I have been reading many board posts in the last few months and have finally decided to join because I need some honest expert opinions from people that has been there. Most of my friends do not live close to me so I haven’t been able to chat about some things that matter..like the dress 😛
I know I should have started the dress quest earlier (my wedding is in 4 months) but I haven’t. So I am concerned that once I go to my app at David’s Bridal (in two weeks because I live in a different city) I won’t be able to order the dress I like., although I am open to taking one off the rack (if it looks in good condition). Do you have any idea on shipping/order time for the dress to arrive (I like Vera’s White and Oleg’s collecton)? If I need to take it off the rack, do you know if they have a lot of stock int the store (because I know they will not sell the last one they have)?
Also, I am on a diet (like many brides :P) and will likely loose 10 to 15 pounds by the time I am done. Yet when I try the dress I probably have only lost 5 to 7. Is it risky to order to thedress in the size it fits when I have the app? I think this is better, because it can always be altered to be smaller?
Any experiences with altering a dress after loosing weight? Are there dresses that are harder or tricker to alter?
Sorry for all the long list of questions!!!!
Thoughts? Recomendations?? HElp girlas!!!

I didn’t personally purchase from DB but a friend of mine ordered her dress there. It was a beautiful Oleg Cassini dress. She ordered it and picked it up 2-3 weeks later. Turn around time was really fast!

If you go to davidsbridal.com, you can get a dress shipped overnight if you needed to. I am not sure if it is available for every style and you will need to pay for the shipping, but it may be something to look into!

I walked out of DB with my dress in hand the day I tried it on — and it wasn’t a floor sample; it was a brand new in-a-bag dress that they had in the back. I’m not sure how many they keep in stock like that, but there are definitely a good amount! And as PP said, their turnaround time for orders is pretty quick. You should be fine!

You guys rock! Thank you so much.
I talked to them about the size and the fact that I have lost weight by the time I actually get it, and she recommend it I would order it on my current size and once I get it I can alter it (particularly because it might take a while to get to me)….
thanks again bees! I will keep u posted!
