OOOH That’s so exciting! 

Davids bridal seems to be hit and miss depending on your location.  I went there once, and it was alright, but ended up finding a dress elsewhere.  My consultant didn’t pressure me, but I know some doe. 

Welcome to WB!

@2bMrsG: Wear a strapless bra, try on everything even if you don’t think you’ll like it- you never know what you might end up liking! TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES! A dress can translate very differently in the mirror and in a picture….Give yourself lots of options. Don’t take too many people.

I had an “eh” experience at DB, it was more about their poor customer service and then after we did all the work then swooping back in at the last minute and pressuring me at the end of the appointment to buy it. But that could be a location thing, who knows.

Most important, HAVE FUN!

Good luck!

Just have fun. I did not buy a gown there but I did go there first to look around a little even though I kind of knew I would not be buying a gown from them.

 tried on like 8 dresses there. They are really nice….at least that was my experience!I wanted a designer gown, that was the only reason I did not purchase from them. The service was very good so that was def not my resoning to go elsewhere.

Just have a good time!

ooooh, how fun! Don’t let anyone (salespeople, family and friends) pressure you into buying your dress. I recommend thinking of all your contender dresses over for a night or two before you decide on THE ONE. Have a good time!

DB didn’t pressure me but I wasn’t impressed with my experience. I hated all the dresses I tried on. I especially hated how my sales lady kept putting things on my head without my permission! It was SOOOOO obnoxious! She’d put hideous tiaras on me, ugly veils, etc etc. You’re lucky you had such a great experience! I think it totally depends on who you get as a salesperson.

@2bMrsG: Can’t wait to see pics!
