I KNEW it was David’s! As soon as I saw the thread title I knew.

I feel like a shitty trip to David’s Bridal is kind of a rite of passage for a bride these days.

@laustin85:  Of course! And I totally get what you mean by the wedding dress shopping would cheer you up — that salesperson totally violated what should have been a really wonderful experience for you. I’m so sorry that happened — I agree with other posters that you should tell the manager about it — you could even send them a link to this thread, if you wanted.

I had a bridal store clerk tell me that I needed to lose weight and I was too fat for the dress I wanted. Talking to the manager made a huge difference.

Think about some grief counseling. I have suffered many losses in my short life and therapy has helped a lot.

That’s great that you have the counseling. I know that therapy is no replacement for your mother, but at least there is that support.

I’m so sorry that you’ve had so much happen, so quickly! None of my grandparents are alive, and my dad passed away when I was 9. I thought I had come to grips with the fact that he wouldn’t be there to walk me down the isle.. but here I am 15 years later and I’ve spent a lot of time crying about it. I can’t even imagine losing someone so close to my wedding. Especially my mom. Girl, I’m praying hard for you! I hope you feel some sense of comfort very soon. As for the dress, I didn’t have a great experience at DB either. I got my dress at Alfred Angelo. Try not to stress. You will find a dress and I will be perfect.
