The specialist who worked with me was very friendly and helped me find the perfect dress! I was also exited at the sale prices that allowed me to get a designer dress in my budget!

My wedding gown, bridal lingerie, shoes, bridemaids' dresses, mother-of-the-bride dress, invitations, and printed napkins were all purchased from David's Bridal. I absolutely love my gown--they have a good selection of plus size dresses for us brides with a little extra fluff ;) My only issue with attire was the BM dresses I chose for my girls are "special occassion" dresses and not part of the BM dress line. I would have liked to get those in the same shade as my shoes, but the color is close enough that I don't think anyone will notice. I would have prefered a bigger selection of flats since I'm the same height as my fiance--they only had one shoe style without a heel besides the tacky flip flops. The stationery was more expensive than I wanted to go, but I couldn't find better colors or designs for less, plus I was able to use the same design for my napkins. They arrived in a timely fashion and look perfect! Overall, I would reccommend David's Bridal to other brides.

The numbers could speak for themselves, but I will elaborate.

I went in to try on dresses around November or December of 2011. I found the dress that I wanted, an ordered it in the exact size of the dress that was on the showroom floor. When I tried that dress on, it was a little tight in the bust, but it zipped up and was comfortable everywhere else. I ordered the dress, in the same size but different color. I was told that it would be in by May.

The dress came in early (February) and I was excited. I tried it on and it was too small, to the point where it wouldn't even zip up. Since I was on a workout regiment I agreed to take the dress and the consultant (who was NOT the same consultant that I had when I originally ordered my dress) told me that there was no need to worry since I had ordered my dress so early that I would be fine to order another one or get alterations.

I went into the store the first week of June to get my alterations done and see what other final steps I needed to take to get my dress taken care of. The dress that was too small, actually zipped up, but it was too tight so I made an appointment to get alterations done. When I went to get my dress pinned, the seamstress told me that there was no way that the dress would ever fit, even if it was taken out to the maximum measurements. She also told me that I would bust the seams and basically ruin the dress if I tried to wear it. The dress needed to be taken out 2 3/4 inches and she told me that the dress allowed for that. But...the chiffon had a french seam and I would have to purchase additional chiffon to make the dress fit correctly. When asked about the price for chiffon she told me that David's did not sell fabric and that I would have to go match my own fabric and bring it to the seamstress.

Of course I was upset, so I got upset. The manager of the store came to calm me down. After telling her my issue, she proceeded to tell me that each color of the dress is made in a different factory and that sometimes the dresses aren't made to the same scale. Thinking that made no sense...I asked her what my options were. She said that I could order the dress in the next size up and that it would be back by 7/5 which was 9 days before my wedding. I told her that I guess that was what I was going to have to do and she looked up the dress in the computer. When she looked it up, she could not find a dress that would get back in time in the next size up so I had to order the dress two sizes too big. Because of that I had to pay $50 extra for an extended size when it wasn't even my mistake that the dress didn't fit.

When the dress came back I was called to come do a fitting and the dress was way too big. It was big enough for me to take off with the zipper zipped. Since my wedding was in a little over a week, I had to get alterations done. After pinning the dress...it had to be taken in almost 3 inches and cost me over $125. My original consultant was there that day and she looked to see if she could pull the original dress that i ordered, but it was no longer in the store. She actually apologized, but nothing else was ever done to compensate me for the time that I had to wait and all of the problems that I had.

I purchased my wedding dress. The dress was PERFECT for my destination wedding. It was priced moderately. I had it altered from a private party, Davids Bridal was to expensive for that. They were busy when I made my appointment and were not as attentive as I wanted but overall was ok.

I had a pretty good experience through David's Bridal except for the fact when I would make appointment's with my consultant should would not be available,and at first my consultant was not bringing me out my style of dresses. She finally stepped up the par. I loved me dressed I purchased from there. Absolutely stunning! :) Also my bridesmaids got their dresses there and I let them pick there dresses out...My girls were just absolutely fab looking! :) & the price paid was great!

I would not reccomend David's Bridal to anyone! Their prices are low, and you do get what you pay for. My dress was too short, but they couldn't order me a new one in a 4 month time frame. The alterations department was very helpful, however, the sales staff was lacking. I am big busted, and the bra they tried to sell me did not fit. They advised me that it was because I am large in the bust, and that wasn't their problem. Worst service ever!

The consultant we had wasn't very friendly, kind of rude, and didn't listen to my wants or needs, she just wanted to sell a dress and as many accessories as she could as quickly as she could.

I was looking for the perfect wedding dress for my sunset beach wedding that would be held in Pass-A-Grille (st. pete) Florida. I was amazed that the very first dress I picked out was the one! It wasn't even a wedding gown- it was a ball gown! It was the perfect color (Ivory), with a vintage look...Just what I wanted! Laverne was super helpful! Great experience!

David's bridal was an affordable option for my dress. They did call me all the time too and it was rather annoying. There is good customer service and then there is stalking. They were a little on the stalker side. But still I loved my dress and that is all that matters.

I will never buy anything from this place again. Not only did they call me nonstop, but they also called 5 times to set up an appointment for alterations AFTER I had one set up. Then when I got there on the day of the appointment they couldn't find my name in their appointment book. My dress was reasonably priced I guess but I spent over $200.00 in alterations that consisted of a hem at the bottom and the strap that went around my neck had to be shortened. When the dress came in, there were all kinds of strings hanging from it and when I asked for them to remove them, the sales person had an attitude. If you can get you dress from somewhere else, I reccommend you do it.

Actually, it was a okay experience. They said that my bridesmaids dresses I picked would work out. I was very optimistic until the deadline to order came up (six weeks) and my girls went to order it and they changed to order date to 12 weeks! I was very upset, but I rolled with the punches and ordered my second option. When it came to picking out the shoes a whole other issue arose. A sales person said the shoes had a 20.00 discount on them...yeah that wasn't true when we went to order them. I saythe cons out way the pros for this vendor.

I would recommend David's Bridal to anyone. There was a professional wedding consultant to help me through every step. She showed me where my sizes were located once I informed her what style of dress I wanted. She helped me through the whole process of trying on my dress. She also helped with my accessories such as my veil, shoes, jewelry, and garter. I brought my six year old son with me during this experiance and she was very patient and even entertained him somewhat. I believe David's Bridal can help with the simplest wedding like mine or handle a very large wedding and all it's intricacies. Not only were they very helpful but there was a vast selection of any wedding convenience with the luxury of one-stop shopping.

I was completely satsified with David's Bridal until I left my dress with the alterations "specialist". The women that work in alterations at this facility are horribley rude and have no concept of customer service. Don't bother leaving your dress there ahead of time with the expectation that you will get it back sooner. It took them 9 weeks to get my dress altered. My dress sat in their backroom collecting dust until they were "able to get to it". They don't bother with alterations for your dress until it gets close to your wedding date. The associates at this store are amazing and the staff up front was very helpful, however, I would not recommend getting alterations done here! Go somewhere else!!!!

I LOVE Davids Bridal! The very first dress I tried on was the one that I ended up picking. And, the best part is that the dress fit me right off the rack! The lady was a little pushy, and gave me a sob story about her family...I am assuming to try and get me to buy the most expensive dress. Anyhow, they were a great help in getting me into each dress, and trying on veils and the sort. It was a good experience overall, and I would definitely recommended them to anyone.
