They will try and get you set up, but it is all sale orientated. They never know what will be avible in Alaska and rarly have a good selection of samples to try on.

I was on internship in Alaska and my family was in Minnesota so I went with Davids Bridal as they are universal and have multiple locations. The Alaska location was newly opened so I went there to find my dress. The store The consultant was very pushy (i'm not sure if they are commissioned but it sure seemed like it) and she was rushing me to go fast. The store was a circus with people everywhere (you do not need an appointment). I had made an appointment and found my consultant absent several times. This was most disgusting as I had taken the time to schedule and was not even guaranteed a consultant. While it was bad as my mom had to pull things it ended up working out as without the pushy, and upleasant consultant I was able to relax and actually enjoy myself. I wasn't pleased with the quality of the dresses. The fabrics just felt thin and cheap to me but I eventually found one.

I purchased my gown from David's Bridal and it was the Oleg Cassini CWG377. My sales associate, Chloe, was very helpful and attentive to my wishes. I had brought in magazine cut-outs of dresses I liked and she pulled many that she felt would fit my wants and needs. When I would put on a gown she helped me in pointing out what did and didn't work with my body, and once she pulled out the CWG377 I knew it would be perfect! We did purchase the dress that day, but did not feel any pressure from her to do so. I know many people have different opinions on David's Bridal, but my experience was a pleasureful one and my gown was beautiful!

I have not had an entirely easy time working with Davids Bridal. I found my dress on the first visit but felt a little rushed to purchase it right that second. I was initially told that I needed to buy it right then (almost a full year out from my wedding) because it would take close to five months to get shipped to the store. I was talked into buying a size larger than I needed because Gia, my consultant, put me in the wrong undergarment which made it look like I had fat rolls where I in fact do not. Not only did she convince me to buy the larger dress but she also sold my bewildered mother the ill fitting undergarment as well. When I went to pick up my dress (a mere two weeks later, not five months) I was in tears when I tried it on. I had an $80 bra that showed in the back of the dress and cut into my back and such an ill fitting dress that it barely resembled the beautiful one I remembered trying on. Thanks to some help from the alterations lady I now have the correct size dress and am applying the cost of that wretched bra towards alterations but overall, I am not terribly pleased.
The dress is beautiful though and came at a wonderful price which is the only reason I continue to work with this shop at all.

Extremely pushy sales girl pressures you on a NON REFUNDABLE/NON EXCHANGABLE purchase for one.. Offers all kinds of incentives, discounts, deals for buying your wedding dress there.. but they are LIEs and misrepresentations! offers discount on bridesmaid dresses but fails to mention that your discount does NOT apply if they already have it marked down, (so where the hell is the incentive to purchase a $800 gown from them?!) they also pressured me to buy a gown too big, and now I see that it is so you have to come back and spend another $200 for alterations, a big sheisty scam.. they also LIE about you get a discount on all tux rentals from mens wearhouse, well, its total bs because they claim the discount is already in the price... so, any ol joe can come in and rent a tux at you "promised discounted price". they offer NO consolation or anything at all to make things better, they are absolutely 100% profit oriented and 0% customer satisfaction oriented! they could care less about their customers, only about whats in their wallet!!

David's Bridal did an excellent job of helping me select the most perfect dress for my wedding. The store was clean, organized, and fun to shop in. The sales lady who helped me, Gia, was extremely helpful and guided me to making the right choice for my wedding dress and helped me stay with in budget. The store carries a wide range of dresses in a wide range of sizes. I would recommend David's Bridal in Anchorage to all future brides.

I didn't have a very pleasant experience with the David's Bridal in Anchorage. I made it very clear to the consultant that I was on a budget and didn't want to spend over $400. She said she wouldn't show me any dresses over $400 which was so weird because all the dresses she showed me were over $400! I didn't want to be rude so I didn't say anything about that but I wish I would have now. It was very obvious that she was more interested in making a commission because at one point she showed me a $1,200 dress! I also emphasized that I the one part of my wedding dress that I really want is a sweetheart neckline. She told me that any dress can pretty much be altered into a sweetheart neckline, including the one I bought. When it came time to alter my dress, the alteration lady told me that they could only pinch the neckline and it probably would look less flattering. I truly felt like I was deceived because I've always dreamt of having a sweetheart neckling for my wedding dress and now I've just found out that it wasn't really possible with the dress I bought. Some of the staff is friendly, while others are quite rude. I think being friendly should be a requirement if you want to be a consultant. I would only recommend David's bridal to someone who can't afford a more expensive dress, but I would advise her to be very persistent and assertive. Don't let them take advantage of you!

I was shocked that I found my dress here... I really thought I would got to some hip boutique to find my perfect gown but I tried this dress on and had a "moment". I felt wonderful, beautiful and every other great sounding adjective in my dress. I had my fitting and alterations and everything went flawlessly. I would definitely reccomend them to anyone!

I didn't think I would find my wedding dress at David's Bridal, so I was surprised when I found 4 that I fell in love with! What also added to my wonderful experience was my wedding gown consultant Gia Smith. She was like the awesome consultants you see on the TV wedding channels. She was super bubbly, outgoing, and was so much fun to work with. She understood my style and brought back a bunch of gowns that I loved. My first time trying on dresses we had a great time and she encouraged me to try on dresses that were not what I had in mind just to see if there was anything about them that I liked. After purchasing my wedding gown, I came in numerous times with my bridesmaids to help them pick out their dresses and every time I saw Gia she remembered me and was her same friendly self. If you go to try on wedding gowns and make an appointment before you go in, ask for Gia!

My first experience with David's Bridal was not a good one. The lady who was helping me pick out my wedding dress was rude, unprofessional, and did not make it the happy experience that it should have been. Luckily, the manager saw how she treated myself and those with me and apologized for it and said she would talk with her about her behavior. After that, all of my other experiences at David's Bridal were great ones. The other ladies I worked with were absolutely wonderful and made going there a great experience. Myself and all the women in my bridal party, including my flower girl, looked fabulous! I also got my bridesmaid's dress for the wedding of my friend there. Again, it was a great experience working with the ladies there.

I visited this store twice. I tried to change my consultant my second visit because she wasn't attentive the first time, but she was pretty insistent that I stay with her. We did end up finding the dress on my second visit on the first try on. Alterations were more than I expected over $200, but they did do an excellent job bringing dress up a few inches as well as do 7 ties for the bustle. I went to four stores total, so I was glad to finally get the perfect dress for me.

As compared to the other popular wedding dress shop that is way overpriced and had no dresses in my size (2-4), I would say that it was definetly worth it to go to David's Bridal. The fabric may not be as high of quality, but its only for one day! and nobody can tell. very friendly service and patient. I had tried on about 30 dresses to realize the one i wanted was one of the very first. The lady who does the dress altering is absolutely wonderful, helpful in ideas for the wedding and had wonderful ideas and addings to make my wedding dress pop! Although the bummer part is that you do have to make appointments, they dont accept walk-ins really, and because they can be busy, you may have to leave for their next appointment to come in. but the wedding dress I received from there was the perfect one, like bell on beauty of the beast, I felt like a princess. and at a great, i mean great price!

Very helpful when in a hurry. They accidently misquoted the price of the dress I chose when trying it on but when purchasing I thought I would have to give up the dress of my dreams but they gave me the lower price acknoledging their mistake. Very helpful and courteous staff.

Very nice to work with. They do have a lady that works in the alteration department that was rude to my bridesmaids. I feel like I was 'taken' with my bustle though. That same lady in the alteration department 'created' my bustle as a one of a kind and she went way overboard and charged me for every single snap and loop she put into it. I was told at my initial fitting that it would cost $100 at the most to alter my dress. It ended up to be almost $300. I would recommend David's Bridal to purchase your dress, but not to alter it.

I loved my dress! I was everything I had hoped for! The only down sides were that I didn't get to keep my first 'helper' as you would call them. She was great. But after she moved it was tough to stay with just one lady to help, I was bounced from attendant to attendant. And the alterations lady was awesome! She was flexible and did a great job doing my bustle!

I was not impressed with my sales consultant... she brought out dress after dress that didn't fit my requests... although she also finally brought out the dress that was THE ONE! She didn't give me very many options. I spent more on my dress than I intended plus the VERY expensive alterations... but it turned out beautifully. I would not recommend buying one of their veils -- priced between $135 and $200+ they are over priced for what they are. My maid of honor/best friend and I went to JoAnne's Fabrics and spent $20 and made a beautiful veil!

The alterations manager, Faye, more than made up for any of my initial misgivings about the sales consultant. She was professional, fun, and very creative. Although I paid significantly more for my alterations than I intended, the dress could not have been more beautiful!!! I would recommend buying a dress from this vendor if only for the opportunity to work with Faye again!!
