Unfortunately, I almost worked for David’s and it’s a bad deal. The girls make minimum wage. They make a very small percentage of commision…so unfortunately lots of brides who are just looking tend to feel overwhelmed and bullied at David’s.

I went to David’s and HATED the atmosphere, so I bought my dress at a local dress shop and had a WONDERFUL experience with kind, loving ladies.

Just chin up and maybe try on that other dress again, it could be the one 🙂

It’s just DB. Go somewhere else. DB dresses are not as high quality and neither is their customer service. Unless you fall in love with something there, I say go somewhere else and talk them down in price. That’s what I did. I got an 1100$ dress for 850$ whereas a DB dress would’ve been only a couple hundred less. It’s worth the extra money to buy something you love, from a place that you LOVE.

I just had the greatest experience at DB.  I walked in looking for a TTD dress at their 99 dollar sale.  I saw them unpacking a brand new dress, even though the manager knew I wasn’t going to be buying she let me try on the brand new dress and helped me into it.  It was so stunning, I bought it.  Maybe you had a bad salesperson, or that store is run poorly.

I’ve been to both David’s Bridal and Alfred Angelo. Alfred Angelo definitely has better customer service because their sales people are consultative in their approach. They really seem to care to hear about your theme, colors, etc. so that they can match it to you and your dress. David’s Bridal is the opposite, in my experience. Similar to you, they pointed me towards the catalog, asked for what I liked and pulled it from their racks for me. However, I did have a consultant help me in and out of dresses.

I wouldn’t be dissuaded by your experience at DB’s. I would however suggest you continue looking and maybe use the Alfred Angelo dress as your barometer for the others you try on.
