I am from Flordia too! I had ‘meh’ experiences at Davids Bridal too, but i went to an alfred angelo store, found the dress of my dreams (street size 18-20) and had a wonderful experience! I def. reccomend that you try them!

@bluebelle23:  Not a stupid question. The signature stores are the ones that only carry Alfred Angelo dresses. It looks like the 3 stores in Houston would all be considered signature stores.

The Jade Shoppe would be a bridal shop that carries Alfred Angelo in addition to other designers.

@StarryNight2011:  Thanks!  Just checking! πŸ™‚  Might have to make a trip to H-town.

 

I agree, the first one is fabulous.  I’m gonna save the pic myself, although I’m not sure about the skirt.

@KBScarlett:  Don’t sweat it!  I’m a street size 16, too, and am a little nervous about dress shopping (I’m going at the end of this month, actually!)  But I’ve seen SO MANY beautiful plus-sized brides here on Weddingbee that I’m confident I’ll be able to find a dress that makes me feel beautiful, too!

By The Way, I love the first two dresses you have listed!  I’m saying no to the strapless, too (which is kind of hard since strapless dresses are kind of dominating the wedding world right now!)  I’m sure you’ll look fabulous on your big day!

I too bought my dress here at David’s bridal in Mass. I wear a 14-16 and my dress was a 20 BUT in needs to be taken in by two inches on my waist, I’m also 5’10. My dress is featured on my profile picture. I felt like a Queen and I knew my dress was the one! David’s bridal made me feel really great when I went there and they NEVER made me feel bad at all. Good luck on your dress πŸ™‚

I went to davids bridal, there was only ONE dress there that I liked, but I wasn’t quite sold on it. Overall I found their selection of plus sized dress sub-par. They had 1 in my size [18], even though I’ll have to go into a 20 due to my large bust size, and have the waste sized down. I either had to squeeze into a 16 or go bigger to try them on! Horrible experiance. I would much rather order my dress custom them get it sized as need be.
