Did you have an appointment? Most bridal salons require appointments so that is likely why you didn’t get a better level of service. 

BUT they still should have said hi, asked if you had an appointment and if not, scheduled one for you.

My suggestion when dress shopping for the first time is going to David’s Bridal and trying on one dress in each silhoutte. Just to get an idea of what looks right on your body type. Then go from there. What you think you want is probably the opposite of what you’ll end up with.

Agreed with scheduling a dress appointment, but avoid weekends if you are going to DB as consultants are often over-booked.

“I am looking for a dress that is not heavy and big.”

@JJSoon2bwife14:  Try go to a retailer that carries Stephanie James Couture or Oleg Cassini.

Another store to try is Alfred Angelo. I got fantastic service there, better than DB because AA is by appointment only. It’s one bride per consultant. When I went to DB my consultant was juggling 2+ brides. I felt a bit rushed. I am not against DB but was unhappy with the service.

@JJSoon2bwife14:  I’ve never had good luck at David’s Bridal, and I’ve been to a few different locations across the country. I’ll echo and say that you should call somewhere and make an appointment. It wasn’t right of the salon to ignore you at all, so I would steer clear of them.
