I’ve heard bad reviews of DB USA on here and was wondering if anyone has had recent experience of DB UK? Going to make the trip but I’m a bit put off by horror stories of pushy consultants and rushed appointments!
Thanks In Advance x

I know of one of my friends who used them, she found a dress she liked but she wasnt sure about it. it was in the sale though and the sales assistant was very pushy with her and basically said they couldn’t hold it for her so she could think about it she had to make up her mind there and then. She ended up buying it and she had to take it away with her that day! I know they can have good prices but i think you’d be better off going to an independant bridal salon if you can!

I bought my dress from the DB in the UK, I would highly recommend them. I saw 3 different consultants and they were all great, attentive, helpful and not at all pushy in my experience. I think someone mentioned on here that they don’t work on commission, which would make sense with my experience. They gave me lots of time, I was quite late for the first one as got stuck in traffic, and they moved everything around so they could still see us.
I went to several other bridal stores, some high end, and the best experience I had was at DB Stratford. I’m going to buy my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there too as had such a good experience 🙂
The store is also nicely done out, with the wedding dresses upstairs, so very private (No feeling like people gawping in from the street as I had with some). It looks more ‘upmarket’ than the U.S. stores from what I’ve seen in peoples pics.

I’ve been to the Stratford one and I had a great service. No pressure to purchase and the girl was really helpful. I don’t know if I would have the alterations done there because I don’t know what the level of their experience or skill, but who knows 🙂 I think they have a great selection of dresses in good price range and I felt well taken care of when I went.

My budget is heading towards a DB dress and it’s nice to know it’s (mostly) OK!

Stratford DB is beyond wonderful they have been amazing with me as I have changed my mind so many times. The consultants are really helpful and friendly not pushy at all and I really can’t recommend them highly enough. They have a great selection of all styles of dress and were fabulous too for my bridesmaids definitely worth a visit!

I was at Stratford DB today, actually. apparently they’d had someone call in sick, so my consultant did two brides at once, which was a bit awkward at times. Also, she was very pushy (my timeline is a bit tight – 30 May of this year) so I can understand making it clear that I don’t have a whole lot of time to think, but when I told her I couldn’t commit today, she was a bit horrible about how I wouldn’t find anything if I didnt get it right then.
