@HUstrawberry:  This is horrible, I am sorry this happened to you. I went to some horrible appointments as well but I eventually got my dress from a small shop where they treated me wonderfully. You will find your perfect dress and marry you perfect man and the rest wont matter!

I’m so sorry you had a bad experience.  🙁  If it makes you feel better, David’s Bridal consistantly gets poor reviews online, so don’t let yourself think it has anything to do with your size as I can guarantee you it doesn’t.  I was on a pretty tight budget when I was looking for my dress and I’m not a small girl either, so what I ended up doing was making appointments with some higher quality bridal salons so that I could try on dresses and get an idea what styles I liked, what looked good on me, what I should avoid, etc.  Once I had a better idea what I was looking for in a dress, I went back to David’s Bridal and told the sale’s people that I didn’t want any help and that I would look around the store on my own.  They were fine with that.  I did bring my mom and my sister with me though so they could help me in and out of dresses.  I ended up finding a dress I liked with no help from a sale’s person, bought it and went home fairly quickly.  No hassle 🙂  Consider giving something like that a try.  Don’t give up hope because of one bad experience, you’re bound to have more positive experiences at other stores.

I’m so sorry you were treated so badly!!!! 

Forget about them…don’t let them get to you!!

If going to shops to try on dresses get discouraging… perhaps you can try ordering it online? Not the very cheap dress shops..but somewhere more trustable like dressilyme or jasmine’s bridal? They custom make to your measurements, so there won’t be worries of not fitting.

It is YOUR wedding, your day! No matter what you WILL be the most beautiful person at your wedding! Your Fiance obivously thinks you’re amazing~ heck, he’s marrying you! So forget about what everyone else thinks…it don’t matter!

You find the dress of your dreams and have the wedding of your dreams!

Aww! I’m sorry you had a bad time! I went to one David’s Bridal in Atlanta and the people there were rude and it was packed. I went to the one in two smaller towns and the people were really nice and treated me and everyone with me really well. I dunno if that was a factor for you. I hope you find your perfect dress!
