I bought my first dress from David’s Bridal, but I’m now selling it. David’s Bridal was actually a really good experience and my saleswoman was really awesome. She was always there right away with a new dress and because I brought in pictures of what I wanted she was very good at finding the exact dress and similar ones. The dress came in 3 months early in perfect condition, no problems at all! I just didn’t love the dress anymore especially after I had some cosmetic surgery. So when I began hunting for my second dress I went to CC’s Boutique in St. Pete because it’s close to work. Well, I didn’t find them to be very helpful to be honest. The woman helping me was kind of flaky and even kept me waiting outside in the heat for 5 minutes while she took a personal phone call. The had a good range of dresses and let me look on my own though, so I had a friend help me out instead of the saleswomen. Then I went to Olga’s Bridal in Tampa and Olga herself helped me! I went when they opened on a saturday and there wasn’t anyone else in the store. They had the exact dress I was looking for and their prices were pretty good. I ended up buying the dress online from another bridal shop because their price was $170 less than what Olga’s wanted. The experience there was great. So I would recommend David’s Bridal (if only to get an idea of what style you want since they have just about every kind of dress) and Olga’s Bridal! Good luck!!

I had the same experience at Clearwater’s DB – glad you went to CC’s! I went there to look for bridesmaid dresses and they were SO helpful. My best friend got her gown there too – I was just afraid they would be way out of my price range! I’m glad you found one that works for you!

I actually just bought my dress tonight! I bought it at Formalities Bridal in Lakewood Ranch. The owner, Lisa, is AMAZING. Seriously. I have been one of the neediest brides ever, and she has been so good to me! I HIGHLY recommend her shop!
