It sounds like they want you to try it on again or try another dress — think about it, they must get brides panicking every.single.day. They don’t want to lose a sale (plus, from what I’ve heard, you can’t outright cancel at David’s — or most other places). Sorry.

Honestly, my experience with DB was mostly them trying to up their sales; I only got my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there and they asked me on the day the BM’s were trying them on, “do you want to try on wedding gowns?” and I said, “no I already have mine, thank you.” That did not deter them.

They call approximately once a week, I have told them on two occassions to PLEASE STOP CALLING ME because I already have a dress I love and I am not looking for another one.  Just a heads up, they are all about sales.

If you do not LOVE the dress, try and get your $ back or cut your losses with your deposit.  It’s not worth another dress with dress regret.

they call me alot too and I also bough my dress from a private boutique but got my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from them and my accessories and Flower Girl dresses.

Just go back and try it on again, you never know you might be reassured

They are ANNOYING. I specifically asked them not to sell my information, checked the box on my form for them to leave me alone, and this morning, I got a call from some stupid company offering a bridal package if I come and sit through a 90 minute pots and pans presentation.

Give them a fake number if you want them to leave you alone!

And yes, they are all about the sales, and they won’t give you the best opinions. DB is the one place I would encourage bringing someone because I don’t trust the consultants at all.

STAND YOUR GROUND!!! I had major dress regret, too! I called them 2 or 3 days after I ordered mine, knowing fully that they had not started building my dress yet. I wanted them to cancel my order, but of course they “couldn’t.” They said that no matter what the dress company will still make the dress and they will have to pay for it. Bull $h!% !!  Thankfully, they let me come back in and try on other dresses, and they had the perfect dress for me! (Even though they seemed reluctant for me to get it). They “miraculously” still had the sample of the 1st dress I bought from the trunk show the previous weekend, so they had me try it on, even though I knew it was not the one for me at all! She kept it in my maybe pile forever, even though I didn’t return to it, not once! I had it narrowed down to 3 dresses that were similar, yet very different from the first one I bought. The sales people, who had been all “you look so beautiful” and “That is totally your dress” just days before seemed to be giving me the cold shoulder. Either way, I had my mom make sure that I left with the dress I wanted, not they one they wanted me to have, and that is what I got in the end. Don’t let them decide for you!!! Get what you feel is right!!

@MyLittleTurtleDove: Yeesh! :p Maybe you could request a different consultant? I shouldn’t generalize them. There are good consultants there too…it’s just hard to know who to ask for.

Seeing how I have been through this before I feel like they are just trying to get you in there to keep a sale. I tried to cancle a dress after having major regret the very next day and I couldnt get an answer. They really just wanted to get me in there to make sure they didnt lose the sale all together. I would just go in and stand your ground. Explain that you really know for sure its not the one and then discuss the other dress. No one likes doing more paperwork but be persistant. I think if you are picking another dress from the same store they should help you out.

I had bought mine there, brought it home, and then had regret.  I brought it back the following weekend and they allowed me to return it for credit, as long as it wasn’t stained, smelled like smoke, etc.  Since they can’t tell the condition over the phone, that may be why they wouldn’t give you a definite answer.
