I know there are lots of these but here’s another. I’ve got an appointment Thursday night to try on dresses for the first time – it’s at DB, I know, I’ve heard good and bad, but I’ve been to this store on 3 or 4 seperate occasions now and everyone has always been super helpful (me going in without an appointment to ask quesitons and look around).
Any advice to keep my appointment on track? Things I should or shouldn’t do? SO excited (wish I wasn’t going alone but I’ll manage)

It might actually be more benefical to go alone on your first trip, I didn’t but looking back maybe I should have. Once you try on some gowns and start getting an idea of what you like it’s better to bring people. David’s sales people are notoriously pushy about their dresses and if they see that you like one a lot, they’ll tell you it’s on sale through a certain date or they’ll tell you it’s going to be discontinued, don’t believe that crap for a second. I’ve had good and bad experiences with David’s so it’s dependent on the location you’re at. Good luck!

@SOONTOBEMRS_Z: thanks for that tip. It’s impossible for me to buy my dress on Thursday. We just booked plane tickets to go to my hometown for a wedding/vacation/engagement party that cost over $1000 and we’re booking our venue this week another $1000 deposit and I don’t get paid until next week so there’s no money in the bank right now to pay for a dress no matter how hard they try!
I’ve got a list of about 25 styles I like from their website. A few I know they have, a few I know are online only. There are 2 that i HAVE to try on. Is it possible to give them TOO many styles (that are all DB). I’m on a budget so I’m trying to make sure I find things that are within my range that I like (at least in the picture or on the hanger)

@MsGinkgo: I think it might be possible to give them too many styles but if some of those 25 are similar in stlye or shape then it might be ok. Tell them what your budget is and if they bring you anything over, tell them right away. Or ask the price of each gown as you’re trying it on.
