I highly doubt they keep your dress just so other people can try it on. I bet it’s because they have 5,000 dresses that just arrive and they ALL need a final check. They have to check to make sure everything comes in right! Check the size, the paperwork, make sure it goes to the right person, etc

They definitely dont let other brides try on your dress.  They’re probably all booked up with other appointments, and the first available time they have for you to come in and try it on is Friday.  Remember, when you pick up you’re dress, they dont just hand it to you and you walk out.  You’ve got to try it on, check it over yourself, and if you’re having alterations done there, have the seamstress come measure for those.  All that takes time.

No need to worry 🙂

I agree with ejs, I doubt they are letting others try on the dress! They probably want to make sure all of the beading is correct and there aren’t any holes and stuff like that!

I don’t blame you — I wouldn’t want that happening either!

hmmmm not to alarm you, but i’ve read and heard of david’s doing this…

ive heard that they’ll “order” your dress only to get the sample from a nearby davids if they forget to order it, or are on a time crunch or if they cock up.

it sounds weird….but i would thoroughly check your dress before you leave davids when u pick it up to make sure there’s no funny business =)

but i’m a natural cynic too….so dont mind me 😉

I understand your concern, I am a little paranoid and all myself /giggles Not quite sure what I’d do in this situation though. Do you know of other places who sell this particular dress, that you maybe could call and check to see whether they could order one in for you in time for the wedding still? Then you have a backup plan in case you find your dress HAS been made a sample of the rack for a while.  Did you pay upfront for your dress or just a downpayment? Good luck and keep us posted!

If you have a size 2 girlfriend, have her go into the store and request if they happen to have style _______ in her size to try on.

Maybe in the cases that someone had found a size two – it HAD been ordered for someone but they had changed their minds and ordered something else and that store still ended up with the dress. I’m pretty sure Davids has an exchange policy (that you can exchange your dress for up to a certain period of time).

It could be that the store wanted to keep that particular style of dress in a size 2 because they get a lot of requests for it but aren’t normally supplied with a sample size 2. I wouldn’t freak out too much about it, but definitely check it for makeup etc.
