I was hesitant to find a dress at Davids Bridal, but I decided to start there on my dress search to find a good jumping off point. Luckily, all the employees I encountered were wonderful and helpful! I ended up working with Lisa to find my dress. I showed her several options that I liked online first, and she jumped off from there to grab dresses she thought I'd like (some of the dresses I showed her were not in store at all so I never go to try those). Come to find out, the dresses I liked in the pictures were NOT suited for my body type at all! Lisa ended up finding "the" dress, and I was sold. My appointment was on a Wednesday night so I had almost the whole store to myself, nice and quiet, and more than one employee came to watch and give me encouraging words. Lisa was also able to stick with me the whole time, I did not have to share her with any other appointments at my same time! The dress took 2-3 weeks to come in, which was faster than I had anticipated.

I also used this location for my dress alterations. The first fitting was fast but the seamstress (I never got her name, sadly) was very helpful and efficient. She never asked for my opinion on how I wanted my dress bustled, but rather she took the style of the dress and automatically pinned it in the best way, which looked beautiful. It took a month for the alterations to be finished, and at my second and final fitting, it was perfect! I will say alterations cost more than I thought, but for having them back up their work, it was worth it. I did have an issue with the veil I purchased; some of the edge beading had fallen off. Luckily the seamstress replaced them for free with some strong craft glue.

My advice is if you try to always make your appointments during the week, the staff is very friendly, accommodating and helpful. I avoided it during the weekends, other than having to go to the Research Blvd location to pick up my veil, which was horribly crowded on a Saturday afternoon.

My review is for the North Austin store which isn't listed on this site for some reason! I went to David's Bridal twice before finding my dress. The first time, I schedule an appointment, and the girl only brought maybe 7 dresses to try on. It was an hour before closing time, so people were cleaning around us while trying on dresses. They also kept pulling our girl away to answer phones and do other tasks which made the experience disappointing. Her last day was a few days later, so she kept asking if I'd make a decision before then, presumably to receive her commission. I left without a dress but had one in mind.

The second time I went back, I wound up choosing a different dress entirely. Julia was our girl, and she was really great. I was a little annoyed with the manager of the store who when knowing my budget was still suggesting going over when she could sense I had some hesitancy. I'm a less traditional bride and have been with my now-husband for more than 10 years...so spending gobs of money on a dress for one night wasn't on the top of my list. I was a little surprised at how much the alterations cost (more than the dress!!), but they were speedy and did a great job. Sefrika was the alterations woman I worked with, and she knows her fits/dresses.

I would recommend people going to David's to try on a lot of dresses at different price points, but I wouldn't single it out as the only store I'd shop.

I went there with my Mother In Law & Sister in Law expecting to spend hours there but was only there for less than an hour. I instantly found the dress that I was looking for and decided to go with the first and only dress that I ever tried on. All of the employees were very friendly and complimented me in my wedding dress, even saying jokes such as I was the easiest bride to come into the store. The dress I found was a lovely beaded lace with a v shaped back line and a beautiful train, exactly the dress that I had envisioned for our wedding. It was a reasonable price as well and my mother in law was shocked at the expense thinking she was going to spend way more on the dress that she had thought.

Great place, only wonderful things to say!

I went into Davids Bridal on a Sunday about 30 minutes before they closed. I had been in there earlier in the day with a bridesmaid looking at dresses for her and was not finding anything I liked that would go with the wedding dress that I was going to borrow from a friend. I started to freak out later in the day over everything. When I went back to Davids Bridal that evening the lady that I was working with helped me find a few dresses in different styles to try on. After about 5 dresses, some I never even got fully on, I have found 2 that I really liked. The next day I went up there with a different bridesmaid to look at different options for bridesmaid dresses and had pretty much decided which of the 2 I wanted. The lady that helped me on Sunday was off on Monday. However, she came in Monday to help me out. We had a little trouble finding the dress at first because it was not put up where it should have been. I tried the dress on again and I KNEW at that moment that was my dress. My wedding was planned on a very small budget and the price of the dress was marked down over $100 less than the dress was marked the day before. All my bridesmaids got there dresses from Davids Bridal and I also have my bustle done at Davids Bridal.

Extremely unorganized. At several times couldn't find my wedding dress. I was also in a friends wedding and they lost my bridesmaid dress. They never called the actual person whos dress was ready and would threaten to send back dresses because they couldn't get their act together and just call the person who the bridesmaid dress belonged to. Extremely unorganized and glad I'm not getting married again. Don't know if I would use them again by choice
