While I didn't purchase my wedding gown here, I did choose my bridesmaids dresses at this store. I was very disappointed that there weren't any bridal shops that carried bridesmaids dresses in the color I wanted. The only shop I found in downtown Chicago that carried the color I wanted was $300 per dress. I felt this was too expensive for a dress my bridesmaids would most likely wear only once so I looked elsewhere which led me to David's. I chose a completely different color but I grew to love it all the same. I went with "truffle" which is a rich, dark brown with almost a hit of purple/red in it, and it was a strapless cotton sateen dress. Our experience with the bridesmaids dresses was pretty good although I felt the salesperson was rather pushy... trying to rush me into a decision by scaring me that I might not get them in time even though we were shopping several months in advance and we actually got the dresses roughly a month later... so I didn't like that she was trying to scare me into the purchase, but we still ended up ordering them the next day. My bridesmaids really liked the hidden pockets on the dress.

Also, I had stopped in to look at shoes for my daughter, my flower girl, and possibly my two hostesses. Not only was their selection pretty limited at this store, and lacking many sizes, but some of the shoes were actually dirty, ripped, and worn... I thought this was pretty gross. I thought maybe there was some mistake so I asked one of the workers and they told me that they were available to purchase and were just old... well, I don't care how long something has been sitting on the shelf, it shouldn't look the way those shoes did.

I went to try on dresses here for the first time, not expecting to find the one but the ladies there did such a great job of narrowing down my likes and dislikes that I found the one. This was not the dress that I felt the most normal in, it was the dress I felt like a princess in!!! I would have never picked it for myself as it was a one shoulder but apparently they knew my body type better than me because it was gorgeous. They also took in the side for me 6 months before the wedding as I live overseas. Even without trying it on until a few days before the wedding, it fit perfectly. Also my $800 dress was on sale for $200...amazing!!!

My dress was supposed to come in three weeks before the wedding. The staff was very good keeping me up to date on where it was in the process of being made and shipped. They even offered to overnight it if it did come three weeks before the wedding. It ended up coming in a month early!

I loved working with the sales team. They were very enthusiastic and dedicated to helping me find my dress. I found exactly what I wanted and it was a lot less than my budget. The only problem I had was when I went for my fittings. The alterations lady was very good at what she does, but her people skills could use some help. She would get up and disappear in the middle of our appointment. I wasn't crazy about that.

Kendra was great, others there - not so much. That being said, their service was much better than other bridal stores I went to. I loved my dress and received tons of compliments on it. I just wish they would have told me when I ordered it that I could have added length to it so I could have worn heels! (I am very tall, lol). Pricing was not bad for my dress or the Bridal party dresses.

I absolutely loved working with Kim at the Aurora/Naperville store...she was fantastic. My only issue was the first dress I liked online was not in that store for me to try on (I'm plus size) so I needed to travel up north about one hour away to a store to try that design on. I received great customer service in Naperville and I wanted to continue to work with Kim, but even though I told the woman at the other store I was only there to try on one dress and I was working with Kim, she was very pushy about trying to get me to purchase from her. She told my bridesmaid who is 5'11" that the dress I picked did not come in extra length, but if she went up a size the dress would be a little longer. We found out later that was absolutely untrue!

I'm giving only three stars for flexibility because while I wanted to purchase the dress from Kim, the store told me they did not have my exact size and I would need to purchase the smaller size and then spend about $300 having a corset added to the dress so it would fit. Thankfully I chose to think about it and when I looked at David's Bridal online, they had my size in stock. I went back to the store to tell them it was instock online and I was told the inventory online is not the inventory available to the store. What? So....I ended up purchasing my dress online. I will also tell you that while I was in the store in February I was told I should purchase a dress by the end of February to have it in time and altered by my October wedding. Well....I purchased my dress online and I had it in 5 DAYS!

I gave three stars for value because I found the estimates for alterations to be outrageous. I ended going with my hair dressers mother who has been a seamstress for over 40 years. Much more reasonable! I did not give less stars for value because the dress I fell in love with happened to be on sale and $499. I cannot complain about buying a wedding dress for $500 that I and other people loved.

We showed up for my appointment 1 1/2 hours early and were met with a friendly "no problem" attitude. We were asked to look around while they figured out which consultant could see us and luckily we got Todd. He was awesome. From the very beginning he closely listened to exactly what I said I wanted and brought me dress after dress after asking me specifically what I liked and disliked about each one. Turns out, the first one he pulled for me was THE ONE. I never felt pressured or rushed, just genuine interest in helping me find my dress. He and the manager helped with suggestions on how I could customize the dress to make it more me and even helped find the veil. I would highly recommend a visit to this store. I will say the first impression when you walk in the door is that the store is a bit run-down, but the dresses were very nicely cared for (some other stores had worn out tattered samples) and the staff were excellent!

I have never been the type to shop around a lot once I find something I like, and David's Bridal was no different. I went in for the first time with a couple friends, and brought some pictures that I had torn out of magazines to show Jennie, my consultant, what I was looking for. The first dress she showed me was the dress that I got married in! I tried on a couple that I liked, but when I tried on the dress, it was a totally different feeling. I knew it was the one, and Jennie made me feel so comfortable while I was trying it on!

My mom and sister came a couple days after I had first tried it on, I wanted there opinion before I purchased the dress. When I walked in for my second appointment, Jennie came over and gave me a huge hug!! She was soooo nice and made me feel like a princess. She was great with my mom and sister, too, who ended up trying on Bridesmaid dresses and a MOTB dress without appointments. She couldn't have been more helpful. Once I knew that I had found the dress, they did the David's Bridal ritual that made me feel like a true bride. It was wonderful.

After I purchased the dress, I lost a lot of weight and when I went to try it on for my first fitting, it was way too big. The store offered to let me try on a different size, and once we found that a different size worked better, they were able to put a rush on the order and assured me that it would be in in time. I still needed quite a lot of altering, which truth be told, ended up being more expensive that I anticipated. I ended up paying over $250 for the alterations, even after I ordered a different size dress. I did, however, order a very detailed dress that I'm sure was no walk in the park to alter. After the alterations were complete, the dress truthfully fit like a glove!!!!! It was absolutely PERFECT!!

The whole staff at the store is wonderful, and I recommend it to everyone!
