I was able to find my perfect gown quickly with the assistance of the David's Bridal staff. I found a very affordable dress for under $450. The fitting staff were not the most friendly bunch, but they got the job done. They were able to alter the dress to fit me and also added bra cups for a good price. My dress was beautiful, and that's really all I cared about!

I will never recommend Davids Bridal to anyone seeking a wedding dress. When picking out my dress, they indicated that I should not go down any dress sizes...I told them that I would in fact lose at least 10 pounds before my wedding due to an increase in my activity level. So once the dress came in and I went in for my first fitting, I could not wear the dress without holding it up. I had to get 3 different alterations. One alteration time, they messed up and failed to put me down in their book. FYI their alteration prices are RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. I ended up paying almost $300 for alterations!!! After speaking with some of my fellow friends who also went through David's they too had nothing but problems.

First, I love love love my dress, it was perfect. However, at Davids bridal, i felt that after they sold me the wedding dress, they no longer cared about me as a customer, they had my money and that was it. i got my bridesmaid dresses from here as well because of the discount, and i felt like the bridal parties of 8 and 10 people were getting much more attention than we were with 2 bridesmaids because they were making more money off of them which was very annoying! overall not very good customer service and the alterations department sucks and is way overpriced, take your dresses somewhere else!

I got a wonderful dress for a great price. Also my bridesmaids got wonderful dresses for very cheap! The only thing I would have liked to see changed was about 2 months before the wedding I tried my dress on and it was a little too big. I would have liked to exchange it for a size smaller. They said that they could alter it rather than exchanging it. I was not going to pay another $100 when a smaller size would have been fine.

I LOVED my dress--I went in and tried on some dresses a few weeks after my fiance proposed, because I wanted to get some ideas for the friend I had lined up to make my dress. That ended up being diastrous, and I found out exactly four months before the wedding that she wasn't going to be able to do it after all. I was able to set up an appointment at David's just a few days later, and I got the same consultant who brought out the same dresses I had tried on the first time. She was great! When I tried on the second one, I knew it was the one, and I got it that day. The size was absolutely perfect--I am tall, so it didn't need to be hemmed or taken in at all. The only alterations it needed was for the bustle, but that was set up and done quickly. So, after my initial panic at the four-month mark, I was able to get a dress and have it altered with two and a half months still to go before the wedding. And the dress looked BEAUTIFUL in all my photos. :-)

I used Davids Bridal for my Bridesmaids dresses and I was very pleased. They were very helpful finding me the dresses that I wanted and they arrived before there scheduled date. It was a very stress free experience. They also had the best selection of jewelry and shoes there. I bought all the jewelry for myself as well as my bridesmaids there.

I loved my wedding dress and it was a good value for how elaborate it was....same is true for my bridesmaids' dresses. And for the most part, the service was good. We did, however, run into some problems accommodating the alterations ( which was very disappointing ) and although most of the staff at the Champaign IL location was nice and professional, some of the other locations for this vendor ( in other states where my out-of-town bridesmaids shopped ) were completely appalling. There were several instances of nasty rudeness and a complete lack of effort by the employees to accommodate my out-of-town bridesmaids with mailing arrangements and situations of the like that often come up with this kind of planning. In fact, some of these problems nearly ruined the whole experience for me and my bridesmaids. So, to sum up, I would say that yes, the quality of the product was good, but the service could have been a whole lot better.

I had an excellent experience with David's Bridal. They became a huge life saver for me 3 weeks before my wedding. I had a bridesmaid tell me she could no longer be in the wedding so I had to ask another of my friends and we needed to get a dress for her fast. Unfortenately mine was being discontinued and they didn't know if they could get it in as quick as 2 weeks. They pulled through and We had it by a week. They helped me so much. They were also a huge help in finding my dress and jewerly. They were very inexpensive and they can always find something to fit your budget. They are always having a dress sale and they are so helpful with fittings.

This is where I found my dress, and I absolutely LOVE it! The ladies were very helpful in all areas, and they made trying on different dresses very simple and LOTS of fun! After we purchased the dress, David's Bridal was willing to keep the dress at the store until that evening while we shopped so the dress wouldn't have to sit in the hot car. My mother also purchased a lovely dress there that was perfect for the wedding. We were both very impressed and enjoyed using David's Bridal!

I wanted to use David's Bridal for both my dress and for all of my bridesmaids since they were coming from various parts of the country. I bought my dress at the Champaign location and received excellent service. However, my sister purchased her dress, shoes and purse at a location in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. They told her everything was ready, but when she went to pick it up, her shoes and purse hadn't been dyed. They told her to come back in a week. When she came back....they still weren't done. It took three tries to finally get the shoes and the dress.

Also, something to note, if your bridesmaids are all ordering from one location, the dresses will not be ordered until all bridesmaids have paid.

Bought the second dress I tried. The woman who was assigned to work with me was exceptionally friendly, and genuine. She wasn't snippy or oozing with artificial niceness! I showed her a few pictures of stuff I liked, and she took 10 minutes (or less) to grab a half dozen dresses. As I tried them on, and commented on them, she grabbed a few more, adapting her choices to more closely fit my preferences.
The strapless bra and slip that I tried on was the one I purchased. They don't have new ones to give you, so that was a little bit of a bummer. They weren't in bad shape, but it's tough to pay over $100 for underthings that have been worn by someone else...
MAKE THEM ORDER A DRESS FOR YOU. They will sell you the one you tried on, and if you have any beading or appliques, and look closely, threads are probably loose. Beads are probably missing. If you can do it quickly, and get a chance to be alone with the dress, put a tiny stitch in an underneath layer, or somehow mark it. It doesn't cost them any more to order you a *fresh* dress, and you're certainly paying for it.
I enjoyed the employee I worked with, and loved my dress. I'd been warned not to use DB for alterations, and found someone local to do that work. I advised all my b'maids to do the same, so I can't vouch for their alterations work--good or bad.
Oh, yes. Also: they put a tiara on my head, and of course, I loved it. The wire, plastic, and glued tiara was priced at $400 or something, and I knew that was ridiculous. My M of Honor found the same one on eBay for $40. Shop around--maybe hit Claire's or something, too. Same stuff!!!

I purchased my dress from David's; however, we used a different bridal shop for the bridesmaids' dresses. During the consultation, the sales person I was working with never really seemed to understand exactly what I was looking for, but we eventually found it -- and the best part was that it was ON SALE...a $1300 dress for $199 so I can't really complain too much!

David's Bridal's staff were wonderful! They were attentive during my dress selection and fittings and had great advice for how to find bridesmaid's dresses when my bridesmaids lived all over the country! We found a location near each of them and the dresses matched one another perfectly. My mother also found her dress there. The total spent included my dress, 5 other dresses and my accessories.
