fifteen minutes.

Went their for bridesmaid dresses last sunday and the place was Packed (we had an appt).  A lot of young people there trying on fancy dresses (for prom maybe? I don’t know). Our consultant was dealing with two groups of bridesmaids, and we just didn’t get much attention.  We roamed and picked mostly, and were on our own.  The consultant did look a couple things up for us.  No help with trying things on – no clipping dresses or anything like that.

I would suggest trying to go during a not-busy time.  When I shopped for my own dress there, I had great service and help.

My consultant there for bridesmaids never went in the dressing room with the girls, nor did they when I was oncsidreing DB for my wedding dress.   I would defitely bring someone with you though to help with zipping and holding the dress back if needed.
