Maybe that was because you didn’t have an appointment. I went to David’s and the salesgirl was there the whole time, helping me in and out of every dress.

Yep I can say that I had pretty much that same experience.  It was sort of weird….she didn’t even have clips ready, she had to go find some for me…..I thought the whole experience was odd.

So odd…I did NOT have that experience at DB, but I didn’t like the experience I had, either.

I had the same experience- but I was actually glad to be left alone.  She checked on me occasinally, but was mostly busy with another girl.  This was during a week day morning appointment.

I got my dress at a small bridal boutique.  I was turned off of them when I had to get a bridesmaid dress for a wedding I was in at DB.

I did however get my bridesmaid dresses there because they do have the best selection.

I went to DB and my saleslady helped me in and out of the dress and immediately clipped it so I could see what it would look like.  Granted, I had an appointment and there was only one other girl in the store, so that might have helped.

I did not have a good experience at DB. I went on a Saturday and I know that they are busy – and they did warn us. But the girl flat out said “I am very busy today so I will not be able to help you or bring you a lot of different dresses” I was turned off and even though I found a dress I loved I didnt want her to get the sale.

At Davids I was helped, but I didn’t need anyone in the room w/ me. I had my sister thankfully, and then I went to some Bridal Salon and felt like I was treated like trash. I didn’t want the conventional, and I didn’t think I was asking that much, and then when you throw in the B.. word.. (Budget) It was like I just fucked someone in church. Not awesome, so yeah I would take my David’s Bridal over and Bridal Salon.

I went to two DBs… the first one wasn’t busy and I had the full attention of the consultant who helped me into and out of every dress… the second time I went (to a different DB) they were much more busy and I had to ask for help a lot of the time… But I went to a boutique and they didn’t even pull dresses for me- they had me do it! I think pretty much every expirience is different…

I’ve also been to two different DB’s and had two different experiences. The first was a drop-in (didn’t have an appointment), and they were very busy, so they were unable to help much. The consultant was visibly fatigued, and a bit hurried (but I can’t say I blame her, considering how busy they were). I was fine, since my sister was there to help. The second time, I made an appointment. This was at a different store, in a different state, on a week day. They weren’t very busy, and were very helpful. I think it just depends on the person, the location, or the day they’re having.

i had a great experience at david’s when i got my dress. i was dreading it first and foremost because i’m a larger gal and secondly, i’ve heard stories about DB plus remembered my sister’s experience there years ago but the girl was great. she was knowledgable, friendly, didn’t pressure me at all.  she asked me what my “vision” was and picked out some dresses based on that in addition to the couple that i wanted to try on. needless to say the ones i picked for myself looked terrible and the ones she picked looked amazing on me (if i do say so myself) Wink

I went to DB with my BM’s and the salesgirl was helping another girl as well as me at the same time. She didn’t have much time to help me in and out of my dresses, and thankfully I had my BM’s to help me with that! What really made it difficult though was the fact that every dress she brought was too small, to the point where it couldnt be fastened all the way, which of course made me look stuffed in the dresses! I just could not “feel’ the dresses in any way! I went to Alfred Angelo the week before, and the experience there was so much better! I was the only person the salesgirl was helping, and the dresses were big, but at least I could get a better idea of what they looked liked on me.

I would have to agree with you…. The 2 times i went to DB, having an appointment, they expected my friends to help me get into my dresses?!?! i was very not happy with service. First time i went on a Saturday, it was a very busy day, and i was like ok…but the second time, i went on a wednesday evening, it was slow…all of them were trying new 2010 dresses on. Let me tell you,  when i went to a different place and got treated like a bride, that is where i got my dress!
