I just got home from shopping and…. I FOUND MY DRESS! Yay! It’s a Galina PK3357 from David’s Bridal and it’s perfect. I actually went with intentions of getting a short dress and although I loved the short ones I tried on, when I saw this dress it just spoke to me (silly I know). As soon as I walked out of the dressing room, I knew it was the one. It’s fun and light and moves with you when you walk and most importantly, I feel COMFORTABLE and PRETTY in this dress which is huge when you’re a plus-size girl. It’s so perfect for our “planned elopement” to St. Augustine in May and I can’t wait to stand beisde the bay and have it blowing in the wind 🙂 And the best part? I can wear flip-flops and no one will ever know, haha… but seriously.
I know DB gets a bad rep sometimes and honestly, some stores deserve it. However, when you’re on a budget with limited options in your area, you have to make the best of what you have available and thankfully my appointment went flawlessly. It wasn’t crowded, my consultant was so sweet, and I never once felt like I was being rushed or forced into a decision. My experience was great and I hope that other bees have a fabulous experience as well when visiting your local David’s Bridal!
Sorry the photos are so big! And trust me when I say that crappy cell phone pictures do NOT do this dress justice — it’s so pretty and flirty and it looks way more sophisticated in person.

Beautiful! I bought my dress (a Galina Signature!) at David’s as well and have had nothing but great experiences at my appointments and dealing with their staff. We did our bridesmaid dresses their as well and everything went completely smoothly.

I tried on some dresses at David’s and it was totally fine! My two favorites were both Galinas 🙂
Looks great on you!

@iheartmarshall: Hey Congrats on finding your dress at DB, it is very cool and looks great!
I also bought my dress from David’s and it was a Galina Signature. It was $750. I just went back and bought bridal shoes there too and they were $35 with my discount. I had originally planned to break the bank on a Vera Wang dress that I loved but now I am so glad I didn’t do that! I too had a very good experience at David’s, nice bridal consultant who was helpful, and they even helped me with my shoes when I went back!

I love the dress! Congrats on the positive shopping experience, too!
I am also a full-figured bride and had a positive shopping experience. I went to Alfred Angelo and bought the second dress I tried on. The sales associate was really nice and didn’t make me feel self-conscious at all when she helped me into the gowns.

Pretty dress, seems perfect for your wedding. I’ve read some horror stories about DB but I was just looking at their website the other day and their new dresses are BEAUTIFUL, definitelychanged my mind a little bit

It looks gorgeous on you! I love seeing other brides who have gotten their dresses at DB and had great experiences! My one bridesmaid turned her nose up at DB but they have been super nice and helpful at every appointment- even the times I went in just to try my dress on and I wasn’t even buying anything. My dress is a Galina too by the way!

I had a pretty great experience at David’s, also. I planned ahead and decided to go on a weekday when it was less crowded. I think it’s a great place to go because they have SOOOOO many options as far as style and budget. I ended up going with a boutique bridal store where I absolutely fell in love with the dress, but I don’t understand why David’s gets such a bad rap. It may not be the Klienfeld’s experience, but whatever.
Congratulations on finding your dress, you look beautiful!

I am SO happy I went to David’s Bridal first, because that is the BEST customer service I have EVER received. I love their dresses, their prices, and their employees. 5 stars!
