Did anyone go to David’s Bridal (or any wedding dress store) with their wedding dress that you didn’t buy from them to look at crinolines (or something like that)?
I need a crinoline for my vintage dress, but I feel weird walking in with my pre-purchased dress to try on crinolines. Does this happen often, you think? Or has anyone done something like this?

Bump! I’ve been wondering the same thing…

You could always call first if you feel uncomfortable…or find a place that resells wedding related items. I definitely would have gone that route if I had realized they existed and hadn’t gotten wrapped up in the moment of buying the dress and all the stuff with it!

I stopped in today to look at their crinoline skirts and I was very put off by the staff. When I asked about the crinoline skirt I was told they keep them in the back and was rudely asked if I purchased my dress though DB. When I responded “no” I was ignored until I left. Granted it was busy today but still, they are advertised for sale on the DB website so who cares if I want to JUST buy a crinoline???
I’m either going to buy online or just have my salon added another layer or two to the dress with the alterations.

@Pand0ra: That’s what I’m afraid of. I’ve heard terrible things about David’s Bridal, so I might just look around for another bridal store. The thing is, they are a monoply by me and have pushed out of business so many independant stores! And I want to try the crinoline on in person so I can determine which one will work best.
