I bought my wedding gown and did alterations through David's Bridal. My mother also purchased her gown and alterations here. Going in to try on dresses was extremely easy, and even though it is a busy store, I felt like the woman who helped me gave me her full attention. I like that they have a wide variety of dress styles and prices. The head of alterations was wonderful. My dress was difficult because it had tons of layers but she gave it the attention it required.
The one thing I don't like is how every purchase (even a ring pillow, garter, etc.) is final purchase. I bought a ring pillow and ended up not having a ring bearer, so I pretty much wasted $40.
Overall, though, I would recommend this store because of its simplicity and ease.

So I have to say, My Dress was gorgeous! It was a Vera Wang and Beautiful! Soon as I saw it online I wanted it! The dress was sold out but there was one left in the system and my girl worked so hard to find one, and she did in Florda and ordered it for me. I am a size 4 the dress was a 10, but they promissed me the seamstress could make it fit me and she did! The only negative thing I have to say, is there was a mistake and they took the top in too much around my chest. They were able to fix it in less then a week, but charged me to do so, where I thought they should had Fixed there mistake at no charge.

The service was nothing real special, just ordinary. When asked to steam and press the dress, there was a two week waiting period. Considering the prices, I would recommend searching online or other local businesses.

David's Bridal really surprised me in a great way. After looking in every fancy bridal boutique up and down the California coast for 'the dress' I found it in Bakersfield for next to nothing. Occassionally the ladies would be very busy and unhelpful, but that happens anywhere if you don't make an appointment... and goes to show the quality of attention they give to girls they are currently helping. Prices were unbelievable and all the dresses I tried on were well made. I loved how everyone who worked there rememberd and called me by name after my first visit, I was so happy and comfortable in the store, definitely worth going by!

Where to begin?? First off, this was my second wedding, so I didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a dress. They have hundreds of dresses for very reasonable prices so it is pretty easy to find a beautiful dress. And they do have financing, zero % if you pay it off in 6 months. However, here's the part they don't tell you about the financing...you have to make a minimum payment each month (most financing you don't), it's really difficult to set up payments on-line and my statements always came in the mail so close to the due date (with in two weeks) that even if I mailed it right away, it was late (it took 18 days according to them to get to them one time) so I had to pay late fees.

I ordered shoes that ended up not fitting and they won't take returns, even though the shoes were a style they had in stock, they just didn't have my size.

They were extremely difficult to work with! I don't think I'd do it again and they added more stress during an already stressful time.

The consultant was very nice. However, when I came in with dresses of interest printed out they expected me to find them! I felt a little confused and overwhelmed because all the dresses on the rack looked the same. Once she saw the look on my face, her and another girl found some of the dresses.
For alterations, the consultant had told me that it would probably cost me somewhere around $40 considering what had to be done. With this in mind, I show up for my alterations appointment and was totally blindsided with a quote of almost $300 for alterations. The seamstress acted as if that was reasonable.

Everything went fine except the altering prices & the fact that when my dress was supposed to be ready when I got there not once but twice it wasnt ready. Other then that it was a good place to get a dress. HUGE selection & great pricing for a dress. I would say get your dress altered somewhere else

The dress I selected was perfect for me. I loved it the minute I put it on. However, the staff and bridal consultant was less than attentive. I was advised to make an appointment to try on dresses so that I would have her undivided attention. When we arrived that night the music that was playing over head was hip-hop rap music. Hardly the type of music that should be played in a bridal store. It took more than 15 minutes to get the initial gowns I did select to the fitting room. Then it was an additional 15 to 20 minutes between gowns for her to help me change into a new one. Eventually, my mother took over and we handled it ourselves. The service was awful. When I went back a week later to order the gown and get it paid for, we stood around for nearly 30 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us being there, and we were standing at the front counter. I was so upset by the experience that my soon-to-be husband called the corporate office and spoke to a VP. He purchased the dress over the phone so that I didn't have to return to the store. I loved the dress, but will not do business with them ever again.

they failed to tell me how long it would take to order bridesmaid dresses until 2 months before my wedding when they then told me it was too late to order any dresses. They were rude inconciderate and unhelpful.

I actually live in Orange County but am from Bakersfield so I came into town to shop with my mother. They had a moderate selection of dresses available. The girl was very helpful but kept trying to steer me to the more expensive dress (commission?). I found the dress I like and purchased it. When I got home I realized that she had given me the one I had tried on, not a new one although I was specific about asking that question at the time I purchased it. I thoroughly checked the dress and there wasn't anything wrong with it other than a small bit of makeup on the inside so since I live 2 1/2 hours away I kept it but was not happy with that. The other thing is that I had the dress altered there and that added almost another $300.00 to the cost of the dress. My alteration were not excessive so I thought that was a bit expensive but didn't want to risk having someone other than David's alter it in case there was a problem. Overall I was happy but just a few things to consider.

Maria at David's Bridal was very very helpful. She helped but did not crowd. She gave me space to try on 10-12 dresses. She brought me the style I wanted and didn't try to push anything else. She was excited for me and my family when I found the perfect dress
