I hope you didn’t give that store your business!

I had a woman who tried to pressure me into buying a dress without my mom present (when I told her I was NOT going to do that), tried to get me to buy a dress that killed my pale complexion, and told me repeatedly about how much I needed to tan, whiten my teeth, etc.  She also informed me that I looked “hideous” in any dress but the sample that she was trying to sell me that moment.  I firmly told her that I would NOT buy the dress, that I wanted to look like myself on the wedding day, and that I would be booking another appointment with another consultant (the store was great).  The next woman was warm and friendly, and pulled several amazing dresses.  I guess it’s luck of the draw with bridal consultants!

My story happened after all my bm’s ordered their dresses.

One had ordered her dress about 8 weeks prior (and they had said six weeks) so her and I start to get a little worried. I call the store and they go find the dress and say oh yea its been since Xdate (which was about 5 weeks prior), so I asked “do you not notify people that their dresses came in?” She told me they emailed my bridesmaid (my bm’s fault for giving them her school email when she doens’t check it over the summer) and I was like, “so once you never heard from anyone you didn’t think to call anyone?” The sales person starts to get a little snippy and says ” well we call after the dress has been in the store three weeks” Ok… so I politely explain that would have been the week of y date and as soon as she realized I could tell time and they screwed up she got pissed and said well its barely been three weeks and then I got aggravated and said “no you’e missed on calling us 3 times no if you really do call after three weeks, I want to talk to your manager because I don’t like oyur attitude” and then I found out she was the manager. WTF?

 

I will never myself purchasing anything from DB and tell everyone else not to deal with them either
